The Excursion. - In compliance with an Invitation from Mr. Jas. A. Baker, the children and teachers of the West Baptist Sunday School, and a large number of others invited, assembled aboard the fine clipper Minnehaha yesterday morning, for an excursion on the Lake to Little Sodus.
At the appointed hour, the new tug Wm. Morgan took the craft in tow and started out. As the two glided through the piers with flying colors, it was a most happy spectacle - the band discoursing a beautiful air amid the crowded deck of the schooner beaming with joyous faces. The excursion was heartily enjoyed by all, and the affair passed off without the least mishap.
The tug Ontario, Capt. Kimball, was also out on an excursion with a large party of ladies and gentlemen from the city, and spoke the Morgan and consort off Sodus Bay. In returning the two parties "fused" and the Oswego kindly "lent an oar," and the excursionists arrived back in good season.
On the whole it was an occasion of rare pleasure, and the children and all will hold the generosity of Messrs. Baker and Dobbie in grateful remembrance.
