p.2 New Harbor Buoys - The Harbor Master, Mr. Archibald Smith, has caused two buoys to be placed at the ends of the bar between Shoal Tower and Point Frederick for the guidance of all vessels entering and leaving the harbor. The buoys are painted white with red tops, and are about one hundred feet apart. There is about ten feet of water between them, the whole length of the shoal, which is composed of a flat flag of extremely even surface, lying nearer to Point Frederick than to the tower. By keeping on either side of the buoys vessels can come and go in safety, the greater depth of water being east of the buoys.
