p.2 The Shoal - A buoy is to be placed at once on the shoal opposite the wharf of the Canadian Engine and Machinery Works, on which the propeller Lake Michigan grounded. The harbour was surveyed today with a view to ascertain to the best position to locate a large painted barrel - the best object that can be used for that purpose.
New Steamer - The Lindsay Warder of this week says that Capt. Crandall's new steam packet Vanderbilt left port on Monday for Port Perry on her first trip. She is the neatest and best boat on the inland waters of Ontario. Her speed fully equals the expectations of her owner. The engine, which is a first class one, is from the Kingston Foundry.
A Regatta - A meeting of yachtsmen is called for Monday evening next to discuss the propriety of holding a regatta in September next. It is only days since we commented on this matter and suggested the desirability of immediate action were it intended to have races before the expiration of the season. It is hoped the meeting will be numerously attended and that efforts will be made to get up a regatta in which purses will be offered worthy of competition by boats from a distance as well as those belonging to the harbour. Success to the scheme. (+ ad)
