Full Text

The side-wheel propeller BALTIC, Capt. James Averell, which has been out of commission since 1855, arrived here yesterday afternoon at 3:00 from Buffalo. She has recently been thoroughly overhauled, refitted and painted, and is intended to ply during the remainder of the season between this city and Buffalo as a freight and passenger carrier, though possibly may make one trip to Chicago. She was built in 1847 a sidewheel passenger steamer, and run some years between Buffalo and Chicago, and first commanded by Capt. L.H. Colton, now of the BURLINGTON. In the early part of 1855, her mode of propulsion was changed by the introduction of Whittaker's patent side screw, and run the greater part of that year under the command of her present Captain, since which she has been laid by. She left Buffalo on her present trip up on Wednesday at 3:00 and Erie 6:00 P.M., arriving here as above noted which may be considered good running time. She is freighted here by Duncan Stewart, Esq., for Buffalo, leaving here tonight or early tomorrow morning.
