p.2 Arrival of Sir Charles Bagot - He was met at Cape Vincent by "Angus Cameron, Esq., of Garden Island, and about 30 venturous yeomen of Long Island, (who have this season carried off every Regatta Prize on both sides of Lake Ontario,) with their superb racing gig, bearing a broom at the mast head, and tastefully rigged a la 74, decorated with the Royal Standard, several Union Jacks, and various other appropriate flags. The handsome Silver Vase, won at Toronto, was conspicuously displayed on a cushion near the main mast." He was then conducted across the ice to Wolfe Island, and then assisted across the ice again to Kingston harbour by the "Wolfe Island Regatta Club," whose "sweeping victories during the last summer at the Toronto, Oswego and Kingston Regattas, gave ample testimony of their resolution and skill on the water."
