The Maud - In our report of the yacht race yesterday we omitted to mention that the steamer Maud made a trip or two out of the harbour to enable parties to see the race. It was not, however, sufficiently well patronized to be kept up. The band of A. Battery was on board, and under the leadership of Mr. A.H. Rackett discoursed excellent music. While the Maud was going out of the harbour the United States steamer Addie came into Swift's wharf to coal. As she passed, the band played "Yankee Doodle," which was responded to by dipping the ensign.

That Whistle Again - That tug made another row at the bridge last night. We hope some means will be taken at once to put a stop to this at night.
