fter removing the entire stern of the craft, for inher construction this part had been secured by screw bolts for thisexpress purpose, and while submerged the steamer was floated withinand secured by ballast and freight tightly packing the entire hold of thebarque. Then the Fanny was raised, her stern once more secured, herhold freed from water, her masts stepped, two of them passing directlythrough the steamer, her rigging and sails supplied, and out of Passama-quoddy she sailed round The Horn to San Francisco. Arrived there, the same process was carried out for the removal of thesteamer, which, reconstructed, sailed for years the Sacramento river, thefirst river steamer in California waters. No part of the steamer was removed when she was engulfed withinthe barque, save her funnel and walking-beam. She furnished accom-modations for the passengers taken out in this way, and possibly someforty-niners of the Pacific coast may yet remain of those who made thevoyage in this novel manner.

SEA COAST RESORTS. 2f EASTPORT, MAINE. Eastport, prominent upon the school maps as the extreme easternsettlement under the American flag, prominent in history of old-timeboundary disputes, and the home of the American sardine, is situatedupon Moose Island, at the entrance of Passamaquoddy Bay, separatedby a wooden bridge twelve hundred feet in length from the mainlandtown of Perry. It is a town of white wooden buildings, a big hotel flying the Americanflag, an exceedingly peaceful-looking arsenal, a fort and a United StatesCoaling Station. Along its water front the many wharves are occupied by numerousfactories, where minute herring are cooked in salad oil, packed in cansexactly resembling the conventional sardine box, and placed on the-market, a close imitation of the imported article, whose market pricethey have greatly cheapened. Fourteen of these sardine factories lie-within the radius of a circle drawn one-half mile from the post-office.They simply line the water front. Previous
