That Supper. - The re-union given at Mooney's on Monday evening, after the launch of the new tug, was a very pleasant affair. Geo. Talcott, the builder of the engines and boiler, and Ald. Rogers, the builder of the tug, and Capt. Wright, the owner, made brief and appropriate speeches, and numerous sentiments, appropriate to the occasion, were offered.

The supper was excellent, and the numerous company was highly pleased with the affair. The new tug is emphatically an Oswego institution, being built entirely in this city, and by our own mechanics - and she is beautiful, staunch and powerful, and will rival the best tugs on the chain of Lakes. We offer the following sentiment for the occasion:

The Tug "H. Perry Jr." - A name memorable of the Lakes, and successful everywhere - its fame will not pale in the achievements of the new craft that bears it.

Music - Yankee Doodle.
