p.3 The weather is at present uncommonly fine for the season. The strong gales of wind on Friday and Saturday last broke up the ice in front of the town, so that the channel is now completely open. We believe that neither our Steam-Boats nor vessels are prepared to avail themselves of the early opening of the Navigation.

On Wednesday the body of a middle aged negro, named George Stephens, was discovered floating before Mr. Kirby's wharf, and from its appearance it must have lain in the water since December. An inquest was immediately held, and a verdict returned of "Accidental Death." The unfortunate man who was formerly a fireman on board the Frontenac, and who lately frequented Mr. Worden's Inn, was last seen on the night of the illumination. It is conjectured that he walked off some wharf in the evening, or slipped off some of the small craft, then lying in the harbour, and thus perished, the victim of heedlessness, or inebriation.
