Lake Ontario, - The Oswego Gazette of the 5th inst. speaks of the increasing business of that place. From eight to twenty vessels are frequently seen in the harbor, where two or three only were found a year ago.

The steamboat Ontario, touches there on Fridays on her way from Ogdensburgh to Niagara, and on Tuesdays on her return. The Martha Ogden will be ready to ply between that place, Sacket's Harbor and Kingston, in a few days' a steamboat is nearly finished at Brownville, and an enterprising company at Oswego, intend building two more before the close of the ensuing season.

This is gratifying intelligence. The business on that lake as soon as the Welland Canal is finished, will be greatly increased, and the friends of the Sodus Canal should lose no time in accomplishing their projected improvement.
