Captain Louis Claude Desaulses De  Freycinet on the L'Urainie on a voyage of discovery arrived in Sydney. Following a week of celebrations, Monsieur and Madame Freycinet entertained the Officers of the colony on board the Uranie before departing late December.

 

In 1817 French captain Freycinet commanded the "Uranie," in which Jacques Etienne Arago and others went to Rio de Janeiro, to take a series of pendulum measurements. This was only part of a larger scheme for obtaining observations, not only in geography and ethnology, but in astronomy, terrestrial magnetism, and meteorology, and for the collection of specimens in natural history. For three years Freycinet cruised about, visiting Australia, the Marianne, Sandwich, and other Pacific islands, South America, and other places, and, notwithstanding the loss of the "Uranie" on the Falkland Islands during the return voyage, returned to France with fine collections in all departments of natural history
