Full Text

The opening of navigation has imparted new life and energy to every branch of trade and commerce. A flood of travel is beginning to pour into the city by lake and from the east and west. Our streets are thronged with busy, anxious men engaged in commercial pursuits, and eagerly watching the fluctuations of the markets. Merchants from Canada and Northern New York are daily passing through the city on their way to the great emporium of trade, and already vast quantities of merchandise is arriving by railroad for the lower ports. But beyond this the season of greater travel is approaching, In a few weeks the large cities will pour themselves into the country, for diversion more than business. To and fro from centre to circumference, travel will be the all engrossing movement. The reduction of fare on the railroads is increasing travel to an unprecedented extent while the improved facilities for conveyance by land and water renders it a luxury which may be enjoyed by all.
