Captain Beggs Opens Harbor
And Well Known Shipper Wants to Load Coal for Toronto on TowBoats.

The steamer Niko succeeded in breaking the ice in the channel about half past eight o'clock last night and is now lying at the O. & W. trestle. After Captain Beggs opened the channel the steamer Westford expected to get away about midnight with a fleet of schooners for Kingston but the weather was not favorable and she did not get away until ten o'clock this morning, when she left towing the schooners Anandale, Fleet Wing, Queen of the Lakes and Trade Wind.

The schooners Emerald, Cornelia, Annie Minnis and W.J. Suffel followed them each sailing alone. The Sea Foam, Clara Yowell, Northern Light and Burton, coal laden, may get away before night fall.

Captain Beggs is anxious to take a load of coal to Toronto or tow the remaining schooners to Kingston. He expects to make another trip and then lay up here.
