p.3 Yachting - The new steam yacht went over to Carleton Island today, making a splendid run across the channel. She is one of the handsomest little steamers ever belonging to the Kingston fleet.

Regatta - The Brockville Recorder says the Gananoque regatta on the 24th promises to be a larger affair than was at first supposed, as already a verylarge number of boats have signified their intention of participating. From Kingston there will probably be sent the Maud, Mystery, Laura, Emma and Zitella; and from Brockville the Peri, Scud, Amelia, and Fanny Searls. The Troubler will also endeavour to trouble the winner, and the Victorine will compete. The Ramsay and Eclipse, of Gananoque, will sail, and it is thought the Surprise will be present.

W.W. - The lumber and timbers for a new steamer are being landed at CapeVincent. It will be built by Geo. Chaffey & Bros. of Kingston.
