p.2 The Kingston Regatta - The owner of the Lady Kate writes to correct misapprehensions of a correspondent signing himself "Main Sheet" in the Kingston News, respecting the regatta at that place, in which it was stated that the protest in the second class race was a small piece of business, instigated by the Lady Kate. The owner of this yacht denies that he attached his name to the protest, but merely gave it as his opinion that it should be resailed, which opinion met the concurrence of the Sailing Committee. "Main Sheet" was whipping the Sailing Committee over the shoulders of the owner of the Lady Kate, which was very cowardly to say the least of it. He cited the Toronto regatta, and other instances, to show, that although not the instigator of the protest, that there were grounds for dissatisfaction; and which were of a similar nature to those arising at Kingston. In concluding, Mr. Henry states that if Phantom, of Kingston, or Sunberry, of Belleville, wants any more sailing, the Lady Kate "will not take back a seat," but will run Sunberry in heavy weather, and Phantom in any kind of weather the appointed day may bring forth. [Belleville Ontario]

Challenge Accepted - Mr. Henry Cunningham, owner of the Phantom, has accepted the challenge of the owner of the Lady Kate of Belleville. (+ ad)

Attempted Drowning - We learn that early this morning the schooner Two Friends attempted to drop anchor at the Canadian Engine and Machinery Works wharf. They were prevented doing so by the watchman named Robinson, who had orders to that effect. Two men of the schooner came ashore, and on Robinson remonstrating with them, they threw him into the water. He was rescued without hurt, and the police have instructions to look after the men.

Thomas Kelly, proprietor. Kingston, Oct. 6th, 1873
