p.2 Steamboat Racing - By a card in the Ogdensburgh Daily News we see that the steamers Jenny Lind and Arabian had a race a few days since between Lachine and the entrance to the Beauharnois Canal. The Jenny Lind came off the victor.

Steamboats - The Prince of Wales has been disabled by the breaking of her crosshead. The new steamer Bay of Quinte goes upon the bay some time this week - perhaps today or tomorrow. The Ottawa has resumed her place in the River Mail Line, and the New Era, which had been taken off to supply the vacancy occasioned by the accident to the Ottawa, is again on the Through Line.
