THREE hundred years ago, Hendrick Hudson, an adventurous Dutch sailor, in a ,
little ship called the "Half Moon," sailed up what is now the harbor of New
York, and up the great river which now bears his name.
Two hundred years later, a hundred years ago, Robert Fulton, amid the jeers and ridicule of his fellow
townsmen, who said he was a crank, and couldn't possibly do it, made a voyage up the same historic river,
from |New York) to Albany, in the "Clermont," the first vessel ever propelled by steam.
[ And now the country is celebrating these two historic events in a great pageant; the two clumsy little ves?
sels, reproduced in exact size and appearance are to be saluted by a great fleet of warships, assembled from all
the big navies of the world; and civic and military parades and commemorative exercises are to be held in *
honor of these two historic events in the progress of civilization.
