On Monday next, semi-daily trips to Cape Vincent will be commenced.

The tug Thomson got away to Oswego with two light barges, after several days' delay.

The steamer Aletha was unable to start up the bay this afternoon, as the ice jam has not sufficiently moved away.

A coating of ice, nearly 3/4 of an inch thick, formed over the harbor last night, a most remarkable thing at this late date. The thermometer reached only the freezing point.

The steamer New Island Wanderer went to Cape Vincent this morning, via the foot of the island. Tomorrow she may take the upper course. She came back yesterday afternoon from the Cape in two hours, the ice not impeding her return passage to any extent.

There was a rumour that the schooner Katie Eccles, owned by Capt. Dougherty, of Deseronto, had been lost on the other side of the lake this week. There is nothing in the rumor, however, as it is understood that the Eccles was at Cobourg two days ago, not having gone out.

Day's Episodes - The case of Capt. Arch. McMaugh vs. the Fort William Navigation Company for wrongful dismissal was concluded at the St. Catharines assizes and his lordship reserved judgement.

p.5 Incidents Of The Day - A tug and three barges of the Hall company, Ogdensburg, passed up this afternoon, bound for Oswego. They could not go up the other channel.
