Lake Ontario. - The Oswego Gazette of the 5th inst. speaks of the increasing business of that place. From eight to twenty vessels are frequently seen in the harbor, where two or three only were found a year ago. The steam-boat Ontario touches there on Fridays, on her way from Ogdensburgh to Niagara, and on Tuesdays on her return. The Martha Ogden will be ready to play between that place, Sacket's harbor and Kingston in a few days; a steam-boat is nearly finished at Brownville, and an enterprising company at Oswego intend building two more before the close of the ensuing season. This is gratifying intelligence. The business on that Lake will be greatly increased, and the friends of the Sodus Canal* should lose no time in accomplishing their projected improvement.
