p.2 The schooner Defiance was not lost, as reported. She made Frenchman's Bay in safety.

A New Light - The Cleveland Herald of the 9th, says a new light has been put in the Light House at the mouth of the River. It is the invention of Henry Lepaute, and is a lens, flash light - full circle. The intervals of the flashes has not yet been determined on. The light in the River Light House last summer has been removed to the one on the hill. It is also a lens light, half circle of glass with reflectors. Mariners will now have no difficulty in distinguishing the harbor light from any other. The cost of the Lepaute light, putting it up, etc., is about $3,500. The lamp, clock work, and everything connected with it, even to oil for the machinery, and rags to clean it with, came from France.
