p.2 The Navigation - A propeller having been in the ice near Four Mile Point for upwards of twenty-four hours, passed this port yesterday, and went down the river, probably bound for Ogdensburgh. She did not give us a call, though not more than half an hour would have been spent in doing the amiable, several of the city wharves being freely accessible. Ere this paper is in the hands of the reader, Kingston harbor, in all probability will be approachable by all sorts of craft. The Magnet and Mayflower may come in today, as they were to have started for Kingston yesterday, but the N.E. gale may have deterred them from starting. The steamer John Counter will, it is understood, leave this morning for Cape Vincent.

Hamilton Bay - Departure of the Ice - ...The steamer Britannia, belonging to Mr. M.W. Browne, was the pioneer of 1854, and took her departure from this port for Oswego, with a full cargo of produce. At noon the City of Hamilton arrived, with passengers and the mails, from Toronto, and at the time of writing the ice has entirely disappeared... [Spectator]
