Wines, silks, Parisian goods, machinery, &c. Accn. The new docks were opened in June, 1889, by the President-the works occupying a space of over 400 acres. The tidal harb. entrance has been formed to the left of the old harb., and the floating docks lead out of the tidal harbours, and, passing by canals under the bridge leiding from Calais to Saint Pierre, extend to the old works on the W. side of the town. The tidal harb. has an area of 18 acres and . a minimum depth of 13ft LWST., and 29st HWST. The W. side of the tidal basin is used for merchant vessels. There are magnificent quays and warehouses. The works will be completed in about two years.

There is a careening slip in the harb, for vessels up to 500 tons. The tidal basin to the eastward measures in breadth 558ft, its north quay has a length of 1,8ooft, with an uniform depth of 13ft 2in at low water spring tides, and its south quay has a length of 820ft, with a depth of 26ft zin at low water spring tides. Sheds of 525st in length by 13oft in breadth are erected along the south quay, which is also furnished with travelling hydraulic cranes The tidal basin to westward also offers to commerce extensive ground space, on the quays of which merchandise, such as coal, pig iron, timber, &c., can be stored free of charge for a considerable time. There are two floating docks--that to the east communicates with the tidal basin by two locks, 68ft 4in and 46ft 2in broad respectively, and with a length between gates 451ft zin. Depth of water on lock sills, 28ft 8in at ordinary spring tides, and 24st 5in at neaps. Under these conditions, any vessel with a less dst than 26ft zin can enter the dock at spring tides, or, if arriving at neap tides, can berth at the deep water quay of the tidal basin, and commence discharging forth with, entering dock in due course. There are extensive sheds along the quays of this dock, and 10 hydraulic cranes of i} tons each, 2 of 5 tons, and hydraulc jiggers for use of vessels. A dry dock, 5ooft lo length, exists at the end of this floating dock, capable of accommodating vessels of the largest size. The level of the western Aoating dock sill is placed too high for vessels of deep dft, but it is intended to construct a new dock entrance so as to admit vessels drawing 20ft at all tides. Between the east and west docks a very extensive canal dock exists, which communicates, by means of the Calais canal, with all the internal navigation of the continent. Since the construction of the elevator to Fontinettes, near St. Omer, the largest sized canal

boats of 400 tons can now reach Calais. Depths at high water :Pier-head: Spring tides 34ft ; neap tides 3oft. Dock gates on lock sills : Springtides 29ft 2in; neap tides 25ft rin. South quay of tidal basin : Spring tides 46ft 5in; neap tides 42ft 4in. Same quay at low water: Spring tides 25ft zin; neap tides 3oft 2in.
