NAVIGATION. The general port charges and expenses to which vessels of 150 tons or more burden are subjected upon entering Santander are:

Pilotage, $9 50 in summer, $12 in winter; coasting pilots, 25 cents per mile; moving vessel in harbor, $1 50; custom-house dues, 124 cents per ton, dead weight, of cargo brought or taken by the ship; light dues, 5 cents per ton register; anchorage, 5 cents per ton register; health, 33 cents per ton register; permit to take ballast, 35 cents ; lighters of 5 tons sand ballast, $8.

No vessels from the United States arrived during the year ended September 30, 1863, and I cannot report any investment of American capital in this district. The establishment of an entire new trade in lumber by Norwegian houses within the last four or five years, suggests the question whether a similar trade might not be established here by American citizens.

year ended September 30, 1863.
