The Cobourg Regatta came off on the 7th and 8th inst., and, in spite of some slight mishaps, appears to have afforded general satisfaction. On the first day, the Louise got foul of the Wave immediately after starting, carrying away a large portion of the mainsail of the latter, and throwing her on the beam ends, by which two of the crew were precipitated into the water. Subsequently, the Breeze started a plank, and instantly filled; but the crew were saved by the Louisa. On the second day, the Rough and Ready carried away her mast by the board - the only accident that appears to have occurred during the day. The three races for which prizes were awarded, were won respectively by the Lark, the Little Briton, and the Ocean Wave.
