p.3 Mr. Rathbun, of Mill Point, has resigned the Presidency of the Bay of Quinte and Oswego Navigation Company, and Mr. Allison, of Oswego has been elected in his stead.

An Exciting Yacht Race - A yacht race came off at Longueuil on Saturday last, under the auspices of the Longueuil Boat Club, for a prize - a silver cup - presented by C.E.T. Woodley, Esq. The following boats started: Maud, Glassford, Stranger, Water-witch, Neva and Euroclydon. The Maud led from the start, while the boat built at Kingston to beat the Maud, for some reason or other, made no show at all. There was a very close contest for second place between the Glasford and the Stranger. These boats, after going round the course of six miles, passed the winning buoy so together that there was no perceptible difference, but the Stranger having started later, made the better time. The Maud, the winner of the race, holds the ladies' champion flag. She was built by Mr. Ferguson, of Longueuil. It is stated that the builder of the Water-Witch is himself coming down from Kingston last week to sail her against the Maud. [Witness].

A Narrow Escape - Capt. Allen of tug Franklin, picked up boat with 3 people in it floating midway between city and Garden Island, broken oarlock - more details.
