The Erie Canal Navigation Company have added to their line the Chancellor Kent and Benjamin Wright, two new, well finished boats, and made such other arrangements as will ensure travelers a cheap, expeditious and pleasant passage to Albany, during the season when traveling in stages is rendered uncomfortable and inconvenient by the bad state of the weather and the roads. There are now eight excellent boats in this line, which, it is said, perform their trips between Rochester and utica, in forty-eight hours, and sometimes quicker.


New article for transportation. - A boat arrived here last evening, from Rochester, having on board three hundred live hogs, on their way o Connecticut -- on a "peddling voyage."
