Lake Navigation - The navigation of Lake Ontario, for the season, has now fairly commenced. The Gore, we learn, left Toronto for Rochester, on her first trip, on Sunday the 27th ult.; and the Princess Royal likewise left Toronto for Kingston, on Tuesday the 29th. The new steamer America, made her first trip from Niagara to Toronto, on Tuesday the 29th, to take her place with the Gore, on the Rochester route.

The City Of Toronto has advertised her first trip to Kingston for the 5th April, and the Niagara will take her place on the route forthwith.

The Britannia plies regularly between Toronto and Hamilton; and the Transit and Queen between Niagara and Toronto.

The Kingston harbor, we learn, is free from ice and the steamers would immediately commence their trips between Kingston and the surrounding ports on the lake.
