From the Lockport Democrat
Lewiston, 20th April, 1841.

Editor of the Democrat - Sir: On arriving here yesterday, I was agreeably surprised o find my old friend Joseph Whitney, installed as landlord of the Frontier, and discharging the duties of that station in his kind and obliging manner. Captain Whitney was for many years he commander of the steamboat Great Britain, afterwards of he United States: in that capacity he formed a numerous acquaintance with travellers from every quarter of the world, and rendered himself esteemed. In his new undertaking I have no doubt he will be equally well sustained.

The Frontier House has been renovated throughout, and presents a greatly improved appearance. The Captain continues in command of the United States, (which plies between here and Oswego) but in his absence the house is left in charge of a competent superintendent; and travellers, who wish the ensuing summer, to enjoy the beautiful scenery of this region, will, I doubt not, find it a desirable stopping place. A TRAVELLER.
