The translation of this interesting manuscript, has is a

city. The history of the discovery of this mauuscrpt verdure
has been already ! given in an article in the N. A. Re- an
view, and the facts are repeated in a preface to this thing
trans ' lation . They are briefly these. In 1789, Charles to
jvth, king of Spain, formed the design of establish- ily
;„g a repository or library for historical or scientific return,
works relating to the Marine, and in prosecution of of
the plan, an officer of rank in the naval department,
Don Martin Fernando de Navarette, was commis- boats
sioned to explore the collections of manuscripts in
the Royal library of Madrid and other collections in ing
the capitol and in the provinces. It was in the
1 course of his researches among the Archives of the came
Duke del Infandaio, that he met with two manu* thanks
scri pts, which proved to be the. narratives of the first
1 and thirdvoyages of Columbus. t 'r he disturbed state of
I the times, and the official duties of Don Martin,have ceived
prevented this discovery from being given to the
public till 1825 ; when these narratives were publish- others
ed by the order of the present king of Spam, with ces
other documents, in two volumes, under the title of Bring

The manuscript is the hand writing of Barte- *
lome de las Casas, and is opparently an abridge
ment of the original journal of Columbus, made by called
las Casas in the course of his labours in preparing t
his History of the Indies. The introduction, Uowe- £
ver, and other extensive passages are preserved in
the precise words of Columbus ; the other portions, |]
which are easily distinguishable from these, are in 1 the
the words of the transcriber, and probably consist of
selection of the more interesting particulars of the
original diary.
The following extracts will serve as specimens of
the manner of the portions of the narration. The
first extract immediately follows the introduction,
and is in the words of las Casas. The second is
from the first passage which occurs in the words of
Columbus, apd describes the appearance of the na
tives of one of the Lucayes islands,* on which they
had landed the day previous.
