p.3 Improvement of the St. Lawrence - a meeting held at Brockville to push for improvement; also a report of Committee established by the meeting.

Long Point Light House - We learn that this Light-House, for the erection of which a sum of money was appropriated by the Provincial Legislature, was finished on the 3d inst., and our correspondent informs us - " was lighted up on the evening of that day, much to the satisfaction of all who had an opportunity of viewing it. The light was brilliant and was observed throughout the whole night from the main shore; a distance of nearly 30 miles." - "A careful person, Mr. Price, has been selected to take charge of it, so that the public will have the benefit of a light house on Long Point henceforward."

We congratulate the country upon the completion of this very necessary and highly useful public undertaking. [York Courier]
