p.3 Accidents - The yacht Oldrieve (of Kingston) struck an obstruction yesterday and carried away part of her rudder. The Ailsa Craig ran into the Grand Junction wharf and broke her topmast, which snapped with a report like a pistol. [Belleville Intelligencer]

Congratulations - The Belleville Intelligencer says: "We congratulate Mr. Geo. Offord of Kingston, on having at last won a prize in a regatta here. Year after year Mr. Offord has brought his yachts here to race, and almost always without success, until yesterday. Mr. Offord is one of the most plucky of yachtsmen, and had the Emma taken first place yesterday there is no one in town who would not have rejoiced at it, as her owner has won golden opinions here by his manliness and perseverance under great discouragement. We trust that Mr. Offord will yet own a yacht that will win many prizes for him on the Belleville course."
