The remainder sailed on board the paddle-steamer London, a vessel quite as unsuited for the purpose as the Melazzo.
She is somewhat of a semi-twin type, one-third wider than the ordinary sailing ship, but not so wide as a paddle-steamer.
Perhaps in a boat at the mouth of the Rion, listening for the mill-wheels of a paddle-steamer to grind the slow grit of distance.
All the power expended in the production of this great stream is, in the case of the paddle-steamer, entirely lost.
In the afternoon she missed a paddle-steamer which managed to save herself by beaching.
