p.2 The American Propeller Haze - The American propeller Haze, the commander of which, Commodore Harwood, refused as a matter of naval etiquette, to salute H.M. ship Aurora at Quebec, and H.M. ship Wolverine at Montreal, has been permitted to pass through the canals and arrived here on Saturday night. She remained here until this morning, when she left for Detroit, professedly on a lighthouse inspection tour. The Haze is a solidly built vessel of 218 tons burden, and has port holes intended for the use of the larger sized howitzers. The Commodore employed himself yesterday in sketching the city and its surroundings, and also in coloring the same; he being evidently in want of a pretty picture to show his friends on his return home. The propeller is said to have been sold, and not now to be a government vessel, although her commander is Naval Secretary to the United States Lighthouse Board. The Haze lay at the wharf during a great part of her stay, and was visited by a great many persons yesterday.
