the IiAY of fundy Tho Bay of Fundy, the scene of tho wrcck of tho "Cobequid," Is full of strange and contradictory features (says '"tflio "Westminster Gazette"). Grand Meanan Island, which lies to the port hand of a vessel entering the bay, is ono rocky graveyard—on the reef to the south-east an impaled ship is a common sight.
