***************

Mary Lawrence, [Wed.] June 13 [1860]: “Had a fine breeze through the night until about 4 A.M., when just as we made Montauk it died away calm. About 9 A.M. the pilot came on board, By that time we had given up all hopes of getting in today. This day drags very heavily. At 1 P.M. a slight breeze sprang up. Passed the schooner B.C. Babcock, of Egg Harbor. Saw a propeller and ships and small crafts too numerous to mention. The pilot could give us but very little news. Had a [news] paper on board and did not even know who were the candidates for the [U.S.] presidency. “
