Oswego, August 7.
The Steam Boat Ontario, Capt. Mallaby, touched here this morning from Niagara on her way to Sackets harbor, Ogdensburgh, &c. She was so much crowded with passengers that the captain was under the necessity of leaving a number of applicants at Niagara, for want of more extensive accommodations. Among those left was the Russian minister and suite.
It could scarcely have been anticipated by the most sanguine friends of the steam-boat establishment on this lake, that this route would be so soon have become so fashionable, although all particularly acquainted with the accommodations of the steam boat, the experience and politeness of Capt. Mallaby, as well as the beauty and novelty of the scenery on the passage, knew it could not be otherwise than pleasant.
