New Vessels - Two new vessels are about to leave the harbor, one of them, of small dimensions, called the Sea Bird, being the property of Mr. Eccles of Wolfe Island. She was launched this spring on the Rideau Canal, and is a neat, commodious vessel, able to carry a large cargo. She has received her entire outfit, and is preparing to leave port. The second vessel is the Mary O'Gorman, a handsome schooner of 108 tons, built at Barriefield since last fall by Messrs. D. O'Gorman and Wm. La Chapelle, the former owning her principally, Mr. La Chapelle still holding only a small interest. She was entirely fitted out at Barriefield, which now once more is identified with the ship-building trade, notwithstanding its many facilities. The Mary O'Gorman is well adapted to sailing on the lake, and no doubt, will prove a very profitable vessel. Her rigging is neat and substantial, and her general appearance very creditable to the skill of her builders. She has taken in her first cargo - of wood - and cleared on Saturday for Toronto. This class of vessels is fast supplying the place of the larger boats on the lakes, and every year we may look for a large increase in their number.

-The Boat Race - didn't occur yet.

-Police Court - man charged with leaving employment of owner of wood scow, fined $5.
