p.2 Monday's Yacht Race - The following boats have entered for the second class race on Monday: Zitella, Emma, Maud, Merlin, and Laura, of Kingston; Kathleen, Katie Gray and Resolute, of Belleville; Eclipse of Gananoque; Surprise, of Trenton; and Victorine, of Alexandria Bay. A large fleet of third class boats have also entered for the second race.

p.3 Yachting - The Belleville Intelligencer says: "In the Trenton regatta a protest has been entered against the Idler, of Brighton, which won the first prize in the third-class race, on the ground that she is over five tons. The Magic, of Oswego, is hauled out here, fitting for the Kingston race. The Kathleen, Katie Gray and Minnie A., which will sail in the Kingston regatta, will leave here tomorrow. The Surprise, of Trenton, will also, it is understood, go to Kingston, so that the bay will be well represented in the regatta at the good old limestone city."
