p.2 Toronto Yacht Club - We have been requested to state for the information of those members of the Royal Yacht Club, who were absent from the general meeting of the Club on the 5th inst., when the election of officers for the present year took place, that the result of the ballot was as follows:

Commodore Major Magrath.

Vice-Commodore J. Ettrick, Esq.

Captain J. Hamilton, Esq.

Secretary W. Campbell, Esq.

This club has made steady and rapid strides. In the year 1852 it first sprung into existence, its members then being few, and the number of yachts registered 9 or 10. It is now protected by the Royal Charter, has enrolled about one hundred members, and in the summer season enlivens our beautiful bay with some 22 yachts. From these facts it would appear that the manly and invigorating sport of yachting is appreciated quite as fully in Canada as in the mother country. We wish the Club every success. [Colonist]
