COREA, a kingdom of Asia, bounded on the N. by Chinese Tartary, on the E. by the sea of Japan, on the S. by a narrow sea, which separeates it from the Japanese islands, and on the W. by the Yellow Sea, which separates it from China. The W. coast is flanked by innmerable islands............................................Corea extends from N.to S. from the lat. of 34.30 to 42.30.N. and from E. to W. from 125. to 129. of E. long.

Dagelet island, and island about 9 miles in circumference, in the Japanese Sea, at about an equal distance from the Isle of Nippon and the coast of the Corea, in the lat. of 37.25.N. It was visited by La Perouse. It abounds with timber, which the Coreans are supposed to use in the building of boats.

The Seto Uchi was first navigated by H.M.S. Cruizer, in 1859, and it was passed throughout bythe allied fleet under Admiral Sir A.L.Kuper, in 1864.It contains upwards of 300 islands and rocks, with but few known dangers, and has a sea-board of nearly 700 miles, on which are situate numerous large towns and several of the provincial capitals. It abounds with safe and convenient anchorages. It communicates with the Pacific by the Kii Channel on the East, and by the Bungo Channel, between Kiusiu and Sikok, on the South; and with the Sea of Japan by the Strait of Simonoseki on the West.

Sea of Japan. There exists at present but little information regarding the navigation of the Sea of Japan. The winds there appear very available, and the currents, depending on special causes, are at times insignificant, whilst at others they run with great strength. The only thing known with certainty is, that the Japan Stream, as a rule (although with many variations of velocity, direction , and breadth, and much influenced by the wind), holds its way north-eastward from Korea Strait, and enters the Pacific by the Strait of Tsugar ; also that a stream is usually found in the autumn months setting to the E.S.E. through La Perouse Strait ; and in the summer along the coast of Manchuria to the S.W.

Sea of Japan;(P915/N1065)

The SEA of JAPAN, bounded on the East and South by the Japanese Archipelago, and on the West and N.W. by the coast of Korea and Russian Tartary, is about 900 miles long. N.N.E and S.S.W....,and 600 miles wide.East and West, at its broadest part. As far as is known, it is of rocks or dangers, with the following exceptions;
Liancourt Rocks were discovered by the French ship Liancourt, in 1849; they were also called Menalai and Olivutsa Rocks by Russian frigate Pallas, in 1854; and Hornets Islands by H.M.S Hornet, in 1855. Captain Forayth, of the letter vessel, gives their position as lat. 37'14N., long. 131"55 E., and describes them as two rocky islets, covered with guano, extending about 1 mile N.W. by W. and S.K by E., and apparently joined by a reef. The western islet, about 410ft, high, has a sugar-loaf form; the eastern is much lower, and flat-top ped.
MATSU SIMA, or Dagelet Island, is a collection of sharp conieal wooded hills, crowned by an imposing peak, 4000ft. high, is the centre, in lat. 37 30 N., long. 130 53'E. It is 18 miles in circumferences, and there are several detached high rocks along its ashores, some reaching an elevation of 400 to 500 ft. The shores are so steep that soundings could only be obtained by the Actaeon's boats, almost at the base of the cliffs. Landing may be effected in fine weather with difficulty. In spring and summer some Koreans reside here, and build junks; they also collect and dry large quantities of shell-fish.
Waywoda Rock is mid to have been discovered by the Russian corvette Waywoda. It appeared to be 12ft. high,. 70ft broad, and its approximate position is lat. 42 14 1/2N long 137 17E
