New Line of Boats - possibility of a new line of American boats to run between Toronto and Montreal. [Watertown Times]

Will Cause A Rupture - There is a row among yachtsmen. At the Charlotte regatta, just before the race for first class yachts was started, the startling discovery was made by one of the Vreda's crew that two pails by some unaccountable means become attached to the yacht's bow. They would have proved a serious hindrance to the yacht's progress in the race. Commodore Boswell, in the heat of the moment, insinuated that the act was that of the crew of a rival boat. This was construed as a reflection upon the Oriole's crew, though the Commodore disclaimed any intention of connecting Mr. Gooderham with the affair. This gentleman then withdrew the Oriole from the race, and it is not unlikely the incident will cause a rupture of the hitherto supposed friendly relations between the owners of these yachts.
