Full Text

The fine little stmb. H.L. WORTHINGTON, built last season at Black River, and which made her first trip here some time during the last summer arrived in port yesterday noon with 25,000 bu. wheat consigned to Messrs. Whitney & Gibson of Central Wharf.
During the winter considerable additions have been made to her, she is now a double- decker, which nearly doubles her carrying capacity, and she has been nicely painted and fitted out, including a comfortable pilot house, forward and handsome cabins and officers quarters aft, all heated by steam and fitted with every regard to comfort and conveneince.
      She has some improvement forward we think could be adopted with advantage by every steamboat company and owner on the lakes, and that is a bridge in front of her pilot house extending from rail to rail. It gives the master a better opportunity of seeing where he is going, especially when coming alongside a wharf or running through a crowded harbor. She is commanded by Capt. C.H. Cummings, last season in the schr. QUEEN CITY, who holds an interest in her.
