The Messrs. Ives are engaged in getting ready a new steam Ferry Boat, and in sheathing and otherwise preparing the SUPERIOR and the INVINCIBLE, timber vessels.
      At Portsmouth, two miles distance, considerable activity likewise prevails. A splendid brig, of about 380 tons burthen, intended for the timber trade, is framed and planked in the shipyard of Messrs. Collins & Power, for Messrs. Hunter & Pearson, and will in a short time be ready for service. Under the superintendence of Mr. Beaupre the Bay Steamer, PRINCE OF WALES has been materially lengthened, from which no doubt, an improved speed as well as accommodation will be realized. A number of vessels belonging to Messrs. McPherson & Crane, and others are undergoing repairs, and being fitted for the business of the coming season.
At Garden Island, Messrs. Calvin & Cook are making active preparations for the summer trade. The schooners WILLIAM PENN anf HANNAH COUNTER have been rebuilt from the water's edge, and others are receiving minor additional repairs.
      The ice still holds in undiminished strength, and it is very probable that the opening of navigation will be delayed until perhaps the middle of April. ---- Kingston News.
