Welland Canal - The canal is now open, from lake to lake, without any obstruction to interupt the navigation, and is in excellent order. Although the ice did not leave Port Colborne until the 25th ult., we are informed that forty-six schooners have passed up and down, to the 1st int.. The principle articles passing down are pork and wheat; and up merchandise and salt. Some new schooners have been added to the Oswego fleet, which is now nearly 100 first-rate vessels carrying from 80 to 150 tons. The Toronto and Fanny of Niagara, are here, discharging cargoes of wheat at Mittleberger's mill.
