ICE AT DULUTH. - A telegram from St. Paul dated the 13th inst. says: It is reported to-day that the ice which has continued to occupy the west end of Lake Superior has at last moved out so as to afford a clear channel in and out from Duluth. One of the Duluth papers remarked despairingly Friday, that the ice would stay as long as the wind was from the northeast, and the wind would blow from that quarter as long as the ice remained. The ice was then six feet thick for 20 miles out, and in places was piled up 12 to 20 feet high. Its effect was to produce a remarkably low temperature for the season, with heavy fog nearly all the time.
