p.2 The Ice - The ice has entirely left the lower harbour and has gone up lake. The belt still continues across from the Batteau, and the two vessels which were stuck there have left to take their course by the American Channel. They were the schooners Ayr and Alexandra, and were timber laden. The schr. Ben Folger left yesterday to load stone at Rudd's quarry.

The Norseman is expected to commence to make her trips from Charlotte to Port Hope and Cobourg tomorrow (Friday).

Correction - There is a slight error in the report of the Board of Trade concerning detention. What Mr. Carruthers stated was that vessels were very little detained here, and did not believe that more than twenty vessels were detained at Kingston over four days last season.

p.3 Port Colborne, April 9th - The tug Gordon brought in the schooner Cheney Ames at 11 o'clock, the first arrival of the season; the tug Jane Armstrong the bark Howe at noon; the tug Nectar outside after another vessel. The propeller Antelope and barges leaving for Bay City. Wind north-east, fresh. Ice moving off this shore.
