Isle aux Noix on the way. Resistance to such a crushing force would have been in vain, and, on Sept. 8, 1760, Vaudreuil signed a capitulation surrendering Montreal and all French posts in Canada and on the border of the Lakes to the English. General Gage was made military governor of Montreal, and General Murray, with 4,000 men, garrisoned Quebec. The conquest of Canada was now completed, and by the Treaty Isle aux Noix, in the Sorel of Paris in 1763, a greater portion of the French dominio resolved, on June 1, that no expedition or incursion ought to be undertaken or made by any colony or body of colonists against or into Canada. The Provincial Congress of New York had expressly disclaimed any intention to make war on Canada. But Gage's proclamation (June 10) that all Americans in arms were rebels and traitors, and especially the battle of Bunker (Breed's) Hill, made a radical change in the feelings of the people and in Congress. It was also ascertained that Governor Carl

ged, and to suggest means for their restoration. Other committees for various duties were appointed, and at Carpenters' Hall. about the middle of September the Congress was a theatre of warm debates, which took a wide range. On Sept. 20 they adopted a request for the colonies to abstain from commercial intercourse with Great Britain. They tried to avoid the appearance of revolution while making bold propositions. Some were radical, some conservative, and some very timid. The tyranny of Gage in Boston produced much irritation in the Congress; and on Oct. 8, after a short but spicy debate, it passed the most important resolution of the session, in response to the Suffolk resolutions, as follows: That this Congress approve the opposition of the inhabitants of Massachusetts Bay to the execution of the late acts of Parliament; and if the same shall be attempted to be carried into execution by force, in such case all Americans ought to support them in their opposition. Thus the unite

He employed Dr. John Connelly, whom he had commissioned in 1774 to lead a movement for sustaining the claims of Virginia to the whole district of Pennsylvania west of Lord Dunmore's signature. the Alleghany Mountains. He was a native of Pennsylvania, and lived at Pittsburg; and it is believed that he suggested to Dunmore the plan of combining the Western Indians against the colonists. He visited General Gage at Boston early in the autumn of 1775, and immediately after his return to Williamsburg he left Dunmore and departed for the Ohio country, with two companions. They were stopped near Hagerstown as suspicious persons, sent back to Frederick, and there an examination of Connelly's papers revealed the whole nefarious plot. He bore Dunmore's commission of colonel, and was directed to raise a regiment in the western country and Canada, the rendezvous to be at Detroit, where hostilities again

Edes, Peter, 1756-1840 Patriot; born in Boston, Mass., Dec. 17, 1756; educated at the Boston Latin School. Shortly after the battle of Bunker Hill he was imprisoned by General Gage, who charged him with having fire-arms concealed in his house. He spent 107 days in a room of the Boston jail. He was the publisher of an edition of the Fifth of March orations; also an oration on Washington. In 1837 the diary of his imprisonment, containing a list of the prisoners captured at Bunker Hill, was published in Bangor, and a letter about the Boston tea-party, addressed to his grandson, appears in the Proceedings of the Massachusetts Historical Society. He died in Bangor, Me., March 30, 1840.
