MARINE INTELLIGENCE.

James Shappee, Belleville, has purchased the schooner Peruvian from Randall Hawkins, Kingston.

The steamer Lake Michigan, Fort William, wheat laden, is on her way down Lake Ontario for this port.

The steamer Pierrepont made a trip to Gananoque yesterday. She will continue to run down to that port every Wednesday until the close of the season.

The steamer Islander, on the Kingston-Cape Vincent route, will continue to run until prevented by ice from doing so. The steamer Pierrepont will then take the route until the channels are frozen over.

The grain brought down by the steamer Rosemount was transhipped into barges, where it will be stored until spring. The Rosemount was pulled into the Queen street slip this morning and preparations towards laying her up for the winter were at once begun.

p.4 Loaded For Kingston - Port Arthur, Dec. 3rd - Several large American steamers, with the Canadia steamer Algonquin, have been battering at the ice in the Fort William river for over forty hours, trying to reach the elevators to load grain. After working twenty hours the Algonquin abandoned the river, and steamed for Port Arthur to the elevator there, where her cargo was transferred by rail from Fort William, five miles. The Algonquin cleared this evening for Kingston with a full cargo, while the four American steamers are frozen in solid in the Fort William river and the masters have abandoned all hope of getting out until the opening of navigation next spring.
