The Lake Harbors.—The late disasters
on the Lakes,show the necessity of prosecu
ting the work of building and repairing har
bors there. The loss of property has lately
been very great, tossy nothing ot thedosa of
life The Buffalo Advertiser says:—
How much longer are hundreds of thous
andsto be annually appropriated for the pub
'.rc works on the sea coast, while the more
comparatively mere pittance that would
make the navigation of our lakes secure is
criminally withheld? Musi we wait unti
, each Atlantic city is graced with a mar*
| ble custom house costing its millions ot more;
before the general government deems it ne
cesAary to do anything for the security and pre
servation of the millions of property and thou
sands of lives annually exposed, and we might
almost say destroyed, on (he upper lakes?—
We of the West must make common cause in
thi« matter.
Extreme cases require extreme remedies,
and we trust,at the approaching session •>!
Congreas. the entire Western delegation wiil
as one man, rote down all appropriations for .
the seaboard, until partial justice is done, not :
alone to the West, but to the whole country— j
for the consumer at the East is as much inter- j
ested in tins matter as the producer of the j
West. Appropriations for Western harbours j
are eminently national in their characters.—
They should be asked, demanded as such, I
and any thing proposed to be given to a com - j
paratively local work, as a custom house, or
even the Delaware breakwater, should be re- !
silted until those demands for western works j
are complied with.
