p.2 A boat's crew, consisting of five or six men, was relieved from a situation of great peril yesterday evening, by the exertions of the hardy fishermen of the island. They had got entangled in a mass of loose ice, at the upper end of the bay, at an early hour of the evening, and found it impossible to extricate themselves by the most strenuous efforts, continued until some two hours after dark. They were finally relieved by some of the fishermen, who, at considerable personal risk, succeeded in getting a boat through the thin ice near shore. [Toronto Patriot]
