p.2 Schooner Aground - The schooner Anne Jane Brown, laden with staves, is aground on the Snake Island bar, about 3 or 4 miles distant from the harbour. An ineffectual attempt was made yesterday to relieve her from her perilous position. The surf rolled heavily on the bar yesterday and this morning, in consequence of a pretty fresh blow from the south.

Regatta - Correction: In the report of the result of the fourth class race, we should have stated that the Devil-may-care saved her entrance, not the Dread. The Dread came in third.

A private match, growing out of the late Regatta, will come off tomorrow, between the Sans Souci and the Surge. The run will, we believe, be around Simcoe Island.
