The Daily Dispatch: October 8, 1862., [Electronic resource], Purchase of
Clyde steamers for running the Floored. (search)
Purchase of Clyde steamers for running the Floored. --The Glasgow Morning Journal states that the fine steamer , one of Mr. David Hutcheson's fleet of West Highland boats, which has been generally acknowledged as the Queen of the Clyde, made her last trip on her route from Glasgow to Ardridging, on Saturday last, having been purchased it is said Mr. Mason, the Southern who visited Glasgow lately, had something to do with this purchase. As it is, she will likely leave the Clyde after receiving some strengthening battle, in a short time hence. It is also said two or three others of our crack steamers, if not already sold, are likely soon to be purchased for the same purpose. Should they go to the South, they will likely form a line of steamers between some near frontal ports and one of the smaller Southern ports least likely to be affected by a blockade.--Wilmer a Smith's European Times.
