To the Mariners of Lake Erie.--We learn from a notice of Capt. Dobbins, of the Revenue Cutter that the Light House at Long Point, Canada, has not been lighted for six weeks, and that the keeper cannot tell when he shall be able to make a light for want of Oil. Ignorance of this fact might be the occasion of disasters and damage sufficient to supply the whole inland navigation with lights, and we cannot but think that a want of oil is a poor excuse for our Canadian neighbours for the neglect. Our intrepid seamen are surrounded by too many perils to have them increased for slight causes.--It is playing the foolish virgin at too great a hazard of life and property.
