A NEST OF ANCHORS. - the Quebec Herald says that an accumulation of anchors and chains has been in progress at one point in that harbor, for several years. It had got to be known as a "nest," of such vessel equipments. Every now and than some vessel would get her anchor entangled and be compelled to let it go. So many have been lost that it is estimated from thorough examination that at least 150 tons of such material had been lodged at that locality. It was found to impossible to recover separately the anchors as they had become so entangled with one another. Latterly the project has been considered of raising and removing the whole mass, and labors to that effect have been commenced. It is believed that at no distant day the effort will be successful, the loss of many years of such material will be regained.
