p.1 Notice To Mariners - Notice has been received from the Government of the Dominion of Canada that a lighthouse, erected upon the summit of Battle Island, Lake Superior, to guide the vessels to the eastern entrance to Nepigron Bay, has been put in operation, Latitude 48 degrees, 45 minutes, 27 seconds west. The light is a revolving cateptric one showing alternately red, white and attaining its greatest brilliancy every one and a half minutes. It is elevated 105 feet above water mark and in clear weather should be seen 16 miles. The tower is a square wooden building, 30 feet high from base of structure to vane of lantern, and is painted white.

p.3 In the Harbour - The yacht Dauntless, of Belleville, was in the harbour this morning.

Heard From - The Oswego Belle was heard from last night or early this morning. She appears still troubled with a bad cold. If friend Tandy were employed, we fancy he would make her whistle another tune.

The Regatta - We are informed that the Trenton regatta will take place on the 19th inst., and not upon the 12th as stated by the Belleville Ontario. The members of the committee are working very hard, and we have every hope that their efforts will be crowned with success.

A Trip - Mr. M. Doran invited "The Boys" to an excursion on the tug Wren on Saturday evening, which was cordially accepted. On the other side of Garden Island, however, they managed to run her ashore. It is said that the "Bishop" was pilot, and this accounts for the mishap. She was got off without any difficulty.
