      Jedediah Rogers, Master,
      Will sail from Buffalo for Detroit on or about the second Tuesday of May next, and thereafter, during the season, will leave Buffalo or Black Rock for Detroit on Tuesday of every week, at 9 o'clock, A.M., and Detroit for Buffalo every Friday, at 4 o'clock P.M. and will stop to land and receive passengers at Erie, Grand River, Cleaveland, and Sandusky unless prevented by stress of weather. The Boat will make a Trip to Michillimackinac, and leave Buffalo for that purpose, between the first and twentieth days of June, next.
      This Boat has been built since December last, under the personal supervision of Capt. Rogers. In ber construction it has been the principal object to combine superior strength, speed, and accommodations for passengers. This object, especially as to strength, it is believed has been fully attained, no expense having been spared. With respect to provisions, stops, and attendance, it is only necessary to say, that the new boat will not disgrace her name. If it should be found necessary to make a second trip to Mackinac, or one to Green Bay, reasonable notice will be given.
      Puruant to a resolution of the Board of Directors of the Lake Erie Steamboat Company, notice is hereby given, that all goods, wares, and merchandize, furntiure, plate, jewels, and
specie, which may be shipped or transported on board of the Steam Boat SSUPERIOR, shall be at the risk of the respective owners or shippers, thereof; and the said Company, or the stockholders, will not pay not hold themselves, either individually or as a Company, liable or responsible for any loss or damage which may: happen in the shipment, transportation or delivery of any of the articles aforesaid and that the Captain of the said Steam-Boat is
to receive no freight, exceptions on the conditions in this resolution mentioned.
      J. I. Ostrander, Sec' ry.
