The following steamers in their regular order have respectively plied there: Steamers Baltimore, Southern, Forest City, St. Louis, May Queen, Cleveland, Sam Ward, Pacific, Buckeye State, Ocean, City of Cleveland, Morning Star, R. N. Rice, and Northwest. But little or no change has taken place in the agency meantime, and for so a long period not more than two or three unavoidable accidents have taken place.
