p.2 The First Trip - last year the Pierrepont made the first passage across the harbor through heavy ice on March 19, today she forced her way to Garden Island.
p.3 The Ducks - Mr. John Walters of Picton has driven over to the Main Ducks Island on the ice, since Captain Eccles has returned from his last trip. The former left on the 3d for shore, the New Nation says, leaving the famous old watchman who guards the Island comfortable in his wanted solitude and still supplied with all the necessaries of life. Capt. Williamson, with crew of seven men, was at work raising the iron with which the ill-fated Star of Mill Point was loaded. They are provided with provisions till navigation.
Belleville - the ferry steamer commenced first trips between Belleville and P.E. shore on Saturday.
