Steam-Boat on the Canal. - A Steam-Boat passed this place, to the west, on the 5th inst. Her speed was supposed to be about four miles per hour, and it was judged by those who noticed her, that the agitation of the water, caused by the wheel of the boat, would not be so injurious to the banks of the canal, as the swell which attends a boat drawn by horses, at the same speed.
