In the year 1541, Desoto first saw the Great West in the New Wo'rld. He, however, penetrated no farther north than the 35th parallel of latitude. The expedition resulted in his death and that of more than half his army, the remainder of whom found their way to Cuba, thence to Spain, in a famished and demoralized condition. Desoto founded no settlements, produced no results,' and left no traces, unless it were that he awakened the hostility of the red man against the white man, and disheartened such as might desire to follow up the career of discovery for better purposes. The French nation were eager and ready to seize upon any news from this extensive domain, and were the first to profit by Desoto's defeat. Yet it was more than a century before any adventurer took advantage of these discoveries.
