p.2 The Regatta, we regret to say, was a failure. Our good citizens seem to be too much engaged "making hay while the sun shines" to pay attention to sportive recreations. Our neighbours of Long Island bore off the palm in two or three of the contests, ousting those of Brockville of their anticipated victory, of which, by the way, we think the Statesman was rather premature in crowing. A sail-boat was also present from Picton. These instances of enterprize prove that a better spirit exists at a distance than where so much exertion has been made to "get up" a Regatta. Unless taken into better hands, we fear Regattas in Kingston will shortly be at a discount. [The News, Aug. 5th]
