The Mail says there is a movement towards coalition among the masters of the different schooners lying in the harbor, which, if effected, cannot fail to be productive of good to themselves. The current rate for grain to Kingston and Oswego is 1 1/4 cents, and an improvement on that figure is what the projected union would hope to obtain. It is proposed to refuse all cargoes offered at the present rate, which scarcely allows sufficient profit to cover the losses incurred by shortages. The season is certainly a dull one in which to adopt such a course, but it is much better that the vessels should remain for a time idle than sail on terms which barely pay expenses.
