MAP OF BLACK ROCK.--We have been favored with a copy of a splendid map of the village of Black Rock, just engraved and published by S. STILES & CO. of the city of New-York. In addition to the plot of the village, the harbor and adjacent islands, it includes the original south village [of] Black Rock now incorporated into the city of Buffalo; Buffalo as originally laid out by the Holland Company; and a portion of the Canada shore, extending from Towson's Battery, above Fort Erie, to Strawberry Island, a mile below Waterloo. It exhibits the precise position of the several battle grounds, forts and batteries in the vicinity of this village, hallowed by reminiscences of other days, the different manufactories, public buildings and ship yards, and a fine view of our noble harbor. The maps may be obtained at the book stores in Buffalo, or at the office of T. C. Dwight & Co., Land Agents in this place.
