      American Tranportation Co. - By refernce to our advertising column, it will
be seen that this extensive company is now fully organized and ready for the
transaction of business. The capital is $900,000, and the company is
composed of the best business men on the western lakes. The object of the
organization is to afford a cheaper, quicker and better means of
transporting freight to and from N.Y. and western ports, which can, with the
facilities here offered, most certainly be accomplished. The company have
purchased all the propellers and canal boats, heretofore owned by 9
different companies, and their former owners have become stockholders in
this company. On the lakes 5 different lines of propellers (22 in all) will
be run as follows:
      A line of 8 between Buffalo and Chicago, another 5 between Buffalo and
Milwaukee, 1 of 5 between Buffalo and Detroit, 1 of 6 between Buffalo,
Toledo and Sandusky, and 1 of 3 between Buffalo and Cleveland, touching at
all intermediate ports. Goods will be shipped seperately at New York, for
each of these lines thereby ensuring greater dispatch and avoiding all
delays at warehouses and dangers from handling &c.
