p.2 The Regatta - The sailboat Canadian Life, built and owned by Mr. Jamieson, a very ingenious mechanic employed by the Water Works Company of this city, met with an accident on Monday, the day of the Regatta. She had got nearly opposite the Water Works wharf, and was coming in handsomely ahead of her opponents, when her bowsprit broke, the effect of which was to lessen her speed by nearly seven minutes, as she came in (still keeping the lead) in a disabled state, and nearly under bare poles. All things considered, the Canadian Life made a very handsome run, and proved herself a good fast sailor.

Police Court - 3 sailors fined $2 each for being drunk.

p.3 Portsmouth Marine Railway - The Subscriber having purchased the above Railway, would beg leave to inform the owners and masters of vessels that the Portsmouth Marine Railway is now in complete working order, and that he is prepared to haul out and repair all classes of vessels at least 20 per cent less than any other establishment in the province. He would also say that this railway is situated on one of the best harbors on Lake Ontario, and from the facilities at his command, he will guarantee all work that he may be favored with to be done in a satisfactory manner, as none but first class workmen are employed.

Portsmouth, Kingston, July 1st, 1867 Peter Mitchell, Proprietor.
