p.3 Forwardness of the Season & Backwardness of Navigation - ...Whilst the Season is so advanced, navigation does not by any means keep pace with it. Although Kingston harbor has been clear of ice for a fortnight, only two vessels have yet entered it, the Steamer America, and a small Schooner, laden with flour, which arrived on Wednesday. Several timber vessels have, however, departed from this port on their regular business, up the lake, and we see that the Royal Mail Steamer Sovereign commences her trips between Toronto and Kingston on Tuesday next. The America is running constantly between Toronto and Rochester.

Navigation - On Wednesday last, the Eclipse, under her favorite commander, Captain Gordon, commenced her trips between Toronto and Wellington Square, leaving Toronto at 9 o'clock a.m., and returning the same afternoon. The America is now running between Toronto and Rochester. The Transit continues her trips between Toronto and Niagara. [Hamilton Gazette, March 24th]
Burlington Bay is now quite clear of ice. The Eclipse steamer, from Toronto, was in the Canal yesterday, but from obstruction, was obliged to return to Wellington Square. The different ports on the lakes being now open, the Summer arrangements for the steamers may be immediately expected. [Hamilton Journal, March 25th]
