vo remarkable instances of the bold
Iiirit characteristic of Hi itons, and which
o likely to make a very favourable im

company of merchants setted at Arica

nver-failing stream from the highest Cor
illcras. For this purpose they have cut
iroiigh a ridge exceeding 1 1 ,000 feet in
I'iijht, and diverted across it a stream
rijjinating in the glaciers. Though this
il)lc work is not yet completed, there is
i) reason to doubt of its success and its im

. hjhly estimated. The other instance of

leas, has never been hitherto navigated

a productive soil and considerable pop
ation. Situated as it is within the moun
in, '21,000 feet above the sea, and at a
stance from any forests, the construction
a substantial vessel on its shores could
1 irdly have been thought of. An English
f an, nevertheless, who had once been a
uckyard carpenter, set all diiiicultics at
i fiancc. He shaped the timbers in a
irest seven leagues oft", put them logcth-
on the shores of the lake, launched,

' iration of the inhabitants, Spaniards, as
1 ell as Indians, a handsome schooner of

was white as the driven snow, she attributed
their mirth to mauvahe honle, and pluming
