The Excursion Party

The wharf, piazzas, wood-piles, and everything to which a footing could be obtained, were alive with humanity last evening, to witness the departure of the excursion party on board the America, Capt. Masson. City Hacks commenced dropping down excursionists at the boat at an early hour, and continued arriving full, for over an hour, from which we should judge there were upwards of thee hundred on board when the boat left. The delegations from the neighboring cities of Utica, Syracuse, and village of Fulton, were, we should think quite large. Among the latter was the Fulton Brass Band, which volunteered its services for the occasion. Our own citizens turned out in good round numbers, among whom were many of the "heavy men of Oswego." Gen. Hull, of the Times and Journal was also among the number and we now have full away which will account for the lofty tone of this, and one or two succeeding numbers of the paper. The America passed out of the harbor with steamers flying, and music from the Band.
