The Sail Vessels - There is some activity now among the shipping at Charlotte, and vessels begin to move. The opening of the Welland Canal, which is expected to take place tomorrow, is the signal for movement among the craft engaged in the Upper Lake trade.

The schooner Return sailed for Chicago on Friday night, to await the opening of the canal at Port Dalhousie.

The Schooner Mary Ann Rankin, a fine, new craft, is taking in a load of furniture and merchandise at Charlotte for Chicago, and will probably call this evening or tomorrow.

The fine, large schooner Tarry Not, whose name is not a misnomer, is being fitted out for Chicago by Capt. Rogers, and will sail soon. The H.S. Fairchild, another vessel of the same owner, now at Sodus, will also go up soon. [Oswego Times]

The schooner Bloomer sailed for Whitby on Friday to bring a cargo of grain to this place. [Rochester Union 5th]
