America, having an excellent port, three leagues
in length, and in which there are many other
small islands. On the adjoining mainland there
is a river called De Salmones, (salmon), on ac
count of its abounding with these fish, of which
indeed great quantities are taken, as they are es
teemed the finest species of fish of any in that part
of the world .

Canseau, a small settlement of the same
island, which was burnt by the French in the war
of 1744.

Canseau, a cape of the same island, at the en
trance of the straits, and also a sand-bank at the
mouth of them.

CANTA, a province and government of Peru,
bounded on the n. e. and e. by Tarma, on the w.
by Chancay, partly by the corregimiento of Cer
cado, and on the s. by Huarochiri. It is 24
leagues in length n. to s. and 35 in width e. to w.
Its territory is generally uneven, being in the cor
dillera. It has some deep pits or canals, on the
sides of which, and in small spots, they sow and
cultivate vegetables, fruits, and potatoes. The
breed of cattle is by no means inconsiderable here,
and there are to be found most of the wild animals
which are natives of the sierra, namely, vicuñas,
(wild goats), and sheep peculiar to these countries,
and differing from those of Europe. In this pro
vince as well as in nearly all those of the sierra,
there is scarcely any wood for the purposes of
cooking, and this want is supplied by the use of
turf, which makes a lively fire, but which is very
apt to smoke. Those parts which are called que
bradas, or rugged and uneven, are very sickly,
and are subject to two species of maladies com
mon to other cold climates in this country ; the
one is that of warts, which not budding in due
time, often become exceedingly troublesome, and
even dangerous ; the other of corrosive sores,
shewing themselves particularly upon the face,
and are difficult to be cured, and which are attri
buted to the sting of an insect called uta. Some
mines of silver were formerly worked here, which
were so abundant, that they used to render 200
marks each cajon, (an excavation of 20 feet square,
more or less), but these, from not being regularly
worked, are filled with water. Here are also two
hills of loadstone, as also some minerals of alum,
copper, and red lead. The following rivers take
their rise in this province : The Carabaya from the
lakes Tacaimbaba and Lorococha, which empty
themselves into the sea on the n. of Lima ; and
the Pasamayo, which runs to the s. of Chancay,
first receiving the waters of some hot medicitial
springs. Its corregidor used to receive a repar-

timiento of 125,000 dollars, and it paid yearly
1000 for alcavala.

The capital is a town of the same name, in lat.
11° 10' s. and its jurisdiction comprehends 62
others, which are,

la América Septentrional donde hay un excelente Puerto, tres leguas tierra adentro y en que hay otras varías Islas pequeñas, en el continente que está contiguo hay un río llamado de Salmones, por la grande cantidad que tiene de estos peces, y de que se cogen tantos que se tienen por la pesca mejor de esta especie que hay en todo el mundo.

En esta Provincia como en quasi todas las de la Sierra no hay por lo regular leña para los usos necesarios, en cuyo lugar usan una especie de tepes que hacen fuego desapacible y de mucho humo: las quebradas son muy enfermizas, y se experimentan dos especies de males, comunes en las demás de temperamento frío, uno es el de berrugas, que no brotando a tiempo suelen ser molestas y peligrosas, la otra son llagas corrosivas especialmente en la cara, la que se hacen de difícil curación, y atribuyen allí a la picaaura de un insecto que llaman uta: en otro tiempo se trabajaron en esta Provincia algunas minas de plata, tan abundantes que daban 200 marcos por cajón, y se aguaron por haberse interrumpido su labor: tiene dos cerros de piedra Imán; y asimismo minerales de alumbre, alcaparroza y almagre. Nacen en ella los rios Carabaya, de las lagunas, Tacaibamba y Lorococha, que desaguan en el mar al N de Lima, el de Pasamayo que sale al S de Chancay, recogiendo antes las aguas de unas fuentes calientes y medicinales.
