2. London Docks. - These were the next undertaking of this sort set on foot in the Thames. They are situated in Wapping, and were principally intended for the reception of ships laden with wine, brandy, tobacco, and rice. The western dock covers space of above 20 acres ; and the new or eastern dock covers about 7 acres. The tobacco dock lies between the above, and exceeds 1 acre in extent, being destined solely for the reception of tobacco ships. The entire space included within the outer dock wall is 71 acres and 3 roods. The warehouses are capacious and magnificent. The great tobacco warehouse, on the north side of the tobacco dock, is the largest, finest, and most convenient building of its sort in the world. It is fitted to contain 24,000 hhds. of tobacco, and covers the immense space of near five acres! This warehouse is wholly under the management of the officers of customs. The vaults, under the tobacco and other warehouses, include an area the vast extent of about 184 acres, and, after allowing for gangways, &c., have stowage for 66,000 pipes of wine and spirits! These docks were opened in 1805. All ships bound for the Thames, laden with wine, brandy, tobacco, and rice (except ships from the East and West Indies), were obliged to unload in them for the space of 21 years : but this monopoly expired in January, 1826 ; and the use of the docks is now optional.

The entrances to the London Docks were formerly by the basins at Hermitage and Wapping. But a few years ago another entrance was completed from old Shadwell Dock, through what was formerly Milkyard, to the eastern dock. This new entrance is { of a mile lower down than Wapping entrance, and is a most material improvement.

The stock of the Company amounts to 3,238,3102 58. 10d. A considerable portion of this vast sum, and of a farther sum of 700,0001. borrowed, was required for the purchase of the houses, about 1,300 in number, that occupied the site of the docks. The present dividend is 4 per cent., and a 100. share of the Company's stock is at present (October 1843) worth about 961. 10s. The Board of directors consists of 25 members, of whom the Lord Mayor, as conservator of the river Thames, is one.

TONNAGE RATES ON VESSELS USING THE LONDON Docks. Vessels are not permitted to leave the dock until the tonnage dues and other expenses have been paid ; for which purpose the register must be produced at the superintendent's office, ir British, or a certificate of admeasurrment by the proper officer of the customs, if foreigu ; when a pass will be granted, which must be lodged with the dock master on leaving the dock.

4 Lodgment of Manifest. – Masters of ships are required to deliver at the superintendent's office, within 12 hours after the arrival of the vessel in the dock, or reporting at the Custom-house, (which shall first happen,) a true copy of the manifest or report of the cargo, signed by themselves.

Discharge of Vessels. – Vessels are not to break bulk, without the permission of the superintendent, until the whole of the cargo has been entered at the Custom-house..

Upon application of the master, the Company will pass a warehousing entry for such goods as the owners or consignces may have neglected or refused to enter within 48 hours ; and will also land goods not entered within 7 days; both periods to be computed from the date of the report,

Labourers or jumpers are not allowed to work on board vessels, on the quays, or in the warehouses, un. less engaged by the Company ; but may be hired of the Company, to work under the direction and responsibility of the master, the charge being 3s. Ed. per day for each man: and should not a sufficient number be employed for the timely discharge of the cargo, additional hands will be provided by the Company, at the expense of the vessel.

The decks are to be speedily cleared of such articles as may impede the discharge ; and the master, mate, or some person duly authorised by the owners, is to remain on board during the unloading.

Stops for Freight. - Goods landed will be detained for the freight, on due notice in writing, by the owni'r, master, or other person interested therein ; and will not be delivered, nor warrants granted for them, until orders shall have been given for the release of the goods, or the freight deposited with the Company ; nor can a stop be received after the goods have been transferred in the Company's books, or a warrant has been granted for them.

Goods delivered into craft to be landed elsewhere, cannot be detained for freight.

Vessels leaving the dock for repairs are not charged rent whilst absent ; nor is any charge made for ball.ust, chalk, or flints, received from or delivered into craft.

Water is supplied from the reservoir, and delivered into the ships' boats, at 18. per tun, on application to the dock master.

Abstracts of cargoes, for the purpose of making up freight accounts, will be supplied on application at the comptroller's office, at the following charge :

proceeding to these docks, arriving from N. and S. America, the West India Islands, the Cape of Good Hope, and all ports to the eastward thereof, upon application to the secretary, the superintendent, or the agent of the Company.

Regulations regarding Goods and the Rates and Charges thereon. Rent is charged on goods from the day on which the importing vessel breaks bulk. If goods be landed by a duty paid, a sight, or a warehousing entry, and taken away within 3 days, no rent is payable; but if they remain on the quay after that time, quay rent or watching is charged for such longer period.

Goods landed by Dock Order. - Before goods which have been landed hy the Company for want of entry, can be delivered or transferred, the bill of lading must be lodged at the warehouse, and the goods entered at the Custom-house: and such goods are subject to an additional charge for porterage.

Orders for transfer or delivery (the forms of which may be obtained at the comptroller's office), unless the goods are to be delivered from the landing scale, cannot be accepted until the goods bave been landed.

Neither can orders for transfer be received, until the charges due on the goods composing the whole of the entry have been paid ; goods landed under the consolidated rate, and wines and spirits, excepted.

Orders for delivery cannot be acted upon, unless signed by the party in whose name the goods stand in the Company's books, or by a person duly authorised to sign them : and should any interlineation, erasure, or alteration have been made in an order, it can only be accepted with the initials of the party set against such alteration.

Payment of Charges and Deposit Accounts. -- The only persons authorised to receive money are, the collectors at the superintendent's othce, and wine and spirit department; the deputy warehouse-keeper at the tobacco warehouse; the dock master (for water furnished to vessels in the dock); and the warehouse-keeper at the eastern dock; except for consolidated rates, which may be paid at the London Dock House, in New Bank Buildings.

Deposit accounts may be opened at the superintendent's office.

If the order does not specify the party by whom the charges due at the date of the order or transfer are to be paid, the

amount thereof will be placed to the deposit account of the party transferring. Warrants and Transfers.- Warrants for goods in general, are granted on written application at the dock, in favour of such person as the party in whose name they stand in the Company's books may direct. The first are issued free of charge ; on all subsequent warrants and transfers, the charges are as follow: For each warrant or transfer containing 8. d.

3. St. Katharine's Docks. — The Company for the construction of these docks was incorporated by the act 6 Geo. 4. c. 105. (local), ana chey were partially opened on the 25th of October, 1828. They are situated immediately below the Tower, and are consequently the inost contiguous of any to the city, the Custom-house, and other places where business is transacted. The capital raised by shares amounts to 1,352,7521. ; but an additional sum of 700,0001. has been borrowed, on the security of the rates, for the completion of the works, and the purchase of a freehold property possessing river frontage from the Tower to the corner of Lower East Smithfield, of the value of upwards of 100,0001, but not required for the immediate purpose of the act. A portion of this property has been appropriated as a steam packet wharf, where passengers embark and land without the aid or risk of boat conveyance. The purchase of the numerous houses that stood upon the ground occupied by the docks proved, as in the case of the London Docks, a heavy item of expense. The space included within the outer wall is about 24 acres, nearly 11 of which are water. There are 2 docks communicating by a basin. The lock leading from the river, is 180 feet long, and 45 broad; it is so constructed, that ships of upwards of 600 tons burden may pass in and out 3 hours before high water, so that outward-bound ships have the opportunity of reaching Blackwall before the tide begins to recede. Ships of upwards of 800 tons register are docked and undocked with. out difficulty, and the depth of water at the entrance exceeds that of any other wet dock in the port of London. Vessels are also docked and undocked by night as well as by day,--an

-- an advantage peculiar to this establishment. A clear channel of not less than 300 feet in width is at all times to be kept in the pool; and vessels drawing 18 feet water may lie afloat at low water at the principal buoy off the dock entrance. The warehouses and vaults are upon a very large scale ; far more so than one might be disposed to infer from the extent of water. The warehouses are exceedingly well contrived and commodious;

and, owing to their being built partly on pillars (within which what is called the quay work of the other docks is transacted), close to the water's edge, goods are hoisted direct from the hold of the vessel, without its being necessary, as in the West India and London Docks, to land them on quays; so that there is in this way a great saving both of room, time, and labour. The whole establishment is exceedingly complete, and reflects the greatest credit on the public spirit, enterprise, and skill, of those by whom it was projected and executed. The dividend on the company's stock is at present (1843) 5 per cent.

The regulations to be observed by vessels using the St. Katharine's Docks are similar to those enforced in the East and West India Docks; to which, as in the case of the London Docks, we beg to refer. Table of Tonnage Rates chargeable on Vessels entering the St. Katharine Docks, and also of the Rates for discharging Cargoes landed by the Company, subject to such Revision, from Time to Time, as shall be found expedient.
