p.3 The yachts Ida and Enida were in the harbour today. The former is getting some repairs done.

Yachting Meeting - We hope the meeting of yachting men called for Tuesday evening next will be well attended, so that a good fall regatta may be got up here. With the best racing harbour in Canada, yacht races ought to be successfully carried out, and we have no doubt a liberal sum will be subscribed by yachtsmen for the autumn regatta.

Steamboat Accident - Last night an accident occurred to the steamer Maud, while on her way to Kingston after taking the excursion back to Clayton yesterday. Her crank pin broke, and there was some difficulty in bringing her up. On arriving at Kingston she was taken at once to the Kingston Foundry, where Mr. Adams, one of the partners, undertook to get her ready for the excursion this morning, which he accomplished by delaying the start for about half an hour. This is not the first time Mr. Adams has been the means of preventing disappointment in the excursion boats when accidents have happened to them.

Collision - A Montreal despatch says: "Last evening the steamer Passport and the tug Cava collided near Lachine. The former boat had her bow stove in and could not in consequence come down the rapids on her usual trip." Mr. Hatch today informed our reporter that the Passport was all right, and would be up tomorrow.
