Full Text

The propeller "Lady of the Lake," Capt. Rosman, arrived here last evening from Ogdensburgh, full of freight and passengers for Chicago. She had been advertised here and a large number of emigrants had collected and were waiting, with their furniture, in this city to take passage by the propeller, but few of them could get room on board. She left last evening, crowded with some three or four hundred souls on board, leaving one hundred or more here who could not obtain passage. This difficulty will be soon overcome, as, when the steam vessels get in line, there will be one or more leaving this port nearly every day during the season. The crowd of emigrants going west seems larger than in any previous season.
