p.2 Navigation Opening - Telegrams in the Detroit Free Press of Saturday state that navigation has opened on lakes Michigan and Erie. On the former the schooner Ottawa left Spring Lake for Chicago with a load of lumber, and reports the passage perfectly free from ice. On Lake Erie the steamer Golden Eagle arrived at Sandusky from Putinaw Bay on Friday last, and also reports the Lake and river free from ice. This is an early opening of navigation.

The Kincardine and two or three schooners are being overhauled and repaired for the spring trade at Napanee.

A new steam pleasure yacht is building for Messrs. Rathbun. She is 50 feet keel, 12 feet beam, and is intended to be a clipper for speed.

The new steamer which is being built for McCuaig & Co. at Mill Point is being pushed forward as fast as possible, and will be ready to launch early next summer.
