Light House at Fort Gratiot.--This light house was finished some months ago, but we have not heard the opinion of mariners as to its usefulness. it is on an important point in the navigation of the western lakes, being situated at the foot of Lake Huron, and if its position is well chosen and its height sufficient, it will prove a valuable assistance to vessels coming down in the night.

We are happy to learn that Col. George M'Dougall of this city, has been appointed Keeper, and have no doubt that the duties of the appointment will be well attended to.
