Port Of Cleveland - Arrived schr. Congress, Throop, from Oswego, with 389 packages merchandise. What kind of merchandise? Grindstones, or salt? Buffalo Daily Star.

The schr. Congress, from Oswego to this port, brought neither salt, nor grindstones, nor ballast, but 389 packes of bona fide merchandise, as we learn on enquiry. With the controversy between Buffalo and Oswego papers, about the lake trade, we have nothing to do. But while the great majority of vessels from Buffalo bring only ballast, it strikes us as in bad taste for the Star to sneer at the lading of Oswego vessels. Even "grindstones, or salt" is better than ballast. - Cleveland Herald
