      The several Rascine vessels now in foreign ports are all for sale. The brig MECHANIC, owned by Birch, Bruce & Bliss, is at Bristol, England. It is said that she has been sold, but the price is not named. The schooner CITY OF MANITOWOC, owned by Glass & Higgie, is in Leith, Scotland - a new vessel. The CHALLENGE is supposed to be in Queenstown. The ENTERPRISE owned by Messrs Powers, was recently at Belfast, Ireland. A report reached Milwaukee that she had been sold at Londonderry for $8,000. Captain Richar Powers, half-owner, says he has received no notice of such fact, his brother Captain John Powers, has power-of attorney to sell, and may have disposed of her. If he got the sum named it was, to say the least, all the ENTERPRISE was worth. - - - Chicago Inter-ocean

The schooner CITY OF MANITOWOC crossed the ocean to Leigh, Scotland, last fall, with a cargo of deals, and has remained there, idle, during the entire winter. It was the intention of the owners to sell her, but in this they failed to realize their expectations, and now they have ordered her back to the lakes. She left Leigh for Montreal on the 5th of the present month with a cargo of 500 tons of coal, for which the Quebec freight is to be paid. Shrewd calculators say that the vessel will run short upwards of $500 on the round trip.
      The schooner PAMLICO on Saturday arrived at Morgan City, Bayon Teche, La., with coal from Scotland. She will now load sugar and molasses for New York.

The bark SUMMER CLOUD, after being out twenty eight days, having been detained by head winds, arrived at Queenstown, Ireland, on Saturday.
      The schooner CITY OF MANITOWOC, left Glasgow for Quebec on the 20 th ult., with a cargo of coal.
      The schooner MARY L. HIGGIE is now a month out from the English coast, and has not yet been heard from. She will undoubtedly encounter the westerly winds, and have a long trip back.
