First Arrivals. - We had two arrivals of sail vessels yesterday, the first of the season. The first was the schooner CAROLINE, Capt. Ewart, from Coburg, with 1,330 barrels of flour and 303 bags of peas, assigned to the Canadian house of R.S. Perry. The CAROLINE was the last to arrive and the last to leave this port last fall, and the first to arrive this spring, showing the enterprise of the house.
The second was the new fast schooner MARCO POLO, Capt. Jackson, from Toronto, with 2,000 barrels of flour, consigned to Messrs. Clemow & Bloore, another enterprising Canadian house of our city. These two houses are entitled to the credit of leading off in the field of commerce this season. They are both composed of young, spirited and enterprising men. Long may they wave. We should be glad to see many other agencies here from our Canada neighbors. The ST. NICHOLAS reached Toronto yesterday, having had a fine trip. She left here Wednesday morning.

Another Arrival. - The Propeller ST. NICHOLAS, Capt. Wm. Williams, arrived at this port yesterday morning from Toronto, with a cargo of 3,010 barrels of flour, and 100 bags of peas, consigned to Messrs. Clemow & Bloore. We learn from Mr. Bloore, who came over in the St. Nicholas, that she left Toronto Tuesday forenoon and that little or no ice was encountered in the passage. He also stated that the Propeller OSHAWA was to sail for this port yesterday or today with a cargo of 2,500 barrels of flour; and also that many vessels at different ports on the Canada side are ready and will sail the first fair weather for Oswego, with cargoes of wheat, flour, &c.
