p.2 Ship Canal Around The Falls - planned for American side.

Damage to Oswego Harbor - A correspondent at Oswego informs us that the injury to the piers at that place by the gale of the 18th inst. was very serious, upwards of 200 feet of the middle portion of the west one, being swept entirely out to some distance below the surface of the water. It was constructed of wooden cribs, filled with stone, and the timbers were mostly rotten. The remainder of the pier, with a light-house on the outer end of it, is in danger. The piers consist of a stone wall built across the broad of the Oswego River, with a gap near the middle, for vessels to pass through. At one side of this gap stands the light-house. [Rochester American]
