Thu adverto reports lately circulated
concerning the condition ol tho jetties

tliat there' was no channel on South Paes

tliat there is but a twelve foot channel on

theio Is seventeen feet or water there at

not continue until twenty feet or more ol
water Is obtained, Willi tlu-se facts be

In small pieces, whlcli are af

firmness and solidity ol the texture are
remarkable, and horse hair Is often in

strength. Although tho woikwanshlp

beauty, thu designs in the older sped

This circumstance gave a maikcil advan
