THE OTTAWA RIVER.

Much damage was done to the Steamers Perth, Phoenix, and Prince Albert, on Sunday night last, by an accumulation of ice in the Bay at the foot of the Canal Locks, where these vessels lay. Some stationary ice opposite the Hull Landing impeded the passage of the broken ice in its descent from the upper Lakes, and a high breeze from the north-west settled in about twelve o'clock, the floating ice was driven in shore and against the vessels lying at anchor. A Barge lying along side the Phoenix, was stove in and sunk in shallow water, forming a means of protection to the sides of the new Boat, otherwise much damage might have been done. The Prince Albert being in a more exposed situation, was driven on shore and damaged considerably. The Perth suffered much injury, but we believe her affairs have been completed.

The steamer Perth left the Government Wharf yesterday for Grenville, but did not succeed in reaching there, owing to the great quantity of ice opposite L'Orignal. She starts again on Monday with better chances of success.

We believe the steamer Emerald leaves Aylmer on Monday for the Chatts, and the Steamer Oregon will leave the Railroad terminus on the same day for Portage du Fort. [Bytown Packet]
