p.2 The Pioneer - This yacht has arrived in the harbour from Napanee, on the way down the river.

The Armenia - The steamer Armenia made her first trip down to the Camp Meeting Ground, last night, and will make trips every evening during the meeting. This will be a good opportunity for visitors to go down the river and spend a couple of days.

Yachting At Belleville - The Intelligencer says: "By a private telegram received this morning, we learn that the Kingston yacht Emma will be here on Friday to take part in the Firemen's regatta. We hope that the owner of the Zitella will also put in an appearance on that day with his yacht. As the boats which contested for the Society's prize will sail on Friday that purse will be offered, so an interesting contest may be looked for." The Zitella left town today for Belleville to take part in the regatta, and we have no doubt that she will make a good show for first money.
