The schr. White Oak cleared, light, for Oswego last evening.
The str. St. Lawrence carried a select party about the harbour last evening. They were friends of Miss Laura Folger and numbered about 200. The sail which lasted four hours was thoroughly enjoyed.
The tug Sea King reached here last evening from St. Johns, N.B., and took in a quantity of coal at Swift's wharf. She will be used in the lumber business on the St. Clair. Capt. Bolderich took command of her here.
A very exciting steamboat race occurred in the river yesterday afternoon. The new str. John Haggart left Kingston with a private party for Gananoque, fifteen minutes ahead of the steamer Princess Louise. At the foot of Howe Island the Louise collared the Hoggart, and for nearly an hour they ran side by side. Finally the Princess Louise let out, moved ahead, and got to Gananoque first by fifteen minutes.
