p.2 The Weather And The Steamers - The strong southerly wind has been blowing all day (Friday), and the steamer Watertown had a pretty rough time of it, but reached her dock at her usual hour today. The steamer Bay of Quinte, which left here before noon, must have met with severe weather in passing through the gap. The Corinthian left here yesterday with the intention of proceeding through to Montreal if it was possible to make the trip, which she will be able to do if the way has been prepared for her by the Pierrepont; but it was not known this morning if the ice had been broken by her or not. The Grecian came up last night and at once went into winter quarters; the propeller Indian also arrived, and is still here, together with the freight steamer Ottawa belonging to the same line, and which has been in port for several days intending to leave for Montreal if the way was once opened up again through the canals. A soft spell of weather has been threatening all day and a few slight showers of rain fell in the afternoon.

Late in the afternoon the Ottawa left for Montreal. The propeller St. Lawrence is frozen in the Canal.
