Full Text

The Journal of last week announces the formation of a company to build and run a Steam Boat between Buffalo and Chippawa--one half of the Directors, the names of the whole of whom are mentioned, to belong to each of these two places.

We are pleased to discover this bold exhibition of enterprise in our Buffalo neighbors. It shows at least that they are recovering their senses, and begin to find that in order to sustain a successful competion [sic] with Black Rock, it will be necessary to follow our example, and work a little for the advancement of their village, instead of spending their time and wasting their strength in incessant brawls and petitions for help from our legislative Hercules.

But Query? what will be the national character of this new steam boat, and how will her papers run? will she be British when at Chippewa, and American when at Buffalo? or will she be in the law language of both countries, filia nullius.
