p.2 The value of the cargo of the Lord Elgin propeller, which left Oswego for Toronto on Thursday of last week, was $492,000.

The River - The Prescott Telegraph of Wednesday says:-

"The river is now quite free of ice, and Ogdensburgh harbor is navigable to the wharves. Boats can sail up to the railway depot at Mile Point; and there is in fact no more impediment to the navigation of the river, for many miles above and below this port, than there would be in midsummer. But owing to Kingston harbor being closed, and the canals shut, we have not been gratified with the sight of a moving steamer."

Navigation - While at the western end of the lake navigation has been partially resumed, and the river is to a considerable extent open, our harbor and bay remain closed. There are, at length, however, some indications of a break up. The open water of the lake is visible from the City Hall dome, and we yesterday observed between this city and the opposite islands two or three break in the ice, which will no doubt rapidly extend under the influence of the warm sunshine which is now daily enjoyed. The large bay below Bell's Island is almost free from ice. We see it stated that the schooner Edith took a cargo from Ogdensburgh to Brockville some days ago.
