BRIG AMAZON. - The Niagara River Pilot, says this fine vessel came into port on Sunday last, with her best "bib and tucker," and looks as much like a belle of the first water as any craft which sails the lakes. She has been upon the stocks for the past two months undergoing repairs and comes from the workmen's hands a very thing of beauty.
We congratulate Captain Kenan upon the fine appearance of his vessel, and her admirable sailing qualities. She has been supplied with a centre board and all the requisites of a fast sailer, and is so new and handsome withal, that were her name not visible, her most intimate friends would not recognise her. The AMAZON was one of the two first vessels that first brought freight to our harbor and has ever since been as true to the interests of Tonawanda as is the needle to the pole.
Her enterprising owner, Mr. M.B. Scott, is well known to our citizens as one who lets no opportunity slip whereby he may advance the interests of our growing village. Success to the AMAZON, her owner and her master.
