To the Editor of the Chronicle and Gazette.

Good Going.

Kingston, May 22nd, 1841

Dear Sir, - I was this morning invited by the members of the Sacketts Harbour Boat Club to take a passage in their beautiful boat "The Star," from Sackett's Harbor to this City, and believing an account of their performance will be interesting to many of your readers, I have been induced to make the following statement for publication. - We left Sackett's Harbor this morning at 11 o'clock A.M., we were off Point Peninsula, 9 miles, in 1 hour and 15 minutes, here we lay upon our oars 15 minutes, we landed on the head of Grenadier Island, 9 miles further, in 1 hour and 10 minutes, making the first 18 miles in 2 hours and 25 minutes, rowing time, here we took our lunch and rested for half an hour, when we started again and arrived at the wharf in this city, making two or three stops on the way, at a few minutes after 5 P.M., performing the trip, said to be about 40 miles, in a little more than 6 hours, and in a few minutes less than 5 hours rowing time. The boat, Star, is 40 feet in length, and 4 feet 2 inches beam, rowed by 10 oars, and so light that two men can lift her with ease, and for beauty of model and finish, is probably unsurpassed.

Your obt. Serv't,

E.M. Luff.
