WINTER AND SUMMER LINE OF OPPOSITION STAGES, from Niagara to Ft. Erie and Buffalo, running DAILY on the River Road, through Queenston, Stamford, Drummondville, City of the Falls, Chippewa, &c.

Leaving Niagara every morning after the arrival of the Canada Steam Packet, at 12 o'clock, M., being in time to take the Steam Boat Caroline, at Chippewa, for Buffalo, or the Stage to Fort Erie, reaching both of the above places at 6 o'clock, P.M.


This Line of Stages was established in the winter, after the Old Line had hauled off their teams, on account of the bad state of the roads. The only desire of the subscriber having been to accommodate the publick during that inclement season of the year, with a safe, easy, expeditious and cheap mode of conveyance, he feels confident that a discerning publick will appreciate his exertions, and (during the summer at least,) reward him with a liberal patronage.

One word more.--Since certain masters of steamboats on the Lower Lake have refused to allow our agents on their boats, and become runners for the other line of stages, the travelling community are particularly cautioned, as well against paying their fare to the other line agents on the Boats, as against receiving such represent[...] opposition have failed, that there is no opposition- -that they are authorised to receive fare for the opposition." &c. &c.

Persons travelling from below will do well not to pay their passage until they arrive in Niagara, where by taking the opposition they may be sure of a cheap and more expeditious conveyance than by the other line, as the passengers are put on board the Splendid Steam boat Caroline, at Chippewa, which is now plying Daily between the above places, leaving Buffalo at 8 o'clock, A.M., and arriving at Chippewa, at 11 the same morning. Returning, leaves Chippewa at 3 o'clock, P.M. and arrives at Buffalo at 6 the same evening.

T BRUNDAGE, Proprietor.

Chippewa, May 27.
