p.2 Shipping News - Garden Island - The arrivals since yesterday noon are: schr China, Wallaceburg, timber; schr. E.H. Rutherford, Wallaceburg, staves; schr Ontario, Toronto, staves; brig Sir C. Napier, Toledo, timber. None cleared.
The Regatta - There was fine weather for the regatta today, with a light westerly wind and a hot, moist and hazy atmosphere. The aquatic sports attracted many hundreds of spectators and pleasure-seekers, who patronized the steamers Watertown, Bay of Quinte and other boats, and thronged the wharves. Owing to the extreme length of course and the lightness of the wind the sailing races had not come to a termination up to the time of going to press. Our account to be complete must necessarily be deferred till our next issue. Late in the afternoon the rowing matches came off. The first four-oared race was handsomely won by the Toronto crew, who displayed a marked superiority of rowing over their competitors. The particulars of the boat races we are likewise compelled to postpone till tomorrow.
