Yesterday the steamers Hero and Quinte had a lively race to Cape Vincent. The Hero was from Belleville, the Quinte from Napanee. The Quinte left Glenora thirty-five minutes ahead of the Hero, and though the Hero made three more stops than the Quinte before the foot of Amherst Island was reached the Quinte only reached Cape Vincent 4 1/2 minutes ahead of the Hero. Passengers say that if the steamers had started together and made the same number of stops, the Hero would have beaten the Quinte by over 40 minutes.
