p.2 The Weather - ...The ice in the harbour and offing is yet firm, but the blue waters of the lake have encroached upon this side of the nine-mile-point line. In all probability three weeks will elapse before it will be possible for a steamer to enter the harbour. [News]

There is a probability that three steamers will be employed on the Bay of Quinte, during the ensuing season of navigation. The City of Kingston has been withdrawn for other purposes, and, as announced in our advertising columns, the Queen Victoria, commanded by Captain Harrison, well known on the Bay, will take its place. We understand that Mr. Platt will also place a boat on the same route. He is making preparation for it by constructing a large wharf at the head of Ontario Street. [ibid]
