p.2 Marine News - The appended additions, apart from those noticed in a late issue of the News, will be made to the "shipping of 1872":- Captain Collier and Brothers are building a new vessel, 12,000 bushels capacity, at Cooper's Shipyard, South Bay. It will be completed about June. Messrs. Anderson and Downey, of Napanee, are constructing a large barge, of a schooner design, having a centre board, two masts and sails. She will be placed in tow of the steam-barge Kincardine, recently purchased by that firm to trade in lumber, railroad ties, cedar posts, etc., between Belleville and Charlotte. The same firm is also rebuilding the schooner Howard at Napanee, which in this respect presents a lively aspect at the present time. The schooners Ocean Wave, of Picton, the Catherine, of Cobourg, the Belle Case, of Milford, the Flora Jane, of Picton, the Maggie, of Picton, the Jessie Browne, of Milford, the Newcastle, of Picton, and the new schooner Olive Branch, built at Picton last fall by Messrs. Walter Ross and Company for Captain Dix, of Garden Island, have all wintered at Napanee. A new vessel, capacity 9,000 bushels, will be finished at Picton in time for the fall "rush." Mr. Redmond, at the same place, is preparing to rebuild the schooner Sarah Bond; and the steamer Picton is receiving a splendid upper cabin and saloon, which will render her accommodation very comfortable. At Mill Point the Messrs. Rathbun and Son are building two large barges to be engaged in the lumber trade between ports on the Bay of Quinte and Oswego; and the schooners Clevis ? and Caledonia have been hauled out on the ways for general repairs.

Freight Prospects - at Chicago.

Brevities - This day last year the steamer Watertown crossed to Cape Vincent. Today the ice is as good as it has been all winter, and by present appearances it may remain for a month.

Wire Rigging - Capt. Wm. Lewis sole agent for Binks Brothers' Celebrated Double Charcoal Wire Rope.
