THE 7th of July was memorable as the date of sailing of two Arctic expeditions, one from St. John's, Newfoundland, the other from New York. The steamer Falcon, having set out from New York in June, and touched at St. John's,made its final departure from that point for Bowdoin Bay, Inglefield Gulf, Greenland, having on board the Peary auxiliary expedition, the intention being to convey Lieut. Peary and his twelve companions back to the United States in September, after their twelve months' sojourn in the Arctic regions. The Falcon was saluted in passing by the British man-of-war Cleopatra.
