Welcome News For the Shipping Interests - We learn that the Chicago Mutual and Garden City Insurance Companies of this city, and the Star Insurance Company of Ogdensburgh, are building at Buffalo one of the best steam tugs on the lakes to bring vessels into this harbor at all times, even during the heaviest gales. She will be here on the opening of navigation. Her cost, with steam pumps from New York, will be about $35,000; and her power will be such that vessels can beat up this port in any weather, with the certainty of being brought safely in.
