   APPENDIX. .
LAKE SURVEYS.
  The gentleman who has placed the following tables in our hands, is
a professional man, and is well acquainted with their value and impor-
tance. In speaking of them he says: 'The following positions are
taken from the British Admiralty charts. The surveys were made
under the direction of Capt. H. W. Bayfield, R. N. It is thought
they will be useful to the navigators of the lakes in showing bearings
and distances. There are no copies of the charts save this, I believe,
in the United States, and they can only be procured in England. The
information will be valuable to those engaged in the navigation of the
lakes, as there are no charts of them except those published by the
British Admiralty.
