Montreal, April 28th - Navigation Open - (part) We learn from good authority that certain important repairs and improvements have been effected, and others are in progress, on the Lachine, Beauharnois and Cornwall Canals; all of which are, however, so far advanced, as to leave no doubt of the navigation being fully open by noon of Thursday, the first day of May next; and that the ice at the head of the Beauharnois Canal has been so much broken up by easterly winds, as to give good reason to believe vessels can pass freely at the above date. The Junction between the Galops, and Point Iroquois sections of Canal being now completed, and the whole range of the works connected with the St. Lawrence Canals having been placed in an efficient state of repair, those engaged in the trade may look forward to an uninterrupted business season.
