p.2 The Regatta Tomorrow - There is evidently little excitement out of the city in regard to the Regatta to come off in the harbor tomorrow. It was expected that the fast yacht Gorilla from Cobourg would be here, but the only yacht coming in addition to those owned in the city, is the Ripple from Brockville. The sailing matches will come off first, the first class yachts starting from the Queen's wharf at about half-past ten, and the second class in about half an hour afterwards. The course can be ascertained by referring to the advertisement. So far there have been about four entries in the first and six in the second class. The entries for the rowing matches will not close until this evening so that the number will not be known until tomorrow.

The steamer Bay of Quinte, with the stewards on board, will accompany the yachts round the harbor, leaving the St. Lawrence wharf at 12:30 and at 2 p.m. By permission of the Lieut.-Col. Moffatt and officers of the Royal Canadian Rifles, the band of the regiment will attend on board.

-Mr. L.W. Jeffers has purchased and brought into our harbor the handsome and effective tug Robert Reed, which he intends to keep in constant readiness for service at towing vessels into and out of harbor and moving stranded vessels. Mr. Jeffers' enterprize will, it is to be hoped, be amply rewarded. The tug will be in attendence on the regatta tomorrow.

-The Ferry steamer Gazelle is on her route today between the city and Wolfe Island as usual.
