p.2 The Bay of Quinte - The steamer Bay of Quinte which left here on her first trip to Belleville on Thursday morning, got back early yesterday afternoon. The route is entirely clear of ice, much more so than is usually found during the first spring trip up the bay. The steamer took up a very fair cargo of freight from Picton to Belleville, and down again from Belleville to Picton, on her return trip. She will now make regular trips to Belleville and intermediate ports.

Tug Wales - The tug Wales which left here on Thursday afternoon, in company with the Glide, for Hamilton, returned during the night, owing to having sustained a slight damage to one of her water pipes, which prevented her from proceeding up the lake. The necessary repairs having been made the Wales started again today for Hamilton.

Vessels On the Move - The steamer Watertown now makes two trips a day between this town city and Cape Vincent at the hours named in her advertisement; the Bay of Quinte has entered on her regular trips to Belleville and back; the Spartan ran down to Gananoque this morning to bring up wood for the other steamers of the Lake and River Navigation Company; the propeller Bristol has returned from Toronto with 549 bbls and 102 bags flour, 5000 bricks, and 12,399 bushels peas; the schooner D. McInnis from Hamilton, and schooner Catherine from Amherst Island, have arrived, the former with 18,100 staves, the latter 6,350 bushels oats; and the schooner Jessie Brown from Milford with a general cargo. These with the Vision outwards to Napanee, and the steamer Pierrepont on her regular ferry trips, are the vessels which have come and gone since Thursday. The steamer Huron will leave for Gananoque on Monday to bring wood up for the remainder of Jacques and Tracey's propellers fitting up here.
