p.2 The Kingston Bay Regatta - For several years past the Kingston Bay Regatta has really proved a scene of good sport, and consequently, we feel assured that the coming Regatta will not be one jot inferior to its predecessors. The Yachts owned in and about Kingston are very numerous, and their several owners have no little conceit in their sailing qualities. A sailing match is, therefore, the only mode of testing these qualities. We are sadly afrraid that the rowing matches will be complete failures, and the prizes mere gifts. The Barriefield Tailor is out of health, and, moreover, has no racing skiff; and as there is only one good four-oared boat extant, the prize (10 pounds) will, of course, be handed over to its owner. Thus, 22 pounds 10s. of the subscription will be positively thrown away.
