p.2 The Ice and The Ferry Steamers - The harbour is completely sealed up with ice, which in the event of calm weather continuing, might be permanent, were it not for the steamers Watertown and Pierrepont which have to plough through it to get on their respective routes. This morning boys came across for the first time from the shoal tower to the fish market, which was considered a great venture; but this afternoon men and boys in great numbers skated across both above and below the Martello tower to Point Frederick. The Pierrepont broke the ice between the city and Garden Island this morning, and then proceeded down the river, breaking the ice as she went, to bring up two schooners from the head of St. John's Island. The Watertown is delayed by the ice, and had not reached here from Cape Vincent at four o'clock.
