p.2 Steamer Watertown - The hull of the burned steamer Watertown has been brought over to the city, and now lies in the slip at the foot of Earl street. The machinery is being got out in a somewhat damaged state, but in a far better condition than was generally expected. The boiler is perfectly good, so is the cylinder and the main portion of the engine. A part of the hull, being quite sound and untouched by fire, will be hauled out on the ways at the Marine Railway and built on. The machinery will be repaired at the Kingston foundry.

The Regatta - The disputed race of the second class yachts was run over yesterday afternoon. The yachts Humming Bird and Waterlily, between which the dispute originated, started at ten minutes after twelve, the cruise being from the Queen's wharf once round Simcoe Island and back, a distance of nearly twenty miles. The Humming Bird was declared the winner by four minutes and a half, allowing the Waterlily a minute and a half for tonnage.
