She moored off the Battery on the southern tip of Manhattan in July 1847, and was received with great fanfare. The Chinese crew of Keying were understandably angry as they had signed on only for an eight-month voyage to Singapore and Batavia (now Jakarta).
Keying stayed several months in New York. Keying next sailed to Britain.
A storm on 28 February wrecked her two boats, ripped the foresail, and disabled the hardwood ironbound rudder, which was hung in the Chinese manner without gudgeons or pintles. During the repair of the rudder the second mate drowned. It was moored at the Rock Ferry slipway for public exhibition.  On 29 September 1853, Keying was preparing to leave for foreign ports in three weeks. But instead it was dismantled "for research" at the shipyard of Redhead, Harling, and Brown.
