p.2 Opening of the Navigation - The William the Fourth Steamer made her appearance here yesterday evening from Prescott, on her trip upwards. Our wharves still being bound up with ice, she could not enter our harbour, but received her passengers from Kingston, at Morton's Distillery, about a mile from Town.

The Great Britain - This fine vessel having undergone a thorough repair, will leave this harbour tomorrow morning for Prescott, under the command of Captain Whitney, to receive her Furniture and Stores. She will leave Prescott for Kingston, on Tuesday evening next, so as to enable her to leave this place at 11 o'clock on Wednesday, being her usual time of sailing. She will call at Oswego and the usual stopping places, on her trip upwards.

The Commodore Barrie - This beautiful Steam Packet having undergone a thorough repair, and being in various respects very materially improved, is now ready to commence her summer campaign. She is to be commanded by Captain Jacob Herchmer, and we feel satisfied she will prove a great favourite with the public during the approaching season. The Commodore will leave Kingston for Toronto, touching at the intermediate ports, on Monday next, the 17th inst., at 4 o'clock P.M.
