Navigation still open. Although we are in mid-winter no impediment exists to the free navigation of our rivers and lakes. Either sail or steam vessels might go from this to any port on the lower lakes with no more danger than at an,, other season of the year. Capt. Day, of the Schooner GRANGER, left this port on Wednesday last for Vermilion, Ohio, after a load of stone for the New Custom House and returned on Sunday night, having had a fine voyage. The scow, CERRO GORDO, also arrived from Vermilion, Ohio, on Tuesday evening, with a load of stone. Steamers have thus far been in constant communication between this port and Port Huron. Since the FORESTER laid up on 1st instant, the tug, GORE, has been running on alternate days. Now the tug EMERALD has also been placed on the route, so that there will be a boat each day the same as in the summer. The EMERALD goes up this morning. The little steamer, SWIFT, is also running between this port and Malden regularly. She leaves each afternoon at three o'clock.
