Opening Of Navigation - We perceived by the Kingston and Toronto papers, that all the harbors on the Canadian side of Lake Ontario are now clear of ice, and that its navigation throughout, has commenced. Capt. Richardson's boats have been running several weeks, between Toronto and Niagara; and a few days since they commenced passing round by way of Hamilton.
The new steamer CHIEF JUSTICE ROBINSON made her first passage from Niagara (where she was built) to Toronto, on Friday last, in two hours and four-five minutes. The PRINCESS ROYAL left Kingston, on Monday last, for Toronto, where she arrived on Tuesday morning; and the CITY OF TORONTO started the same day for Kingston.
Two vessels from seas, (the first this season,) arrived at Quebec on the 18th inst.. They proved to be the ship GREAT BRITAIN, 24 days from London, and the bark GLENBURNIE, 28 days from Bridgewater.
