p.2 The Regatta - The general committee appointed at the late meeting of yachtsmen to canvass the city for subscriptions towards a regatta fund, are, we are told, meeting with a hearty reception and a liberal response. It will be observed that the City Council has declared Monday next a civic holiday, and in order to give the occasion additional eclat strenuous efforts are being made to complete the arrangements to have the programme drafted and the races held on that date. The intervening time is short, however, and it may be impossible to carry these intentions into effect. Besides this and the excursion to the Thousand Islands we hear of no other amusement suggested or proposed, but the railway, it is conceded, is ample reason for public demonstrations of enthusiasm as illustrative of the interest manifested in the success thus far of the enterprise.
