The Hand tug line, of this city, have already made arrangements to provide first class facilities for excurion parties at a very moderate cost. They have purchased the canal
boat C.W. WOLFE, which is being transformed, at Mr. Notter's yard, into a pleasure boat, with all the conveniences for the commodations of parties. The boat is a laker of the staunchest class. A strong deck will extend over the entire length of the boat, in the style of an awning, so that excursionists might find shelter from a storm or the hot sun.
      The WOLFE will always be used as a tow barge, and let in company with a tug. The demand will doubtless be mostly for trips down the river, and in case of a t heavy sea outside, the size of the craft will permit of being towed up the canal from Lower Black Rock. When the boat is ready for service, which will probably be next Tuesday, at the latest, the proprietors will give an excursion to institute the craft in its new business, and to give some of our citizens an opportunity of enjoying a free ride. We have no doubt the WOLFE will be popular, as it will be fitted up in good style, and will always be under the careful management of O.W. CHeney, superintendent, J.W. Jones, No. 2 Main St., is general agent.
