* With gold and gems if Chilian mountains"glow,
Ifbleak and barren Scotia's hills arise-

There plague and poison, lust and rapine, grow ;
Here peaceful are the vales, and pure the skies,
And freedom fires the soul, and sparkles in the eyes " BEATTI F.

MY LORD,

To you, who have devoted so many years in the ardent and successful pursuit of knowledge in distant regions, the treasures of which you areabout to pour into the lap of your country, I beg to have the honour of dedicating the follow.

1ng pages.

Although, in extent and variety of research, as well as in the acquirements, toil, and enterprise necessary for its success, your Lordship has rarely been equalled, you have not resembled those travellers, who, to a perfect acquaintance with the laws, customs, and manners of other countries,

unite an almost entire ignorance of their own.
