British Whig (Kingston, ON), March 1, 1880
- Full Text
p.3 Wind Wafts - A tug lying at one of the docks has been sold for $3000.
The First Move - Today the tug Hiram Calvin fired up and took a run around the river, straightening up the vessels at anchor at Garden Island.
The Harbour - The thaw of last week made the ice so thin and weak that its destruction was easily accomplished by the gale of yesterday. The harbour is now quite open and will most likely remain open, the earliest dissolution of the ice bridge that has occurred for years. The steamer Pierrepont is again being made ready for service.
