p.2 Yachting Notes - The Emma left last night for Belleville to take part in the regatta there today. The Laura is going down to Ogdensburg for the races tomorrow, and the Zitella will take part in the races at Cape Vincent tomorrow, the Emma also being expected to do so. At Cape Vincent tomorrow the small yachts will start at 2 p.m., and the large ones at 3 p.m.

Dominion Day - str. Rochester took excursionists from Bay ports to Alexandria Bay; Geneva took excursionists to Cape Vincent; the Maud brought a crowd from Sacketts Harbour and Henderson Harbour.

Yacht Race - A yacht race for the silver cup won by Mr. Strange's Zitella on the Queen's Birthday came off yesterday, the boats competing being the Zitella, Emma, Laura, and a boat from Sackett's Harbour. A flying start was effected at 12:35, the Zitella being the first to get under weigh, followed by the Emma and Laura. The course was from the Shoal Tower to Garden Island and back, thence to Garden Island, and thence up to Four Mile Point, and back to the Shoal Tower. The Zitella led all the way, and ultimately won the race by about two minutes, the Laura being out of the race after the first tack to Garden Island, and the American boat being about ten minutes behind the Emma. There was very little wind, and the race was not finished until nearly five o'clock. A scrub race for third class boats also took place at the same time, but we have not learned the result.

Excursions Tomorrow - for American Centennial - Maud to Ogdensburg; Oswego Belle and Rochester to Oswego.
