p.2 The tide of emigration from the eastern to the western states appears to roll through the Welland Canal with increasing volume. Besides the propellers regularly running, we noticed on Saturday afternoon a splendid new brig passing upwards, her deck covered with passengers, the Hampton Oswego, on her first trip. She appeared to be of exactly the right size for the locks. On the day following a schooner belonging to Buffalo went up with a similar cargo, and a fine large brig, the Wabash of Sackets, stopped below the town over-night, crowded with emigrants. [St. Catharines Journal]

p.3 The Brig Ocean is about to take her departure from Detroit, via the Welland Canal and the St. Lawrence River, for the West Indies. So says the Detroit Advertiser.
