The Navigation.

We shall probably have cheap travelling on Lake Ontario next season. It is the intention of Captain Richardson to run the steamer Chief Justice Robinson between Kingston and Toronto, commencing immediately on the opening of the navigation. We presume the following scrap from the Niagara Chronicle, will explain the cause of this arrangement on the part of Captain Richardson:

"The opposition between the Admiral and the Transit is assuming somewhat of a North River aspect. The Admiral now makes the trip from Toronto to the ports on the River Niagara and back again, every day, the fare a quarter dollar in the cabin and a York shilling on deck; what it will be in a short time, when a single week's opposition has reduced prices so much, it is difficult to guess; possibly passengers will be paid so much for their time and receive a fee besides."

The steamer Admiral brought a goodly number of the members of the Provincial Parliament from Toronto to within a few miles of Bath, on Sunday, on their way to attend the Session.
