STEAM-BOAT RACING. - On Monday last while the Niagara and CANADA were
entering this harbour, about 6 P.M., the latter endeavoured to run ahead of the former, before they came to the bar - the schr. TWO SISTERS being at anchor near the beacon. Of course there was not room for the two vessels to pass at once, consequently the CANADA being the stern boat ought to have gone around the schr's stern, instead of which she went ahead; carried off the schr's jibboom and almost took off the quarter boat of the NIAGARA; but, notwithstanding all her endeavours the two boats came into port side by side, neither having the least perceptible advantage. - Communicated by an Observer
