Water Witch No. . ), having worn out her old boilers, they were replaced by the. "Dunilonnld" or "Montgomery" Patent Tubular boilers,
which, after a variety of alterations, proved failures, and were condemned hy a board of Engineo ^.

Witter Witch No. 4, has the old engines of No. 3, with Lamb and Summcrn e patent boilers and ft-uilii ring

Home squadron in 1852, Comd r G. | F. A. Parker.
J. Pendergrast. J
Home squadron and Brazil in 18.12, dipt. J. C. Long; carried
out the Brazilian Minister. Her frame is of live oak, and
her performance thus far is very creditable. Spreads l(j,50()
pqr. feet of canvass. Returned to Pensacola from Rio, Fell.
8, 1853, and on her passage round to Norfolk, struck on a
shoal off Savannah.
Sister vessel to the Susqueluinna. Left Norfolk for New York,
Sept. 15, 1852, and the latter for Havana, Oct. 1C, under
Capt. Wm. Mervine, as the flag ship of Commo. J. T. New
ton, returning to Norfolk on the 26 of Nov. following, willi
a cracked shaft, and failed again Feb. 13, 1853, under Capt.
W. J. McCluney, to join the Japan squadron.
Built on the same model as the Saraimc, with a different motive
power to test the relative merits of the side wheel, and pro
peller. On her trial trip from New York to Norfolk, in
January, 1852, encountered severe weather, which disabled
one of her engines. March 3d, sailed on her 1st cruise to
the Mediterranean, under Capt. T. Crabbe, and returned to
Philadelphia in July, 1853, requiring many repairs and alter
ations in her machinery.
Has her propeller fitted so as to unship and trice up by machi
nery, when not required; her topmasts are fitted abaft her
lower masts, and top gallant masts abaft the topmast. She
spreads 3833 yards of canvass, and has been employed prin
cipally as a Transport, on the Coast of California, under Lt.
S. Knox and others. Returned to Norfolk, under Lt. J. C.
Carter, March 15, 1853.
Built for a Tank and Tug boat. Employed as a Practice vessel
for the midshipmen at Annapolis in 1851, under Lt. T. T.
Craven. Subsequently sent to the West Indies under Lt. J.
W. Livingston, and has since. br.en lengthened and refitted
for the Japan expedition, under Lt. J. Rodgers.
The 1st. Propeller built for the U. S. Navy, under the auspices
of Captain R. F. Stockton, U. S. N., who subsequently
commanded her. See previous table of vessels no longer in
the service.
Performed remarkably well under steam or canvass, but pitched
heavily in a head sea.
Made a trial trip in Nov. 1852, under Comd r S. S. Lee, when
her boilers proved a failure, and, after undergoing several al
terations in Norfolk, has since made a trial trip to Port s,
under Comd r Eagle, with but little better success; after un
dergoing further alterations here, departed July 24, 1853, for
the fishing banks as the flagship of Commo. W. It. Shubrick.
Of the above steamers the Michigan, Water Witch, Nos. 1,
2, and 3, and the Alleghany are Iron, and all have low pres
sure engines. The original Union, Water Witch, and John
Hancock had non-condensing engines.

NOTES.

Alleghany No. 2. Old iron hull, with new machinery and boilers, the latter of Lamb it Summevs s patent, are now being modified, owing
to a failure of similar boilers on board of the Princeton. Pirsson s patent condenser is to be used.

Vixen. Like the Water Witch, has undergone frequent alterations and repairs, principally in machinery. The Montgomery boilers, that
were subsliiuted in place of the old ones by Engineer Haswell in 185U, failed, and Lumb & Summers s boilers now supply their
place. Makes poor headway under sail alone.

Susquehanna. Spreads 21,230 square feet of canvass, and under sail alone, with paddles removed, with a fair anil moderate wind, and a
draft of 18i feet, averaged 7.323 knots per hour, for 3 consecutive days. And with the same draft, under all sail, wind fair, a mod
erate sea, and with only steam enough to turn the wheels, averaged 8.234 knots for 20 consecutive days. During this time the aver
age pressure of steam was about 7 pounds, and consumption of Bituminous coal about 1!) tons per 24 hours.

San Jacinto. The original propeller, designed for this vessel by Engineer Haswell, was rejected by a board of engineers consisting of
Messrs. Williamson, Sewell, and Hunt, and one of less weight, (4 blades instead of G,) adopted. The engines were also reported
unfavorably of. Under sail alone has averaged 7 knots per hour for several days, dragging her propeller.

John Hancock. Cut in two, and lengthened 3H feet; using the old engines, with a new propeller weighing 3000 pounds, designed by Engineer
Isherwood, and boilers by Engineer D. Martin, with Pirsson s patent condenser.

Princeton 1st. Was built of white oak, ship rigged, and spread 14,413 square feet of canvass. Her 1st propeller weighed 12,000
pounds ; 2d do. 15,970 pounds, and with the latter she obtained about 12 per cent, increase of speed. Had a single Telescopic smoke
stack, that could be housed below the bulwarks.

Princeton 2d. Built of live oak, ship rigged; some of the old spars used, and new boilers have been fitted.

* Where she thumped heavily for several hours, and sustained some injuries that are now being repaired in the dry dock in Norfolk.
