Cape Vincent, April 16.- The steamer New Island Wandered (Wanderer) arrived here about 7 last evening from Kingston, Ont. This starts in operation the ferry service between this place and Kingston for the season. The Wanderer left Kingston at 1:30 p.m. and stopped in Clayton on her way here. Quite a considerable amount of ice was encountered it the Canadian channel reaching for Halliday’s point to the foot of Wolfe Island, and the Wanderer was obliged to run down the south shore of Howe Island to keep out of the ice. Captain Hudson was in charge of the Wanderer and Captain Coleman Hinckley will have charge of the steamer America, the coming season.. The American will start on the run between this port and Kingston on Monday, April 20, and will continue this run during the coming summer making two trips a day during the height of the season. Captain Robert Carnegie, a former captain of the America will have charge of the steamer North King this season, and will run from Charlotte to Rockport Canada.
The steamer Ringleader was the first boat to report here this season, having arrived from Alexandria Bay yesterday afternoon. She was on her way to Oswego and stopped at the breakwater on account of the northeast wind which was blowing and which blew all the ice from this end of the lake into Oswego harbor.
