PORTMADOC. THE REGATTA.-The Regatta for small model schoon- ers came off on Friday and Saturday, and caused a considerable amount of excitement, as several of the craft were renowned sailers, in their way. The starters were Captain Edwards and Mr. Strowger; and the judges were Captain W, Jones (Gelli Green), Capt. Evan Roberts, of the Economy," and Captain John Jones, of the Dorothy and Mary." Distance to windward, about half a mile. On the first day the little vessels came in as follows, there being almost a dead calm at the time :— Vessels Name. Owners. Prizes. John Williams Griffith Jones £1 10 0 Duke Capt. Edwards. 10 0 Fox Lewis Jones 0 15 0 Souirrel Wm. Williams 0 10 0 Lily Rev. T. LI. Kyffin 0 5 0 I On Saturday there was a tolerably OrisK oreeze, ana the racing, in consequence, caused more excitement. Mr. W. Owen's little craft shot a-head at once, and was never overhauled, although had the distance been only a few yards farther, the result would have been differ- ent, as Mr. Strowger's boat was gaining on her every yard. From the following return it will be seen that Captain Edwards was second on both occasions. Mr. Wm. Williams' boat, the Squirrel, was particularly admired as a perfect model of a first-class sailing ves- sel.

Jones Ferret John Lewis REBECCAISM IN POEtTMADoe.Our correspondent writes- A good deal of gossip has been indulged in during the last day or two respecting a certain affair in connection with the beautiful new Independent Chapel recently erected in this town. The chapel itself has been completed for some time past; but, for want of funds, the erection of front palings has been delayed up to the present time. These have now been made; but on Tuesday night last, a portion of the work was knock- ed down by some individuals at present unknown. The spot on Wednesday and Thursday was visited by a great number of people, to look at the work of this local Re- becca, for it is well known that a certain lady proprie- tress of the house adjoining the chapel claims the right of a pathway to a back door which opens into the front yard of the said chapel. Whether that right be a legal one, we cannot say but the matter haa caused a good deal of comment in the Port.
