purpose he assembled together some wandering

At present, however, it is as it were desert and
abandoned, since its inhabitants have returned to
their former savage state of life, having been con
stantly pursued and harassed by the Charibes
Indians, against whom they could no longer main
tain their ground, after that the king’s garrison
had been withdrawn, and since, owing to the dis

it was in vain for them to look for any succour
from that quarter.

racaibo
, on thew. side.

the mountains of Dorado or Manoa to the n.w.
The whole of its territory is, as it were, unknown.
The Portuguese possess the shores of the Maranon
and the sea-coast as far as the bay of Vicente Pin
zon ; the Dutch of the colony of Surinam, by the
river Esequevo or Esquivo, called also Rupununi,
have penetrated as far as the Maranon, by the river
Paranapitinga. The mountains, which some have
represented as being full of gold, silver, and pre
cious stones, sparkling in the rays of the sun, are
merely fables, which, at the beginning of the con
quests, deceived many who had gone in search of
these rich treasures, and fell a sacrifice to the
fatigues and labours which they experienced in
these dry and mountainous countries. The Por
tuguese have constructed here two forts, called Paru
and Macapa. Mr. De la Martiniere, with his
usual want of accuracy, says that the Portuguese
have a settlement called Coropa, at the mouth of
the river Coropatuba, where it enters the Maranon ;
the Coropatuba joins the Maranon on the n. side,
in the country of Coropa, and at the settlement of
this name ; this settlement being nothing more than
a small fort, and lying in the province of Topayos,
on the s. shore of the Maranon, and being known
by the name ofCurupa, in the chart published in
1744, and in that of the Father Juan Magnin, in
1749.

COROPATUBA. See Curupatuba.

COROPUNA, a desert of the province of

cocha and Canas or Aruni. It extends more than

gerous to traverse.
