p.3 The Great Britain, Capt. Whitney, arrived here this morning from Prescott on her usual route to Oswego and the upper ports. This noble vessel, we are happy to observe, had a number of cabin and steerage passengers on board, besides a large quantity of freight of various kinds. Some enemies of the boat have within the last few days been circulating a report that she was to be laid up at Prescott until the business of the season would increase. We are this morning assured by Capt. Whitney that there is not the slightest foundation for the rumor. The public may therefore rest satisfied that the Great Britain will continue her trips with her well known regularity and promptness throughout the season. [Chronicle]
