p.2 Port of Kingston - inwards, outwards - 26.

-The Steamers - The Beauharnois Canal having been opened, the propellers Avon, St. Lawrence, Acadia, Brantford and Colonist, which were detained in the canal, arrived from below on Monday night, and still remained in port yesterday evening, awaiting fair weather to proceed up the lakes with the balance of their cargoes. The Acadia lies up at Hamilton as soon as she reaches that port, but the other boats return to Kingston, and then lie up here.

The St. Lawrence and Acadia broke the ice in the Beauharnois Canal, and relieved the others. The Captain of the steamer Pierrepont, which went down from Kingston, was offered a certain sum to break up the ice, but as it is reported, he refused it.

-The steamer L. Renaud, sunk at St. Anicette, has been raised, and towed to Montreal by the steamer Pierrepont, which went down with pumps from this city on Thursday last.
