p.2 The Lake Superior Region - man drowns from steamer Franklin.


It may be seen by reference to our columns, that S.T. Hooker of our village, has put up for California, the fine staunch Brig Iroquois, to sail about the first of September, direct from this place. This is a good chance for those young men without money, who want to seek their fortune in the land of Gold. The Iroquois will sail down the St. Lawrence thro' the Gulf, and thence south, touching probably at some of the West India Islands, thence around Cape Horn. She is a fine vessel, and capable of carrying quite a number of passengers, besides a good cargo of Merchandise, Lumber, etc.

This is one of the new things under the sun, though we see nothing in it impracticable or visionary, and doubt not it will make good returns to those investing their property in the adventure. Success to the undertaking. [Observer]
