Opening Of Navigation - We learn, by several gentlemen, who have just come down from Port Colborne, that the ice on Gravelly Bay and lake opposite that town, has principally disappeared, in consequence of the high winds on Sunday the 30th ult., and that the entrance to the Welland Canal from Lake Erie, will shortly be entriely clear. The canal has also, been commenced filling, from the waters of Grand River, and is now nearly at full head, above Thorold. In a few days, the whole route will be ready for navigation.
