p.2 Masters & owners of vessels should read the advertisement of the Collector of Customs of this port, issued in accordance with the new regulations as to the coasting trade. Every vessel, whether steamer, schooner, or barge, is recquired to report both inwards and outwards, under a penalty of $100. And every vessel is also recquired to be registered at the port to which she belongs, otherwise she is liable to be treated as a foreign vessel. In the case of passenger steamers passing through at night, if the rule requiring an outward clearance be rigidly enforced, much inconvenience and loss will result, but we have reason to believe that some special exceptions will be made in the meantime till the gov't is communicated with.
