This company has completed its arrangements for running a daily line of propellers between Ogdensburg and Oswego, and Detroit and Cleveland, during the coming season. The line consists of fourteen first-class propellers, and it is expected that others will be added.* Arrangements have been completed by which shippers can forward by said vessels if they should wish. In addition to the daily line to Detroit, there will be a tri-weekly line from Ogdensburg and Oswego to ports on Lake Michigan. Mr. E. R. Mathews still continues to act as agent for the line in this city.

*Probable list of the propellers: BUCKEYE, GRANITE STATE, NORTHERN MICHIGAN, OGDENSBURGH, POTOMAC, WISCONSIN, YOUNG AMERICA, BAY STATE, LADY OF THE LAKE, MICHIGAN, VERMONT, PRAIRIE STATE, JEFFERSON, CLEVELAND
