p.2 Steamboat Subsidy - A public meeting of the ratepayers of Picton was held in the Town Hall there on Monday evening last to take into consideration the granting of a subsidy to the steamer Armenia. The Mayor presided, and the following resolution was carried: "Moved by A.I. Corkindale, Esq., seconded by W. Ross, Esq., M.P., That in the opinion of this meeting it is expedient that a bonus of the sum of $400 be granted to the proprietors of the steamer Armenia on condition that they run the said steamer from Kingston to Picton for three years leaving Kingston every morning (Sundays excepted) at an hour so as to arrive in Picton not later than 10 a.m. and return in the afternoon for Kingston, not earlier than 3 p.m.; and that the Town Council be requested to meet at as early a date as possible for the purpose of granting the said amount and entering into final arrangements with the parties." An amendment to raise the bonus by private subscriptions was lost, the vote standing 14 for the main motion and 7 for the amendment.

The Countess of Dufferin - The New York Herald says: "The races for the Queen's Cup, arranged to take place this week between the yachts Madeleine and Countess of Dufferin, cannot be sailed until the second week in August. The delay is wholly due to the owner of the Canadian yacht, as he accepted the dates submitted him by the New York Club, and Commodore Dickerson, owner of the Madeleine, made suitable preparations to have his boat in trim for the occasion. The Countess of Dufferin is on her way to this port, but she is not expected to arrive until the latter part of this or the first of next week. Then Major Gifford will require ten days to dock his craft and prepare for the important contest for which she is engaged. The races might possibly come off a few days sooner than the period named, were it not that the Madeleine will accompany the Brooklyn Club fleet on its summer cruise."

A Liberal Reward - Will be paid for the recovery of the body of Patrick Gorman, who was drowned off the steamer Oswego Belle whilst crossing from Oswego to Kingston on July the 4th. M. Gorman.
