THE interest excited by a Project which not only involves the mighty advantages to commerce, by which Columbus was attracted, on his first voyage, to shorten the road to the East; but also has for its ultimate scope and tendency the enduring PEACE TO ALL NATIONS, by making it a necessity as well as an advantage to avoid disputes, induces me to publish another Edition of "The Isthmus of Darien Ship-Canal."
In doing so, I have made no change in the matter; but have, by an alteration in the arrangement of the text, endeavoured to place the facts in a more clear and lucid order before the reader.
