Opening And Closing of Navigation - at Kingston harbor for past 12 years.

Navigation had well opened at Cape Vincent before the breaking up of ice in this harbor. The schooner Whitby, from Whitby, arrived there on the 14th instant with 10,000 bushels of wheat. On the 15th sixteen vessels were lying wind bound at the Cape, but it is likely were able to get out of the river with the favorable breeze of Wednesday night.

-The barques Sir Edmund Head, Gem and St. George, and the schooners Bay of Quinte and Christina, were towed out of the harbor on Wednesday night by the steamer Pierrepont. The usefulness of this steamer in hastening the departure of vessels from this harbor at the opening of navigation cannot be doubted.

Capt. Gaskin's new barque will be launched from the Marine Railway yard this afternoon at half past three o'clock
