Navigation & emigration commenced--Since the 1st inst. 4 schooners have arrived in our port from Cleveland and Sandusky; and within the same time about 40 emigrants have been added to our population; most of whom came through Canada.


Low Water.--The border of our river has for two weeks past presented a singular appearance--the water is so low that the shore resembles that of a river immediately connected with the ocean, at neap[?] tide--it is about 4 feet lower than it was last autumn. This remarkable fall in the waters of our river, is caused, we learn, by the accumulation of vast quantities of ice in the river St. Clair--a north east wind has prevailed for some time past, which has driven the ice down lake Huron in such bodies as to cause it in a measure to dam the river.
