The Belleville Regatta - A despatch from Belleville says that in the secon- class race the yachts passed the home buoy in the following order: Peerless, 1st; Katie Gray, 2nd; Surprise, 3rd; Zitella, 4th. The Emma did not complete the course.

Marine Notes

The gale continued to blow last night, and at six o'clock instructions came from Toronto to hoist the storm drum, which, however, had never been down. This morning there was a heavy sea on the lake, but towards afternoon it calmed down.

James Swift - There called here this morning the props. Georgian, Lake Michigan and Zealand from Montreal, and the Rochester from Belleville. The Magnet left Port Hope this morning, where she had remained wind bound.

There were in the harbour this morning wind bound the props. Africa, Dromedary, East, Vanallen and Georgian.

By some means or other the Babineau & Gaudry last night got over the low pier at the shipyard, and got some further damage to her bottom.

The Oswego Belle - Much disappointment has been expressed at the irregularity with which this steamer has been running lately. Quite a large party came over from Cape Vincent by the Maud last night having been there waiting for the Oswego Belle to call at Oswego to take them off. It is doubtful whether she will be in time to take an excursion from Napanee tonight.
