Chapters XXII - Easter Island, Pitcairn Island and Norfolk Island
Pitcairn Island; and Norfolk Island. Huge pictures, Pitcairn Island." It is generally hilly and sparse and bears clear traces, not only of vulcanic origins, but also the fact that it was never completely destroyed by an outbreak in any very outlying time. In any case, they were powerful proof of the inventiveness and endurance of the island' s inhabitants at the time they were built.
Easter Island's total inhabitants should not be more than 1000 or 1200 people. Just before Kotzebue's arrival, who calls the indigenous people enemy and against his landings, he reports that an US master who commands a ship named "Nancy" from New London has seen a large number of seal species on the shore of an inhabited island near Juan Fernandez, known as Massafuero, on the Chilicoas; he has been able to find them on the island;
and since he thought it would be a good guess to start a fishing business there, and in the absence of hand he went to Easter Island, where he confiscated and abducted twelve men and ten wives. Throughout the first three day these abductees were held in iron and even more so freed out of the country's view when all men leapt over board instead of being taken to the slaves. But what finally became of the wives who were taken to Massafuero Island is not told by M. Kotzebue.
and Pitcairn Island is only four and a half leagues in orbit. As the Society Islands, it is of vulcanic origins and the landscape is rugged and scenic. Lt. Shillibeer, who came to Pitcairn in the British in 1814, says: "The island has a very nice look, and I was told by Christian that it was fruitful and cultivatable.
Its coastline is connected to cliffs, so the people of the island are always forced to bring their small boat to the town. But the wood is so lightweight that a man can bear the weight of the greatest. He notes from the hamlet or estate where the inhabitants of the island lived, page 419 "After climbing to a small éminence, we were guided unnoticeably through groups of groups of chocolate, walnut and breadfruit tree to a pretty quaint little hamlet that intersperses in a long plaza with various types of flowerbed.
On the way, Fletcher Christian, the captain's companion, talked most of the ship's personnel into a rebellion against the captain's authorities; and when he was coerced into an open sailboat with scarce supplies near Tofua, one of the friendly islands, the Lt., and eighteen other people, he drifted onto the oceans.
Meuterer went to Tahiti, page 420, where part of them stayed; nine, however, refused to set up there, went to the "Bounty" in search of a new home and settled on the island of Pitcairn and took their Tahiti women and six Tahiti men with them, three of whom had women and a baby.
The destiny of Christian and his associates (who had led the boat on land and burnt it in Pitcairn) stayed largely anonymous for many years, and it was not until 1808 that an US boat moved to Pitcairn and told the UK government that it was the retreat of the Bounty rebels who had abandoned Tahiti in 1790; but no action was taken in this affair, nor was the island visited again, until 1814, when Sir Thomas Staines, the commander of H.
" "Those men proved," Sir Thomas Staines says in his epistle to the Commander-in-Chief, "that they are the offspring of the blinded crews of the'Bounty' who went from Tahiti to the above-mentioned island where the vessel was burned. It was the devout way in which all the men and women of the island were brought up, and the right religious spirit that this old man inspired in their young heads, that gave him priority over anyone who regarded him as the whole man, as a whole, as a family.
" By 1831, when the number of island inhabitants had risen to 87, the difficulties of obtaining enough to eat and, above all, to drink on the small rock island on which they lived, and they were brought to Tahiti at their own request under the convoi of a Britains warship.
The Pitcairner emigrations, 194 in number, were made at the cost of the UK government, they were brought to H.M.S. "Morayshire" on Norfolk Island, where they all arrived safe on 8 May 1856. A group of 27 people, still craving Pitcairn, have since come back in a small boat.
" Northfolk Island lies 29 3' southern and 167 58' eastern latitudes, about 900 nautical mile to the west of the Australian coastline and almost northern of the northern cap of New Zealand, from which it is just over 300 mile. It' very small, with an area of only thirteen and a half sqkm.
Isle of Norfolk Island is well irrigated and sound, and the land in general is fruitful. This was once the home of the now vanished Nestor productsus or Philip Island Macaw. This island has not been enviable for many years as a punishment colony of the worse classes of detainees, who are so stiff that they are banned from the prisons of the neighboring Australia settlements.
Fortunately, however, the vast prison on the island of Norfolk, which turned one of the most beautiful places on the planet into a site of the worst possible mental humiliation and desperate bodily distress, has been closed for ten years and the island is currently being invaded by the Pitcairn Islanders, who were taken there at their own wish under the patronage of the UK government.
It is located on Sydney Bay, on the south side of the island. There were no fewer than 1,000 prisoners on the island in 1836. When you land and enter the island's inner parts, the countryside is particularly attractive and attractive. Mountains and dales are covered with delicate gras and here and there covered with tufts of Norfolk pines (Araucaria excelsa), "arranged," says Mr. Hood, "as if by the hand of the landscaper in the most scenic way over the whole island to the top of Mount Pitt, which climbs to a peak of more than page 4261000ft.
Several of these pine species, which have blossomed on the hillsides of Mount Pitt for centuries, are the noblest and reach a total altitude of more than 200ft.
