p.1 The Weather - The harbour is yet open, but navigation appears to have ceased. The Sir Charles Napier is laid up, and the little Experiment only crosses now and then. The steamer Oshawa that had to be put back on Thursday, took advantage of the mild weather and went up again yesterday to Toronto and Hamilton. A few cold days will shut up the harbor and form the winter bridge for the season.

The Weather - The steamer Zimmerman, the only steamer at present leaving our port, had to moor yesterday morning on her arrival from Niagara at the Queen's wharf. (at Toronto)
