CAUTION TO VESSEL CAPTAIN'S -- Near the Canada side, opposite Hart's dock, St. Clair River, two piles have been driven in 16 feet of water, the tops of the same coming within two feet of the surface. The shore from 500 feet below Captain Neal's dock should be given a good berth until getting well beyond the wreck of the BOSCOBEL.

Algonac, July 15. - Parties from the city are engaged in raising the hull of the burned propeller BOSCOBEL, which now lies at Marine City. If she is worth anything, she is to be converted into a tow barge.
