T. SUFFIELD AND

AND CO.

Call the particular attention of SHIP-OWNERS, SHIP-BUILDERS, AND COMMANDERS OF STEAM AND SAILING VESSELS,

to the Simple and Efficient Arrangements of their PATENT PUMPS AND FIRE-ENGINES,

Both Fixed and Portable, with PATENT VALVES and other Improvements. These Pumps are free from that liability to choke which is common to other Pumps, and their Working Parts are not susceptible of derangement either from wear or from being long out of use. They pass entirely through them, with easo, any substance that may enter the Suction Pipes. The Novelties in these Pumps are their adaptation to the varied duties of Ships' Pumps ; the facilities they afford for Cleansing the Suction Pipes, and for Sounding or Examining the Valves ; the readiness with which

they may be used for Ventilating the Bilge, or for acting as a Syphon either for Watering the Ship, or for extinguishing Accidental Fires on board : the rapidity with which they can be converted into Fire Pumps, or be applied to the Washing of Decks; and their capability of Pumping from Several Compartments. Also, to their

MARINE ENGINE-ROOM TELEGRAPHS,
Which excelled all others in the recent series of Trials in Her Majesty's Navy at Sheerness. These invaluable instruments have been supplied and sent
