-The Mosquito Fleet - There was a grand opening at this end of the Rideau Canal yesterday. The steamer Nile left with 2 barges; the Rose with 2 barges; and the Carlisle with 2 barges, to open the navigation, (in which they were successful) and to procure their first cargoes of the season. They were followed by an innumerable fleet of "rackers", the great Mosquito fleet itself. Navigation is open on this canal ten days earlier than last year. The steamer Alice, which, as advertised, is to make trips from Ottawa to Kingston until the new steamer Louise is ready for the route, will leave the capital on Monday, on her first trip. There is no doubt that there is ample traffic on this line to pay well, and the company has done wisely to supply the new steamer. She is expected to perform the trip in some hours less time than it has ever yet been done.
