p.2 First For Duty - The steamer Hiram A. Calvin is the first steamer in active service this spring. This morning she proceeded from Garden Island to the schooner Denmark lying in the stream and towed her to the dock.

The Harbour - The result of the gale yesterday was to partially open the channel between the city and Wolfe Island. The schooner Denmark, loaded with ice, drifted down the river for about half a mile, but was towed up today. The Pierrepont will make the first attempt to break through the ice today, and it is expected that she will begin her regular trips on Monday.

p.3 Toronto, April 15th - Several vessels left the harbour this morning, and two arrived. Navigation is now fairly opened, and the prospects are good.

Chicago, April 15th - The marine underwriters have agreed to make the rates of insurance on a basis of 40 cents to Buffalo. This arrangement includes insurance unions and outside companies.
