Sailing of the Steamship Falcon – The splendid steamship Falcon, Capt. Thompson, though only three days had elapsed since her arrival, was again ready to depart yesterday afternoon, but owing to some slight alterations which were making (made) in her machinery, she did not get off until about ten o’clock in the evening; consequently the crowd that had collected to witness her departure went away about dark without being gratified. It will be seen by the annexed list that she takes out a large number of passengers, considering the time she has been in port:--
