Toronto Regatta - Yesterday, the lovers of aquatic sports held their Regatta on the Bay, as previously arranged. The day was exceedingly fine - but far too warm and calm for those who joined in the competition. The water on the bay was as smooth as glass. There was a numerous party of spectators on board the City of Toronto, and altogether the amusements were as entertaining as could have been expected under the circumstances. We have not obtained a list of the prizes awarded. [British Colonist, Sept 17th]
