p.3 Opening of Navigation - The steamer America reached the Marine Railway wharf about 6 o'clock last Thursday evening, from Toronto, having pushed her way through a large field of ice extended from our shore. She returned about ten o'clock the same evening for Rochester, Cobourg, and Toronto. On Friday night a north east wind swept the ice out of Kingston harbour, which was quite clear on Saturday morning. This is the earliest opening of navigation on record.
