Sandwich Bay is a deep landlocked basin, about 20 miles long by 10 broad, communicating with the sea by two narrow channels, on the Eastern of which stands Cartwright. The scenery around the shores of this fine basin would well repay any visitor—mountains, forest, rivers, and waterfalls are all worth going to see. Eagle River is the largest of the four considerable streams which empty their waters into this Bay. About two miles from its mouth is the Eagle River Fishery belonging to Messrs. Hunt, where the salmon caught by different fishermen, at their different " salmon posts," is cleaned and packed in tins ready for shipment.
