THAT WHALE. - A white whale is on its route from the seaboard to Chicago via the Erie Canal. His whaleship was started from New York in the hold of a canal boat, and is expected to reach Buffalo the 14th of July. The detention is caused by the fact that the owner exhibits the whale to the curious at places of importance along the route. He pays $5 per day for the use of the canal boat, and is said to have reaped quite a harvest thus far. Soon after his arrival at Buffalo, the whale will be placed in a tank on board of a propeller and transported to Chicago for exhibition.
