      One of the oldest vessels on the inland seas is the schooner Governor, Capt. Alf Fitzgeralds. She was built at Kingston in the year 1846, and since that time has been in commission. she has never been rebuilt, and today has the same decks and top sides she came out with. her floor timbers are sound, and her plan, below the water mark, are as well preserved as any vessel afloat. Like Mark Twain's captain, her bilge water becomes impure occasionally and has to be sweetened.
