Grand Regatta at Belleville - A grand regatta is to be held at Belleville on Monday, the 22nd instant, when prizes to the amount of nearly $600 will be awarded. A large and influential committee, with the Mayor of Belleville, as chairman, has the arrangements, and we have no doubt but that it will be successful. Could not something of the same sort be got up in Kingston? We are sure there are boats enough for the purpose, and the harbour is unequalled in Canada, as a racing water. Won't some of our sports try to do it?
