conformity with that statement, and I accordingly pronounce against the steamer."

Dec. 17, In the case of the Linda, the Court expressed its

opinion that there was not a sufficient light shown in time by those on board the other vessel.

is?713' In ^e case of *^e Ceres and Harmony ', the Court ex

pressed its opinion that considering the manner in which these vessels were proceeding, and that only the red light of the steamer was first visible to the Harmony, they would have gone clear if they had kept their courses, and therefore that the Act of Parliament enjoining the showing of a light on approaching another vessel was not applicable in the first instance, although it became so when the green light became visible, and that the Harmony, having then exhibited a light, was free from blame.

Fog- With Reference To Fog Signals, they are now for

the first time introduced into the Regulations, and their use enjoined upon all vessels under weigh. In the case of steamers under steam, a steam-whistle, placed at not less than eight feet from the deck, is to be sounded every five minutes. At other times these vessels, and all sailing vessels are to use, when on the starboard tack, a fog-horn, and if on the port tack, to ring a bell, at least once every five minutes. Look out. It May In Conclusion be observed that it has been clearly proved in evidence that the number of collisions is chiefly attributable to the neglect of a good look-out', and that this circumstance is one to which particular attention is paid by the Court in the examination of every case.

Thus in the case of La Plata, in which a collision 1 p. 117. - P. 77.

took place between that vessel, a steamer of 428 tons, Dec. 15, and the brig Helene, of 190 tons, and which was appealed to the Judicial Committee, that Court observed, that if a good look-out had been kept, those on board the Helene must have seen so large a ship as La Plata, and might have avoided the collision.

And again in that of the Pembroke, the Court observed, that if there had been a good look-out kept on board the Pembroke, and prompt and decided measures had been adopted, there would have been no collision.

And similarly, the Court expressed its opinion that the collision was solely attributable to the want of a good look-out in the cases of the Argo, p. 31, and Louise, p. 44. Strong observations on the neglect of this important duty were also made in those of the Telegraph, p. 38, Vivid, p. 49, and Ericson, p. 68.
