p.1 Incidents of the Day - W. Power looks for a dull season in marine on account of an early opening of navigation. There is very little repairing or changes to be made in vessels this spring on account of the very dull season last year. Owners are unable to make much improvements.


The str. Hero will start on her regular trip up the Bay of Quinte on April 15th.

The str. Pierrepont will take the Washington excursion passengers to Cape Vincent on Tuesday.

Capt. Allen says the Pierrepont broke ice nearly a foot thick the other day in crossing to the island.

Michael Connolly is in the city today. When asked if the company intended putting a steamer on the American side from Oswego down, this season, he was unable to state. This will be decided later on.

On April 1st the steamer Islander will commence her regular trips between Clayton and Alexandria Bay in connection with the R.W. & O. R.R., and on Monday the str. Pierrepont will try to make Cape Vincent.
