p.2 First Arrival This Season, Wednesday, 19th March - The schooner Llewellen, Capt. Clark, from Oswego, with a cargo of flour.
Yesterday we had again the pleasure of seeing the open Bay above the bridge. The ice broke up several days ago below the bridge, but a south wind kept it in; a shift of wind during the night cleared it out. We are informed that the harbours on the other side have been clear of ice for several days, contrary to most seasons, when our waters are open first.
p.3 By Auction - The Durham Boats Nelson, Laurel, and Three Brothers, also the schooner Richard Cartwright, of about 90 tons burden. The sails, rigging etc. of these vessels have been thoroughly repaired during the present winter, and the vessels are expected to be ready for service, and in complete order before the day of sale.
John Mowat, 1st March, 1834.
