The Geneva Ahead - A despatch from Cape Vincent to the Watertown Despatch says: "The steamers Geneva and Island Belle met at the foot of Wolfe Island on Thursday p.m., and had a race to the foot of Carleton Island, six miles, in which the Geneva won by nearly a quarter of a mile. They are both smart boats, but it is generally admitted that the Geneva can make the best time of any boat excepting the Admiral on the St. Lawrence River."
