Full Text

The tug REINDEER, Capt. Keeler, passed down Sunday with 8 loaded vessels in tow, which is conceded now to be the largest ever made, and entitling him to the belt given the tug MARTIN a few days since, which passed with 7, as reported at the time. Yesterday afternoon Capt. Keeler was formally presented with the belt by Capt. Seth Hunter, who honored the occasion with a few brief remarks, to which Capt. Keeler very feelingly replied. It was at once placed at the head of the flag staff, by the side of an elegant broom.
