p.2 New Shoal - The Detroit Tribune says that Capt. Macomb, of the United States steamer Surveyor, has just discovered and marked a new shoal, which is not located on any chart, and it is believed has, up to this time, remained unknown. It is situated about eight miles from West Sister Island, in nearly a south-east direction. A triangular water station has been erected on the shoal, 30 ft. hight, surmounted by a staff 20 feet in length, on which is a flag of black and white. This is the same reef that the Niagara struck upon a few weeks ago.
