KINGSTON HARBOR SHOALS.---At a recent meeting of the Kingston Board of Trade, it was moved by John Gaskin, that the board respectfully call the attention of the Minister of Public Works to the great and urgent necessity of removing the dangerous shoals in the harbor and adjoining thereto. Their non removal will, after the serious accident to the Propeller MYLES,operate strongly against the shipping interests of this Port, and be detrimental to the through carrying trade. We would respectfully call your attention to the shoal on which the MYLES struck, and also to two others--one nearly opposite the Penitentiary and the other about one mile below Cedar Island. The latter is the shoal on which the schooner BOLIVIA struck about a year ago, which vessel and cargo became a total loss. (part of article)
