p.2 Navigation Open - We understand that the River St. Lawrence has been for some time entirely clear of ice, and is now navigable to the head of Lake Ontario. Boats have not yet commenced running on the River, but we learn that the navigation has opened between Kingston and York, U.C., and the Sackett's Harbor paper mentions the arrival of a Schooner at that port from Oswego. On the 20th February a vessel left York for Niagara.
