Struck A Rock - It is reported that the prop. City of St. Catharines, while on her way up Lachine Lake last night, struck a rock and sank. The water is up to the main deck aft, and is five feet in her hold forward. This was her first trip down the river - the first trip of the season - after lying idle over two years. She took from here to Montreal the cargo of flour which the propeller Persia had at the time of her collision with the bark Bismarck.

Open Warfare - The controversy over the tonnage and ballast question has given rise not merely to heated discussion but to open though bloodless warfare. The Mail gives publicity to correspondence, much of which is light and frivolous, and some quite rude in its reference to the Kingston yachtsmen, who have modest opinions and good boats, which is more than the western men can say, pretentious as they seem.

Toronto Regatta - list of races for Sept. 6th.
