ABACU, a point of land on the s. coast of the
island of St. Domingo.

ABADES, a settlement of the province and go-
vernment of Popayan, in the district and jurisdic-
tion of San J uan de Pasto.

ABANCyVY, a province and corregimiento of
Peru, bounded on the e. by the large city of Cuzco,
(its jurisdiction beginning at the parish of Santa
Ana of that city), and on the a), by the province
of Andahuailas ; n. by that of Calcaylares, form-
ing, in this part, an extended chain of snow-covered
mountains ; s. by the provinces of Cotabaraba and
Aimaraez ; s. w. by Chilques and Masques. It
extends 26 leagues from e. to w. and is 14 broad.
Its most considerable river is the Apurimac, which
is separated from it at the n. w. and bends its
course, united with other streams, towards the
mountains of the Andes. This river is crossed by
a wooden bridge of 80 yards long and S broad,
which is in the high road from Lima to Cuzco, and
other provinces of the sierra. The toll collected
here is four rials of silver for every load of goods
of the produce of the country, and twelve for those
of the produce of Europe. The temperature of
this province is mild, and for the most part salu-
brious, with the exception of a few vallies, where,
on account of the excessive heat and humidity,
tertian agues are not uncommon. It produces
wheat, maize, and other grain in great abundance,
and its breed of horned cattle is by no means in-
considerable ; but its principal production is
sugar, which they refine so well, that it may chal-
lenge the finest European sugars for Avhiteness ;
this is carried for sale to Cuzco and other pro-
vinces, and is held in great estimation. It also
produces hemp, cloth manufactures of the coun-
try ; and in its territories mines of silver are not
wanting, especially in the mountain which they
call Jalcanta, although the natives avail them-
selves not of the advantages so liberally held out to
them. Its jurisdiction comprehends 17 settle-
ments. Therfp«rb‘r/jewto,quotaoftribute,amounted
to 108,750 dollars, and it rendered yearly 870

ABACU, punta de tierra de la costa del S de la Isla de Santo Domingo.

ABADES, Pueblo de la Provincia y Gobierno de Popayan, en el distrito y jurisdicción de San Juan de Pasto.

ABANCAY, Provincia y Corregimiento del Perú, confina por el E con la gran Ciudad del Cuzco, empezando su jurisdicción por la Parroquia de Santa Ana de aquella Ciudad, por el O con la Provincia de Andahuailas: por el N con la de Calca y lares, formando por esta parte una dilatada cadena de montañas nevadas: por el S con las de Cotabamba y Aimaraez: por el SO con la de Chilques y Masques. Su extensión es de 0.6 leguas E O y 14. de ancho. El Río de mas consideración que tiene es el de Apurimac, que se separa de ella al NO, penetrando, unido a otros, las Montañas de los Andes. Se pasa por un puente de madera de 80 baras de largo y 3 de ancho, y es camino real de Lima al Cuzco, y otras Provincias de la Sierra. Paga en éi 4 rs. de plata cada carga de efectos de la tierra, y 12 la de los de Europa. El temperamento de esta Provincia es templado en casi toda ella y muy sano, a excepción de uno u otro Valle, en que por el excesivo calor y humedad, se padecen tercianas. Produce mucho trigo, maiz y demás semillas en abundancia, y se cria en ella, no poco ganado vacuno; pero su principal fruto es el azúcar que labran tan blanca, que puede competir con la mejor de Europa, y se lleva a vender al Cuzco y otras Provincias con estimación. TamBien produce alguna ropa de la tierra, no faltando en sus territorios minas de plata, especialmente en el cerro que llaman Jalcanta: pero no se trabajan por la poca afición que sus naturales tienen a esta labor. Su jurisdicción tiene 17 Pueblos, y tenia asignados de repartimiento a su Corregimiento 108750 pesos fuertes, pagando 870 de Alcabala cada año.

ABANES, Nación de Indios bárbaros del nuevo Reyno de Granada, en los llanos de San Juan al N del Oricono; habitan en los bosques que hay a orilla de este río y de otros pequeños, confinando a levante con los Salivas, y al poniente con los Caberres y Andaquíes: son dóciles, de buen natural, y no repugnan reducirse a la fe católica.

ABANGOUI, Pueblo grande de la Provincia y Gobierno del Paraguay: es de Indios de la nación Guaraní, situado a orilla del río Taquani. Lo descubrió Alvar Nuñez, Cabeza de Vaca, el año de 1541.

ABECOCHI, Pueblo de Indios de la Carolina Meridional, situado a orilla del río Cousa: en él tienen los Ingleses un establecimiento con un fuerte para su defensa.

ABEICAS, Nación de Indios de la Nueva Francia, confinante por el N con la de los Alibamones, y por el E con la de los Cheraquis: vive distante de los rios grandes; y su terreno solo produce unas cañas, que no son de mas grueso que el de un dedo, pero tan duras que quando se rompen cortan lo mismo que un cuchillo. Estos Indios hablan la lengua Tchicacha, y están aliados con las demás naciones contra los Iroqueses.
