p.3 A Line of Vessels to Run Between Chicago & Liverpool - The Chicago Tribune says:- We are gratified at the announcement which appears in some of the papers that a line of first class packets is advertised to run between this port and England, commencing in April next. Of the successful issue of this movement we entertain no shadow of doubt. The first class barques Etowah, Capt. David Tucker; Ravenna, Capt. John Johnson; and Wirralite, Capt. John Jennings, well known on our lakes, have been purchased for this purpose and altered and arranged to adapt them to the ocean and lake service in compliance with the rules and regulations laid down by the Lloyd surveyors, and policies of insurance can therefore be effected on goods shipped on these vessels on the same terms as the ocean vessels runnng between European ports and the Atlantic cities. The brig Cressington and the new bark Thermutis, now building at Cleveland, will also be in this line.
