Excerpt from Narrative of an Expedition to Explore the River Zaire, Usually Called the Congo, in South Africa, in 1816, Under the Direction of Captain J. K. Tuckey, R. N: To Which Is Added the Journal of Professor Smith, Some General Observations on the Country and Its Inhabitants, and an Appendix, Containing the Natural History of That Part of the Kingdom of Congo Through Which the Zaire Flows

By the present improved state of nautical science, by means of His Majesty's ships of war employed on surveys, of the surveying marine of the East India Com pany, and of the accidental discoveries of commercial vessels, the hydrographical knowledge Of every part Of the globe is daily extending itself. The line Of the coasts which form the boundaries Of the continents and larger islands, are traced with more or less accuracy; the po sitions of most of the islands or groups of islands are generally ascertained and the prevailing winds and cur rents of the ocean are so much better understood than formerly, that the usual time Of an eight or nine months passage to or from China, is now reduced to four months, and rarely exceeds five. It may be said indeed, ge nerally speaking, that, as far as regards maritime disco very, the edge of curiosity has been taken off. Enough however still remains to be done. The deficiency in the detail, and the want of that accuracy so essentially necessary for the advantage and security of navigation, still furnish ample, scope for further investigation and research.
