Lake Ontario Steamboats. - The steamboat Oneida, which is under the charge of Capt. A. Smith, her former able commander, commenced her regular trips between Ogdensburgh and Lewiston on Thursday last. She has undergone a thorough repair and now presents a neat and improved appearance.

The William IV commenced her trips on Saturday last and arrived at this port on Sunday. She is to play this season between Prescott and Queenston touching at this port. She is an excellent boat and is under the charge of Capt. Hilliard her former commander.

The United States, commenced her trips between Ogdensburgh and Lewiston this day and continues under the command of Capt. Van Cleve, formerly known to the public as a gentleman and an experienced seaman.

The steamboats Great Britain, Oswego, Sir Robert Peel and Telegraph will toouch at this port on their trips during the season; but as their arrangements are not yet completed we are not able to speak definitely in regard to them. The probability is, (in fact it is reduced almost to a certainty) that at least one of the above boats will leave this port daily both for Niagara and Ogdensburgh, thus affording travellers facilities, greatly superior to what have been enjoyed on this lake.
