Harrison Route Patronized
We have been pleased to see the increase of travel on this route, during the past two weeks, and hope that it may still continue to increase. As the harvest is about finished, let the Gen. Harrison be liberally patronized—she merits a full share of business in her line, for all on board of her, from Capt. to coal heavers, are gentlemanly, polite and attentive to the wants and comforts of the passengers. This boat runs from Grand Haven via. Kalamazoo and St. Joseph to Chicago, and returns by the same route, which is entirely a new one, and has never been run regularly before, by any boat or boats.
