A town of considerable trade on the west side of Placentia Bay, district of Burin. It has perhaps the findest harbor in Newfoundland, with two entrances, one to the south-east and the other to the west. The harbor is divided into three arms, and a ferry plies across it. A packet boat runs once a fortnight to Little Placentia, distant about 50 miles, connecting with the over-land route from St. John's, 86 miles. It is a post town and port of entry. Distant from St. John's, by steamer once a fortnight, 162 miles, fare $6. Mail fortnightly. Population 1850.
