Deseronto, April 1st - The sloop Gull arrived from Belleville yesterday afternoon, being the first vessel to arrive in port this season. She is loading lumber for Picton. The sloops Peruvian, Madcap and Echo have also arrived from Belleville. The barque Rennit is loading lumber for Oswego. The tug Rescue leaves today for Trenton to bring down a tow of logs.



Navigation is not likely to open at Port Arthur until some time between April 10th and 15th. The ice is still strong enough in the inner ports to drive piles from.

It is announced from Port Colborne that the lock at that place is open for traffic. The water has been let in and the dams removed. The improvements at the lock the past winter are expected to greatly facilitate navigation.

Navigation on the St. Lawrence river opened yesterday at Ogdensburg. The lake steamer Monteagle, Capt. Griffin, cleared to load coal at Oswego for Duluth, under a season charter to the Wolvin syndicate, to run on the new line from Duluth to Quebec.

The steamer Hinckley, Capt. Gus Hinckley, arrived at Oswego Monday from Cape Vincent with 3,500 bushels of barley. This is the first arrival of the season and the Hinckley is ahead of last year's record, the first boat to arrive being the St. Joseph, on April 1st. Capt. Hinckley was presented with a new hat by the harbormaster.
