p.3 New Steam Yacht - Yesterday a new steam yacht arrived here, having been built by Capt. R. Davis, of Westport, for three prominent gentlemen of the city. The boat is 45 feet long and 8 1/2 feet beam. The substantials are of white oak and pine, and the cabin and other parts are finished in red and white cedar, and the boiler is cased with the same material. The engine is located about the centre of the little steamer, and occupies a space of about six feet square. It was built by Black Brothers, of Brockville, and is a very pretty piece of machinery. The boat arrived here by way of the Rideau Canal yesterday, and her handsome appearance and proportions have been greatly admired. She is certainly a very comfortable and pleasant pleasure yacht.

Marine - Swift's - The propeller Oswegatchie, from Ogdensburg, passed up for Chicago, and the steamer Corsican down from Hamilton.

Holcomb & Stewart's - Arrivals: steam barge Lincoln, 16,600 bush corn, barge Lisgar, 21,000 bush do; and barge Gibraltar, 18,500 bush do, all from Chicago. The steamer Sovereign, owned by the N.W.T. Co., arrives tonight to load rails for Duluth.

Boat Race - Hanlan rowing on Toronto Bay tomorrow for $2,000.

Sudden Death - Mr. Anthony Dixon, Collector of Customs at Belleville.
