p.2 The Corporation - Sir Richard Bonnycastle wanted houses in front of the Market Building, which were occupied by Messrs. Macpherson & Crane, to be removed.

For the Argus.

Mr. Editor - It is now known that the new additional fortifications at this Post include the erection of a Tower on the small shoal in the Harbour in front of the City Hall. Will not the military authorities so arrange the construction of this Tower that the top of it may form a Light House or Beacon for the guidance of vessels entering the Port of Kingston. In dark nights and foggy weather such a light would be of great service, and the expense of the light would no doubt be maintained by the Provincial Government. Such a use of the tower could not interfere with its military objects. Verb. sap.

I am yours, etc. SMEATON
