p.2 The sch. F. Hall, of Darlington, has been sold by Captain D. Eccles, of Wolfe Island to Captain Hudgins, of Picton, for $4,000. The new schooner Niagara, built at Green Point for Messrs. Wilson and Collier, and now in Picton harbour, has been sold for $18,000. Her carrying capacity is about 17,000 bushels.

Port Colborne, 7th - The tug Gordon started out again this morning to reach the vessels in the ice. She has now made considerable progress. She is within a mile or two of the nearest vessel a large fore-and-after, supposed to be the Ames, from Toledo.

Navigation - Two vessels, names unknown, have reached Snake Island, on their passage down to Kingston. They are unable to get through the ice barrier, however, and will likely have to try some other tack, or wait a few days. The ferry boats are running regularly now, and the ice is getting out of the harbour gradually. The schooner Denmark, from Garden Island, is to try the Island Canal this afternoon, with the view of getting up the American channel. Several vessels are getting their sails hoisted, in order to make a start the first opportunity.
