New Ferry Boat - The horse boat that has for some time been fitting up for the ferry between this town and Youngstown, is now in full operation, and will be much safer, and more comfortable for both man and horse to pass the river, than the former method by boats and scow.- The road up the banks on both sides of the river, are in good order, and of easy ascent in every respect. This is now the safest and most pleasant, and convenient ferry on the river between the two lakes. The boat is propelled by three horses and crosses the river in a very short time; she will arrive from Youngstown every morning before 7 o'clock, before the Canada sets out for York, and will be in readiness on the arrival of that boat to carry over any passengers that may wish to go to the U. States. In the course of the day it is intended that she shall ply with littler intermission from both sides of the river. - Niagara Gleaner
