Direct Trade Between The Lakes and Europe - Extensive arrangements have been perfected by Montreal capitalists for the establishment of a direct line between western ports and Europe. It is announced that a line of fifteen first-class propellers will immediately go into commission. Chicago and Milwaukee will be the western termini. The steamers have a carrying capacity of 15,000 bushels of grain. There will be only one transhipment between the lake ports and Europe - at Montreal. The tariff of freights to be adopted is 25 cents per 100 pounds for 4th class goods, and dry goods, all classes, 30 cents per 100 pounds, gold. The average time between Liverpool and the west will be 16 to 20 days. All delays on customs account will be avoided, and the total customs charges on the route will be only $1 per invoice - the goods going into bond at the port of delivery, and duty being paid at destination.
