      Pleasure Excursion.--The reader’s attention is invited to the advertizement of a pleasure excursion, of that staunch and commodious steamer, the Indiana, to the Upper Lakes. Her officers are first rate men, and the trip must be delightful.

      Pleasure Excursion to the Upper Lakes.-- The beautiful light draft, low pressure Steamer Indiana, C. C. Roby, master, will make an excursion to the Saut Ste Marie and other prominent points upon the Upper Lakes, on the 16th July. The Indiana is a staunch new boat, well found, and carries with her all the requisite appliances necessary to guard against and protect the company from accident. She will touch at all the important places on Lake Erie, Huron and Michigan. Ample time will be afforded the passengers for visiting Macinac, Green Bay, Manitou Islands, Milwaukie, Racine, Southport, and Beaver Island, Grand and Little Traverse Bay, and Saut Ste Marie.-- She is expected to be at Grand Traverse Bay, when the Indians assemble there to receive their regular annuities. The Indiana is fitted up in elegant style, has a large upper cabin--spacious staterooms for families--and will vie with any other boat navigating the Lakes. A good band of music will accompany the boat, and every exertion used by the officers to render the trip safe and agreeable. For passage apply to
Hughes, Parsons & Co, Buffalo
      Pease & Allen, Cleveland
      Dorr, Webb, & Co, Detroit
      J. N. Elbert, Detroit
      J. M. Hughes, Albany.
