The early part of the history is almost entirely taken from Mr.

It would have been easy for me to have referred to the Southey. In Mexico, in Peru, in Chili, the conquerors encountered a people civilised and humane; acquainted with many of the arts of polished life agriculturists and mechanics knowing in the things belonging to the altar and the throne, and waging war for conquest and for glory. But the savages of Brazil were hunters and cannibals they wandered, and they made war for food few of the tribes knew even the cultivation of the mandioc, and fewer still had adopted any kind of covering, save paint and feathers for ornament.

The slave hunting, which had been on the first occupation of the land, and more especially systematic after the discovery of the mines, had diminished the wretched Indians, so that the introduction of the hardier Africans was deemed and if here and necessary they now people the Brazilian fields Indian aldea is there an to be found, the people are wretched, with less than Negro comforts, and much less than Negro spirit or inHence, while the original Mexicans and Peruvians form a dustry.

These jealousies have taken place, and though they did not arise principally out of the causes of the emigration and return of the Royal family, they were at least quickened and accelerated by them. He and his brothers were in search of new countries, and after touching at the Cape de Verd Islands, he steered to the south-west, till he came to the coast of Brazil, near Cape St.

He carried home some valuable drugs, precious stones, and Brazil wood but had lost two of his three ships on the voyage.. He made no settlement, but had claimed the country for Spain. Meantime Pedro Alvarez Cabral was appointed by Emanuel, of to the command of a destined to follow King Portugal, large fleet, the course of Vasco de Gama in the east.

Friday of the year Cabral dispatched a small vessel to Lisbon to announce his discovery, and then, without making any settlement, proceeded to India. On the arrival of the news in Europe, the King of Portugal invited Amerigo Vespucci from Seville, and sent him with three ships to After a long and distressing voyage they explore the country.

But as Brazil, as it now began to be called, did not promise that ample supply of gold which the Spaniards had discovered in their new countries, and which the Portuguese gained with less hazard from Africa, and fi'om the East, the country ceased for a time to excite the attention of government, and the first actual settlements This cannot be Bahia; for they say, that after coasting leagues they were in I8"S.

That extraordinary but unfortunate man was the first European whose eyes rested on the broad Pacifie. He had heard from the Indians of its existence, and resolutely set out to discover it, well aware of the dangers and difficulties he had to encounter. After twenty-five days of suffering and fatigue, he saw the South Sea he heard ofPeru, its mines, and its Hamas, its cities and its aqueducts, and he received pearis from the islands that lay in front of St. Miguel's where he walked sword in hand up to his middle into the water bay, and took possession for the King of Spain.

No one in Europe now doubted that the western way to the East Indies was discovered. Great hopes were therefore entertained from the expedition of Solis.

That able navigator made the coast of Brazil far to the southward of Cape St. The ships then put back to St. Augustines, loaded with Brazil wood, and returned to Spain. But the King Don Emanuel claimed these cargoes, and again remonstrated against the interference of Spain so enectually, that three years afterwards, when Magelhaens touched at BIo de Janeiro, he purchased nothing but provisions.

Meantime several French adventurers had corne to Brazil, and had taken in their cargoes of Brazil wood, monkies and parrots, and sometimes plundered some of the weaker Portuguese traders. Antonio da Barre. Caramuru, however, was not permitted to go to Portugal but by means of a young Portuguese student at Paris he communicated his situation to the King Joam III. Shortly afterwards, Caramuru returned to Bahia, having agreed to freight two ships with Brazil wood as the price of his passage, ofthe artillery of the ships, and of the articles necessary for trading with the natives.

Still, however, as Brazil furnished neither gold, nor that rich commerce which the Portuguese derived from their Indian trade, it was pretty much left to itself for the first thirty years after its and then the discovery regulations adopted by the court were not, the most perhaps, The coast was advantageous for the country. Souza was probably deterred from fixing on the shores of that beautiful bay, by the number and fierceness of the Indian tribes that occupied them. Martim Affonso de Souza was no ordinary man his cares for his colony did not relax even after he had been recalled, and sent as governor-general to India, where he had before highly distinguished himself He introduced the sugar-cane from Madeira into his colony, and in it also the first cattle were bred.

About the same time the Fidalgo Pedro de Goes attempted a settlement at Paraiba do Sul but after two years tolerable prosperity, he was attacked by the native tribe of Goaytacazes, and five years of warfare reduced him to the necessity of sending to Espirito Santo for vessels to remove his colonists. Vasco Fernandez de Coutinho began to settle Espirito Santo in the same year in which the former colonies had been begun.

The adventurers had a prosperous voyage. On their arrival they built a fort, which they Coutinho called N.

He had afterwards perished in an attempt to make a settlement on its shores, and nearly the same fate had attended Luiz de Mello da Silva, who made a similar attempt on the part of Portugal. Cabeza de Vacca had also made his adventurous overiand from St. Catherine's, and after settling himself in the governjourney ment of Assumption, had conducted various expeditions of discovery, always in hopes of finding an easy way to the gold countries. In one of these he found traces ofthe adventurer Garcia, a Portuguese, who, under the orders of Martim Affonso de Souza, had, with five companions, undertaken to explore the interior of South America.

His see was fixed at St. Salvador's, or, as it is generally called, Bahia. In J, the first school was established in Brazil, by Nobrega, in the high plains of Piratininga, about thirteen leagues from the of San Vicente.

Meantime an adventurer of no ordinary stamp, had formed a settlement in the finest harbour of Brazil, namely, that of Rio de Janeiro. In , he had been employed by Mary of Guise, at the entreaty of the French court, to convey her daughter the young Queen of Scots to France in he was engaged in the defence of Malta, against the Pacha Sinan and the famous Dragut Reis, and two years afterwards published an account of that campaign.

In , Estacio de Sa, nephew of Mem, was sent out n-om Portugal to form a settlement in Rio, but finding his means inadequate to contend with the Indians, led on by the few remaining French, he went to San Vincente for reinforcements these, however, only enabled him to keep up the war, and to maintain himself in a post he had fortified not far from the entrance of the harbour, and near the Sugar-loaf mountain, a bare and inaccessible rock, which, from a base of about four hundred feet, shoots up to a thousand in perpendicular height, on the west side of the bar. He therefore applied to his uncle for succour, who, collecting what force he could, led them in person, and arrived in the harbour on the 18th of January, On the 20th, St.

Mem de Sa now founded the city of St. Sebastian, more commonly called the city of Rio and for its security the Jesuits, with their Indians, fortifi'ed both sides of the entrance to the harbour, which is about four miles distant from the city across the bay.
