p.2 The Propeller Oswego, of Doolittle & Mollison's line left last evening for Milwaukee and Chicago, with 200 tons of Merchandize and near 200 passengers, mostly emigrants from Norway, who came by New York and the Hudson. Large numbers of emigrants are passing by this route to the west, it being found the cheapest and most comfortable.

This is also becoming more and more the route of the fashionable and pleasure travel between the east and the Falls. The splendid day boats between this and Lewiston, are well patronized. The Ontario, Capt. Throop, took a large load yesterday from the express train, which was in promptly at 4 P.M. from Albany. [Oswego Times]
