Opening Of Navigation

As there has been no ice here during the winter, we speak of the opening of navigation as the commencement of business. A number of vessels have cleared from, and arrived at this port within the last few days. The schooner Lewis Chicaloni arrived on Sunday from Port Colborne with grass and deer skins and 50,000 feet of pine lumber to George Ames. - The schooner Farmer arrived on Saturday with cedar from Canada, and the schooner Lucindia arrived yesterday with wood from Chesno.

The steamer Express is advertised as will be seen in another column, and will leave here for Kingston as soon as the ice is out of Kingston harbour, which the Chronicle says is fast giving way. Owing to the unusual mild season, the New York canals will be open early, (by the 15th of April it is said) although no day has yet been fixed by the Canal Board. The Welland Canal will be opened about the first of April, when the steam schooner Vandalia and other vessels will leave here for Chicago and intermediate ports. - Oswego Herald, 22 March.
