FORWARDING NOTICE.

The Union Forwarding Company hereby give notice that their new and fast sailing Iron Steamers

EMERALD AND OREGON,

With the Union Rail-Road,

Are now in operation, and plying as under:

STEAMER EMERALD,

Capt. T. Cuming,

Upwards - Leaves Aylmer every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, at 7 o'clock A.M.

Downwards - Leaves the Rail-Road immediately after the arrival of the Cars from the steamer Oregon, and arrives at Aylmer at 4 o'clock P.M.

STEAMER OREGON,

Capt. M. Hilliard,

Downwards - Leaves Portage du Fort every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, at half-past six o'clock A.M.; returning leaves Union Village immediately after the arrival of the Cars from the steamer Emerald.

Both Boats touch at all stopping places en route each way.

They also give notice that no Freight will be received on board their Steamers if not properly Marked and Way-Billed; and not after 11 o'clock P.M., at Aylmer, on the night previous to sailing - any coming to hand after that time must remain in store until the ensuing trip. They do this to prevent property being loosely and carelessly thrown on Board by owners without Bill or Mark - consequently not entered.

They will not be responsible for any property without being duly entered, and a receipt granted.

Agent Union Forwarding Company.
