Full Text

p.1 Kingston Harbor is not yet closed. The Union, Capt. Patterson, arrived this day (Friday) from Toronto, having left that port yesterday morning, touching at Port Hope by the way. We have the pleasure of stating that Capt. Patterson has succeeded in obtaining an order from His Excellency the Lieut. Governor, directing the restitution of his vessel from the grip of the law.

So early has winter set in this year, that a quantity of Durham Boats and other river craft, amounting in number to between 10 and 12, are caught by the ice in the various bays of the St. Lawrence, where they had put up for the night. This has occurred since the close of the Rideau Canal. The upper country merchants are making serious outcries about this detention of their goods.
