Description
Full Text

A GOOD BOAT. -- The steamer HERO, purchased from Montreal parties by Mr. C.F. Gildersleeve, arrived at 2 o'clock this morning. Nothing remarkable occurred on the trip up the river excepting a break to one of the buckets, which are of the feathering sort. The wheels are small in size. Her engine is an upright, constructed in 1878, and in pattern it is very similar to that of the PIERREPONT. The HERO has a good promenade deck, a commodious saloon and 12 comfortable staterooms, and is considered well adapted for either passenger traffic or excursion purposes. The boat at present is not so attractive for the very reason that neither much care nor money has been expended in preserving its original good looks by cleanliness. A number of men were this morning engaged in scrubbing her. At 4 o'clock she left upon her first trip up the Bay of Quinte. Capt. G. Crawford in command.
