p.2 The Navigation - The steamer Watertown came back last evening from Cape Vincent, and has since made a trip back again, in both cases round the foot of Wolfe Island. The ferry steamer Gazalle is plying as regularly as the floating ice will permit between the city and Garden and Wolfe Island. The ice is so thoroughly broken, and the days are so warm, that it cannot now be long before the entire mass will either sink or be driven out of the harbor, and with it a large portion of the filth with which it is encumbered. The Pierrepont is still on the ways at the Marine railway undergoing repairs.

-Geo. F. Cleveland, the mate of the Pewabic, who has recently been on trial at Detroit, has been acquitted of the charge of manslaughter and discharged. So there was "no one to blame" for that terrible disaster caused by the sinking of that vessel last fall.

p.3 Imports - 11,12.
