It is mentioned in a late Allegany paper, that the Steam-Boat William D. Duncan, of 110 tons, came up the Allegany river from Pittsburgh, a few days before, 10 miles above Franklin, and within 40 miles of Warren, to which place she intended to have come; but the water falling suddenly, the captain thought it prudent to return. There were on board about 200 passenger and some freight. The Warren Gazette states, that another steam-boat of 60 tons is expected to start for that place in a few days.

It may be well to observe, that Warren, in Pennsylvania, is about 12 miles from the south line of this state, and 70 miles from Olean.

If by any contemplated improvements, this river should be accessible to Steamboats from Pittsburgh, it would open a most valuable commerce, in the wares and manufactures of that place, and give another item of importance to our canal revenue, for the result of the Gonewango application, will be to complete that link of the great internal chain; make it practicable to communicate between Pittsburgh and Albany in 12 days! - Signs of the Times.
