      We examined a few days since the lamps to be put on the stm. MAYFLOWER, manufactured by Gooding & Garit of Boston. It is a new firm of enterprising younf men and this first specimen of workmanship is highly creditable to their mechanical genius and good taste. There are 7 large chandaliers or hanging lamps, with three lights each, of an entire pattern, tastefully hung with beautiful cut glass in great profusion. The chain by which they are suspended is something new and original, representing a twisted grape vine loaded with fruit. The design of the little fixtures about the lamps is exceedingly neat and tasteful. These are for the main and upperdeck, and is bracket lamps

The satairway lamps are of the new style of magnificent stained glass of all colors, and also the lamps used in the machinery room, When they are all ignited, the rooms will present and excellent appearance, resembling more a Broadway drawing room than a steamers Saloon. There is nothing like having plenty of light on any supper.
