p.2 Marine News - Picton, June 11th - The prop. Armenia, Capt. Hume, went ashore last night in a dense fog near Salmon Point lighthouse. She was bound from Toronto to Ogdensburgh, loaded with corn. She was lightened by throwing overboard five to six thousand bushels of corn. She got off about ten a.m., and proceeded on her trip.

p.3 The Daily Line - The daily line of Royal Mail steamers began today, good business being done. A great many travellers are taking advantage of the running of the steamers, and the daily line will no doubt prove very successful. The boat for Montreal leaves here at 5 a.m., and for Toronto and Hamilton at 5:30 p.m. every day except Monday.

Belleville Union Regatta - The postponed sailing and rowing regatta of the Belleville Clubs will take place on Friday next at 2 p.m. The sailing races will be as follows: Second class (course of 18 miles - three times around) - 1st prize, a silver pitcher presented by Alex. Robertson, Esq., M.P.P., and $35 cash; 2nd prize $20; 3rd prize $10. This race will also be the first of a series for a handsome Club ensign presented by A.G. Cole & Co., Ottawa, which is to be won three times before becoming the property of the winner. Third class (course of 12 miles - twice around) - 1st prize $15; 2nd prize $5. The races will be confined to yachts owned by members of the Club. Entries free, and to close at noon on the day of the race - no percentage deducted from prizes. Several of the Kingston boats, including the Emma, will go up to try conclusions.
