The Steam Boat Henry Clay,
W. NORTON, Master

Will sail from Buffalo for Green Bay, on the 7th of August, at 9 o'clock in the morning, and leave Detroit on the 10th--touching at the intermediate ports, and resuming her station again in the line, at Detroit, on the 19th.

The Clay is an admirable sea boat, and her performance during the late voyage to the Sault St. Marie [sic] and Green Bay, has been complimented in the strongest terms of approbation, by every one of her numerous and respectable passengers who represented the trip as having been a most delightful one, notwithstanding they were out in the late severe gale.

The master of the Clay does not "expect" merely, but has actually contracted to bring back Governor Cass and his party from the treaty now holding at Green Bay. Those gentlemen therefore, whose visit to the lakes may in any degree be influenced by a desire to see a collection of the natives of the far west, will do well to imtrove this opportunity, as the Indians will probably disperse on the arrival of the Clay.

Black Rock, July 5th, 1827.
