32 Steamers, of 90 guns and upwards.
32 ,, 50 to 90 guns.

There are, besides, 186 steam gun-boats, with engines varying from 20 to 60 horse-power; and 40 steam-vessels consisting of tenders, store-ships, and tugs.

The 'Renown' is our best screw-steamer, and should be the model of those to be hereafter constructed. At present we have few like her.
