Full Text

p.2 The Navigation is now fully open, and Steamers and Schooners are arriving and departing every day. That fine vessel, the City of Toronto, Capt. Dick, has made two trips between here and Toronto, and the swift Henry Gildersleeve, with her old commander, Capt. Bowen, has recommenced her business between Kingston and the Landing; to be followed in a few days by the complete Line from Toronto to Coteau Du Lac. The American Steamers Lady of the Lake and Oneida have visited us. The Bay of Quinte is not yet completely open, and the Prince Edward, Capt. Bonter, and Prince of Wales, Capt. Chrysler, are waiting in harbor to take immediate advantage of the first intelligence of the clearing out of the ice.
