p.4 Loaded For Kingston - Port Arthur, Dec. 3rd - Several large American steamers, with the Canadia steamer Algonquin, have been battering at the ice in the Fort William river for over forty hours, trying to reach the elevators to load grain. After working twenty hours the Algonquin abandoned the river, and steamed for Port Arthur to the elevator there, where her cargo was transferred by rail from Fort William, five miles. The Algonquin cleared this evening for Kingston with a full cargo, while the four American steamers are frozen in solid in the Fort William river and the masters have abandoned all hope of getting out until the opening of navigation next spring.
