To the Editor of the British Whig.

My Dear Whig,-

Madam rumor saith that the Captains of the American steamers plying between this and Lachine, have volunteered to take the Long Islanders down, "free gratis for nothing," that they may have a chance to compete for the prizes at the forthcoming Montreal Regatta. Surely the Captains of our own steamers on the above route, will not be behind hand in doing 'the amiable'; as it is understood that certain of the Champions of former years and other lovers of nautical sports, are going down purposely to have a pull for fame and de monish.

Yours, SCULLS.

Kingston, Oct. 7th, 1850.
