p.2 It gives us much pleasure to insert the following extract of a Letter from an American traveller dated Oswego July 3rd:

"The new arrangement of the line of the Great Britain's trips begins to be felt as a great addition to the conveniences and advantages of the Lake Navigation; and must eventually be the spring of profit as well as ease and pleasure. As the praises of this splendid Vessel are said, if not sung, from shore to shore, I need scarcely add that no one can enjoy her rapid and enlivening voyages, and the perfect commodiousness of her internal policy, without feeling pride and satisfaction in the Queen of the Lake. By the addition of an excellent performer on the Highland pipes, travellers will derive no small delight from the spirit stirring strains of the national music of Scotland; and its wild and entient ? associations form, as the French say, a fine rapproachment with these new scenes and the march of improvement."
