p.8 The Steamer Out - The steamer Wolfe Islander left her berth at Garden Island at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon and made her passage to Wolfe Island. It is reported that the river is open for a mile below the foot of Garden Island. It is expected the Wolfe Islander will get across to the city by this evening as the ice in the harbor is in a very bad condition. This morning it took the ice punts two and a half hours to get from the city wharf to Garden Island, the ice breaking and letting them through all the way across.
If the steamer Wolfe Islander does not succeed in getting across the harbor today, the steamer Pierrepont (sic)
At a quarter after three, this afternoon, the ice seemed suddenly to break away, and go floating down the river. Half of the harbor is now a clear open space and the Wolfe Islander is making her way across to the city.
