Yesterday was another of those warm and beautiful days, which we usually anticipate about the middle of April. The sun shone forth in all its original glory, and the sickly apologies for snow drifts that still remain, by degrees grew beautifully less; everything betokened the breaking up of a hard winter and spring time come again.

But perhaps we are indulging in hopes of false creation, and a change may come 'oer the spirit of our dreams; but one thing is evident - the season is too far advanced for the formation of any material obstructions to navigation, and our lake and harbor which is now as free as in mid-summer, is likely to continue so, and an early resumption of business is inevitable.
