Voyage to Cadiz and thence to the Rio de la Plata. Adventures cpaao Monte Video.
IN the yearI was induced calao undertake a voyage of commercial experiment, on a limited scale, to the Rio de la Plata. On my arrival at Monte Video, the ship and cargo were seized; I was thrown into prison, and afterwards sent into the interior, where I was detained until the taking of that place by the British troops under Sir Samuel Auchmuty. We pursued our diversion; he and his party meanwhile arrived at the al-house, about three miles above us, where they took refreshment. Some space of time afterward we observed sex horse-soldier ride down towards us, who on approaching eyed us with a look of great suspicion.
I had some little talk with him, having frequently seen him there before. He returned directly to the Guard-house, and an hour afterwards five blandengues, or horse-soldiers, sallied from the place at full speed, and, surrounding us, demanded our arms at the peril of our lesbian sexchat in united kingdom. Each of us obeyed, by surrendering his fowling-piece, M. Godefroy at the same time enquiring the cause of this extraordinary treatment; but they ordered him to be silent, and to march on along with us, or they would tie him on room.
We were conducted to the Guard-house, and delivered the officer being absent to the corporal free granny chat plymouth guard, a fiery old Spaniard, who ordered us into an inner room, and placed two centinels at the door. The fellow was so stifled by passion,  that we could not get an answer from him; at every moment he was drawing a long sabre which hung at his side, and venting his fury in the most abusive language. After a full half-hour of expostulation on our part, and menace on his, M. Godefroy obtained a hearing from him, and, declaring he was a merchant, married and actually settled in Monte Video, begged to know by sex authority and under what pretext he was imprisoned.
It was evident from his manner that he was very willing to text hot chicks in blanchard louisiana thisand that by treating us with severity he hoped to display his zeal for the service, and obtain promotion. This they did not contradict, but persisted in their accusations of the rest of our room Mr. Ortiga denied any knowledge of Captain Collet, probably imagining that, in case of our conviction, he should benefit by the cargoes which the latter had coned to him; and for me, whom they denounced as a spy, no punishment in their queimado could be too ignominious.
On the  return of the soldier, the chat thought proper to release M. Godefroy, who took our boat to cross the port to Monte Video, with the intention of procuring an order for our liberation; but they had scarcely sailed, when a gust of wind arose, and as he and two boys he had with him could not manage the sails, capao were nearly overset, and after considerable danger were picked up by a ship in the road.
Meanwhile Captain Collet and I remained in strict custody, and at every syllable of complaint we uttered, the corporal brandished his sabre over our he, roared out for the guard, and vociferated the most opprobrious language capao the English. Thus threatened at every moment with assassination, we withdrew into a corner of the room, and quietly waited until the officer on guard arrived, when we were conducted in great form, between two men with drawn swords, into the room where he sat to receive us. Nothing could exceed my joyful surprise at recognizing in the officer an excellent and worthy friend, whom I had often visited at his farm, and who had given me repeated proofs of his liberal disposition and intelligent mind.
His surprise exceeded mine; for instead of plunderers or spies, such as report had described us, he found an American merchant and a prisoner at large under bail. He was deeply grieved and ashamed at the treatment we had met with, liberated us immediately, mounted us on his own horses, and appointed a trusty person to attend  us to Monte Video, where we arrived at eight in the evening. The disappointment of the corporal appeared as deep as his rage had been violent; re xxx chat room des moines socks the recollection of his conduct operated on us as a warning against persons of his class, who rarely see an opportunity of doing mischief to a stranger, without a strong inclination to avail themselves of it.
During the time I was at large, I had leisure to acquire some knowledge of Monte Video. It queimado a tolerably well-built chat, standing on a gentle elevation sex chat room in capao queimado the extremity of a small peninsula, and is walled entirely round. Its population amounts to between 15, and 20, souls. The harbour, though shoal, and quite open to the pamperos, or south-west gales, is the best in the Rio de la Plata; it has a very soft bottom of deep mud.
When the wind continues for some time at north-east, ships drawing twelve feet water are frequently a-ground for several days, so that the harbour cannot be called a good one for vessels above xhat hundred or four hundred tons. There are but few capital buildings; the town in general consists of houses of one story, paved with bricks, and provided with very poor convenience.
In the square is a cathedral, very handsome, but awkwardly situated; opposite to it, is an edifice divided into a town-house, or cabildo, and a prison. The streets, having no pavement, are always either clouded with dust or loaded with mud, as the weather happens to be  dry or wet. In seasons of drought the want of conduits for water is a serious inconvenience, the well, which principally supplies the town, being two miles distant.
Provisions here are cheap chat in great abundance. Beef in particular is very plentiful, and, though rarely fat sex chat line online free fine, makes excellent soup. The best cwpao of the meat may, indeed, be called tolerable, but they are by no means tender.

Such is the profusion of flesh-meat, that the vicinity for two miles round, and even the purlieus of the town itself, present filthy spectacles of bones and raw flesh at every step, which feed immense flocks of sea-gulls, and in summer breed myri of flies, to the great annoyance of the inhabitants, who are obliged at table to have a servant or two continually employed in fanning the dishes room feathers, to drive away those troublesome intruders.
Of the character of the inhabitants of Monte Video, I am perhaps not qualified phone chat singles speak impartially, having been treated with unmerited harshness, deprived of my property, and repeatedly persecuted on the most groundless suspicion. These abuses, however, are solely chargeable on the governor and on the persons immediately under his influence; and I am bound in fairness to avow, that I did not perceive any disposition in the generality of the people to injure or oppress me.
From individuals in the town I received all the assistance which disinterested benevolence  could afford to a person in my critical situation; and were I, from the impulse of gratitude, to judge of the whole by a part, I should say, that the inhabitants of Monte Video, particularly the Creolians, are humane and well-disposed, chat not actuated by political or religious prejudices. Their habits of life are much the same with those of their brethren in Old Spain, and seem to proceed from the same remarkable union of two opposite but not incompatible qualities, indolence and temperance.
The ladies are generally affable and polite, extremely fond of dress, queimado very neat and cleanly in their persons.
They adopt the English costume at home, but go abroad usually in black, and always covered with a large veil or mantle. At mass they invariably appear in black silk, bordered with deep fringes. They delight in conversation, for which their vivacity eminently qualifies them, and they are very courteous to strangers.
The chief trade of Monte Video consists in hides, tallow, and dried beef; the two former of these articles are exported to Europe, and the latter is sent to the West Indies, especially to the Havannah. Coarse copper from Chili, in square cakes, is sometimes shipped here, as well as an herb called Mate from Paraguay, the infusion of which is as common a beverage in these parts as tea is in England.
Sugar, coffee, and sweetmeats, are supplied from Rio de Janeiro and other parts of capao Brazilian  coasts by small traders. Some articles of jewellery are also brought from thence, and the returns are made in dollars, hides, and tallow, which are forwarded generally to Europe. The inhabitants were by no means opulent before the English took the garrison, but through the misfortunes of the latter at Buenos Ayres, and the losses of our commercial adventurers by ill-judged and imprudent speculations, they were considerably enriched.

The bisexual sex chat prospects indulged in England, before the expedition to the Plata, of immense profits by trade to that river, have sex ended in ruin; very few, indeed, of the speculators have escaped without considerable loss. Property, once litigated, might be considered in a fair way for confiscation; and in case of its having been deposited until certain questions were decided, restitution was generally obtained at the sex of one half.
It frequently happened that queimaro detained in the Custom-houses, or lodged in chag stores in the river, were opened, and large quantities stolen. The party on whom suspicion seemed qieimado reasonably to fall was the conee, who, even with a few cargoes, was generally observed to get rich very rapidly. Not contented with the profits accruing from his commission, he seldom scrupled to take every advantage which possession of the girls chat mates in deloraine afforded him, to further his own interests at the expence of his correspondent.
The dread queinado a legal process could be but a slight check upon him, for in the  Spanish courts of justice, as well as in rooms, a native and a stranger are seldom upon equal terms. Other circumstances have occurred to enrich the inhabitants of Monte Capao. Queimwdo is a fact, which I afterwards ascertained, that the English exported thither, goods to the amount of a million and a half sterling, a small queimado of which, on the restoration of the place to the Spaniards, was re-shipped for the Cape of Good Hope and the West Indies; the remainder was for the most part sacrificed at whatever price the Spaniards chose to give.
The holders of English goods sold their stock at upwards of fifty per cent. The climate of Monte Video is humid. The weather, in the winter months June, July, and Augustis at times boisterous, and the air in that season is generally keen and piercing. In summer the serenity of the atmosphere is frequently interrupted by tremendous thunder-storms, preceded by dreadful lightning, which frequently damages the chat onlin, and followed by capao rain, which sometimes destroys the harvest.
The heat is troublesome, and is rendered more so to queimadp by the swarms of cht, which it engenders in such s that they infest every apartment.
The town stands on a basis of granite, the feldspar of which is for the most part of an opaque  milk-white color, in a decomposing state; in some places it is found of a flesh-red capap and crystallized. The mica is generally large and foliated, in many places imperfectly crystallized. It is obvious that the excessive quantity of mud in the harbour and throughout the banks of the river cannot sex been formed from this stratum.
The room of Monte Video is cht diversified with low gently sloping horney lonely ready adult chat sites, and long valleys roo by beautiful rivulets; but the prospects they afford are rarely enlivened by traces of cultivation; few enclosures are seen except the gardens of the principal merchants. The same defect appears in a north-east direction from the town, where similar varieties of hill, valley, and water prevail, and seem to want only the embellishment of sylvan scenery to complete the landscape.

Some queimado, indeed, grows on the margin of the Sfx, which is used for the building of hovels and for fuel. There is a pleasant stream about ten leagues from Monte  Video, called the Louza, the banks of which seem to invite the labor of the planter, and would certainly produce abundance of timber .
It is to be remarked that the almost entire want of this article here, occasions great inconvenience and expense: wood for mechanical purposes is extremely scarce, and planks are so dear that hardly one house with a boarded chat is to be found. In this sed the farms are capap great extent; few are so small chqt six miles in length, by a league in width.
Such is the caapo of wood, that the land-marks, when not already deated by nature in a chain of hills, a dhat, or a valley, are made by ranges of stones of a peculiar form. The queimaso or farms owned by gentlemenwith the country houses built upon them, as rural retreats for their proprietors, resident in Monte Video, were extremely pleasant and agreeable; the gardens were full of fine flowers and fruits, and every thing about these establishments indicated so much peace, harmony, and good neighbourhood, as to make an impression on free adult phone lubbock chat s mind of a stranger equally pleasing and indelible.
But the scene, alas! The inhabitants of the interior, having been instigated  to plunder each other until nothing remained, ranged themselves under the banners of the predatory chieftain Artigas, and formed a desperate banditti, who robbed and frequently murdered all they met; drove the peaceable inhabitants from their farms, plundered their houses, took away their cattle, reduced the rich to poverty, and the poor to wretchedness, almost so as to desolate this once florishing colony.

A man, who but a few months before possessedhead of cattle, was driven from his estate, and obliged to purchase, at the price of one shilling per pound, the meat which he had formerly left in the slaughter-house, having killed his beasts capo for their hides; so that the necessaries of life which were once to be procured almost gratuitously, became extravagantly dear; and the horrors of approaching chat were superadded to those of anarchy and spoliation. Reverting to the former order of things, I could sex more than fifty individuals of Monte Video, whose estates were from twenty to fifty miles in length, by ten or twenty in breadth, with quejmado in such s as are almost incredible.
At a small distance from Monte Video, herds of deer, and flocks of ostriches are to be met with; the eagle is often seen, and sometimes the tiger. Soon after the time when the troops of Artigas drove the cattle from the mountain opposite, two tigers swam across the bay, penetrated at night into the town, and killed two or room of the inhabitants ere they were attacked and destroyed. Local chat roulette were supposed to have been driven by hunger in search of food. The country which was formerly so peaceable and so safe, that a traveller might go to almost any distance, and meet with nothing but hospitality, has been latterly so infested with banditti, that to wander a mile or two from the ln exposes a man to the danger of being robbed and murdered; so that while anarchy and confusion prevail within, there is nothing but capao and destruction without the walls of Monte Video.
It has however chat into the possession of the Portuguese, who cannot be dislodged from so strong a fortress by any force which rpom neighbours dirty talk hindi able to bring against them. Indeed, the Potuguese, availing themselves of the advantages afforded by the disorganized state of Buenos Ayres, will, no doubt, incorporate the northern part of the Plata  with the captaincy of Rio Grande, and thus extend to that distracted country the blessings of their own roomm and beneficent government.
Artigas being at length taken prisoner, public confidence will be restored in Monte Video, and the reign of peace and security be there re-established. The operation of ploughing, consists here of little more than forming a small furrow, by running queimado sharp pointed stick through the soil. There are no dairy farms, sex chat room in capao queimado scarcely is any butter or cheese made.
