Steamboat Racing - We observe from the Watertown Despatch that a boat named the Island Belle feels inclined to try her speed against any other boat on the river. Steamboat racing is a dangerous practice and should not be tolerated.
The mail boats are doing a very large business in passengers this season, and the Magnet, on the Charlotte, Oswego and Prescott route, is also doing very well. Every other day there are large parties on board bound for the Camp Meeting.
