p.3 Opening of the Navigation - Although the ice still lingers in our Harbour, the main Channel of the River opposite the Town is now open. Seven Schooners left Garden Island yesterday and proceeded down the River. There is however a belt of ice that runs across to the Nine Mile Point, which prevents vessels approaching Kingston from the Lake. Yesterday the Henry Gildersleeve, Capt. Bowen, came in sight of the Town from Oswego, but was obliged to put into Bath, where she landed her passengers. The South Channel of the River has been open for several days.
