Upper Lakes.--Let not the lovers of the picturesque--of "Nature unadorned," forget that those most splendid Steam Boats, the Thomas Jefferson and Michigan, will leave this port for the Upper Lakes, the former on the 6th of June ensuing, and the latter about the same date. There is not, in the wide world, another range of inland seas, so splendid, so variegated or so extensive, as the one to be traversed upon this voyage.


Lake Business.--The activity of our Canal and Lake business exceeds all precedent. We have now a much heavier press of goods and of emigrants, than we had on the opening of navigation. The crowd of both persons and property has daily increased since that time, and every craft leaves port will all she can stow. Our Steam Boats, Brigs and Schooners come and go at all hours of the day and night; our hotels are thronged to overflowing; our streets crowded with strange faces, and some dozen or more new and heavy mercantile establishments have opened among us within the last fortnight.
