Full Text

Mr. Charles F. Bingham's handson little stm. yacht GENESEE is already noted on the Niagara River, for speed, though she has only been in commission a few weeks. She is comfortably fitted up, and is in charge of that experienced navigator of Niagara, Capt. "Hank" Curtiss, who also has the LOKE CLARK, as in former years. We understand the owner of the GENESEE, when not using the craft himself, occasionally rents her to small and select pleasure parties, who generally go down the west channel, stopping at Black Creek, Willow Bay or Sheenwater, and then perhaps cruise as far as Navy Island and come up on the American side, calling at Niagara View, Sour Spring Grove and the Bedell House. This seem to be the favorite tour of the river and affords the best opportunity for fishing, if there is any to be had.
