Chubat, or Chupat, a Welsh colony of Patagonia, taking its name from the river that flows through it. The entrance to the river is 600 miles south of the river Plate, and admits vessels of from 7 to 12 feet draught. The Welsh-speaking settlers arrived in 1865, in 1867 they abandoned the colony, but subsequently returned, and in 1871 were shut off for twenty months from the outer world. The principal town is Trerawson, five miles from the sea. The products are English grains and roots and salt. A railway of 40 miles to New Bay has been projected. A president and council administer the colony.
