The Fabulous Torrid Zone, Of Parched And Burning Sand, Was Now Proved To Be A Well-Watered Region Resembling North America In Its Fresh-Water Lakes, And India In Its Hot Humid Lowlands, Jungles, Ghauts, And Cool Highland Plains.

The main object of this Zambesi Expedition, as our instructions from Her Majesty's Government explicitly stated, was to extend

The knowledge already attained of the geography and mineral and agricultural resources of Eastern and Central Africa - to improve our acquaintance with the inhabitants, and to endeavour to engage them to apply themselves to industrial pursuits and to the cultivation of their lands, with a view to the production of raw material to be exported to England in return for British manufactures; and it was hoped that, by encouraging the natives to occupy themselves in the development of the resources of the country, a considerable advance might be made towards the extinction of the slave-trade, as they would not be long in discovering that the former would eventually be a more certain source of profit than the latter. The Expedition was sent in accordance with the settled policy of the English Government; and the Earl of Clarendon, being then at the head of the Foreign Office, the Mission was organized under his immediate care. When a change of Government ensued, we experienced the same generous countenance and sympathy from the Earl of Malmesbury, as we had previously received from Lord Clarendon; and, on the accession of Earl Russell to the high office he has so long filled, we were always favoured with equally ready attention and the same prompt assistance. Thus the conviction was produced that our work embodied the principles, not of any one party, but of the hearts of the statesmen and of the people of England generally.
