THE NEW STEAMSHIP YANKEE BLADE

Passing along Jackson street wharf yesterday, the beautiful proportions of the new steamship Yankee Blade, of the independent opposition line of steamers, attracted' my attention, and on going aboard, I gleaned the following particulars in regard to her, which I doubt not will prove interesting to your readers, and the traveling community throughout the State. She was built by Messrs. Perrine and Stack, of Williamsburgh, New York, and is a perfect model of Naval Architecture.

Trial of Avery, etc., San Francisco, May 29

In the trial of Avery for the murder of Susanna Russell on board the steamship Yankee Blade, the counsel on both sides submitted their case without argument. The Judge briefly charged the jury; retired at half-past three o'clock, and came in at half-past seven, unable to agree upon a verdict. They stood eight for acquittal and three for conviction. . .
