Trip To Garden Island - The Wolfe Island ferry was ordered to try and break a passage through the ice to Garden Island, this morning, and at ten o'clock she left port. Two trips to the island were made today. It is reported that all the coal on Garden Island has been consumed. This is supposed to have been the reason for the steamer leaving Kingston this morning. The ice is firm yet. The Wolfe Islander will run as long as the gap can be kept open.
Pith of the News - The St. Clair river has filled with ice to a point reaching to the mouth of the Black River and the Pere Marquette car ferry requires the assistance of tugs to clear a channel between Sarnia and Port Huron slips.
