p.2 The Lower Bay - The lower bay is nearly clear of ice; what remains is a mere apology. There is now clear water from Bell's Island to Cataraqui Bridge, opening the navigation thoroughly to Kingston Mills. The schooners Regina and Henrietta have left their waterin (sic) quarters, and been towed up to Glassford and Jones' wharf, where they will be put in readiness for the season's work. The Pierrepont in towing them through the drawbridge and passing along the harbor gave the ice another parting shove which will hasten its departure.

Vessels On the Move - The schooner Richson (sic - Richardson ?) was towed over to the harbor this afternoon from Wolfe Island, where she has lain all winter. The Pierrepont also towed the Orkney Lass down to Rudd's quarry, Pittsburgh, to take in ballast. The schooners B.F. Davy and Waterwitch have cleared; they left for Toronto, light, this afternoon.

p.3 For Sale - The Pleasure Yacht Alarm, 8 1/2 tons burden, in thorough order, and provided with everything necessary for a yacht. Apply to Mr. James Falconer, or to R.W. Barrow, Esq., Kingston.
