The chief point of excellence ertelning to the bridge is the moans adopted for sup' | wrtiog it, which consist of wire trasses, about two nchee in circumference, Interlacing one another as they s un. When placed perpendicularly along the bottom that c legree of strength cannot be arrived at which the inter- a seed trusses guarantee. 1 A trial of the bridge was made in the harbor ef Annepo- < Is before the sailing of the fleet rrom that point, and re- l lulled in the-most satisfactory manner. ] In addition to the pontoon bridge# there are alto 1 i number of flat bottomed and very buoyant seows, >r rather a* lift, accompanying the expedition, Inended for the purpooe of eaeiating in tho crossing of mall rivers, creeks and shallow streams.
