The steamer Pellett, which left Kingston about nine o'clock last night, on her way to Montreal, was reported this morning to be aground near the Middle Ground, about eight miles from Kingston. Capt. Donnelly was notified and the work of getting the vessel off will be commenced at once. It was at this same point, that the steamer Algonquin ran ashore early this season. The steamer Pellett is loaded with grain.

Marine Notes.

The schooner Mary Ann Lydon cleared for Charlotte.

The steamer Aletha took over a hundred passengers to Ogdensburg today.

The steamer Omaha arrived from Duluth with 50,000 bushels of wheat for the M.T. company.

Swift's: Steamer Toronto down and up today; steamer North King down and up today; steamer Rideau King from Ottawa.

The schooner Lizzie Metzner has arrived with coal for Folger's, and will afterwards load feldspar at Richardsons' for Charlotte.

On account of the recent accident to the steamer St. Lawrence, the steamer America, on Sunday night, made the searchlight trip regularly taken by the St. Lawrence. Monday the America made the fifty mile tour of the islands, and at night made a searchlight trip.

The yacht Capt. Visger broke her shaft between Alexandria Bay and Fine View Sunday morning. The boat was towed to Ogdensburg, where repairs will be made. The repairs will probably take a week, and from now until the Capt. Visger is again in commission, the Castanet's trip to Kingston will be dispensed with.

The schooner Fleetwing, of Belleville, which was believed to have been lost on Lake Ontario, was sunk near the spile wharf in Kingston for about a year and a half. Capt. Max Shaw, now captain of the Bertha Kalkins, was at that time captain of the schooner, and held part interest in her.
