p.1 Ice Five Inches Thick - Chatham, Dec. 6th - The schooner Spademan, with a cargo of 18,000 bushels of wheat for the Canada Milling company of this place, is ice-bound in Lake St. Clair, about two miles from the lighthouse marking the entrance to the Thames river. The ice is reported to be five inches thick. There is little chance that she will be released, unless a powerful tug is sent to her. The steambarge Juno, also with a cargo of wheat for Chatham, was unable to make the river, owing to the heavy ice, and went to Windsor where her cargo will be unloaded, and sent here by rail.

p.8 Bought The Cargo - Capt. Thomas Donnelly has bought from the underwriters the cargo of coal on the schooner Thomas Dobbie, sunk near Deseronto.

Pith of the News - The steamer Turret Court, stranded at Whitefish Point, has been released and steamed to Owen Sound.
