.y I (?rir-"----acg- CIIINCIIA ISLANDS, PERU, The Chinchas are three small isles, neither of them more than a mile across, and about the same dis tance apart, lying in a line north and south 1-1 miles from the rnafn land and adout 00 miles from Callao. They consist of volcanic rock, upheaved from the sea; and except a few narrov? beaches, their side3 are nak ed precipices, jagged and indented with caves, and surrounded here and there with rocky masses. All of them are covered with nothing but guano, wich lies upon the rock just as if it had been sifted upon it till it had formed rounded hills. The rocks are from 200 to 300 feet high around the shores, and the guano is heaped upon them highest in the middle, where it may be 200 feet through. On the JNortli Island is the principal station.

OOXVXXff EH CX AXi. WEDNESDAY JULY 3, 1S5C. We have noticed no transactions of any importance during the p&st week. Two arrivals from foreign ports have occurred In that time. Schooner Alice, from Yancouvcrs Island, with shingles, and bark Frances Palmer, from San Francisco, in ballast. No surer indication of the state of trade exist than the Imports and exports hence to San Francisco. No freight is of fering now to speak of, and we regret that our fine packets have to run in ballast. However, our merchants, during these dull months cannot boast.of keeping in more than ballast trim. The fall trade will begin early this season we think, a3 a con siderable portion of the whaling fleet are cruising on the Kodi . ack ground, from which they generally return a uonth earlier thanth Ochotsk fleet. From the Kodlack we shall probably have arrivals within six weeks. Our list of whalers in the North Itxific show, that as large a fleet as usual may be expected here this fall, but the busine...
