Notice To Mariners - The Lighthouse Board gives notice that on and after Oct. 15th, 1875, a light will be shown from the lighthouse recently erected near the outer end of the south pier at Manistee, Michigan, and the light heretofore shown from the keeper's dwelling will be discontinued. The light will be fixed red. The illuminating apparatus is catadioptric, of the fifth order, lighting 180 deg. of the horizon. The focal plane is 27 feet above the pier, and 35 feet above the mean lake level. The light should be seen in clear weather, from the deck of a vessel 10 feet above the lake, 12 statute miles. The structure is an open frame tower, with an elevated walk leading from it to the shore. Tower and walk are painted white. The approximate position of the lighthouse is as follows: Latitude, 14 deg. 16 min. north; longitude, 86 deg. 20 min. west.

Steamboats - The Faxton and Kelly are laid up for the winter at Clayton. The West and Rambler make daily trips between Alexandria Bay and Cape Vincent. The Junita now makes but one trip a day between this port and Clayton, arriving here at 10 o'clock, and leaving at 2:30. The Carroll, a small steamer, commenced on Tuesday last to make a daily trip to Clayton, leaving here at 7:30 a.m., and returning at 4 p.m. By taking this boat in the morning, passengers arrive at Clayton in time to take the morning train for New York. The owners of the Queen are about organizing a stock company, with a capital of $16,000, for the purpose of building a new boat, to be of sufficient size and speed to do all the work required of her.
