p.2 Shipping News - There is little to report today in the shipping news of the port.

At Swift's wharf the mail steamers made their regular trips, and in addition to them the propeller Europe, from Chicago to Montreal, lightened 400 barrels of flour and 50 barrels of pork; and the propeller Georgian, from Port Stanley to Montreal, lightened 250 barrels of corn meal; the balance of the Europe's cargo is wheat, and that of the Georgian corn.

Yachting - There is talk of a match between the yachts Mena and John Power of this place, and the Sleepy Canadian and Nemas, better known as the Lennox, of Brockville. About $300 is mentioned as the stakes. As far as we are able to learn it altogether depends upon the Brockville men whether there will be any race or not, the Kingston boats being quite ready to compete, and anxious to do so.
