The Lady of the lakes.-- This very elegant new schooner, owned by Capt. Walker, and others, arrived in this port this morning, from Ohio. She is ninety tons burthen, and is at least equal, as to model and finishing, to any vessel on the lakes. Improvement in ship-building appears to keep pace with the great increase of business on these waters.


Navigation.--A number of vessels have lately arrived here, among others one from Dunkirk, N.Y. Passengers represent the Lake to be shut up with ice for about 15 miles above Buffalo.--The Steam Boat Henry Clay may be expected to arrive here some time this week; The schooner Mariner, capt. Blake, and Pilot, capt. Keith, were the first vessels that left here for the Upper Lakes. They sailed on the 18th ult. for Green Bay, with passengers and full cargoes of merchandize and produce.
