p.2 The Ice and the Steamers - During the greater part of the day the ice had crowded down into the lower part of the harbor, but a northeast wind has since sent it in a contrary direction, and will take much of it up the lake. The Gazelle is plying regularly to Garden and Wolfe Islands, and the Watertown to Cape Vincent; the latter encountered some heavy drift ice in coming round the foot of Wolfe Island.

Vessels on the Move - The schooner Maggie, from South Bay, has been anchored off the harbor at the edge of the ice all day; this afternoon the tug Wales towed up two vessels; and since then the schooner Franchamontagne (sic - Tranchemontagne ?) and the barques Waterwitch, Arabia, Robert Gaskin and British Lion, have all taken advantage of a change in wind and left for the upper lakes. Other vessels of various tonnage are passing up and down, and the navigation may be said to have been fairly opened. The steamer Rochester will leave for Port Hope tomorrow at midnight.

The Fish Market - The Fish Market at the foot of Brock Street, will be opened tomorrow, after which date no fish will be sold on the open market.

Imports - 19.
