p.2 navigation on Lake Huron opened; 40 vessels passed Goderich.

Collision - Yesterday morning a collision occurred in the harbor between the steamer Pierrepont and an American schooner. The latter was going up the lake, when the steersman of the Pierrepont endeavored to cross her bows, but, miscalculating the distance between the two boats, the schooner was upon her before she could get past, breaking away the schooner's jib-boom and inflicting other injuries. The Pierrepont sustained the greatest damage, part of her wheelhouse and rails being carried away. The steersman of the steamer was clearly at fault.

Marine News - On Tuesday night the propeller Indian left for Hamilton for a cargo; the schooner Marco Polo sailed for Toronto with wood, and the propeller West and Brantford for Port Dalhousie to load with flour for Montreal. Yesterday the steamer Bowmanville discharged at Anderson & Ford's wharf 3,500 barrels flour, which will be taken down to Montreal in Messrs. Chaffey Bros.' barges. The steamer Clyde, of Holcomb & Cowan's line, will leave today for Toronto and Hamilton to receive a cargo. This boat has been repaired throughout during the winter, and looks like new. Her accommodations for passengers have been increased and improved, and she is in every respect a safe and comfortable boat.
