Narrative: Scarcely a single town in Haiti but recalls some siege, battle, or butchery. The very river marking the northern frontier is known by the name of Riviere du Massacre, in memory of a sanguinary conflict between the natives and the Spaniards. Since the war of independence the first town west of this river bears the name of Port-Liberte, which replaces that of Port-Dauphin. There is no better harbour in Haiti than this extensive inlet, which is perfectly sheltered from all winds ard affords excellent anchorage in depths of from 26 to 65 feet; but sailing vessels find it somewhat inaccessible owing to the long winding entrance scarcely a mile wide. Hence it is visited chiefly by steamers which here ship considerable quantities of dyewoods felled in the districts of Trou and Ouanaminthe, the Guanaminto of the Arawak aborigines. South-east of Cap Saint-Marc, Mont-Roui, Arcahaye, and a few other coast villages follow as far as Port-au-Prince, capital of Haiti. This city, which owes its pre eminence to its favourable commercial position, dates only from the year 1749, when it was founded under the name of I'Hopital; the "prince" to whom its present name has reference has not been identified. All its old monuments have perished in the numerous fires by which it has so often been wasted, and it consists at present of low brick or wood houses, disposed in regular blocks between avenues lined with trees. The city, which is connected with its suburbs by a few lines of railway, was formerly defended by forts crowning the surrounding heights. North-east lies Croix-des-Bouquets, which so often changed hands during the revolutionary wars. Martin2001 Satisfaction Guaranteed Policy!
