p.2 Navigation - The ice is fast disappearing and with a short continuance of the present warm weather, will have totally disappeared. The floating ice packs with each high wind, making navigation somewhat troublesome in some parts of the bay, but a breeze from an opposite direction disperses it again. The steamer Watertown made a trip to Wolfe Island yesterday, and thence went to the assistance of the barque Jessie Drummond, who had dragged her anchor while lying at Wolfe Island, and was carried away with the drift ice. She was rescued by the steamer from her somewhat perilous situation. The steamer Gazelle made her first trip yesterday to Wolfe Island, which will be continued daily, while the Watertown will confine herself to her daily trips to Cape Vincent. There is but little canvass as yet to be seen upon the bay, the little sloop Fanny Letford (sic - Ledford ?) being the only one visible today.
