Full Text

The Packet Boats of the Erie Canal Company are now running regularly from Schenectady to Buffalo, without change of boats. The boats have been re-fitted in an elegant manner, and placed under experienced and gentlemanly commanders.


    A boat will leave here every day at 6 A.M. for the East, and at 5 P.M. for the West. The fare from Schenectady to Buffalo, including board, is $5 - from this city to Buffalo, $3.

     The names of the Packets and their Captains are as follows: Monterey, A. Luther; Mohawk, N.D. Lynds; Little Falls, C. Sherwood; Buena Vista, G.W. Green; Oregon, J. Rankins; Montezuma, N. Starin. The entire line is under the superintendence of Capt. Austin Myers, whose qualifications and experience in the business is a guaranty that travelers will find every thing in apple-pie order.
