Yacht Races at Belleville - Yesterday the fall regatta of the Bay of Quinte Yacht Club came off at Belleville. Of course no Kingston boats were entered for the first-class race, nevertheless Kingston yachtsmen will be very well pleased to hear of the defeat of the Victorine, the American craft which left them behind in this harbour the other day. The Dauntless, of Belleville, came in first, the Cuthbert of Hamilton second, and the Victorine third. In the second-class race the Surprise was winner, followed by the Katie Gray second and the Emma, of Kingston, third. A squall came in at the end of the race, which compelled the Katie Gray to anchor in order to reef; the Emma, however, did her reefing while running along, thereby saving some time, and coming in pretty close to her next competitor. The Surprise was fortunate enough to have rounded the home buoy before before the puff came on. Mr. Cunningham's new yacht, the Mystery, was again successful, carrying off the first prize in the third class race. This speaks well for Mr. Cunningham's capacity as a boatbuilder, and will no doubt give outsiders a good opinion of Kingston built yachts.

Large Fleet - By reference to our Canal report it will be seen that twenty-six vessels passed through the Canal yesterday for Kingston, grain-laden. On the corresponding date last year only one vessel was reported through the Canal for Kingston - the Cossack, from Toledo with corn. This shows that the rate of freight must be increasing, and gives good

Upset - The catamaran Ida, of Picton, upset yesterday near Capt. John's Island. Her crew were picked up by the Skimmer, of Bath, which was on the way up, and towed the Ida ashore. [Intelligencer]

Collision - This forenoon the Oswego Belle ran into the Pierrepont while the latter was lying at Garden Island. The Belle struck the Pierrepont on the quarter, inflicting considerable damage but not interfering with her running powers.
