BUT A delegation cf Western men aro
in Washington, urging upon Congress
tho noccssity of establishing a system of
buoy, light-houses nnd other signals
along our western rivers to point out tho
channel In d.tngrous localities. Millions
of dollars aro spent ovcry year on light-
housos &c., for tho bcnctlt of our foreign
commerce, whilo a vory small amount,
compitruttvelv, has been given for tho
benefit of tho commcrco of tho great
Mississippi and Ohio Valleys, although tho
latter has been proven to bo twlco as
valuable as tho former.
MkTITho Cincinnati Commercial of
Thursday last hns n very amblgtiouo ar
ticle In relation to n "sand bar at Smith
land, near Padttcah," for the removal of
which, by Congress, tho Comirrcfa says
thero is n petition circulating among
merchants and stcamboatmcn. As thero
Is no sand bar nt Smlthland it is probable
Ureters to tho dam at tho head of Cum
berland Island. If stcamboatmcn know
their best Interests thoy would not sign it,
but endeavor to havo the dam repaired,
as that will not only glvo nn outlet for
Cumborland rivor, but cut out two very
bad bars to good depth, and avoid a third.
