p.2 Cobourg, Oct. 5th - The second day's racing of the match between the yachts Ina, of Toronto, and Gorilla, of this place, came off today. About 11 o'clock, a.m., the start was made. The Gorilla gave the Ina a start of 2 1/2 minutes, the time allowed by tonnage, but before they had gone a mile with a good breeze the Gorilla was up to her and got a slight lead, which she kept up to the buoy at Grafton, which she passed three minutes ahead. When coming up against the wind the Gorilla took in water, as the sea was running very high, and had to run back to quarters, leaving the Ina fully five miles ahead with fourteen miles yet to go, which she did, arriving under reefed sail about six p.m., winner of the second heat in the three day's race. Tomorrow's race is looked for with interest, as there is considerable money staked on the result.
