Oswego, May 13, 1854.

Oswego is emphatically the Queen city of the Lake. In a commercial point of view, she is considered one of the most important ports on the chain of lakes. In the receipts of wheat and lumber, and shipments of flour and lumber, Oswego takes the lead of Buffalo. The foreign trade of Oswego is large, and rapidly increasing. The principal imports from Canada to this port are flour, wheat, and the products of the forest. The receipts of Canadian lumber, last year, amounted to over one hundred and twenty million feet. .From what I can learn by reliable authority, the receipts this season will not be so large. The American steamers on Lake Ontario are doing a larger business than ever before. The travel to the West, this spring, is unprecedentedly large. Passengers are ticketed through from Oswego, to all the Western ports. Mr. Charles E. Young, at the Steamboat office, is the agent for the Michigan Southern Road, of whom tickets can be procured. Mr. Y. is extensively known among the traveling public, and has hosts of friends through the principal traveled routes. He is a gentleman every way pleasing to the traveler, and of whom the Southern Michigan Road may well feel proud. A Traveler.
