p.2 The Crossing Is Solid - Pierrepont had to land at Fawcett's Point instead of at Marysville.

p.8 Had A Rough Time - The steamer New Island Wanderer had a rough trip from Cape Vincent today. On account of the terrific wind and heavy sea, and the ice blown into the Kingston shore and wharves from the Bateau channel, the steamer had to land at Craig's wharf, being unable to turn into the ferry landing, after coming up the river. The Cape Vincent steamer did not start out this afternoon, and there were disappointed passengers, but it was for their own good.

str. Pierrepont delayed at Wolfe Island yesterday waiting for funeral services; Folger Bros. and Capt. Allen thanked.

p.8 Incidents of the Day - The steamer New Island Wanderer was two hours late this afternoon, from Cape Vincent, progress being slow through the ice-sheet from Nine Mile Point to Kingston. The steamer Pierrepont took the afternoon trip over.
