TRISTAN D'ACUNHA [Newspaper Article] — The Australian — 17 March 1825

TRISTAN D' ACUNHA This island is situated in the South Atlantic Ocean, about 6000       feet above the level of the sea, in latitude 37. 6. South and Longitude 11. 45 West. It was 1st taken possession of shortly after Napoleon Bonaparte went a captive to' St. Helena by a detachment of troops from the Cape of Good Hope which consisted of a Capt 2 sub. and 100 men. The official motive for sending whom appears to have been an aprehension that the Americans were anxious to seize the island. This indeed they afterwards attempted, but on being gallantly resisted   by the garrison they took refuge in the shipping that had conveyed them, and prudently, bore off.                 The first erections were 2 forts or batteries to command the only two landing places, which' although now dismounted and partly in ruins might again be rendered e...
