yesterday, arriving at Norfolk at 0
o'clock, P.31., from Atntnmessex. on

it connects with the railroad for Phila

l6hvin'g'NWt-folk inl the evening will
arrive at New York the next morning.
Tht(e 'ity of Norfolk is a New steat1er
and was built at Wilmington, Del. It
is. proposed, as soon ts the line gets
to workiug, to place onl the route an
other steatiner, so that passengers can
leave Norfolk both in the morning and
dveniig. The great benefit to the
traveling public afforded by this line
of steaniers cannot be overtated.
Twelve or fotfteen hours will be. saved
in traveling to New York from Nor
folk, and about ton dollars will be sa

of fare establishled by the Old BayI
Line of Steatmers, from Norfolk to
