Due to an error in the plotting software the B-bars in Figs. 3, 9 and 13 in the paper were not correctly displayed. The problem is only for displaying and does not affect the analysis and conclusions presented in the paper. In this erratum we show the corrected figures.

The length of the bars is proportional to PI with a lower limit of about $\sigma _{PI}=0.4$ mK $T_{\rm B}$. A polarized intensity of 1 mK $T_{\rm B}$ corresponds to a bar-length of 0.2 degree. Contours show total intensities with the same (positive) levels as in Fig. 1.

\end{figure} Figure 9: HII region G124.9+0.1: polarized intensity is gray-scale coded, H$\alpha $ intensity is shown by contours, and the orientation of the magnetic field in given by the direction of bars. The H$\alpha $ contours start at 8 Rayleigh and run in steps of 2 Rayleigh. The position of the B0 III star Hilt 102 is indicated.

\end{figure} Figure 13: The same as Fig. 9 but for the region encompassing the extended ojbects Sh 183, G124.0+1.4 and G122.7+1.5. The H$\alpha $ intensity contours start from 10 Rayleigh and run in steps of 3 Rayleigh. A B-type star located in the center of G124.0+1.4 is marked.
