New Steam Yacht - Yesterday a new steam yacht, built by Mr. Robinson (the builders of the yachts Laura & Emma) consigned to the water a small and handsome steam launch, ordered by Prof. Dupuis for pleasure purposes. The boat measures 30' in length, is 5' 6" in breadth, and is 2' 6" in depth. She was commenced about the 1st of June, so that her builder has made good speed in having her nearly ready for service in so short a time. Her engine (three horse power) and boiler were made at Brokenshire & Co's foundry, and both are excellent pieces of workmanship. She is expected to be quite speedy, and in all respects will give satisfaction. The little craft is such as any gentleman should feel pleased to own and sail.
