p.3 We are very jealous of Steam Boat racing, as it is the cause of many accidents with our neighbours. But we may state that there have been two races between the Great Britain and the Sir Robert Peel. In the first, owing to the Britain's machinery not being quite in order, the Peel obtained a small advantage; but last Wednesday, the Britain beat the Peel six miles in the trip between this place and Oswego. The Britain has had a large sum of money laid out on her this winter and spring, and in speed, strength, elegance, choice fare and accommodations, and good management she keeps her station as the Queen of the Lakes.
