p.2 Marine Accident - The schooner Oddfellow, of Toronto, while under weigh from Port Hope to Oswego with a cargo of lumber, was struck by a heavy squall on the 25th inst. off S.E. Long Point 20 miles. Her mainsail was blown away, and filled with water. She also lost a portion of her deck load. She was towed into Portsmouth by the tug Lady Franklin, where she is now undergoing repairs.

Propeller Buckeye - Yesterday the propeller Buckeye (N.T. Co'y) deranged her machinery on her passage down the lake. A crew manned the yawl and were despatched to Kingston for repairs, but on their way here they hailed the tug Mack, which picked them up and towed the propeller Buckeye to Ogdensburg.

Yachting - The yacht Brunette, referred to in last evening's issue, sailed down the St. Lawrence yesterday. The yachts A. Ramsay, of Gananoque, and Island Maid, of Kingston, had a race at Gananoque last week. The Island Maid was there on a fishing excursion, and challenged her old rival. She was beaten, however. The Ramsey is a splendid sailor.

Regatta - A large and enthusiastic meeting of the yachting community was held at the Club Room last evening, when committees were appointed to canvass the separate wards for subscriptions to enable them to carry out their programme. The committee feel confident the coming regatta will be second to none ever held in Kingston. We trust the citizens will support them handsomely with liberal subscriptions.
