From the highesliiualiun in nbjoj) the proceedings of the Mendicily Society are held, from the prompt and effectual relief it is calculated lo aO'ord to real distress, and from the extensive means it possesses to delect and punish imposition, the Managers trust that uolhing further need be urged lo inducBt.ihe Public to conlrihute liberally towards its support, especially at a period of the year when the claimants on its bounty may be expected rapidly to augment, Subsrriplions received by VV.

There are limes when boats cm enter or leave Sunday River ; but rrpm its tiiouiii cointi.'wices that wild inhospitable coast, that ^t^'u.^es sllidter to any (?las9 of shipping. . " The island of St. Croix, in M. ,'53. -17. 30. S, long. 25.36. 50.

O'it' the nrouth of the Ruga, S. 2-3ds nf a-mile:, is tlie island of Jahlel, about the same size as Brentou's isle. Itouiid these islands there is good ^nehoiuge ; and, tii the event of necessily, a ship might iinii partial shelter near St. Croix, 'i'iitse islands are liiiiabiied by immense luiinbers of seals, which at limes literally cover their surface, " The coast," rrnm the moulh of the Sunday River, runs to the euslwanl towards the' Bo-jc?-iiiaii's River. The month of this river I dul nut examine; from reporls'l receivtti, it did not iijipe^r to merit attention. \. from the Bosjesmau's River, the co'dst continues the sameness of uppearaiae, sand-hills covered with bush. " The Bird Islands are alone visible along the whole line of coast. " The months of the KarPga nud K-isowka were neaTly closed, a v,euk-stream alone ruiiiiiiig over a bed of hght saiul. ' The iviii'er torrents, no (b,^ibt, will at times nB the beds of these rivers to a great extent. . Further eastward is the Kowic, a river that promises fairer' than any i have visited (ex-ceot the Zwartkops) at some (uttiie lime toHdmit ships over lis bar. 'Like'all the-other rivers 1 have visited, it receives its inland stream into atfexten-aive Siiiidy buiin, from which it forces iis way throut^h a narrow channel on ils eastern sitlc, into the sea, not wider at low water than twenty yuids ; this stream runs iii a S.S. E, direcUgii ; the surf broke across a bar about a quaitrr ofa tnile from the entrance, but not violent, and at a low tide there must have been several feet of water. What leads me to expect uiore from this' river than the others I have visited, is that tlie water atipears deep.close to the shore, and there are two extensive beds of ruck, which bore by compass S. E. by S. from the river's mouth about two miles and a hall. If there is anchorage iiiider those rocks, ships might perluijis be able to wait the- convenience 0? tide before I hey attempted to enter the river. " The next appearance of a riv.gr to the eastward is the Kleine iVloiideii, which has, upp'-arently at thues, three outleis tt> the sea ;. but they were all closed when I saw llieai, and I suspect are only at spring tides, or wjieu the mountain waters cume down. ^ From the Kowie to the Great Fish-River's niouth, the coast'has a more verd-mt apnearance, the sand hills are,covered with luxuriant bush ; hut tliere is not"an ijilet or curve of any sort that offers s!.reai!i, and for several months in the year, I imuh whether the strength of water would turn -a l.'iil. I think tlte water is sufFiciently deep (> admit ship! to anchor ofl' the river's tnoiiili. As the tide n.se the surf increased, f>nt at dead r "^-^^ � water there ^^uust have been -(rvenfl feet on tin: bur. iVot the least nppearniire of --liifiiiTg sfnd or n-ck* wr-re observc l! tlie.

" The country itt the month of the Fish River is open, inters-persed with picturesque ravines, generally clothed with bush; when I arrived, the "vh-ter was at the lowest ebb. From the S.W. side a sund-bank projects to wiliiui twenty yards of the | A'.fi. side. .The current was running through this i cli'jiiDel slowly into the sea, and I ci^uld trace its slpcam grudually.decreasitig ill breadth, until finished in u point, making the mouth of the river form the base of an ecjuilalerai tri.iiigle; from this point part of the ebb is thrown back on ihc flat beach, runs to the westward, and finds an niiilei close lo the rocks, oa the western side; at this spot the water appears deep. Al the breadth of ten yards the sea did not break successivelv, 1)Ut �t times these was an interval of live miunles, when a h. at could easily have layded ; but when it did break, it was with treble the-.vioieuce of ttie coust-.inl rolling surf along the siiul before the river's month.- The entrance of the rivsr E.S.E. nnd W.tN.\\''., the stream inclines a little to the S.VY. afitr p.nss-ing tiie extreme point where the sea broke with violence across. " The position of the Fish River may be easily aBceriuiiied al sea, iu a tine day, by some distant hiUs of a.fi ijirdnlaling form, bearing N.N.W. jfer compass ; ih.ese bills are then bctwctu the ravines through which the riter flows.
