Vaca De Castro Remained Above Eighteen Months In Cuzco After The Departure Of These Various Expeditions, Employing Himself In Making A Distribution Of The Unoccupied Lands And Indians, And Settling The Whole Country In Good Order, Issuing Likewise Many Useful Regulations For The Protection And Preservation Of The Indians.

In that period the richest gold mine ever heard of in our days was discovered near Cuzco in a river named _Carabaya_, where a single Indian is able to gather to the extent of a mark in one day[16].

The whole country being now perfectly tranquil, and the Indians protected from those excessive toils to which they had been subjected during the civil war, Gonzalo Pizarro was permitted to come to Cuzco, and after a few days went thence to Las Charcas, where he employed himself in taking care of the extensive estate which he possessed in that country. He there remained in quiet, till the arrival of the viceroy, Blasco Nunnez Vela in Peru, as shall be related in the sequel.

[1] This chapter is merely a continuation of the history of the discovery and conquest of Peru, by Zarate: but we have thought proper to divide it in this manner, separating the transactions which took place during the life of Francisco Pizarro, from those which occurred after his death. - E.

[2] _Il les fit prenare_, are the words of the French translator: _prendre_ may possibly be an error of the press on this occasion for _pendre_; in which case those officers of the late marquis were ordered to be _hanged_; and indeed they do not appear in the sequel.
