The region around Port Royal Entrance and
Island has -a strange, eventful and romantic his
tory. It 'Was, in 'fact, the first settled spot on
the coast Of North America. Row interesting,
in view of our expedition, to read the story of'
another expedition to the same locality, just
three hundred years ago. The first colony was
sent out by Admiral Coligni, a zealous Protest
anti and then one of the Minisiers of the Crown,
who at, the time of the War between the French,
Protestants and Catholics obtained permission of
Charles IX. to plant :a colony of Protestants in
Florida—a name then applied also to a great part
of the Southern Coast. Command ,of two ves
sels was accordingly given to Jean Ribault, "a
man experTin:sekcattsee," and in the
1562 he landed' on the Florida Cottit. Sailing
Northward, 'he Aiscoiered: several Vlvers; One of
which, from' " the fairness and largeness of its
harbor," he called the Port Royal River. The
old chronicler Landoniere, who accompanied the
expedition, describes the scene in glowing colors.
Splendid forests, shorestfestoofted witbrielf grape
clusteri; birds Of'brilliatit plumage; 'stags and
deer in the luxuriant savannahs. As the 001 d
mender cast his eye across 'the waters of the
beautiful river liefore him, says L'audoniere and
measured the breadth of its mouth' and , thtif
depth of ',its Sounding, 'he persuaded himself that.
"all the argosies of Venice could ride upon its
bosom." Accordingly, loon the island a kevt
miles.up Port Royal River he, erected„it is said,
on the Very spot where the town of Beinfoitnow
stands, a pillar with the arms of France, and a 1
few days after built a fort which, in honor of
King, Charles IX., he, called,Charles' Fort--Arx
Caro/in:a—from which circumstance the 'c'ountry
took the name of Carolina. , Ribault reminded
the colonists that they were now occupants of a
" vast country, filled with every goodly promise,
where every, man was to •be hthiored, not 'for his'
birth or fortune, but on aocOunt-of his 'own per
sonal achievements "=a .leeson, - -by the way,-
sadly neglected by after-settlers of. Carolina.,
Thus it was on that very. spot. that, for the trst
time, three hundred years ago, on the North,
American Coast, the flag of a, civilized colony
might be Seen' by the apprciric'hing mariner. But
this Met French colony did not flourioh, and„
after sending out another to the same locality,

would give some kind of `right to interfere : with.
