Twenty miles N. E. by E. of Oswego, and N. of Mexico Bay, is Port Ontario on Salmon Creek, a place of no considerable importance, yet possessed of a good harbour, which is entered between piers running W. N. W. a considerable distance into the Lake.


The Lighthouse is on the N. pier end, is 52 feet high, having a fixed bright light.

The land both north and south of it is very low, and cannot be seen at any great distance; there is, however, good depth of water in every direction.

I have not been into this port, and have been unable to obtain reliable information as to the soundings inside the harbour.
