p.2 The Steamers And The Storm - The steamer Passport, which should have been here this morning, is weather-bound at Toronto, where the snow storm still prevails. It is dangerous for steamers to leave, owing to the perils of navigating during the continuance of the snow storm, which fills the air like a dense fog. The steamer Grecian which came up last night still remains at the dock, and cannot leave for Toronto until the storm abates. The propeller St. Lawrence, bound upward, remained in the harbor all day yesterday, and is still here, unable to proceed. The propeller Indian, which came down with a load of grain for Cape Vincent, came in here last night not being able to make the above port safely. She has since left for Cape Vincent. At a late hour of the afternoon neither the Grecian nor the St. Lawrence had left port. The steamer Huron has also come into port on her upward trip, and lies over waiting for the weather to moderate. The steamer Bay of Quinte did not go to Belleville last night, the storm compelling her to remain at Picton. She came in at her usual hour this afternoon.
