DELAPLAINE
New York, Nov. 8
The unfortunate oversetting of the Powles Hook Ferry Boat on Monday last, by which an estimable citizen, Mr. Delaplaine lost his life, has greatly increased the fears which individuals have ever felt on crossing this ferry. Happily for the inhabitants of this city, for the people of Jersey, and all travelers who are necessitated to pass by this route; the corporation are about concluding a contract with Mr. Fulton to establish steam ferry boats for this passage, the size of
which boats, the certainty of their ever maintaining an even keel, the impossibility of their oversetting or sinking, together with the facility of entering and landing from them, with horses and carriages, will give a confidence and convenience little inferior to that of a bridge.
