p.2 Regatta - The Regatta came off on Saturday, and was witnessed by a large number of spectators assembled on the principal wharves. The following yachts started at one o'clock, the course being about twenty miles:- 1st class - John A. Macdonald, Gorilla, and Belle; 2nd class - Wide-awake, Osprey, and Garibaldi, the Wide-awake being slightly ahead of the Garibaldi. This was the principal race and excited a good deal of interest. The Gorilla came in first, closely followed by the Wide-awake. The Osprey lost her mast near the first buoy, and after drifting about two hours was towed in by the Bay of Quinte. Owing to a press of matter full particulars of the different races are deferred.
