The O.S. Howard

We had the pleasure, in company with quite a large party of ladies and gentlemen of this city, of a ride up the lake on Thursday evening, on the little steamer O.S. Howard. The evening was one of rare beauty, and the ride one of the pleasantest "on record." We left the wharf about half past eight, and returned about twelve o'clock, making a trip of about 45 miles. On her return the little steamer made the distance from Little Sodus Bay to this city, 13 miles, in one hour, and under a head of only 40 pound of steam, showing a very good ability for running. Her machinery works admirably well, and she runs very handsomely. Stone's Band was on board and contributed very handsomely to the entertainment. All on board enjoyed themselves exceedingly well and express themselves determined not to be satisfied with this one trip. We have no doubt the Howard will be engaged often during our pleasant evenings, in similar excursions.
