VILLAGE IMPROVEMENTS.--The work of sinking cribs in our harbor for the foundation of storehouses is vigorously going on, and other preparations are making for the active commencement of commercial business on the opening of navigation next spring. In addition to the wharves and storehouses that are building within the harbor, we observe that a wharf for a steamboat landing from the river has been commenced at the Ferry by Mr. Haggart, who is also, we learn, about to erect a storehouse at the same place. A steamboat is to be built by the proprietors of the Ferry, to run from this wharf to Waterloo, in place of the horse ferry boats which are now employed.
