Increase Of Passengers On The Oswego Route - The following is copied from a letter, just received by a friend, in Oswego: -

Steamer Vandalia, Cleveland, Oct. 4, 1842 Dear Sir - I arrived at this port, this day, after a rather rough passage from the Welland Canal. You will recollect that the Vandalia was nearly filled up with passengers when we left Oswego - at Pultneyville, however, we took on eight or ten more, and at the Welland Canal, two families of twenty more joined us, and I thought that all the room I had was filled up, but, after getting out on Lake Erie, I found we had space for one small passenger more, and Mrs. Bartlett (emigrating West) turned out a fine daughter, off Portland, and named her "Vandalia". The mother and child are very smart, and are going through with us.

Your's, in haste.
