p.2 Another Arrival From the Far West - The Schr. Governor, from Toledo, Ohio, arrived on Wednesday, and is now lying at Fairbanks and Allison's wharf. The distance is 3000 miles, and the voyage was accomplished in 30 days. This fore-and-aft which has crossed the Inland Seas, is 224 tons burthen, and 110 feet length of keel. She has on board 10,000 bushels of Corn and 1000 bushels of oats. This cargo, it is supposed by the consignees, to exchange for Mackerel. Thus freighted, the Governor will return up the St. Lawrence through the Welland Canal, avoiding the Niagara Falls - up the Erie, away across the inland sea, and hence to her destination in the Far West... "this young trade, though now but in the bud..." [Halifax Nova Scotian]
