though it is, for the most part, rocky and difficult
of cultivation. The Cohasset River flows through
a pag of the town into the harbor. In the south-
westerly part of the town, there is a fresh pond,
of 90 acres, abounding with pike, and other fish
common to fresh water. The Indian Pot, so
called, is considered quite a curiosity. It is sit-
uated near the base of a large mass of solid rock,
near what was once the sea-shore. Its cavity is
as round, smooth, and regular as a well-formed
seething pot, and will hold about 12 pailfuls. On
the same mass of rock is another excavation,
called the Indian Well. This is about 10 feet
deep, half of it circular and half semicircular.
The Cohasset Rocks, so disastrous to mariners, lie

mense extent of the hydraulic power created by
