p.2 Shipping News - The brigantine Rooney and the schooner Oriental, with ice for Toledo, the Bessey Berwick (sic - Bessie Barwick ?), light, for Hamilton, and the schooners Denmark, M.L. Breck and Laura Calvin, in ballast to Toledo for lumber, all sailed today from Garden Island. The steamer Bay of Quinte made her first trip this morning. The schooner Gazelle moved alongside Kinghorn's wharf to load grain for Oswego. The schooner Richardson is loading rye at the M.T. Company's wharf for Oswego. The schooner Defiance was towed from her winter quarters below the bridge to the Commercial wharf this morning. The propeller East left Windsor this morning for Chicago. The water is nearly clear of ice in Big Bay.
A New Schooner - Messrs. Fraser & George have during the past winter employed about thirty hands in the construction of a fine schooner at Battersea. A few days more work will be sufficient to render her fit for launching, after which she will repair to this port. Her future has not yet been decided upon.
The Welland Canal - The ice at Port Colborne is rapidly disappearing, and vessels are rapidly passing through the canal.
