p.2 Close of the Navigation - The River Mail steamer Gildersleeve came up on her last trip yesterday evening. We learn from Captain Maxwell that the St. Lawrence Canals were closed by ice on Tuesday night. The Rideau is also closed. The Princess Royal left Kingston for Toronto on Tuesday evening on her last trip for the season. The Bay of Quinte steamer Prince of Wales, is laid up, and the City of Kingston left this port on Wednesday evening on her last trip. There is still a large quantity of Flour in store here, which cannot be forwarded, as no more barges can get up from below. Schooners from the Lake Ports will no doubt increase the quantity of produce in store, ere Kingston Harbor freezes, particularly if the large fleet lately locked up in the Welland Canal has been liberated.

The America came into port from Rochester, on Saturday morning. Captain Kerr informs us of several vessels on Lake Ontario, having suffered during the storm. He gives the following list; but he fears he has not enumerated them all. The American has gone on another trip to Rochester; and we are told that she will probably make yet another, before going into winter quarters:- The schooner Western ashore at Irondiquot Bay; the Hamilton Merritt and Endeavour on Braddock's Point; another schooner, name not known, off Grasse Point; the schr. Missouri on shore at Rush Creek; a brig and two schooners on shore between the Devil's Nose and Oak Orchard - one of them the Poulett Thompson; the name of the others unknown. [Toronto Colonist]

Three of the regular steamers plying between Kingston and Lachine being disabled from running, one by an accident to her machinery, and the other two by a collision, in which, fortunately, no one was injured, the post-office department at Kingston was afraid the Western Mail for Europe would not reach Montreal in time to be despatched to Boston. In this dilemma Messrs. McPherson & Crane, with great promptitude, placed at the disposal of the department their steam propeller Meteor, Capt. Kelly, which was accordingly chartered, and left Kingston with the downward Mails and the Mail, on Tuesday afternoon, and arrived at Lachine yesterday morning. But for this promptitude on the part of Messrs. McPherson & Crane, most of the Mails for Europe, via Montreal, could not have reached Boston in time for the steamer. [Montreal Gazette]
