p.2 NAVAL STEAMERS - A short time since we visited the Cherokee Naval Steamer, at the Kingston Dock Yard, Mr. Tucker, under whose direction she has been principally constructed, was good enough to accompany us, which gave us an opportunity of minutely examining all her fittings up, and internal arrangements, which for the accommodation of her officers and crew, and the purposes for which she was built, as a war Steamer, cannot be surpassed; everything about her is most substantial, with no useless expenditure in ornament. Her machinery, which has been obtained from England, is of the best kind and most improved construction, her Engines being all below decks, and what are called bell cranked.

We witnessed part of the experimental trip, both of the Cherokee, and her Consort the Mohawk, which has been lengthened, and it was impossible to imagine a finer model, or more beautiful outline than the Cherokee, and we have no doubt she will prove a lasting testimony to the science and skill of her constructor.
