p.2 The Yacht Countess of Dufferin - Yesterday's New York Herald: "As soon as it was ascertained that the Canadian yacht had at length arrived, she was made the recipient of a warm welcome. Whistles were sounded by ferryboats and the Sound steamers, guns were fired by passing yachts and by vessels in the harbour, flags were run up and dipped and many a hearty cheer was given from the decks of the excursion steamers as the passengers caught sight of the already famous yacht. The Vice Commodore remained on board the yacht all night. Other members of the party, however, came ashore and enjoyed themselves with friends in viewing city sights and scenes. Today the party will visit the New York Yacht Club House, corner of Madison avenue and Twenty-seventh street, where they will be received with all honours.

Yachting - The Oddfellows of Belleville are to have an excursion to Stella Point, Amherst Island, on Friday next, and the occasion has been taken to have a race between the Belleville and Kingston second place yachts. The Zitella leaves here on Friday morning to take part in the race.
