IJetwecu the bridge and the dam the
river is again clear of ice. Yesterday the
steamboat "WrightsviHc" plowed its
way through the ice te this side of the
river te open a chauuel te tow canal beats
fiem one shore te the ether, and than,
after breaking up the ice l the ce.il
chutes another channel was formed from
the outlet at the bridge te the raft chutes
in the dam, the latter tecairy away loose
and broken ice before it could re-form.
The idea worked well, but during last
uight the balance of the magnificent stretch
of ice, before the town, broke aud by the
aid of the high winds which had .sprung
up was carried away, ever the dam and
down the river.
The ice was net of sufficient thickness
te damage the dam te any extent and, we
judge, everything about there is all light.
There is a rise in the river of about a feet
since yesterday afternoon, and en this lisc
ice could easily float away. This morning
a couple of canal beats arrived :t the
chutes, but it is thought they will net be
leaded and that they will remain heie dur
ing the winter. A row beat which has
broken loose from somewhere is floating
amidst the broken ice in the chutes. Above
the biidge the ice remains solid and there
is new but little probability of itb break
