There, on Roanoke Island, where the first germ of a privileged aristocracy had been planted in America, there, in the year 1587, Manteo, a native chief, who had been kind to colonists sent to that coast by Sir Walter Raleigh, was, by that baronet's command, and with the approval of Queen Elizabeth, invested with the title of Lord of Roanoke, the first and last peerage created in America. Nearly a hundred years later, an attempt was made to found in North Carolina an aristocratic Government, with the nominal appendages of royalty, it being designed to have orders of nobility and other privileged classes in exact imitation of

There first my pale and sanguine race A birthplace found-perhaps a grave ; Virginia Dare, the first offspring of English parents in the New World, was born on Roanoke Island, 1587. Her father came too late to save, He met no welcome and no trace. And vainly rode the anguished carl-- For so the sole direction ran-- Across the tide to Croatan, And searched the groves of Albemarle. Perhaps she loved some Indian brave, And dusky children learned to know Far in the land of Manteo; Or paced, half-famished by the wave, Where gazing wearily at morn, She heard the far surf clash and croak The requiem of the golden corn That never came to Roanoke. Thrice ploughed thy sand the English keel-- They turned their helm through Ocracock-- They perished by the tomahawk, The famine hand, the fever heel. The brave Sir Walter led the way; He saw the blue smoke curling go Up from thy huts, Granganimo, Where the red Indian children play. And swearing never to forget The faith he pledg

After getting what information they could about the neighboring main, and inspired by the beauties of nature around them, the navigators returned to England, attended by Manteo and Wanchese, two Indian chiefs. The former was afterwards created Lord of Roanoke, and was the first and last American peer of England created. The glowing accounts given by Amidas and Barlow of the country they had discovered captivated the Qame, that thereby all occasion of cavill to the title of the countrey, in her Majesties behalfe may be prevented, which otherwise, such as like not the action may use and pretend, whose names are: Master Philip Amadas,Captaines.

an agricultural colony sent out by Sir Walter Raleigh. He was accompanied by his son-in-law, William Dare, and his young wife. It was intended to plant the colony on the mainland, but White went no farther than Roanoke. There he found the melancholy remains, in the form of whitened skeletons and a broken fort, which told the sad fate of the protectors of the rights of England which Grenville had left there. The new colonists wisely determined to cultivate the friendship of the Indians. Manteo (the chief who accompanied Amidas and Barlow to England), living with his mother and relatives on Croatan Island, invited the colonists to settle on his domain. White persuaded him to receive the rites of Christian baptism, and bestowed upon him the title of baron, as Lord of Roanoke— the first and last peerage ever created on the soil of the American republic. It became necessary for the ships to return to England for supplies, and, to hasten them, White went with them, leaving behind eig

Grenville sent him to the mainland to announce the arrival of the English, and Lane and his principal companions soon followed the dusky peer. For eight days they explored the country and were hospitably entertained everywhere. At an Indian village a silver cup was stolen from one of the Englishmen, and was not immediately restored on demand. Grenville ordered the whole town to be destroyed, with all the

Ralph Lane, who went with Grenville as governor of the country, was delighted with it, as being one of the most fertile regions he had ever beheld; but he contented himself with searching for gold. His colony, half starved, and afraid of the offended Indians, deserted Roanoke Island in one of Drake's ships. Other attempts to settle
