Demands Construction of a Lightship on Charity Shoal and Several Buoys

CAPE VINCENT, Dec. 24. - The many wrecks on Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence river of late years has caused the owners and masters of steamers, grain and coal transports, to urge upon the United States and Canadian governments the immediate construction of a lightship on Charity shoal, one one the Galloup shoal and one on the outer shoal at Niagara.

Gas buoys are also wanted on Coles ferry shoal, and also in Jones' narrows. They also ask for the immediate construction of the lighthouses on Carleton Island for which an appropriation is already made, and set of range lights through all th difficult passages of the St. Lawrence.
