p.3 The Harbour - The rain of last night had a very bad effect on the ice, and this morning it was only possible to cross with ice boats. The ice harvest is over, as the article has become so honeycombed as to be useless. Men have been working at the steamer Pierrepont night and day, and it is expected that she will cross over to Cape Vincent tomorrow or Saturday. The ice is entirely out of the American channel, and there is quite a large opening between Garden and Cedar Islands. Calvin & Breck's wrecking tug Traveller will be out for a cruise on Saturday morning, unless there is a change of weather to prevent it. Since the above was written, a large portion of the ice has gone down the river, and if the wind holds as it is at present writing there is every probability of the harbour being clear by tomorrow.
