p.3 New Paddlewheel for Steamboats - We have much pleasure in stating that our worthy friend, N.H. Baird, Esq. Civil Engineer, has invented a new paddle wheel for steamboats, which is pronounced by gentlemen of experience who have examined it, as an improvement of great importance, and one that is destined to supersede the use of the present paddle altogether. We have barely room to mention this matter in today's paper, but we shall explain the subject more fully in our next number.

Kingston Regatta - The Regatta for this season will take place on Thursday next, under the patronage of Commodore Sandom. We have seen a letter from Brockville, intimating the intention of some of the good Brockvillians, to compete for the prizes - and further, that they expect to beat the Kingstonians at either rowing or sailing.
