organization of this city, went on their annual excursion to day
to Iona Island, on the Hudson. There was a large representation
of Brooklynites and the occasion was a very delightful one.
The steamer Thomas Powell and a con modicus barge were chartered to
convey the party and left Jewell's Dock shortly after nine o'clock.
A little later a landing was made at Leroy street, North River, and
an opportunity was thus afforded to the numerous friends of the
