Full Text

THE "STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS" - The Oswego Palladium says: This is the name of a new vessel of the first class (A.1.) now lying in the harbor receiving her outfit. She was built at Sackett's Harbor, is owned by Willard Johnson, Esq, of Fulton, and is to be commanded by Capt. Monroe Turner one of neptune's truest sons. Her name is significant of success and good fortune, and appropriate, as the Democratic nominee for the Presidency was never beaten during the whole of his long and active public career, and he has ever been the advocate and supporter in every possible way, of the Commerce of the Lakes, and of Rivers and Harbor Improvements. Give us Stephen A. Douglas for President, and the piers and harbors of the chain of lakes will speedily be put in good, safe and durable condition. In this respect it should be the desire of every man who has an interest in the prosperity of Lake Commerce to give his best energies and efforts in support of Mr. Douglas. This no man knows and appreciates more than Mr. Willard Johnson, the owner of this new craft.
