p.2 The navigation has entirely closed, and winter may be said to have fairly set in. The frost of the three last days has been pretty intense, so much so as to have given a strong coat of ice to the water of the bay below the bridge, and to cover the harbor above with a thin sheet. The latter has, however, been dispersed by the wind, but the former ice holds good and affords a splendid field for a hundred skaters. All the regular steamers are laid up. The last laden barges departed for Montreal on Saturday, in tow of the steamers Erie and Port Stanley. There is yet a goodly quantity of produce in store, which the forwarders have been unable to get away, and should the breach in the Welland Canal have been repaired as speedily as was anticipated, they may yet have a large addition to the present stock, some fifteen or twenty cargoes having been checked in their progress here by the untoward accident to the Welland.
