One member of the firm was the ostensible owner, and the Japan was registered in his name as a British vessel, and remained so for three months, though engaged during this time in active hostilities against the United States. Another member of the firm shipped the crew, and took charge of a small steamer which cleared about the same time from Newhaven, with a cargo of guns and ammunition. The two vessels met off the coast of France, the cargo was transferred, the officers proceeded on board, and the Confederate cruiser Georgia, though still registered as the British steamer Japan, started on her cruise. Her career extended over a year, during which she cruised in the Atlantic under Lieutenant William L. Maury. During her cruise she captured only eight vessels, her movements being restricted by her want of sail-power and her limited co

What I would propose to you as a means of seeing all the collections of England, and gaining at the same time additional subscriptions for your work, is, that you should come to England and attend the British Association for the Advancement of Science in September next. There you will meet all the naturalists of England, and I do not doubt that among them you will find a good many subscribers. You will likewise see a new mine of fossil fishes in the clayey schist of the coal formation at Newhaven, on the banks of the Forth, near Edinburgh. You can also make arrangements to visit the museums of York, Whitby, Scarborough, and Leeds, as well as the museum of Sir Philip Egerton, on your way to and from Edinburgh. You may, likewise, visit the museums of London, Cambridge, and Oxford; everywhere there are fossil fishes; and traveling by coach in England is so rapid, easy, and cheap, that in six weeks or less you can accomplish all that I have proposed. As I seriously hope that you will
oorn, Cornelis Jacobsen May, to extend the discoveries of Hudson as well as to trade with the natives. The Tiger was accidentally burned near the island of Manhattan; but Adriaen Block, building a Chap. XV.} 1614. yacht of sixteen tons burden, which he named the Unrest, plied forth to explore the vicinity. First of European navigators he steered through Hell Gate, passed the archipelago near Norwalk, and discovered the river of Red Hills, which we call the Housatonic. From the bay of Newhaven he turned to the east, and ascended the beautiful river which he named the Freshwater, but which, to this hour, keeps its Indian name of Connecticut. Near the site of Wethersfield he came upon one Indian tribe; just above Hartford, upon another; and he heard tales of the Horicans, who dwelt in the west, and moved over lakes in bark canoes. The Pequods he found on the banks of their river. At Montauk Point, then occupied by a savage nation, he reached the ocean, proving the land east of t

The two vessels ran in and anchored in the creek, where the transshipment of the goods between the two vessels took place during two nights.
