Vessel Pumps

We this morning witnessed the working of one of Hammon & Co., vessel pumps two of which have been constructed for Smyth and De Wolf vessel. A large number of captains were present to see the trial and they expressed perfect satisfaction with the operation of the pumps.

The one used this morning was one of the largest size, throwing a four inch stream The superiority claimed for these pumps consists in their simplicity of construction, durability, efficiency, and the ease with which they are operated. They will neither get out of repair, nor clog with any kind of gain, and they are nearly as easy to work as some cistern pumps we have seen A constant stream can be thrown with a very slight sweep of handle, and done man can work the pump easily.

Ship owner's and others are recommended to inspect these pumps before purchasing elsewhere.
