p.3 Ontario & Quebec Navigation Co. - The annual meeting of the above Company was held in Belleville on Tuesday last.

Mr. Thos. Kelso was re-elected President. Mr. D.R. Ross, of Montreal, was elected Secretary, and the following gentlemen compose the Board of Directors: W.H. Austin, Trenton; Capt. Morden, Northport; Thos. Bog and John Allen, Picton; John Ogilvie, Montreal; and Donald Ross, Montreal. The Alexandra will be placed on the same route as early as possible in the season. [Ontario]
Opening of Navigation - A telegram from Toronto yesterday announced the first arrival of the season at that port, and stated that the ice was quite rotten. At this port, unless an extraordinary thaw comes, there does not seem any prospect of opening until the middle of April. The ice is now as strong as ever it was, and is from 18 to 20 inches thick. Meanwhile, however, active preparations are going on on board the different steamers for the coming summer. The mail boats are being painted and fixed up generally. Soon work will begin on the schooners in the harbour, but many of the captains are of opinion that they will be unable to get out until the 1st of May. Marine insurances begins on the 1st of April.
The Welland Canal Mission - Mr. Bone's stay in Kingston continues.
