p.2 The Harbor - The steamer Pierrepont made a trip up the Bay of Quinte on Saturday, and returned on Sunday. Ice lined the whole shore. Freight was landed at Picton, but no where else. The steamer got within a couple of miles of Northport, when she could proceed no further. At some of the small ports passengers got out and walked on the ice to the shore.

Two more propellers have gone into winter quarters - the St. Lawrence at Ford's, and the Colonist at Glassford, Jones & Co's wharf. They both arived from Prescott, where the Bruno and Brantford still remain.

The only steamers running are the ferries to Gananoque, the Island and Cape.

The schooner E.B. Allen, which struck in the harbor during the gale on Friday night, arrived safely at Ogdensburg on Saturday evening.

No news yet concerning the whereabouts of the schooner Eliza Fisher.

-The schooner Baltic, which sunk at Oswego pier, during the gale of Friday night, is broken in two amidships; both vessel and cargo will be a total loss.

p.3 The Ice - str. Watertown had to force way through Bateau Channel.
