p.2 Some means should be taken by the city authorities to buoy the shoal on which the Martello tower is built, for the protection of vessels entering the harbour. Every season a greater or less number of master mariners, being ignorant of the extent of the shoal, get caught upon it, and are caused detention and expense thereby. The last case was that of the barque Robert Gaskin, which came into port the latter part of last week, drawing 11 1/2 feet water, and struck on the outer edge. She lay a whole night on the shoal, and had to be lightened over 2000 bushels before the tug steamer could draw her off.
