Arrival of the Green Jacket from London
The Green Jacket, 1,088 tons, commanded by Captain Samuel Mitchell, made her number yesterday afternoon, and dropped anchor off the Queen-street Wharf, about three o'clock. She left Gravesend on the 14th August, and took her final departure on the 20th of the same month. No deaths during the passage. There were five births. No vessels were spoken during the voyage. The Green Jacket is a fine clipper vessel. She was built in 1860, by the celebrated shipbuilder King, of St. John's New Brunswick, and is owned by Messrs. Fernie and Brothers. She is a sister ship to the Queen of the Mersey, and her accommodation for passengers seems all that could be wished for. Testimonial to "Dr Sam." SC 15th Dec. 1863 pg3

by Mrs M. A. KIDDER-

When I see a brave ship
Speeding 'gainst the tide,
Well I know some little "tug"
Nestles by its aide.
With its hold tenacious,
. . That will never tire,
It imparts its power, fed
By a heart of fire.

Through the restless billows,
Past the anchored craft,
Past the scores of sailing ships,
Full rigged, fore and aft,
Goes this sailless vessel, Damaged, it may be,
And I know that at her dock
Safe she soon will be.

When I see a Weak man
Struggle with his might '
'Gainst the tempter's evil power,
Aiming to do right,
Seding through life's waters,
Daring wind and tide,
I'm quite cure a loving wife
Nestles at his side.

Then I pray such wives may
Always help as now,
True to him who strength may need
And the marriage vow ;
Lending him her council
In the time of care -
Hand to hand in sympathy,
Heart to heart in prayer.
