Northern Transportation Company - This popular Company is first in the field this season for the accommodation of the traveling and business community. During the past winter, many improvements and conveniences have been made upon their propellers. State-rooms have been added and other arrangements made for the accommodation of first class passengers, and other improvements made for the convenience and comfort of steerage passengers.
The YOUNG AMERICA, which left here Thursday evening, for Chicago, had the appearance of a new craft, having received the artistic touches of painter and carpenters during the winter. her commander, Capt. Chapman, is deservedly popular with the traveling and business public, and a more experienced one is not to be found upon the lakes. The same may be said of all the gentlemen having charges of the steamers belonging to this Company. The Ogdensburgh, Capt. Richardson, leaves this afternoon, for the Upper Lakes, with a heavy freight and full passenger list.
