A CHART OF CARNARVON BAR AND > HARBOUR. Directions for Ships and Vessels sailing into Car- narcon Harbour, over the liar. In order to facilitate the navigation of this Har- bour, two Buoys are placed on the Bar, the outer one is painted black, and the inner red; a Percll is also erected on the Bank, called the Muscle Bank. Llandowyn Point lies about 2 miles distance from the black Buoy, (which is moored in I he en- traftce of the Bar, in about 15 feet water, at low water, average spring tides) in a N. by E. direc- tion. DIN AS Dinlle lies from three, or from thafi to three and a half miles distance from the black; Buoy, in a S. E. direction. The black Buoy lies about one mile distance from the red Buoy, in a S. W. by S. direction. The red Buoy lies about tw-o, or from that to two and a quarter tniles distance from the Perch, in a W. by N. direction. The Perch lies near one mile distance from Abermenai, in a west direc- tion, where ships andvesseis may anchor in safety. Masters of vessels, drawing 12 feet water and upwards, should not (in a gale of wind) approach this Bar until four hours flood. All vessels coming in, should leave the Perch on the larboard hand. High water at full and change, at a quarter af~ ter nine o'clock—average spring tides rise and fall on the Bar from 16 to 18 feet—neap ditto from 6 to 8 feet. Expert Pilots may always be had on making the proper signal.

(of the best quality) and other articles, to most parts of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and consists of convenient quays and wharfs, for the reception and safety of ships and vessels loading and unloading, or lying within the limits of this port. The Trustees of this Harbour have expended from four to five hundred pounds in blasting some of the rocks at the Swillies, to low water mark, which has rendered a most free passage for ships and vessels of large burthen, coming from the eastward to this Harbour, or sailing through the Straits of Menai.
