NEW STEAM SCHOONER CHICAGO
This beautiful and staunch vessel which has just been completed at the shipyard of S. Doolittle, and propelled by the Ericsson improvement, leaves this port for Chicago, this day. She was built with particular reference to this route - has handsome and convenient accommodations for sixty cabin passengers, and of sufficient capacity for 150 tons of freight. She is to be commanded by our fellow citizen William S. Malcolm, whose nautical skill, experience and gentlemanly deportment, eminently qualify him for that post.
We learn that the enterprising proprietors Messrs. Bronson & Crocker, intend to despatch a steam vessel of the above class, for Chicago, on the 1st, 10th and 20th of each month, touching intermediate ports on Lakes Erie, Huron and Michigan, thus affording unusual facilities for the conveyance and transportation of passengers and freight. it seems to us that travellers, particularly families, moving with their goods, will find this line of boats admirably adapted to their wants. The price by this line is much less than by any other steam conveyance, which is a consideration in these times.
