Having heard much said in commendation of the stm. GEN. WAYNE, repaired and in all things improved, as she has recently been under the command of her gentlemanly Capt. A.D. Perkins, we stepped on board the other day and found, as it appeared to us, she deserves much more than had been said in her favor. her staterooms in the gentlemen's cabin are large, neat and comfortable, with two doors opening inside and out, having in this respect undergone an entire change while the new arrangement for the accommodation of steerage passengers, are equally happy, convienent and desirable. In fact, taste and comfort are displayed in all parts of the boat as now completed. The two saloons, the washroom and the kitchen, have not escaped nor been neglected, while the style and finish displayed in painting does great credit to Mr. Monroe of this city, who was engaged for the task. We bespeak therefore for the WAYNE the attention and patronage of the public, feeling confident as we do, that she will be found by both cabin and steerage passengers, a desirable, neat and comfortable travelling residence.
In short, the GEN. WAYNE is now pronounced, by competent judges, worth as much, with her recent improvements, as when new. -- Monroe Adv.
