FITTING UP. -- Advices from Port Colborne state that the vessels that have wintered in that harbor, are being fitted out for the opening of navigation, the crew of which, having nearly all arrived. The JAGO was launched over the Piers a few weeks ago, and the SACRAMENTO, beached in the storm last Fall, will be dropped over the Pier in about the same place. She will have to be brought about half a mile along the beach, we suppose in nearly the same way that houses, etc., travel.
