Coburg Regatta - to be held on 6th and 7th August.

New Vessel - The Dashing Wave, a beautiful new clipper-built vessel, arrived in this port a day or two since from the St. Lawrence. She was built at French Creek by John Oades, the well-known ship-builder, and is pronounced by competent judges to be one of the most beautiful-modelled and well appointed crafts that has appeared upon this lake. She has all the modern improvements, and will rank A 1. Her dimensions are, 133 ft. 6 inches in length, 25 ft 8 inches in width, 11 ft 6 inches depth of hold,, and is 362 tons burthen. She is owned by Jas. Wade, of Ogdensburgh, and Capt. R.B. Chapman, of Morristown, and is commanded by Capt. Chas. Eggleston. She is to sail this evening for Chicago, and we advise our western friends to keep a look out for her if they wish to see a beautiful specimen of marine architecture. [Ogdensburgh Journ.]
