On Thursday tho Western came out oftho
East river, and the trial took place, from the
Battery to the sea, in which we gained a most
glorious triumph in the presence of many thou
sands of our fellow-citiiens, assembled to wit
ness the useful and exciting contest. The
following account which was made at the time
by two gentleman who camo on board for that
pnrpoae, I prefer to send you rather than
trust my own pen on the subject. You will
allow me, however, to add that tho Princeton
is now admitted to be the fastest and most beau
tiful, as she will hereafter be admitted to be
tho mofct formidable ship afloat:
At 33 minutes past 2 o'clock, P. M., whilst
the Princeton was lying in the North river, the
Great Western was seen passing the Battery,
under a full head of steam, blowing off strong,
and with her fore and aft sails set, the wind
blowing fresh from the westward. The Prince
ton immediately started her engine, gave chase
and coining up astern of the Great Western
soon passed with no sails set, and the yards
f(,uare. The Western then set her square
sails, and the Princeton following her example,
uiadisail n!so,on.l continued to widen the gap
between the two vessels.
I W hen tho Princeton had arrived at the
Buoy of the middle below tho Narrows, she
! was more than a mile ahead of the Great Wes
tern. Here the latter ship, to make good the
distiMiccsho had lost, took tho "Swash Chan
nel," which is three miles shorter than the or
ful appearance. Tho mnehinery is said to be
of the roost perfect character, in design as well
m in finish. Tho ship, the machinery, and

In years by-gono, when Rockawny was the

Saratoga and Ballston had superseded it, tho
Half-way Houfo, at Jamaica, used to bo filled
with travellers on their excursions, who gener

In about half on hour, however, he camobncl:
and said he believed he 'must put up with it.

by some means reached that gentleman's ear.,
who had determined, being a stout man, upon
the course of his conduct towards his civil visi
