J. Swift & Co. - Arrived: str. Corsican, Hamilton; prop. Persia, St. Catharines; str. Spartan, Montreal; prop. Kincardine, Belleville; str. Osprey, Hamilton; schr. Fearless, Cleveland, 376 tons coal.

Prize Boat - Mr. Jacob Sharman, of Barriefield, has lately gone into the business of boat building with spirit, and intends to do his best to produce such work as will sustain the credit of Kingston and Barriefield for producing good boats. He is an experienced carpenter, and the fancy pleasure skiff lately shown at the Electoral Division Society's show is a proof of his ability to succeed in making a name for himself.

Arrival of Yachts - The yachts Annie Cuthbert, Ina, Rivet and Brunette have arrived here from Belleville, after a lively sail down the Bay. The first named is an object of attention, for she is too famous not to be an attraction, and her builder, Capt. Alick, too well liked here to be neglected. The other yachts are welcome back again. It is with regret we say that the Toronto papers were misinformed ere announcing that a regattaa would take place here.

Schr. Fearless, Cleveland, 376 tons coal, J. Swift & Co.
