Great shoals of fish have lately been cast ashore in Table Bay, dead or dying. Off Green Point, shoals have also been observed so thickly wedged together as to rise in some places, as it were in heaps and ridges above the surface of the water. One of these ridges was mistaken for a considerable time by some spectators on the beach, for the back of a large whale ; at another instant, it very much resembled the famous American Sea-serpent.

The Barbary Coast, or Berber Coast, was the term used by Europeans from the 16th until the 19th century to refer to much of the collective land of the Berber people. Today, the term Maghreb correspond roughly to "Barbary". The term "Barbary Coast" emphasizes the Berber coastal regions and cities throughout the middle and western coastal regions of North Africa – what is now Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. The English term "Barbary" (and its European varieties: Barbaria, Berbérie, etc.) referred mainly to the entire Berber lands including non-coastal regions, deep into the continent.
