p.2 The Steamer America arrived here on Thursday evening about 6 o'clock from Cobourg and Toronto, having passed through a large field of ice in most beautiful style ere she reached the Wharf. We do not remember that any steamboat has ever before entered the Port of Kingston at so early a period in the season.
The America started about 10 o'clock on Thursday night for Rochester, Cobourg and Toronto.
Sudden change in weather clears harbour of ice.
