Milwaukee, Known as the Cream City, the metropolis of Wisconsin, situated on the western shore of Lake Michigan, was founded by Solomon Juneau, who arrived there Sept. 14, 1818. The place and name were known as early as Nov. 10, 1699, as John Buisson de St. Comes mentions being storm-bound at Milwarck on that date. The east side was first platted and named Milwaukee by Messrs. Juneau and Martin in 1835, the first sale of lots taking place in August of that year. In 1838 the population of Milwaukee was 700; 1840, 1,700; and by decades since, 1850, 20,061; 1860, 45,246; 1870, 71,440; 1880, 115,587; 1890, 204,468; 1900, 285,315; by this census the fourteenth city in the United States in point of population.

Martin, aware of his approach, and anticipating an armament from Ireland, kept up a continual intercourse from his floating palace on the Cape Fear with the Scotch Highlanders (who had settled Martin, aware of his approach, and anticipating an armament from Ireland, kept up a continual intercourse from his floating palace on the Cape Fear with the Scotch Highlanders (who had settled in large numbers in that province) and other Tories. He commissioned Donald McDonald brigadier-general. He was a veteran who had fought for the Young Pretender at the battle of Culloden (1746). Under him, as captain, was Allan McDonald. These two men had great influence over the Scotch Highlanders. They enlisted for the royal cause about 1,500 men, and marched from the vicinity of Fayetteville for the coast to join the governor and his friends on the Cape Fear. Col. James Moore, on hearing o

William Browne was master of the Discoverer, accompanied by Robert Galterns as supercargo or general agent of the expedition They entered Penobscot Bay early in June, and went up the Penobscot River some distance: then, sailing along the coast, they entered the mouths of the Saco and other principal streams of Maine; and finally, sailing southward, they landed on a large island abounding with grapes, which they named Martin's (corrupted to Martha's) Vineyard. Returning to England at the end of six months, Pring confirmed Gosnold's account of the country. This led to other expeditions; and in 1605 the Earl of Southampton and Lord Arundel fitted out a vessel and placed it under the command of George Weymouth, another friend of Raleigh, who had explored the coasts of Labrador in search of a northwest passage to India. He sailed from England in March, 1605, taking the shorter passage pursued by Gosnold; but st
