A HISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF BRIT BH 1 0RDWUAS.
The early history of this Settlement has been so well narrated in our former annuals the face of the country has been graphically puurtrayed its natural productions have been faithfully described, and mostly every matter relating to its commercial and municipal affairs having been drawn by able hands, little is left for me to do, after a brief suntary of events, but to take up my pen where my predecessors have stopped and attempt a continuation of their narrative.
The Settle ent of Honduras which Pas been of late years rising rapidly from obscurity is situated on the main land of America, on the western shores of the Caribbean ea. Its utmost extent of ;oast from the "io Hondo on the north, to the River Sarstoon on the south is 250 miles. Its mean breadth accordin6 to the most recent calculations is 150 thus making a total of 37,500 square miles. Although known to rat Britain for upward of two centuries as furnishing her :ith ample supplies of Logwood and Mahogany, by a series of the most glaring and culpable political blnaders the Government has never until very rorntly estoweGd that attention upon it aniAch its iqortance and great natural capabilities dea rve.
When we direct our attention to a map of the new
World, the Continents of .orth and 0outn America appear to such vast and remarkable size, a to induce us at first to overlook the apparcintly sall and trifling neck of land which connects them together; in these two magnificent continents extenasive countries of which we know but the name, ard republics of prodigious magnitude, either formed or daily starting into existence, dazzle the imagination and eclipse by their grandeur, size and number, the lesser glories of that great tract
of country now coamnonly denominated Qentral America, and which contains the celebrated republics of Golumbia and 4uatemala, British Honduras and the neighbouring territories of our old and faithful ally the Iling of the' Mosquito Nation.

setletntwith all his folwr;from this period -ap to the end of the century, thec various establishments apon the coast ancl on. the banks; of 'he rivers, augmented rapidly. 1bettlemcnts were formed at QatoiHe, and in the ,Iiwsn of Trie1 in the D3ay of C;ampeachy; but the logWood failing iii the for'mar of these places, a:nd the settlers being drimeo~t from the latter by a superior Spanish forc, t.hey -,;an rendezvosuaed at Belize, as a ,station affordity them great er facilitie of prot,-ect 'Ing themselves from the superior power of their enemies. Although varios patilegociations were entered into, for a very co- r'Aerabte period very lit-le notice seems to have been t~0iby the British Government of thi-s possessioni; at leghIn thes year 1670, The lcrative trade wit Vogua antd the other settleme-nts on the Mosquito ahln,' other parts of the.- -eais I ain, attracted the" attention of thie M,,other_ 0,oui-ry-, and a treaty was finally concluded with, the, V-.rt of opib- vAich the Power cnea to Great 'niai aI W, > tertIe In

The difficulties nihL;e the regular settling
of the Colony fromwi time to 1740 aroose from the con-, stant war i ,vni we were -nagdwith the w;rown of Spain, and. being surrounded on all sides, by otiT vindictive and pqwerfal foe From fuilOmOa, Porto ?hello, Carthagena, and ,.,cr poe-.uens ionz to the southward, from the Bay of Cpecyand her possessions to the northward. d and from her settlements In UCeAco at the, vcry sources of the Rivers w hich run Into-,'-: tin hart of oar little territory, she was continually despatching ar~mcmnts'for the destruction of the British, and although tae Treaty of madrid in 1667 secured -the LIettlers In the peaceful possession of their property, and It was expressly agreed




agreed that six months notice should be given by either party in the event of a declaration of war, in order that te property of the Wood Cutters might be removed from ~te country, the 6paniards were guilty of the most diabolioal infringement of this agreement. In 1675 they expeotedly fell on the english settlements at Triste and elsewhere, and dragged upwards of -600 of the settlers to the mines of Mexico where mostly all these unfortunate individuals perished under the hardships ad cruelties of their situation. The inhabitants however after this distressing event seem to have been on their guard, and inspired with the bravery of the origLal settlers, they not only repelled all future attacks very frequently with sucee-a and never without honour, but gathering strength, they laid siege to the 'ity of Campeachy and carried it by assault.
L The ipaniards worsted in all their attempts to
attack the Colony by sea took advatage of their superior knowledge of the interior omu-ication rand assembled a force of 1500 men at he town of Peten, situated on an island in the lake of Itza, about 260 miles west of the town of b lize, aai at the head of the "iver of that name. Perfectly acquainted with the conlatry the Spaniards rapidly advanced without opposition along the banks of the river, and before intelligence could arrive in Belize of their hostile movements, they reached to within 80 miles of the town. Bat here at labouring creek where there was a military fort they met with a most unexpected and decisive check eight men in a small wooden fort actually stopped the approach of the 4panish force and maintained their position until a body of the inhabita ts to the number of 210, principally consisting of slaves, headed by their Masters, could be collected. By a hasty march of about six hours they gained Fig-tree landing on the Belize niver.- Here the Old riverr settlers were joined by a number of their countrymen from the New niver, and proceeding together, they gave battle to the Qpaniards whom they completely routed and put to flight; the settlement for a short time after these eventful struggles, enjoyed a short interval of repose.




In the year 1763, a treaty ever memorable in the
annals of British Honduras, was signed at Paris, the evil effects of which have been felt up to this hour, and have proved the fruitful source of all the perplexity and
:mbarrassment to which the Settlement has been so long subject. By this treaty the most shameful concessions were granted to Spain the country which the bravery of its inhabitants had aneyed to the 0rittsh dominions was again delivered over, the fortifications were ordered to be destroyed, the settlers disarmed, and powerless were left exposed to the tender mercies of their most bitter and implacable enemy who seeing the great wealth which was flowing into !ritain from the dye-woods and other produce of the Settle ent, ardently desired to expel for ever the industrious and enterprising Britich residents from this oontir Lt, a constiation whiO they had no doubt of being able to effect at a future and convenient time by obtaining te demolition o our fortifications Jd shall Ireconnlb s:3 that the '2,ort.itt so much coveted was not lon in arLiving and :hen te treacherous duplicity of Lpai in king the treaty, and the olunderiA ignorance of the english government in coosenting to it were both apparent.
Two years after the "reat;; of 17G0, the Busourable Sir dilliam Surnaby was sent Wjodn L toe 'Govsrno of Jamaica to sce that its stipt:1tions weri enforced, and that the interests of the British received as much protect ion as the oircstances of thq aliny would at that time admit of whilst he resided at Beli e he took upon himself the government of the Settlenint, and before his departure he gave a constitution to lie people in the King's name which consisted in passing laws in Legislative eetiags and carrying these laws into effect by a Bench of magistrates, who appear by this code of regulations to have received both Judicial and Executive functions. It is worthy of remark that the celebrated Captain Qock the great navigator, assisted air Ailliam in these arrangements. 2or some time after this event ow owing most probably to the frequent visitations of British ships of war the settlement experienced a calm but it was the calm which portended the coning storm.




7.
On the 15th of September 1779 in defiance of the
stipulations of the treaty which had been entered into so short a time before, and without the least provocation on the part of the British, a large 4pantsh force attacked the settlers at 6t. ieorge's itay after a brave but anavailing defence the superiority of numbers prevailed and almost the Whole of the -rt lers on the hay were taken prisoners. The m;ay wa- pilaged a the expedition returned to the roai0 ,he british waveie blindfolded and ironed, marche up to Ferita tae capital of Yucatan and were thence transferred to the Hava.ila in Cuba, where they were imprisoned und where many died, 2he bravery of the zaymen however a not to be subdued; t Ieorge's Kay was not allowed to remain ong in the possession of the opaniards it was re-taken with great slaughter. 'The British assembled in force at the islands of nuatan and Bonaea, and being reinforced from the iaoscpito ghore, they stormed Omoa, the principal bpanish port in these seas, made the garrison prisoners of war a exchanged hem for thair unfortunate cooitrynn who were languishing in the, prisons of iverida and the iavanna.
Omoa being subsequently abandoned we again find the settlement after many reverses ot fortune oeuubjeot of a new treaty with pain in 1783 'odney a. eison were now in the Caribbean -ea, -i 4lto as al ready giving

In 1786 a Convention was signed at ;,ondon, by this treaty the last entered into with Opain on the subject of Honduras, the right of cutting mahogany and nll other woods was added to that oi cutting logwood permission was granted to settle on 6t. George'ls Zay, and to refit mroant ships at the southern Triangles the original limits for outting were extended from Rio Hondo on the north to the Sibun on the south liberty was given to the settlers to gather the fruits and produce of the earth, rely natural and uncultivated, cut to carry these away in their natural state for 1he purposes or utility or conerce.

ed to allow hiA so to go to Halnon a Colonel Morris being left as- a otaefor hi safe return. This young
lad remained In Ltingland three "years and on returning to his native country y and a;. ,cending the throne, so convinced was he of the good faith oi' Lrgland and the advantages his country would derive from her alliance and protection that he gave -up his crowin to Britain and to this day the Kings of the Mosquito piation are crowned with much solemnity at Belize. 4




However, this faithful ally we aba vconed, and in /77 the Settlers from the Mosquito ahore with Colonel Lawrie their Superintendenit, arrived in Belize, and added so much to the population that the southern part o the Town was laid out and .built. I Qommissioner having been appointed by the King of Spain to see the treaty carried into effect and the famous Qolonel Jespard having arrived from 'ngland with like powers as -perintenient they proceeded together to survey the Rivers and mark out the new boundaries. In the year 1788 the ettlement was visited with a severe calamity on the 23,1 September a hurricane commenced which before the close oF the day had levelled with the ground very nearly all the houses in Belize, destroyed eleven square rigged vessels, and drove the remainder which were in harbor on shore a great many persoja perished great property was lost and many important paperz relattng to the Settlement.
A very short spaea hAd only elapsed after the treaty of 1786, when the bettlerant was thrown into gret confueion in~oonsequencr of t article which prohilited the formation of any system of Government ulouel is'pard had to enooanter most vexatious proceeging. on the part of the Spanish Gommiswary who 7ramined into he state of Honduras twice a year. ae 8 o or :nt proposed
by ir dilliam ma d accepted by te inhabitants,
continued with soe slit3t n nts L f oce to this system which invited he laa itants wite the election :. the Magistrates the 4panish -on i iasary objected, and demanded that it should can e as it was in direct hostility to the terms of the treaty L'eepard p-rceiving the ruin of the Settlement if left without a body to administer justice boldly formed a scheme of temporary police this as partially confirmed from Home, but beiag liable to some objections and not being perfectly suited to the wants and wishes of the inhabitants here, the old Constitution, founded on the Burnaby code, was finally adopted and progated byethe hing's order In spite of all the bluster an opposition of spain. Under this system of polity odified from time to time by resolutions taxen at public betinge of the Inhabitants, we have gone on uninterrupt11y to this day.




The settlers now enjoyed a cessation of -hostilities until the year 1798 in that year the Spaniards made their most formidable and final attempt upon the Colony. iar some time previous it had been known that they were assembling large forces in the neighbourhood. The Governo of Jamaica must have had the best information as a statenmnt of the armaments fitting out in the barbours of Campeachy and aoalar were contained in the Gazette of th island some tie before their destination was known, and it is very remarkable that although the settlement of
Honduras very naturally pointed itself out as the spot towards which the hostile intentions of the enemy were directed, no assistance of any sort was rendered from Jamaica beyond a sloop of war. The inhabitants w6re left with trifling detacinents of two black R1egiments, and a few men of the ^oyal Artillery, with very little ammunition and no warlike stores to defend this important Settlement in the best way they could, but the determination of the settlers to resist the dpaniards to the last was evinced in the most noble arna patriotic manner. s soon as it was known that the expedition was destined to act against Belize, the Colony then under the superintendence of Colonel Barrow, set about preparing for Its defence and made the most vigorous arrangements for a warm reception to the enemy every craft and boat whether of business or of pleasure was armed and manned tmhe houses on St. George's Kay were destroyed it was the general opinion and there can be no doubt it was a corre w0 r that it was the intention of the pniards to posse themselves of that spot, intrench themselves there, send for more troops to Bacalar and then taLe the town at their leisure. The Baymen in order to render this part of the enemy's plans abortive came to the daring resolution of totally abandoning the Kay, carrying off all property which could be removed .and destroying the remainder. It was however of importance that the enemy should not gain possession of the harbour of Ot. keorge's Kay, and accord ingly a few armed boats were sent there to oppose his passage over the shoals. The 5panish armament destined f the reduction of Belise at length made its appearance 1 consisted of 32 sails of small sloops and schooners. with




11
with 2000 soldiers and 500 sailors. The expedition was conducted by General O'Nell, the Governor of Yucatan, and Field Marshal in the service of pain. On the 3rd and 5th of September the enemy made two attempts to gain possession of the harbour of 4t. George's Kay but on both occasions they were repulsed with considerable loss. On the 6th the Merlin sloop of war arrived at ~t. George's Kay and Captain Mose. R. N. took the coand of the Flotilla. For four days no further attenpt was made to renew the attack by the enemy. An attentive watch was kept upon his motions by the numerous dories which were continually plying.about him, and whioh from the rapidity with nich they paddled proved of great service. On the morning of the 10th information was conveyed to Qaptain Loss, that the enemy were moving and the 4panish vessels crowded with a.en and towing launches full of soldiers, soon apyare bearing down on the British 'lotilla. Captain oes having expected the attack and made nis arragements to receive it, as soon as the punish fleet neared Ais line gave the signal to attack heled the way by a broadside from the Merlin which was followed by a discharge from every gun L. 1c flotilla. The Spaniards having answered this salt a heavy oannonading m-f dlaateljy c._enoted. The difference between the firing was soon visible, the enemy bega to fall into geat confusion a it iaa observed that roar of them had got a ground a division of the negroes dr th e command of their master, a )rave old entleman of ta name of slow gave three cheers ad advaced 11 glish sailors
o board. Phe veteran alol, ar ad inL a orocaded kaurt uit which had belong to Gaorge II, and shouting "Yarborough or Fingarico" was advancing to annilhilabe the Spaniards when he was ordered by captain os to retire, who dreaded the fatal effects to Belize should any part of his little force have been uninecessarily destroyed. withinn an hour and a half after the engagement had commenced, the Spaniards unable any longer to stand the sharpness of the British ire out their cables, and having got their grounded vessel float, bore away with all sail for Campeachy and bacalar t aring to rish another engagement the Merlin was
able to pursue them in consequences of the shallowness of he water and no other craft was equal to it unsupported by e.




12.
By this triumph the inhabitants were relieved from
the deplorable anxiety by whi a they had been long harrassed, and one of her most important trans-atlantic possessions preserved to Sngland.
A naval engagement however brilliant, in which no capture has been made is apt to loose much of its renown in the eyes of the vlgar, but if we consider the disproportionate, force of the British and all the eireumvstances under which thie action was fought, we shall have no difficulty in awarding to the actors very distinguished m erit. The conduct of the sla es is particularly deserving of praise, both as regards their fidelity to their Masters and oravery against the enemy. Although General O'Neil had offered a sum of money and their li erty to all slaves who would desert to him, there was not a single instance of this taking place.
The Colony was now conquered by arms. IThe undefined and ridiculous te dre under which it had been formerly held was cut short by the sword and the more assured and better recognised rigut of conquest had succeeded to it, and its existence as a dependancy of the British pire established. The settlers had the honourable satisfaction of receiving through the Secretary of Otate, the solemn thanks and approbation of their excellent) and beloved monarch, George the Third.
From this date pain has abandoned her pretensions, the Uolony has remained undistarbed, and the most imposing indications of its improving prosperity have taken place, In 1812, the handsome edifice of bt. John's Church was built. In 1914, the Government House, a most excellent mansion was began. In 1816, the Honduras Free ohool was established, ard in the saic year the "ridge across the Belize River, which connects the north wLth the south side of the town was conmenced, principally at the expense of the Crown, and finished in 2 years. In 1817 the Militia was reorganised, and was directed by the late George the Fourth, then rince Regent, to assume and bear upon its colours, the designation of the "Prince Regent's Aoyal Honduras Militia,". In 1819, the Court House, a large an splendid building was erected, and In the same year the Supreme Court was established by Act of Parliament. In 1820 the Republics of Mexico and Central AMerica declared




declared themselves independent of 'pain and from this era Honduras has assumed new and important features. The contiguity of the settlement to these republics afford it immense advantages for supplying them with British manufactures being only two days' sail from Uma, Truxillo, and the anlf of ulce on the sauth ar4 acalar and other parts to the north our intersoirce with them has increased with the utmost rapidity, a OL latest annual -spplies have always considerably exc th o former years.
Mahogany, of a proper size, the hitherto staple
commodity of this place if it is not now exhausted in the forests within the British limits, is only to be found in very Anaccessible portions of the Settlement, and in situations from whence it could not be brught out but at an expense which would render it ridienlous to attempt the task. Under these oion metances the att-ntion of the inhabitants has been latterly turned to th c Itivation of the soil for the purpose of raising aL exportiL the various article of tropical produce VA t awti of
which the country is eminently adapted. The pstIon of the bettleient is so favourable for ceameroial pursuits that it must long ao ltinue the first entrept for the Introduction of British manufactures into -entral ,Americar but to increase the solid important and intrinsic value of the the I"habian ..ust usee th Ir best and
strongest endeavours to promote the improvement of its great natural advaatagee as, to guote the impressive language used by our present ca xrk'eldent in one ot his addresses to the Public Mteting "it must be apparent "hat the time has no.i arrived wnen Capital and the vigorous exertion of Agricultural industry and an identity of Interiests between the iMerohant and 4griculturist are necessary to support that prosperity to which honduras has attained,"
T'he circumstances of Honduras, both internal and
external, are extremely favourab': to commercial prosperity. With a line of coast, of 300 miles in extent, defended long its complete length from the daaerous swells of the aribbean sea, by a natural breakwater of Coral, it thus fords the surczt protection to its coasting trade which known in the habitable globe: and while this long rage fasmooth water connects its two extremities by a safe and




,14.
and easy voyage of two days, its internal water commanioations afford no less facility for bringing the productions of the interior to the sea. The h1o Hondo
the Belize niver, the New river, the Bibun, and many others, penetrate into the interior almost in parrallel lines to each other, and except in one or two trifling instances, are navigable by boats for 150 miles from their mouths. These rivers again a-7 ocanacted with eaoh other by various cre-e- r natural canals and lagoons, which are spread all over the country, thus intersecting the whole with facilities for water communication, and offering to coloulnt all t:h advantages which are obtained by a ready and '"re market being brought to their doors. The mosquito .o e nds from oape Honduras on the north

A short time before public worship commenced numerous bdnds of apprenticEs, some o-.- whom had arrived not hour before from distances of 200 miles up the "ivers to be present on the occasion, as sembled at the Court House and proceeded in procession to tue Church they were accompanied by bands of music and displayed a variety of gay banners bearing appropriate devices




-" The sons of Ham respect the memory of dilberforce""The ueen God bless her" "Macdonald for ever" "Civil and Religious Liberty all over the orld," &o.
A most suitable discourse from GALATIANS V.I."Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage ," was preact:61 by our exellent and worthy Rector. To thts3 coA :e the emancipated
Apprentices listened aith the most respectful deportment-ard after Church service had been performed they marched into the lawn before C-oernment Hois, the grounds around which they ompletely filled. They wNere received by the 2uperintenden+ who ns aurrounded by the Judges of the Court, the iagiatrates, Officers of her Majesty's Sip Corus, and >f the nd Gect India Regiment. The scene was likewise graced, and enlivened by Mrs. Colonel LaoIonald and a large portion of the beauty and fashion of B e.
After the INtional anthem had been played, .1elson
Sohaw, "Inald spaker" and a "snow drop" of the first water advanced to his Excellenoy ad spoke nearly as follows: "On the part of my emanoipated. Brothers and histere "I venture to approach your 2Hxcellency to intreat you to "thank our Most Gracious 4ueen for all that she done for "us we will pray for Lkr we ,III fiht for her, and 11 "it is necessary, we will ie -for her. e hank your "Eoellenoy for all you have done for us God bless your "&xcellency ,God bless her Excellerty Mrs Maodonald and "all the i(oyal Family. come my cotryren 5:Lrrah dance "ye black rascals, the slag of led flies over your

Nelson having concluded this energetic address his Excellenoy informed the Apprentices that he had had every
reason to be satisfied with their past conduct, and'hoped that they would continue to demean themselves with propriety, as by that course of conduct they would best evino their gratitude for the boot conferred upon them by the Queen and their Masters. The assemblage thereafter dispersed and spent by the kindness of their late owners the remaining part of the day in festivity and mirth. It is




Is gratifying to record that the various labourers were found pursuing their usual avocations at tne accuse omed hour on the morning otf tA6 2nd, and that their highly preie-worthy conduct ever since has proved them to be hghly oapable oi enjoying the blessings of civilization libertyt,
