p.1 International Yacht Race - Detroit, July 4th - The great international yacht race came off on Lake St. Clair today over a course of thirty miles, and resulted in a victory for the Cora, of Detroit, with the Annie Cuthbert, of Cobourg, Canada, second, and the Ina, of Toronto, third. The Annie Cuthbert had her top-mast carried away, and it is fairly presumed that this caused her to lose the first place. Notwithstanding this accident, she was only fifteen seconds behind the victorious yacht.

The following table shows how the yachts arrived home:

h. m. s.

Cora (Detroit) 4 8 10

Annie Cuthbert (Cobourg) 4 8 25

Ina (Toronto) 4 55 58

Lena (Detroit) 5 27 41

Lady Stanley (Toronto) 5 20 20

p.2 The Algerian made two trial trips yesterday, which were most satisfactory, the engines and machinery working very smoothly. She left for Montreal last evening.
