BOUT midway between Central America and Alaska, and

on a line drawn from the Sandwich Islands to Quebec (nearly equi-distant from either of those points), there is a notable break in the American coast-line of the Pacific. A deep and narrow strait cuts through the ironbound shore, and gives entrance to a spacious gulf, whose waters penetrate for many leagues into a rich and beautiful country, prolific in grain, wine, and gold, and blessed with a climate of wonderful serenity. The peninsula formed by this gulf on the east and the Pacific Ocean on the west is nearly forty miles long, with an average width

ATURAL BRIDGE, FARALLONE ISLANDS.
