    THE NORTH-WEST PASSAGE.
    The following interesting notice has been furnished by several whalers recently returned from Davis’s Straits: – Captain Hawkins,of the Everthorpe, reached 77, 25, N. and saw the land to the east and west, which he supposed to be islands; open sea to the northward ; no ice except bergs, which were aground ; fine warm weather, foggy at times; thinks the country more clear of ice than last year; the land, in the highest
    latitude appeared more fertile and bare of snow than in the lowest latitude.”
