p.2 The Navigation - The navigation still continues open, and it is possible for steamers to come and go in and out of this harbor as usual. The steamer Bay of Quinte and propeller Indian have been added to the number of vessels that have gone into winter quarters. The Empress, which went up to Trenton on Friday, passed down on Sunday morning, after taking on a cargo here for Montreal, where she will be laid up. The steamer Osprey and propellers Avon and St. Lawrence, and another vessel, were at South Bay this morning, waiting for a change of weather; they will probably reach here tonight. The Pierrepont and Watertown are still running to Wolfe Island and Cape Vincent.

Port Colborne, Dec. 2nd - The schooner Davy is still on the reef; she has a lighter alongside but could not work owing to the storm.

Over 40 vessels are in the canal bound down. The Captains are doubtful of getting through unless the weather moderates.

Police Court - two sailors drinking, mistakenly think they were robbed.
