Twas not that Northern hearts were weak, Or Southern courage cold, That shell and shot fell harming not A man on shore or hold. ”It was that all their ghosts who lived To love the realm they made, Came fleeting so athwart the fire, That shot and shell were stayed. Washington with his sad still face, Franklin with silver hair, Lincoln and Putnam, Allen, Gates, And gallant Wayne were there. ”With those who rose at Boston, At Philadelphia met; Whose grave eyes saw the Union's seal To their first charter set.

Lyon's exploit, like Allen's, was done mostly on his own responsibility, and without direct orders. Allen, when asked by the British commandant at Allen, when asked by the British commandant at Ticonderoga his authority for demanding its surrender, could only reply, By the authority of the Great Jehovah and the Continental Congress; and Capt. Lyon, in his summons to Gen. Frost, demands his surrender on general grounds only. Both Allen andhe authority of the Great Jehovah and the Continental Congress; and Capt. Lyon, in his summons to Gen. Frost, demands his surrender on general grounds only. Both Allen and Lyon took the enemy by surprise, who capitulated without striking a blow.

This was (lone at thof regulars, Canadians and Indians, and after a short skirmish made Allen and his followers prisoners. When Prescott learned that Ethan Allen.

He was bound hand and foot with irons, and these shackles weresition, a fruitless attempt was made by Beverly Robinson to bribe. Allen to lend his support to a union of that province with Canada. He wa

Ethan Allen, Benedict Arnold, and others renewed their efforts to induce the Congress to send an expedition into Canada. The latter perceived the importance of securingders to cherish every Canadian, and every friend to the cause of liberty, and sacredly to guard their property. It was now too late.

esidency until his death, in 1779 (see Wheelock, Eleazar), and was succeeded by his son, John, who was sent to Europe to procure funds for the support of the college. He obtained considerable sums, and philosophical implements. In 1816 a religious controversy led to a conflict with the legislature, and the latter created a new corporation, called Dartmouth University, in which the property of the old corporation was vested. A lawsuit ensued, carried on for the college by Daniel Webster, which resulted (1819), finally, in the establishment of the inviolability of chartered rights and the restoration of the old charter. Wheelock was raised to the presidency in 1817, by the new board, but died a few months afterwards. He was succeeded by William Allen. At the close of 1900 the college reported sixty-one professors and instructors, 741 students, 85,000 volumes in the library, 9,000 graduates, and $2,300,000 in productive funds. Rev. William J. Tucker, D. D., Ll.D., was president.
