Saugerties or Ulster, is situated on the west side of the river, one hundred and one miles from New York. Great advantage has been taken of a waterfall on the Esopus creek, which here enters the Hudson. It has made of Sauterties a large manufacturing town, with more than three hundred houses and two thousand inhabitants. The steamboats usually touch at Malden, or Bristol, a mile and a half north of the town.
