p.2 W.C. - 19.

-New Steam Yacht - We had the pleasure yesterday of viewing the steam yacht and tug Falcon, belonging to Mr. George Chaffey, Jr. of Portsmouth. She is the neatest little yacht we have ever seen about our harbor, being built under the supervision of Mr. Chaffey himself. While the main object in view was to use her as a tug, it is also the intention of the owner to hire her out for the accommodation of small excursion parties. For this latter purpose she is admirably adapted, and will fill a want long felt by pleasure seekers. She is nicely fitted up, and is capable of carrying from 30 to 40 passengers, making no less than 10 m.p.h. We welcome the Falcon to our waters.

p.3 Good Time - str. Rochester under new management.

-Marine Notes - arrivals and departures.
