The Fourth

Saturday morning we preached a short sermon on our great national day, the Fourth of July.-- ...There will be excursions on the Lake by the splendid steamers Ohio and Indiana. They leave the docks at 9 o'clock, so be on hand early with clean "bibs and tuckers," you who expect to go. There will be music and dancing and love making. The cars, on the Niagara road, go down to the Falls at half price. ...

The steam Ferry boat, Maid of the Mist, will ply during the day between Bellevue Landing, near the whirlpool, and the Horse Shoe falls, making trips from 8 o'clock in the morning, till 5 P.M. These trips will be something new and grand.
