Harbor Main Notes.

Mr. Patrick Kennedy, our young and enterprising merchant and fellow townsman, has just made an addition to his fleet of schooners by the purchase of a staunch schr. at LaHavre, and a crew under the command of Philip Healy left by Sunday's express to bring her down. She takes a load of coal from North Sydney to Hr. Main.
Mr. Kennedy's fleet now comprises six schooners, all of which will engage in the Labrador fishery. Such enterprise is commendable and deserves success.
