Ice On the Lake - We learn from the fishermen that the ice for miles out is very smooth, and about a foot and a half thick. The steady cold weather which we experienced early in the winter, and the small quantity of snow which fell, has made it of an even thickness. The ice in the canal is fast dissolving under the present mild weather, and in many places for hundreds of yards it has entirely disappeared. [Buffalo Republican]
