The pressures on, the news is hot,

The message comes, it doesn’t stop.

‘Cross bridge and ‘long the watercourse

The rider comes on airy horse.

Savage signals warn in beat

That soon the maker they will meet!

So Sooty Smith plies his trade.

See the cowboy mount!

It’s on its way!

Name the “town.”

Lexington, MA?

Paul Revere immediately comes to mind.

‘Cross bridge and ‘long the watercourse' means he had to cross the Charles River up in Boston, Mass and ride to Lexington to warn the colonists of the British invasion. 'Sooty smith' means he was a silversmith.

Shakee, I love your riddles! Keep 'em coming!

Ladies and Gents, please note the quotes around the last word. This is a tricky riddle and almost everything in it is a metaphor.

Good luck.

The pressures on, the news is hot, - news of the britsh coming would be 'hot' news

The message comes, it doesn’t stop. - the ride lasted until it terminated in lexington

Cross bridge and ‘long the watercourse - paul revere went across the river while his accomplice, dawes, took the land route that crossed a bridge

The rider comes on airy horse. - both dawes and paul revere rode horses

Savage signals warn in beat - they yelled the news of the british coming and the signal of the fire could be called 'savage' because fire can be quite savage

That soon the maker they will meet! - the minutemen would soon attack and kill the british

So Sooty Smith plies his trade. - paul revere was among other things a silver smith

See the cowboy mount! - he was a jack of all trades but idk about cowboy

It’s on its way! - the message was on the way

Name the “town.” - paul revere passed through charlestown on his way to lexington

You answer is incorrect, though well thought out and presented. Please read my previous post regarding metaphor. Thanks

For some reason I was thinking the messenger spacecraft. But I doubt that that's what the title is getting at...

The pressures on, the news is hot, --Venus is Hot and high pressure...mercury is very hot...

The message comes, it doesn’t stop. --Messenger is transmitting signals back to earth still

‘Cross bridge and ‘long the watercourse --Umm...space? orbit?

Savage signals warn in beat --The signal sent back to earth

Like I said, pretty sure it's wrong...Which if the rider or whatever is the messenger, then Mercury would be the "town" since that's its primary target...

Dr. Strangelove? The first image evoked is that a nuclear weapon. Especially with Slim Whitman(The cowboy) riding it. The "town" could be Megeddio. The ancient mountain where the final battle between good and evil is to take place and after which Armageddon is named.

No to all. Recommend a keyword analysis. This one is way out there, though the answer is mundane.

Actually I was thinking of naming it that.

No, it has nothing to do with cowboys, Indians, or horses.

No such thing as foolish guesses for tough riddles. But no, it has nothing to do with what you suggest.
