De la Motte Cadillac, with a Jesuit mis- Charlevoix, II. 284. sionary and one hundred Frenchmen, was sent to take possession of Detroit. This is the oldest permanent settlement in Michigan. That commonwealth began to be colonized before even Georgia; it is the oldest, therefore, of all the inland states, except, perhaps, Illinois. The country on the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair was esteemed the loveliest in Canada; Nature had lavished on it all her charms—slopes and prairies, plains anith the French. The English flag having been carried triumphantly through the wilderness to the Gulf of Mexico, the sav- Chap XXI.} ages were overawed; and Great Britain established anew claim to the central forests that were soon to be named Georgia. In the next year, a French squadron from the Ha- 1706 vana attempted revenge by an invasion of Charleston; but the brave William Rhett and the governor, Sir Nathaniel Johnson, inspired courage, and prepared defence. The Huguenots, also, pa
y could gather hardly five, or even three, villages in the whole region. Kentucky, after the expulsion of the Shawnees, remained the wide park of the Cherokees. The banished tribe easily fled up the valley of the Cumberland River, to find a vacant wilderness in the highlands of Carolina; and a part of them for years roved to and fro in wildernesses west of the Cherokees.

The whole population of the Five Nations could not have varied much from ten thousand; and their warriors strolled as conquerors from Hudson's Bay to Carolina,—from the Kennebec to

Jealous of the industry of New England, England saw with exultation the increase of its tropical plantations. It was willing, therefore, to check the north, and to favor the south. Hence permission was given to the planters 2 Geo. II. c. XXVIII. and XXXIV. of Carolina, and afterwards of Georgia, to ship their rice directly to any port in Europe south of Cape Finisterre. Hence special restrictions on colonial maritime enterprise; so that when, in imitation of the French 12 Geo. II. c.
