The yachts Laura, Emma, Zitella, Mystery and Maud left this morning for Gananoque to take place in the regatta tomorrow. By the way, we forgot to notice the launch of the latter boat which took place from the shipyard at Portsmouth on Saturday. She was built by Mr. Tomlinson for Mr. Harry Allen, and is a very fine specimen of boat building. A large number of spectators were present to see the launch, which took place at 11 o'clock. As the boat glided into the water the customary bottle was broken on her bows by Miss Gertrude Allen, sister of the owner, who christened her the Maud. Besides the ladies present, we noticed Messrs. Allen, Dobbs, Ferris, and Mr. Pillington, a gentleman lately from England, who takes a great interest in yachting. We wish the boat every success in her new element.
