p.2 Steamers - The Ocean Wave, a new steamer of the largest class, has just been put upon the route between Hamilton and Montreal.

The Bay is apparently about to be as well supplied with good passenger boats as it has hitherto been deficient in that respect. We have already mentioned that it is in contemplation by the owners of the Bay of Quinte to build another boat for this route; besides this, however, we learn that Mr. Sweetman has succeeded in getting nearly the whole stock subscribed for the steamer proposed at the Picton meeting; further, we have heard within a day or two that it is proposed by fully competent parties to build two steamers for the same purpose!

Sailing Match - A sailing match came off on Saturday last, in Toronto Bay. The proprietor of the Peninsula Hotel put up a purse, open to all boats, with tonnage allowance. The Jenny Lind, formerly of this city, carried off the prize.
