p.2 The Belleville Regatta - The Thistle, of Kingston, arrived at Belleville, in addition to those already mentioned, to take part in the regatta postponed till yesterday from the day previous, the result of which was not published in the local papers yesterday. The Intelligencer thus refers to the impromptu race got up between the Emma, of Kingston, and the Sunbury, of Belleville: "During the forenoon, a number of the yachts went down to Massassaga Point to witness a match race for $50 a side between the Sunbury, of Belleville (4 tons), and the Emma, of Kingston (7 tons), regarding the relative speed of which there had been a good deal of dispute, caused by their racing in a former regatta. The Emma started one minute ahead, but was overhauled by the Sunbury at the first buoy. The Sunbury passed the second buoy one minute ahead, rouned the starting buoy fully two and a half minutes in advance, or three and a half minutes to the good, and finally won the race (25 miles) by 7 minutes. The unfortunate Rivet was discovered ashore on the shoal off Northport, and assistance was despatched to her. Since the above was written we learn that in the first class the Ina, of Toronto, won first prize, $200, the Annie Cuthbert, of Hamilton, the second, $100, and the Standly, of Cobourg, the third, $50. In the 2nd class, the Union Jack, of Belleville,was first, the Dolly Varden, of Brighton, second, and the Emma, of Kingston, third. The third class race was won by the Maid, of Trenton.
