To Mariners - Lights In Maumee Bay - We learn that arrangements have been made by the Agents of the Propeller Lines in this city, with Mr. Patchin, for lighting the channel of Maumee Bay during the season; and for the benefit of vessel captains we give a brief description of the location of the lights, with the directions to be observed:

There are to be five clear lights placed near the stakes denoting the channel between the two Can buoys - and a bright light located on the north point of Presque Isle. On entering the bay, passing Turtle Island Light, vessels will steer south, half west, until the right is in full view, for which they will steer southwest quarter west until in range of the three lower (clear) lights, when they will be a little south of east of the first Black Can; they will then run by the clear lights - the upper one being located a short distance below the upper Black Can buoy.
