She left Marine City on Monday morning, thus occupying something over twenty-four hours on the voyage, coming via the south passage. After crossing the Flats and was delayed by ice until an east wind fortunately sprang up, driving the ice from the north shore which she took advantage of, thus meeting with but little or no opposition.

Gratiot, Gen. Jackson, O. Newberry, Gen. Brady, Gen. Macomb, Erie, Huron, Red Jacket, Telegraph No. 2, Telegraph No. 1, Fashion, F. Moore, Chautaque, Fairport, Swan, Gen.
