Capt. Buttercup,

This fast sailing, barge built, canvass-bottomed, pitch-fastened steamer has been chartered for California, and will be ready to take in passengers to any extent, on or before the first of April. This superb craft will have an excellent table, with abundance of wine, her port holes being fitted up expressly with one port in each; and arrangements have been made to boil grog instead of water, so that there will be a constant supply of the delicious beverage throughout the entire passage. For freight or passage, apply to Jack-in-the-Box, Kingston, any day before the 1st of April.

Kingston, March 7th, 1849.
