The island is about twelve acres in extent, and on a rocky pinnacle a hundred feet above the brine,. with not a drop of fLresh water to bel found, and where there is nothing to excite the CUpidity or cenm mercia instinct of man, the birds gulls, pelicans. herons, and cormorants by the thousandl-- :makle their homne. The island can be seen at a distance of ten miles, rising like a "cocked hat" out of the sapphire of the inland sea. 'Tie birds are utterly fearless. Pro. tected as they are by the laws of the State. they have had little cause to fear man: and his death-dea!ling weap ons. It is necessary to use the greatest care to avoid stepping on the nests and eggs of the tens of tlhoiusand of sea fowl that have establishtedl their rook cries on the islet.
