The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Oswego Palladium (Oswego, NY), Thursday June 12, 1856

Full Text

This season bids fair to outstrip all preceding ones in the extent of commercial business at Oswego. Our harbor and docks have been a constant scene of bustle and activity, ever since navigation opened. The harbor is continually crowded with steamboats, propellers, vessels and canal boats, the docks are lined with merchandise from the east, discharging and loading; the elevators are all drove hare up to keep along with the rush of produce from the West, and the lumber yards are bristling with huge piles of lumber from Canada, discharging and loading. It is really a matter of interest to take a stroll along the docks any day, and witness the vast amount of property that is constantly afloat, and going and coming, and waiting for its turn of shipment east and west. The quantity of merchandise that will pass through this city, this season, for Canada and the west, will double, perhaps, quadruple any former season, and the forwarders, we doubt not are reaping a golden harvest.
