Wines, lace, tulle, Parisian goods, glass, porcelain, metal goods, grain, sugar, jute, iron, ore, hay straw, &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 leading from Calais to Saint Pierre, extend to the old works on the W. side of the town. Width of entrance at pier head, 430ft. The tidal harb. has an area of 18 acres and a minimum depth of 14ft 11ins LWST., and 29ft 6in HWST. The W. side of the tidal basin is used for merchant

vessels. There are magnificent quays and warehouses. There is a careening gridiron in the harb. for vessels up to 500 tons. The tidai basin to the eastward measures in breadth 558ft, its north quay has a length of 1,800ft, with an uniform depth of 14ft 11in at low water spring tides, and its south quay has a length of 820ft, with a depth of 46ft 8in at spring tides and 4ft 8in at neaps; at LWST. it is 26ft 3in, when vessels cannot dock. A shed of 525ft in length by 130ft in breadth is 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 3in. A new entrance to the western dock is in course of construction; the lock will be 55ft 10in wide and the sluice 130ft 11in long, with a depth on sill of 29ft 5in HWOST. and 25ft 2in ON T. the western tidal basin and dock being dredged accordingly. Depth of water on lock sills, 28ft 8in at ordinary spring tides, and 24ft 5in at neaps. Under these conditions, any vessel with a less dft than 26ft 3in can enter the dock at once at spring tides, or, if arriving at neap tides, can berth at the deep water quay of the tidal basin and commence discharging forthwith, entering dock in due course. There are extensive sheds along the quays of this dock, and 10 hydraulic cranes of 1 tons each, 2 of 5 tons, 1 of 10 and 1 of 40 tons, and hydraul c jiggers for use of vessels. A dry dock, 500ft in length, exists at the end of this floating dock, capable of accommodating vessels of the largest size. 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. A revolving bridge will be built to afford direct access to the sea front and casino. The lock and bridge will be worked by hydraulic power. The exceptional position of the old dock, more especially at its extreme end, renders it eminently suitable for dangerous cargoes. Special facilities for the discharge of petroleum in bulk at the rate of 230 tons an hour. 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 HW.: Pier-head: 37ft 9in ST.; 33ft 5in NT. Carnot dock and dry dock sills: 28ft 8in ST.; 24ft 5in NT. North quay, Eastern tidal basin: 37ft 9in ST.; 23ft 5in NT. South quay, Eastern tidal basin 46ft 8in ST.; 41ft 8in NT. LW.-North quay, Eastern tidal basin: 14ft 11in ST.; 18ft 9in NT. South quay, Eastern tidal basin 26ft 3in ST.; 29ft 6in NT. There are no sandbanks or rocks outside Calais harb., and the depths of water are greater than at pier-head. Hydraulic travelling cranes: 4 jiggers of 15 cwt. power, 10 cranes 30 cwt., two cranes 50 cwt., two cranes 5 tons; one each of 10, 20, 30, and 40 tons; 3 fixed hand cranes of 10 tons and 30 cwt. respectively. Charges. The total inclusive charges on vessels entering and leaving are as follows upon each ton of freight, with a cargo only one way: Coasting steamers with coals, 1/7 per ton d. w.; with pig-iron, 1/4 per ton d.w. Vessels from Black Sea and European ports with grain, 1/ per ton of wheat, other grain in proportion; with timber, 1/10 per ton. Oversea trading vessels laden with wheat, 1/6 per ton cargo, other grain in proportion;
