p.2 Yachting - The promised sweepstakes match between the third-class boats came off yesterday, under very favorable circumstances. The wind was light at the hour of starting, but subsequently freshened into a breeze well adapted to the purposes of the race. We have not a list of the entries, but we recognized as engaged in the contest the Rover, Pearl, Breeze, Tecumseh, King Crispin, Golden Arrow, Eliza, and Petrel. It will be seen that several third class boats did not enter. - The Breeze led at the start, but was supplanted by the Rover, the latter steadily gaining on her adversaries, and ultimately coming in well ahead. The King Crispin made a second, followed closely by the Breeze, the remainder of the little fleet keeping well up. The day was throughout delightful, and the race excited a good deal of interest.
