p.2 Free Passage of the Brig Eureka Down the St. Lawrence - Permission has been obtained from the British Government at London, for the brig Eureka of Cleveland, to pass down the St. Lawrence on a voyage to California, and she is advertised to sail for San Francisco on or about the 20th September next. A gentleman at Cleveland interested in the enterprise writes under date of Aug. 9th, to a Commercial House in this city, that "he has the documents from London, Eng. dated May 9, 1840 (sic) granting the Eureka leave to pass out through the St. Lawrence, into the Atlantic; and she is now fitting out, and will pass through your lake about the 1st October."

The price fixed for passage in the Cabin is $200, and application for passage and freight will be received by the advertised agents to the day of sailing. [Oswego Times]
