The Canal- We hail the re-commencement of navigation on the Erie Canal with lively emotions. The day before yesterday, a Boat belonging to the line of Packets, passed this place eastward. Since that several others have passed, and revived in our minds sensations , which, like the channel in which they floated, had been for so many months past locked up in seclusion and repose. We understand the necessary repairs have been made, and the navigation is now open from Montezuma to Buffalo.

The impulse which this circumstance afford to life and activity in business, furnishes a gratifying relief to the dull round and listless turpitude of a long severe and tedious winter. The sound of the bugle, and the "busy note of preparation," give life and add much to the sources of hope and enjoyment.

We understand that the whole line from Buffalo to Albany, will be open and in readiness for navigation by Tuesday next.
