p.2 Incidents of the Day - The steambarge Hinckley, loaded with oats for Cape Vincent, is fast in the ice in Picton bay. The assistance of the steamer Pierrepont has been asked, but the gunboat could not go today, on account of the fog. She may proceed to the Hinckley's aid tomorrow.

p.5 Pushed Out the Ice - Detroit, Mich., Dec. 18th - Three powerful tugs combined yesterday fought through the ice from Colchester to Detroit preceding the Watt, the big steel trust boat. The tugs required seven hours to make the passage, which is ordinarily an easy hour pull. The other trust's steamers have tied up for the winter at Lake Erie ports.
