Mr. Editor: - Sir, I esteem it a duty I owe to the traveling community to speak of the kind attention of Capt. Gardener, of the Canal packet "Herkimer," plying between this place and Syracuse, and can freely state that for energy of character, and such as required immediate decision, i scarcely know his equal. His table is bountifully supplied with all the delicacies the market affords, and calculated to please the most fastidious epicure; add to which the order of assiduity of his attendants to render every thing comfortable, renders the "Herkimer" a desirable means of conveyance to or from this place to Syracuse. Capt. G. takes a pleasure in pointing out all objects worthy of note en route, and being a disciple of "Isaac Walton," he is extravagantly fond of "fly fishing," and therefore, fully competent to give his passengers a dissertation on the piscatory inhabitants of these waters. I would, therefore, advice all those in search of the beautiful and picturesque to take a trip with him; and on their arrival at this place to stop at the "Oswego City Hotel," of which Mr. Garrison is the gentlemanly proprietor, and they will find all the comforts of home.
