CLOSE OF NAVIGATION.--The late cold weather has rendered most of the harbors on the Lake inaccessible, and most of the vessels have been laid up for the winter. The steamboat Monroe came into our harbor yesterday with the Ohio and Gov. Marcy in tow, where the three will remain until spring.-- The steamboat W.F.P. Taylor is here, and the Gen. Porter is expected to-day, both of which will also remain in our harbor until the next season.--Several schooner have already hauled up here for the winter, and a large number, now in Buffalo, will come down for the same purpose, as soon as the close of the Lake shall be fully ascertained.

Most of the canal boats ceased running several days since. The last boat for Rochester left on Tuesday last.
