p.3 Navigation - A despatch from Port Hope states that the Norseman left there yesterday morning on her first trip for Charlotte, with 100 head of cattle and a full load of passengers.

Steamer Burned - A despatch from Napanee says that the steamer Norfolk was almost totally burned there yesterday morning, the loss being about $6,000. She was owned by Capt. Collier of Newburg and was insured for $4,000 in the Stadacona. The barge David Andrews was also slightly damaged by the fire, which was the work of an incendiary.

The Ferry - In making an attempt to start yesterday, a portion of the machinery of the Pierrepont was slightly damaged, but this is expected to be repaired by tomorrow morning when the steamer will be taken out. The rain of last night had a good effect in softening the ice, and it is probable there will be no difficulty in making the passage. The opening of navigation is anxiously looked for by the islanders, as they can only come over to the city with great difficulty at present. It is proposed that the steamers should go out to the Island at 7 a.m., and then leave for the Cape at 11 o'clock.
