John R. Fero, in connection with the proprietor of the new stm. FRANK C. FERO, named after the son of the former, gave a very pleasant excursion down the river yesterday to about 70 ladies and gentlemen. About an hour was delightfully spent at Oakfield, when the party re-embarked, leaving the dock at 28 minutes past 6, and arriving inside the harbor at 18 minutes before 8, making the run in 1 hour and 14 minutes. The boat is a perfect model and is 73 ft. in length; her engine is 10" by 12", built by Sutton & Brother; the boiler was built at Shepards Iron Works. She is owned by E. Osman, and sailed by Lyman Vedder, an old and experienced river pilot. It is intended the route between Black Rock Dam and Oakfield and will commence from the foot of Amherst St. It will easily accommodate 150 persons.
