p.3 The Weather - ....Spring has permanently set in, and the busy hum of preparation resounds in all directions in the vicinity of our wharves. From present appearances the navigation will be open much earlier than usual....The steamer Transit is running regularly between Lewiston and Toronto, and the America will leave the latter place on her first trip to Rochester, touching at Port Hope and Cobourg, tomorrow evening.

The Weather - ....The bay of Toronto was sufficiently open on Thursday the 6th instant, to allow the steamer Transit, which has made regular trips during the winter to Niagara, to come up to the wharf at the foot of Yonge Street. The ice in the Bay is going fast, and is confined principally to the lower of it. [Toronto Canadian, March 8th]
