p.2 Customs Imports - Schr. Gipsey, Henderson, W.J. Chapman, 32 casks cider, 1 package, 1 stove, 1 game cock.

Belleville - The bay was closed by ice last night and the lower ferry was obliged to stop for today. The upper ferry is still running.

The steamer Armenia has ceased running, having been obliged to turn back on account of the heavy ice. She has been laid up at Mill Point.

p.3 Rideau Canal - The Rideau Canal is frozen up and impassable for vessels. Several boats are frozen in, including a steam tug with Mr. William Newman's two scows for Kingston, one with a load of cord wood, and the other with Poole's lumber from the Opinicon. They are lying near Jones' Falls. This early cold snap has disappointed many, as there are still large quantities of cord wood lying along the canal banks....

The tug Hiram A. Calvin has returned from the Ducks with the Riverside's chain and anchor, which was fished up yesterday.
