p.2 Commencement of Navigation - The steamer Watertown continues her trips daily to Cape Vincent, taking the route round the foot of Wolfe Island, and reports the ice rapidly diminishing. The Watertown had a large cargo this morning, comprising live stock, consisting of horses, cattle, sheep and swine and other freight, and a long passenger list.

Opening of Navigation - The navigation of the lakes promises to open this year nearly three weeks earlier than usual. The harbours on Lake Erie are all free from ice; the small steamers are running on the St. Clair River; a small schooner has arrived at Windsor, and various trips are begun at Sarnia. The Welland Canal is almost free from ice, but requires to be kept closed for a week for the purpose of cleaning. It is thought that it will be open by the 1st April.
