Opening of Navigation. - After the turbulent scenes of the winter storms, it was cheering thia morning to observe the white wings of a vessel spread to the breeze, opposite the harbor, inaugurating the new season of navigation, and commercial activity.
The visitor, being the first arrival of the season, was a small craft from Sackets Harbor, loaded with shingles. She experienced considerable difficulty in making the harbor with a strong south wind and heavy current running out, and none of the tugs being yet steamed upto drop her a friendly line. But the gallant bark finally hauled up along-side the west pier at about noon.
