New Steam Boat.--A Company has recently been formed under the title of “The Buffalo and Chippawa Steam Ferry-Boat Company,” for the purpose of building and putting in operation a Steam Ferry-Boat to ply between Buffalo Creek and Fort Eire, and Buffalo Creek and Chippawa, U.C. The stock of the company is $7000, one half of which is held in this village, and the remainder at Chippawa. The boat will be put in operation in June next, and will make one trip from Buffalo Creek to Chippewa for the accommodation of passengers, each day during the navigable season, exclusive of her trips to Fort Erie, as a ferry boat. The affairs of the company are to be under the guidance of six directors, chosen annually, in December, one half to reside in Canada, and the other half on this side of the river. The first election has been had, and the following gentlemen are directors for the ensuing year, viz:--James Macklem, Samuel Street and Gilbert M’Micking, of Chippawa; and Thaddeus Joy, Ebenezer Johnson and William T. Miller, of this town.
