p.2 At the latest dates from Buffalo no sail vessels could get out or in at that port. Some steamers have worked through the ice, but no other craft can get through the immense fields of ice which continue to block up the lower end of Lake Erie. The Welland Canal and Lake Erie above its entrance into Lake Erie, have afforded a clear navigation since the 1st day of April, and the arrival here of vessels in a little over six days from Sandusky, with full cargoes, shows conspicuously the advantage in this respect, of the Oswego over the Buffalo route.
