American steamer in Chinese waters.

The fastest steamer in Chinese waters is the Yang-Teze, built at New York. She clears thousands of dollars every trip between Hong Kong and Shanghai, merely by carrying news ahead of the mail steamer, which she always beats by twenty-four hours. The Willamette and Flying Cloud, both built in the United States, are the fastest boats on the Canton river, and have completely run the English steamers off the track. All these vessels carry the "Stars and Stripes,"
