p.2 The Oriole - This fine yacht arrived in the harbour on Saturday morning, and lay there until last night, when she left.
The Admiral - This fine fast steamer is becoming very popular as an excursion boat. A large excursion came up the river on her on Friday last, and on Saturday she brought up another large party from Clayton.
A Quick Trip - The Picton Gazette says: "The str. Shannon made the run from Belleville to Picton, on Friday last, calling at four ports, in three hours and three-quarters. This is certainly making good time, and clearly entitles the Shannon to be called a fast steamer."
Yachting - The Belleville Ontario says that the owners of the boats which took part in Friday's race think so well of their respective crafts that a proposition for another race will shortly be made by them. The Ontario hopes if a sweepstake race be made, that the Kingston boats will be allowed to take part in it.
