p.3 The new Lighthouse, at the end of the West Oswego Pier, was lit up for the first time on the night of the 15th inst. We learn that the light will be continued in this as well as in the old Light House for the remainder of the season. This building is about 70 feet in height, of an octagon pyramidal form, built entirely of cut stone, at an expense of about $15000, and is decidedly the best Light House on the Lakes.
