p.2 Navigation - The Magnet arrived here yesterday morning from Toronto, and the Passport left here for the head of the lake at 3 p.m. The New Era went down the river to Prescott and Ogdensburgh, passing however round the head of Long Island, as the river channel on this side, a few miles below the city, appears to be barred by drift ice. The Mayflower left at 10 for Cape, from whence the Champion arrived the previous evening with a considerable quantity of merchandize. Several schooners have left the harbor for upper ports, and others are about to follow. Almost everything out of doors wears a bustling, busy appearance.

The Highlander arrived here yesterday about half-past two o'clock from below.

Canal Tolls - rates for St. Lawrence, Welland and other canals given in Official Gazette.

The Steamer Champion, Capt. Marshall, will leave the United States Wharf, at 10 o'clock this morning, for Prescott, Ogdensburgh and intermediate ports. April 8th.
