lished near Tiguex; there Alvarado brought the Indian who professed to know the way to Quivira; there Coronado himself appeared, after a tour among eight more southern villages; and there his army, which had reached Zuni without loss, arrived in December, suffering on its march from storms of snow and cold. The people who had thus far been discovered, had a civilization intermediate between that of the Mexicans and the tribes of hunters. They dwelt in fixed places of abode, built for securito die in the wilderness, than to leave it in poverty; but Moscoso, the new governor, had long desired to see himself in a place where he might sleep his full sleep. Portuguese Relation, c. XXXIV. They came upon the Mississippi at Minoya, a Dec. few leagues above the mouth of Red River, often wading through deep waters, and grateful to God if, at night, they could find a dry resting-place. The Indians, whom they had enslaved, died in great numbers; in Minoya, many Christians died; and mo
king; but North America as yet invited no colony, for it promised no sudden wealth, while the Indies more and more inflamed commercial cupidity. In March, 1501, Henry VII. granted an exclusive privilege of trade to a company composed half of Englishmen, half of Portuguese, with leave to sail towards any point in the compass, and the incidental right to inhabit the regions which should be found; there is, however, no proof that a voyage was made under the authority of this commission. In December of the following year, a new grant in part to the same patentees, promised a forty years monopoly of trade, an equally wide scope for adventure, and larger favor to the alien associates; but even these great privileges seem not to have been followed by an expedition. The only connection which as yet existed between England and the New World was with Newfoundland and its fisheries. The idea of planting agricultural colonies in the temperate regions of America was slowly developed, and co
tablished on the basis of the laws of England, and an amnesty of ancient feuds proclaimed. As Puritanism had appeared in Virginia, needless novelties in the forms of worship were now prohibited. The order to search for minerals betrays the continuance of lingering hopes of finding gold; while the injunction to promote certain kinds of manufactures was ineffectual, because labor could otherwise be more profitably employed. The business which occupied the first session under 1621 Nov. and Dec. the written constitution, related chiefly to the encouragement of domestic industry; and the culture of silk particularly engaged the attention of the assembly. Hening, i. 119. But legislation, though it can favor industry, cannot create it. When soil, men, and circumstances, combine to render a manufacture desirable, legislation can protect the infancy of enterprise against the unequal competition with established skill. The culture of silk, long, earnestly, and frequently recommended to
legislation, the power of the proprietary was almost as feeble as that of the king. The other colo- Chap VII.} nies took advantage of the period to secure and advance their liberties: in Maryland, the effect was rather to encourage the insubordination of the restless; and Clayborne was able to excite an insurrection. 1644 Early in 1645, the rebels were triumphant; unpre- 1645 pared for an attack, the governor was compelled to fly, and more than a year elapsed before the assistance 1646 Dec. of the well-disposed could enable him to resume his power and restore tranquillity. The insurgents distinguished the period of their dominion by disorder and misrule, and most of the records were then lost or embezzled. Bacon's Preface. Chalmers, 217, 218. Burk, II. 112. McMacon, 202. Peace was confirmed by the wise clemency 1647 to 1649 of the government; the offences of the rebellion were concealed by a general amnesty; Bacon, 1650, c.

It was obviously the only way to secure the country as a part of his dominions; for the Dutch were already trading in the Connecticut river; the French claimed Nean race, for censuring their measures, could not brook the independence of Williams; and the circumstances of the times seemed to them to justify their apprehensions. An intense jealousy was excited in England against Massachusetts; members 1634 Dec. of the Generall Court received intelligence of some episcopal and malignant practises against the country; and the magistrates on the one hand were scrupulously careful to avoid all unnecessary offence to the English government, on the other were
resounded of sects and schisms; of parties consenting in nothing but hostility to the church of England; of designs to shake off the royal jurisdiction. Gorges, c. XXVI. Restraints were, therefore, placed upon emigration; no one above the 1634 Dec. rank of a serving man, might remove to the colony without the special leave of the commissioners; and Chap.

To the parliament of England the legislature remonstrated with the noblest frankness against any assertion of the paramount authority of that body. An order from England, say they, is prejudicial Dec. to our chartered liberties, and to our well-being in this remote part of the world. Times may be changed; for all things here below are subject to vanity, and other princes or parliaments may arise. Let not succeeding generations have cause to l
