[col. 1] THE "SOUTHWEST." -- This vessel, which struck a reef on the Canada shore and sunk, Saturday morning last, was got afloat at five o'clock yesterday afternoon, and towed to port by the tug O. L. Nims. She is now laying alongside the Reed Elevator discharging the wet corn and pumping out.
[col. 4] THE ICE. -- It is useless to conjecture as to when the Port of Buffalo will open. The ice is still an impassible barrier and almost every hour adds to the number of vessels congregated outside. yesterday a strong southwest wind prevailed, wedging the ice still more densely in the bay. The bark J. F. Joy managed to work in late Monday night. Yesterday morning the propeller Kentucky was hauled off the bar where she struck Monday afternoon, and was towed into port.
