p.1 Yachting - The Countess of Dufferin still remains unsold, and Major Gifford, it is understood, is likely to be a heavy loser by his spirited undertaking to whip the champion yacht of the New York Club. If properly sailed and trimmed, the best American authorities agree that the Countess could next year give them very serious trouble. Under these circumstances we are not surprised to hear that several gentlemen have it in contemplation to buy and equip the Countess for what is sure to turn out a more successful trial of her speed. The price asked for her is so moderate that we need not despair of patriotic sportsmen enough being found to improve the occasion. [Mail]
