Position of San Domingo. If any one will take the trouble to draw, on any good map of the United States, a line due south from the extreme point of the peninsula of Florida, it will be found — after crossing the inlet, sixty miles wide, from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico--to intersect the Island of Cuba at a point yti, Port au Prince being its capital. The eastern division of the same island, and by far the most mountainous, constitutes the Republic of Dominica, of which San Domingo is the capital.
