p.1 The Opening of Navigation - The steamer Watertown made her first trip this afternoon to Cape Vincent. In the morning she broke a way through the ice for the schooner Irene to Swift's wharf, and afterwards proceeded outwards in search of a channel to Cape Vincent. Her inspection having been satisfactory she returned to her wharf, and having taken on board a hundred head of cattle, a number of horses, with other cargo and a large number of passengers, left for the United States. A large number of spectators lined the wharf at her departure.
