p.2 The Harbor - The harbor is still open, but the arrivals and departures of either sail or steam vessels, with the exception of the ferry steamers, are not worth mentioning.

The Steamers - The steamer St. Helen went down early this (Thursday) morning with a full cargo for Montreal and intermediate ports, but it is thought that she cannot get farther than Prescott, the ice still continuing firm in the Beauharnois Canal. The Kingston and Magnet have gone into winter quarters here, the latter having arrived this morning from Toronto. The Grecian, which was expected up last night did not arrive; she was still at Prescott this morning, and will be here today to lie up. The Corinthian and freight steamer Ottawa are still here, awaiting orders from Montreal.

Steamer Pierrepont - The steamer Pierrepont went down this morning en route for St. Anicette, where the steamer Bernard is sunk. She had on board the pumps which were to be used in raising the sunken vessel. The Pierrepont, after delivering over the pumps, will, if an agreement can be come to between the owner and the merchants interested, break up the ice in the Beauharnois Canal, by which means, if the weather continues favorable, a good deal of freight now on its way to the city can be brought up.
