p.2 Captain Gaskin's two barks presented a gay appearance yesterday, decked out as they were with a profusion of bunting, reminding one of a gala day. The display of the flags of all nations attracted a good many visitors to the St. Lawrence and adjacent wharves.

Getting Up Steam - Several of the steamers in port got up steam on Saturday and today, to try the working of their engines, preparatory to going out.

The Ice - The ice is entirely clear between Wolfe Island and Cape Vincent, and a scow sailed up to the latter place from Clayton yesterday. The ice in the channel between this city and Wolfe Island is nearly all reduced to water, the ice boats sailing through it on their way over this afternoon. It is supposed that the Watertown would have no difficulty in getting through if she were once clear of the harbor.
