p.2 The Channel Open - Pierrepont ready to leave for Cape Vincent.

Along the Wharves - The steamers and vessels are all afloat, and the ice has gone about the wharves; a very few days must now suffice to open the harbor completely. Here and there the busy note of preparation is heard, and will soon become general in the hurry to prepare the various craft for the opening of the summer campaign. Painting, repairing, caulking, etc., are now the order of the day, as well in the lower bay as along the wharves in the harbor.

The Rideau Canal - describes repairs made, especially the different lock gates replaced. [Ottawa Union]
