The large and commodious side-wheel propeller- Defeat- having lately been thoroughly overhauled, refitted, and painted by the enterprising owners, Messrs. Popular Sentiment and Small Majority, at a great expense, propose making an extended tour through the unexplored regions of Disappointed Ambition, Deferred Hopes, Blasted Prospects, Unpleasant Recollections and Distressing Forbodings, and will touch at some of the most noted watering places which lie on the beautiful and picturesque shores of the enchanting "Salt River." Some of the points at which the vessel will land for refreshments and an hour or so of calm and quiet rest under the multifarious boughs of the tall trees, are, Point Sorrow, Cape Desertion, Mount Affliction, Stony Pillow, Bank Busted and Empty Pocket. Upon her return trip-which may be in one to ten years- she will touch at the beautiful groups of Isles called, Isles of Despair. Owing to the weather, and the circumstances of the case, it has been decided that the vessel will leave port on the evening of Saturday, April 2d, 1870. All wishing to make the tour as proposed, will be on board by 6 o'clock, P.M. of that day, as the Captain- Mr. Ballot-box- has issued imperative orders that the boat shall go at that hour. A change of linen is not required, as all the passengers will fins a good and full supply on board the vessel.

Voice of the People, Clerk.

Candidate Elect, Stewart
