p.2 A Start - The powerful steam tug John Bright, belonging to the Montreal Transportation Company, yesterday tested her machinery by raising steam and forcing a passage through the ice for quite a distance in the harbour and thence to Kinghorn's wharf. Her bow is plated with sheet iron, and Captain Gaskin, who had her in charge, says that had she been in good working order, she could have cut the ice-bridge in any part. A clear spot was visible in the channel opposite the city today. It is the intention to run the steamer Pierrepont over to Wolfe Island tomorrow, and to Cape Vincent on Monday.

-The ferry steamer has commenced running between Belleville and Prince Edward County, the channel being open opposite the city.
