p.2 The harbour of Toronto is now free from ice, and vessels and steamers can come alongside the wharves. During the past week the steamers Burlington and Transit have been plying daily, the former between Toronto and Wellington Square, and the latter between Toronto and Niagara. We learn from the Hamilton Journal, that there is every prospect of Burlington Bay being open this week. [Colonist]

p.3 The St. George steamer arrived here last Friday afternoon from Toronto, and returned the following evening. The harbour is completely free of ice. The Ottawa & Rideau Company's Barges are loading with flour and pork for Montreal, to go by the River.

The William IV went down on Sunday morning to Prescott, and the Kingston started for the same place yesterday morning.

The Welland Canal is open.
