om twelve to thirty pounds. By its Chap. XIX.} position, also, Maryland was connected with the north; it is the most southern colony which, in 1695, consented to pay its quota towards the defence of New York, thus forming, from the Chesapeake to Maine, an imperfect confederacy. The union was increased by a public post. Eight times in the year, letters might be for- 1695. warded from the Potomac to Philadelphia. During the period of the royal government, the assembly still retained influenc long years, they ventured on nothing that could displease royalty or the people. The territory of Massachusetts was by the charter vastly enlarged. On the south, it embraced Plymouth colony and the Elizabeth Islands; on the east, it included Maine and all beyond it to the Atlantic; on the north, it was described as swept by the St. Lawrence —the fatal gift of a wilderness, for the conquest and defence of which Massachusetts expended more treasure, and lost more of her sons, than all the En
north of the Potomac. Years before the Pilgrims anchored within Cape Cod, the Roman church had been planted, by missionaries from France, in the eastern moiety of Maine; and Le Caron, an unambi- 1615, 1616. tious Franciscan, the companion of Champlain, had penetrated the land of the Mohawks, had passed to the north into the huntiver can be heard calling for revenge.—I place a stone on their graves, said Pieskaret, that no one may move their bones. With greater sincerity, the Abenakis of Maine, touched by the charities of Silleri, had solicited missionaries. Conversion to Catholic Christianity would establish their warlike tribes as a wakeful barrier 1 and missionaries for the boundless west. The request was eagerly granted; and Gabriel 1656 Dreuillettes, the same who carried the cross through the forests of Maine, and Leonard Gareau, of old a missionary among the Hurons, were selected as the first religious envoys to a land of sacrifices, shadows, and deaths. The canoes ar

For a season, hostilities in Aug. 11. Maine were suspended by a treaty of peace with the Abenakis; but, in less than a year, solely through by D'Iberville and Castin. Thus the frontier of French dominion was extended into the heart of Maine; and Acadia was yet, for a season, secured to the countrymen of De Monts and Champlain. In thf the eastern moiety of Newfoundland, France retained the whole coast and adjacent islands, from Maine to beyond Labrador and Hudson's Bay, besides Canada and the valley of the Mississippi. But the is now New Brunswick? or had France still a large territory on the Atlantic between Acadia and Maine? And what were the bounds of the territory of the Five Nations, which the treaty appeared to re

History need not stop to tell what charities cheered them on their journey, what towns were closed against them by Roman Catholic magistrates, or how they entered Frankfort on the Chap XXIV.} Maine, two by two, in solemn procession, singing spiritual songs. As they floated down the Maine, and 1733 between the castled crags, the vineyards, and the white-walled towns that adorn the banks of the Rhine, their conversation, amidst hymns and prwas unanimously resolved by them, in the absence of directions from England, not to engage in the scheme.
