p.2 Yesterday's Squall - Yesterday's squall caused considerable consternation down the river, where several narrow escapes took place..... On the canal .... the scow Alice Mary had her main boom blown away and had to substitute a tree cut from the shore in its place. The barque Pride of America was almost upset by having her mizzens set.

Seized - The steamer Magnet was seized on Wednesday at Alexandria Bay for a pretended violation of the Coasting Laws, and compelled the Captain to give a bond for the payment of $556 as a penalty for the same.

The steamer Maud will leave on Sunday morning at eight o'clock for Alexandria Bay, in time to hear the Rev. Henry Ward Beecher preach at the eleven o'clock service.

Yachting - Some time ago it was announced in the Belleville papers that there was to be a yacht race for second class yachts at the Oddfellow's picnic today, when $25 was to be added to the $25, run for by the Emma and Belleville boats on the first of July, for the first prize. On the strength of this announcement the Emma and Zitella fitted up and were all ready for the race today when, in order to be sure, a telegam was sent to Belleville yesterday asking if there was any certainty of a race, and an answer was received saying that those interested would not allow the $25 to be run for outside of Belleville. We have been asked to state that if the Belleville boats come down here on the 26th to the St. George's picnic, they will have a chance to beat the Kingston boats, that is, if they can. The yacht which was beaten so badly by the Laura at Ogdensburg on the 4th of July is in the harbour before going to camp among the islands. She will be here on the 26th to run at St. George's picnic.
