the speed limit within tbi city liniita of
The direct cause of the! complaint
and arrest was found in the complaint
of the master of the Agincourt, now
lying at the Portland Flouring Mills.
From this 'complaint it appears hat the
. boats mentioned, which left Portland
yesterday morning at the same time,
raxed down the .river. As a result of
this racing, and tk consequent disturb
ing of the river, it is alleged by the
captain of tlie Agincourt the stern moor
ings of thfe vessel were broken and fur-
' ther damage in consequence done to the
bridge and gangway.
The damage done to the steamer s
a result of the rivalry existing between
the river boats wasi sufficient to invoke
the law, and now tlta three, cabins
are out on $50 ball to appear before the
