p.2 Steamer Genessee Chief - We understand, says the Rochester American, that this splendid vessel has been sold to G.W. Pratt and J.W. Bissell, Esqrs., who will start for California during this month. She will be thoroughly coppered in Montreal, and her upper deck taken off, and in every respect made as perfect as possible. She will be fitted up to accommodate 75 passengers, will have an experienced physician on board, and from present appearances will make a quick trip. The Chief is a propeller, on the Erickson principle, of about 500 tons burthen, was built at Rochester 4 years ago, and is one of the best of that class of vessels on the lakes. She can make from eight to ten miles an hour. Her accommodations are excellent.
