Lake Ontario Steamboats

Those splendid steamboats the Great Britain and the United States have commenced their trips for the season, and will stop at this Port both on their upward and downward passage. The former is under the command of her old and well known commander Captain Whitney - and the latter is still commanded by Capt. Van Cleve, who is favorably known to the traveling community.

These boats are so well and favorably known to the public, that newspaper commendation is useless. They have both undergone a thorough repair, and commence the season in the very best order.

The new steamboat Oneida, built in this village during the last fall and winter, and owned by H.Fitzhugh, Esq., has made several excursions on the lake, and thus far, her engines work to admiration. She is a well built boat, and will be a great acquisition to the traveling facilities on our lake.

The Oswego is performing her trips as advertised, with promptness. She never was in better order.
