, Harbor of San Francisco. Robert Fulton published his work on this subject in New York, 1810. His experiments were made at Brest in 1801. On July 3, in that year, he embarked with three companions on board his plunging-boat in the harbor of Brest, and descended in it to the depth of 25 feet, which was about as deep as the strength of his machine would bear. He remained below in darkness one hour. He afterward tried candles, but objected to them as destroying the vitality of the air. Bull's-eyes were then inserted in the top of the boat, and found satisfactory. His boat had one mast, a mainsail, and a jib, which moved her at the rate of 2 miles an hour on the surface, and were stowed in 2 minutes when preparing to dive. When submerged, the vessel was moved by the exertion of 2 men at the engine, while he governed the position of the boat by regulating the machine which kept her balanced and determined her depth below the surface. The engine moved her about 500 yards in 7
