p.3 Commencement of Navigation - The steam-boat Canada, under her veteran master, Capt. Richardson, says the Toronto Courier of Tuesday, "bore up to one of the City wharves, at 2 o'clock P.M. today, from Niagara, where she had been lying up during the winter." The Canada will immediately commence her regular trips.

The Constitution, under the new name of the Transit, now owned by Capt. Richardson of the Canada, (who, it is said, is to command her,) will resume her old course, from Toronto to Rochester, calling en route at Cobourg and Port Hope.

Those noble vessels the Great Britain and United States, as will be seen by the advertisement, are to run for the season in connection; forming an apt simile of the friendly relations which exist between the two nations whose names they bear. The Great Britain, which ( or who?) has been wintering in our harbour, is undergoing the necessary repairs before she again resumes her majestic course as Monarch of the Lakes, under that most skilful and urbane of Captains, Whitney. She will depart from this port for Toronto on the 15th April.

The Cleveland (Ohio) Whig of the 17th inst. says: -"The ice, which but a few days since bounded our prospect on the Lake, has nearly disappeared." - Also, "We learn by the Detroit Journal of the 13th, that the schooner Atlantic departed from that place for Cleveland on the 11th, and that the steam boat Gen. Brady was to leave for this place yesterday.

The Hudson River, we understand, is clear of ice up to Albany, and the steam-boats are running.
