Description
Full Text

The new propeller barge, the B.W. JENNESS, which was launched some time ago from the yard of J.M. Jones, of this city, and which is named after and partly owned by Mr. Jenness, of Cleveland, formerly U.S. Senator from New Hampshire, yesterday came out for a trial trip on the river, previous to going into the lumber carrying trade, for which she is designed. The craft is a splendid one from keelson to truck, and is furnished with cabins and
state-rooms, we should judge more extensively than is usual with this new class of vessels. These vessels have schooner built hull, rising rather more from the water-line, however, and are propelled by a screw, having also a mast forward carrying a heavy fore and aft rigged sail, and are peculiarly adapted to the lumber trade.
