Description
Full Text

The Milwaukee Sentinel of the 16th. says "The brig HELFENSTEIN, bound out with a full cargo for Buffalo, got aground in the river a short distance below the bend. The captain informs us that persons are constantly hauling sand and gravel from the beach of the lake and that the waves in a heavy sea break over into the channel of the river, carrying the sand with them, and thus forming an obstruction to navigation. The Common Council ought to take measure to have the carrying away of gravel stopped at once, so that the old channel may remain navigable until we get a shorter and a better one."
