p.2 Port Colborne, Dec. 6th - The following vessels have arrived from Buffalo to lay up in the canal here. They can get out of this harbor earlier in the spring:- schooners Jane Ralston, George Suffle, North Star; Brig Banner; Barque John Menir.

The barques Canada, Foster, Plymouth and Laura E. Calvin are here, bound down. They cannot proceed for the ice. They are waiting until two or three Northern Transportation propellers get up. One propeller got as far as Welland last night, but could not proceed any farther.

They are taking wet corn out of the schooner Davy. It will be sold here or taken to Buffalo.

The Steamers - None but the ferry steamers have ventured out all day, and none have entered the harbor. The steamer Bruce, from Clayton, looked out for a snug corner in port in preference to going down the river. The propellers which went to Ogdensburgh and Prescott on Wednesday to discharge cargo, have not yet returned.
