Three Times a Week.
From Catskill through New Durham, Middleburgh, Schoharie, &c. to Spraker's Basin on the Erie Canal, 65 miles.
This Line of Stages will leave Catskill every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning immediately after the arrival of the steamboats from New York, and will arrive at Spraker's Basin on the Erie Canal, on the evening of the same days. Leave Spraker's Basin every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning at 7 o'clock, and will arrive at Catskill on the evening of the same days, in time to take the 7 o'clock steam boat for New York.
This Line of Stages will pass through the following places, viz: Corrystown, Charleston, Sloane's Village, Schoharie Court House, Middleburgh, Livingstonville, Preston Hollow, Oak Hill, New Durham, and the Village of Cairo, &c.
Apply for seats at Catskill at M. Croswell's Hotel, and at Spraker's Basin at George Spraker's Hotel.
The proprietors of this Line have contracted for carrying the United States Mail four years, on the above days through the above roue; they have provided themselves with new carriages, good horses, and every necessary accommodation to give permanency to the Line, and afford a safe and expeditious conveyance for passengers. All baggage at the risk of the owner.
N.B. This is on the contemplated route for the Canajoharie and Catskill RailRoad. JOSEPH I. BORST,
The proprietors flatter themselves, that although their immediate object in the establishment of the above Line may be their private interest, they are nevertheless confident they are affording advantages to the traveling part of the community, which to be properly appreciated need only be pointed out. After the opening of the river and canal navigation, as well as at all other times, the traveller from Catskill may take his seat in this Line and arrive at Spraker's Basin in convenient time for taking the Evening Packet or stage, and arrive early the next morning at Utica. This line will be so managed as to meet the Steam Boats, the General Packets, the Stages on the Mohawk Turnpike, the Great Western Turnpike, and other Stages passing through Schoharie and Greene counties in every direction. The saving of time and distance to the traveller, by taking this Line, are too obvious to require examination.
