Full Text

The Fourth will be celebrated at Hensler's Grove on Grand Island, by the teachers and pupils of the Public Schools of Erie County. The Rev. J. Hyatt Smith is to be the orator of the day.
      The Association will furnish passage by boat to and from Tonawanda, and the tickets issued by them (for sale in different towns, and at T. Butler's 159 Main St.) includes this with the entertainment. We are informed that the stm. RELIEF, owned by Mr. G.H. Wright, of Grand Island, will run from Lower Black Rock to the place of celebration, leaving immediately on the arrival of the 9:00 express train from Buffalo, fare 25 cents. This will
be a favorite route for guests from the city, affording a delightful sail of about 8 miles upon one of the noblest rivers in the world.
