p.2 The Race - The race between the Sans Souci and the Jessie was a closely contested affair, but was won by the former. It is not improbably that there will be another contest between these two boats.
Accidents on the River - Several accidents, we regret to state, have recently occurred to steamers employed in the transit trade of the river: The steamer City of Kingston struck in the Lachine Rapids, and has become a total wreck. The Dawn and the Comet have both been aground again - the 1st near Gananoque and the latter at the mouth of the Beauharnois canal. These steamers are not "pollywags" as that term is by a few persons applied.
