p.2 The Regatta - This is the day for the Kingston Bay Regatta. Arrangements have been made for the comfort and convenience of spectators. The steamer Magnet will be out in the Bay nearly all day, and subscribers, on application to the Secretary, receive Tickets for selves and families. Signal Guns will be fired for sailing. If the weather be propitious, and it bids fair to prove so, the day will be one of great sport.

Welland Canal - In the seven days ending on Tuesday, 106 vessels passed through this canal. Among the vessels in and around Shickeluna's Dock, we noticed the other day the hull of the steamer Commerce - some months since run down near the mouth of the Grand River, by the steamer Despatch. It had been lying in Lake Erie, about three miles from shore, in 49 feet water, and was raised to the surface and brought down the canal by Mr. S. At the time of our seeing it, the cargo, consisting of potash kettles and iron, was being taken out. [St. Catharines Journal]
