Marine News.

The str. Norseman will clear tomorrow for Port Hope and begin her trips to Charlotte on Monday morning.

The schr. Flora Carveth is being repaired and rebuilt at Picton.

Capt. J. Donnelly has received permission of the American authorities to take off the schr. Nellie Theresa (ashore off Sandy Beach) with Canadian apparatus.

Schr. D.M. Foster, from Toronto for Oswego, had a rough passage across the lake on Tuesday night. The vessel left Charlotte; on Wednesday morning she was off Oswego; then the snow became blinding and the next thing the Capt. saw was Nine Mile Point. He anchored at Stony Island until Friday morning, then ran for Oswego.

The schr. Clayton Belle, which collided with the schr. Thomas Parsons on Lake Huron on Tuesday, was commanded by Capt. Colven, well known here. She was laden with iron from Point St. Ignace for Erie, and went down with five men, including Capt. Colven. The vessel has frequently traded with Kingston. She was insured for $5,000.

Leased Property - Mr. R.J. Eilbeck has leased the large stone buildings and wharf accommodation at the foot of Princess Street, presently occupied by the Montreal Transportation Company. The lease is for five years, subject to renewal if desired. The building will be fitted up for the storage of grain. We are glad to (unreadable) Kingston so much as a market town, so well encouraged as to feel its permanency. Every farmer and merchant should help it.
