p.2 Countess of Dufferin - Saturday's New York Herald says: "It is possible that the Canadian yacht Countess of Dufferin may join us at Greenport. Major Gifford has advised Commodore Dickerson that he will be in sailing trim the latter part of the week, and, if he does not enter Brenton Reef race for the Bennet Cup, will join the Brooklyn fleet off Shelter Island on Sunday. Commodore Dickenson answered the recent letter of the Regatta Committee of the New York club before he left the city yesterday. He advised, in answer to the question, that the Madeleine will return about the 2d. prox., and then, with three or four days to again get in shape, the yacht will be ready to measure speed with the Countess of Dufferin for the Queen's Cup. During the cruise the British yacht Helen is expected to be fallen in with."

The Oswego Belle - The Brockville Recorder says: "The Customs authorities would not allow the Oswego Belle to land at Alexandria Bay yesterday, and in consequence, she had to cross to Rockport and engage two small steamers to deliver her passengers at their destination. We understand that the difficulty was owing to the steamer touching at Clayton after leaving Kingston.

Accident - Yesterday, while the Pierrepont was landing at Channel Grove with St. Paul's picnic, something went wrong with her rudder. Captain Miller went down to see what was the matter, and got the nail torn off one of the fingers of his left hand and another finger bruised. He got them attended to and they are now all right.
