Marine News.

Kingston has ownership in 47 steamers, 80 schooners, 11 barks, 7 barkentines, 20 scows, and 10 barges, having a registered total tonnage of about 300,000 tons. These vessels are manned by about 1,100 hands, and the marine insurance transacted on hulls and cargoes during last year amounted to about $350,000.

This time last year a great deal of vessel transfers were reported, but this year there is an absence of such. There is an enquiry for large sized vessels.

Charles Bewick and others, of Detroit, have sold the steambarge Alpena and consort Wenona to the Hebard's Thunder (Bay ?) Lumber Company, of L'Anse, Mich., and W.W. Taylor and Capt. M. Galvin, of Buffalo, for $45,000. This is the vessel with which the Hyderabad was picked up by some time ago.
