p.2 The Harbor - ice is still firm above Nine Mile Pt.; Pierrepont is going to the Cape today.

p.3 Cape Vincent - 3 props from Ogdensburg and a tug and 2 barges of lumber from Brockville are at Cape, waiting for an opening in ice Westward.

-Portsmouth - Business in Portsmouth is improving, witness the activity displayed in the Marine Railway, of which Messrs. Howard and Kelly are the energetic lessees. The propeller St. Lawrence, Coulthurst & Macphie's elevator, and a large barge, the property of Messrs. Holcomb & Stewart, are now ready for launching. The rebuilding of another barge belonging to the same firm is almost completed, and the large propeller Brantford is in a forward state of conversion into a steam barge. Messrs. Chaffey & Co., who have leased the long pier, have put it in a thorough state of repair and are prepared to carry on an extensive forwarding business. These, with the old established tannery of Messrs. Carruthers & Co., and the well-known brewery of Messrs. James Fisher & Son are guarantees of steady employment to a large number of men, and a consequent increasing prosperity.
