p.2 Shallow Water - It is not many days since a heavily laden schooner coming into port grounded on a part of the bar which is considered safe to pass over at all seasons of navigation by vessels having a large draught of water. A tug had to be sent to her assistance. A loaded schooner this morning, drawing eleven and a half feet of water forward, but more aft, grounded by the stern when within fifteen or twenty feet from Anderson & Ford's wharf, where it was supposed she would have several feet of water to spare.

The water mark on the wharf shows that there has been a fall of at least three feet in the water of the harbor during the past summer and the present fall.
