The Trip in November to depend on the state of the weather. Passengers will be landed and received at Erie, Grand River, Cleaveland and Sandusky, as usual, unless prevented by stress of weather. If a trip should be made to the Upper Lakes this season, due notice will be given. The Boat has been put in complete order, and it is believed there will be no disappointment in the regular sailing of the boat during the season, accidents excepted. With respect to accommodations, stores and attendance, it is only necessary to say, they will be as usual. Capt. Rogers having discontinued to be the Master of the Boat, the Company have filled that station by the appointment of Capt. ROBERT S. BUNKER, whose experience in this line of business, whose promptness and gentlemanly manners, they hope and believe will recommend him to the favorable opinion of the public.
