A Pleasant Supper. - The employees of Goble's ship-yard, with a number of invited guests, last evening sat down to a most capital supper served up in Doolittle Hall, by Ashley of the Oswego Hotel. The attendance was very large, the fare excellent, and the company decidedly jolly.
The supper was given jointly by Mr. Goble, Lyons & Finney, and T.S. Mott, in commemoration of the launching from the ship-yard of the former gentleman of the Montauk and Bahama. These are A No. 1 vessels and are a credit to Oswego shipbuilding. The Montauk is owned by George Goble, and Lyons & Finney. She will be commanded by Capt. Robert Nicholson. The Bahama is owned by T.S. Mott. She will be sailed by Capt. Daniel Becker.
The supper was a decidedly pleasant affair. Stories were told, a number of capital songs were sung, and everybody present enjoyed themselves hugely.
