Description
Full Text

p.3 The weather lately has been alternately frosty and wet. The ice in the harbour is slowly disappearing, and in all probability will, ere the close of another week, be entirely gone. The United States and William 4th have advertised to be here tomorrow and Monday, and wagers are pending whether they will be able to enter. The Great Britain is nearly ready, and will depart as soon as the navigation opens. In the course of next week we shall take our annual walk among the wharves, steamboats and shipping and report progress.
