p.2 The Countess of Dufferin - The Mail of yesterday contains the following despatch from Quebec: "This afternoon a new jibboom was placed in position on the Countess of Dufferin, and she will leave port at the turn of the tide tonight for sea. A pilot has been taken on board. If the weather is fair the course to be followed will be outside of Prince Edward Island, to the Gut of Canso. Unless something unforseen happens, there will be no further delay. Lord Dufferin has expressed a desire to have a sail on the craft, and as he leaves here in the morning on the Druid for Gaspe, it is expected he will overtake the yacht and come on board. The wind now is from the east, and the weather has a dirty appearance. Later - The yacht sailed yesterday.

p.3 Yachting - On account of the very small amount of money of the first prize at the Belleville Regatta on the first of July, the Kingston boats will not be present. The first prize is $25 which would not clear the expense of the trip, and the Zitella and Emma expect nothing but the first prize. Mr. Henry Cunningham is fitting up the yacht Sappho for the race at Cape Vincent on the 4th of July next. The Sappho is 21 feet keel and is said to be the fastest yacht of her size on the lake and her owners are confident that she will carry off the first prize, which is $60. The Emma, Laura and Zitella, being too large will not be allowed to enter.
