TRINIDAD Is an island lying to the eastward of Venezuela, between N. latitude 10° 3' and 10° 50' W. Jongitudes and 62° 4' of Greenwich. Its length is 65 miles on the southern and 53 miles on the northern side of the islas and its breadth, on the eastern and western sides respectively, 48 and 49 miles. It is separated from : continent of America by the Gulf of Paria, into which fall the northern mouths of the Orinoco. It was in discovered by Christopher Columbus, on the 31st July 1498, and first colonized in 1588 by the Spaniards. I. 1676 the French gained possession of it, but it was soon restored to Spain. On the 12th February 1797, a British expedition for the reduction of Trinidad sailed from Martinique

. the 14th it put into Carriacou, and sailed on the following morning with some additional transports. The Disa command of this expedition was entrusted to Rear-Admiral Henry Harvey. The troops, numbering 6,750 DE". were commanded by Sir Ralph Abercrombie.

The expeditiou resulted in the surrender of the island to His Majesty's arms, and on the 18th Febru? 1797, the articles of capitulation being signed by Abercrombie, Harvey, and Chacon.

[ocr errors]

Abercrombie, after making the best arrangements that the confused state of the colony allowed, departed two
lonths after, leaving his aide-de-camp, Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas Picton, as governor, whose first act was to
istitute a council of advice, consisting of five members.
On the 29th March, 1802, the definite treaty of peace between England and France, and her allies, viz. Spain
nd the Batavian Republic, was signed at Amiens. By the third article, all places taken during the war by
treat Britain, were restored save Trinidad, and Ceylon.
The area of the island is 1,751, square miles.
Port of Spain, the chief town and port of entry, according to the census of 1871, contains 23,561 inhabitants,
whom 11,065 are males, and 12,496 females.
The second town and port of entry is San Fernando, 26 miles south from port of Spain, with a population of
006 inhabitants. There are also the minor island towns of St. John, St. Joseph, Aronca, and Arima.
The harbour is the finest in the West Indies.
