LAKE NAVIGATION.--Boats were running between Toledo and Detroit on the 1st inst., and navigation between Cleveland and the ports above, was to have commenced last week. The harbor at this place has been free from ice for several days, but large quantities of the troublesome article still remain in this portion of the lake, which will probably interrupt navigation for fifteen or twenty days longer.


EXTENSIVE ROPE MANUFACTORY.--Messrs. Philo Durfee & Co. recently from Palmyra and Hudson are about commencing in this village, the manufacture of cordage to an extent proportioned to the immense demand for it on the great northern lakes, and in the extensive country tributary to them. A building for the ropewalk, 220 yards in length, is now going up, and the manufactory will be in operation early in June.
