Marine Reports. -- The reason that the Marine List has not appeared in the Blade for a few days past, is that they refuse to supply it at the Custom House. We addressed a respectful note to the Collector of the Port, inquiring if he would furnish it, to which we have no reply. We have sent regularly till today for it, and are unable to obtain it. We supposed the public were entitled to it, both on the score of right and courtesy. - Toledo Blade.

It is true that the public are entitled to marine lists, but we did not know that Collectors of lake ports were obliged to furnish them. At Oswego, Buffalo, Chicago, and other important commercial points, reports copy the arrives and clearances of vessels from manifests at the Custom Houses, and if the Blade had a little enterprise it would do the same.

As we have before remarked, it is a mater of just complaint among commercial men that marine lists are not published at some of the lake ports, and there is no good excuse for this negligence on the part of commercial reporters.
