Our Harbor. - Notwithstanding the general depression of business which has existed this spring, our harbor presents a lively and business-like appearance. This is mainly occasioned by the lively tug-boats, which are continually on the move. They have all been thoroughly overhauled, and every needed repair given them. A new coat of paint was materially assisted in giving them a spring look, and they are no ready to perform whatever business may come within their line.

The Wm. Morgan, now lying by the bridge is receiving the finishing touches from the painter's brush, and will present a striking contrast with her compeers, being appareled in a suite of white with red and green strip; the others, with the exception of the Scott, are painted black. The latter arrived to-day from Port Ontario. We wish them all a successful season.
