and again in 1798. In 1789 he was appointed adjutant-general of the State, and commissioner of revolutionary claims in 1791. A member of the United States Senate from 1791 till 1797, Burr was a conspicuous Democratic leader in that body; and in the Presidential election in 1800 he and Thomas Jefferson had an equal number of votes in the electoral college. The House of Representatives decided the choice in favor of Jefferson on the thirty-sixth ballot, and Burr became Vice-President. In July, 1804, he killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel; and the next year he undertook his mad and mysterious enterprise in the West, which resulted in his trial for treason. In March, 1805, Burr's term of office as Vice-President ended, and he descended to private life an utterly ruined man. But his ambition and his love of intrigue were as strong as ever, and he conceived schemes for personal aggrandizement and pecuniary gain. It was the general belief, at that time, in the United States, that the

and, going to Tangier, demanded an explanation of the Emperor of Morocco, who disclaimed the act and made a suitable apology. Then he proceeded to bring Tripoli to terms. Soon afterwards the Philadelphia fell into the hands of the Tripolitans. Little further of much interest occurred until early in 1804, when the boldness of the Americans in destroying the Philadelphia in the harbor of Tripoli greatly alarmed the Bey (see Philadelphia, the). For a while Preble blockaded his port; and in July, 1804, he entered the. harbor (whose protection lay in heavy batteries mounting 115 guns) with his squadron. The Tripolitans also had in the harbor nineteen gunboats, a brig, two schooners, and some galleys, with 25,000 soldiers on the land. A sheltering reef afforded further protection. These formidable obstacles did not dismay Preble. On Aug. 3 he opened a heavy cannonade and bombardment from his gunboats, which A Street scene in Tripoli. alone could get near enough for effective servi

. This State, as well as New York, and possibly others, inserted in their resolutions of ratification a declaration that the powers vested by the Constitution in the United States of America, might be resumed by them when they should deem it necessary to prevent injury or oppression. Early in the nineteenth century the doctrine of secession, characterized as treason and rebellion in 1861, was openly advocated in Massachusetts. Col. Pickering, a member of General Washington's cabinet, in July, 1804, wrote as follows: The principles of our revolution point to the remedy—a separation. That this can be accomplished, and without spilling one drop of blood, I have no doubt. * * * I do not believe in the practicability of a long continued union. A Northern Confederacy would unite congenial characters and present a fairer prospect of public happiness; while the Southern States, having a similarity of habits, might be left to manage their own affairs in their own way. If a separation were

and, in order to perfect his choir in so delightful a part of their devotional duty, he constantly devoted one evening in the week to their instruction. We have before noticed his Scripture Catechism, out of which he regularly examined his young auditors, and impressed upon their minds the importance of attention to the sacred duties of religion. See in various points of his history a Sketch of the Life of the late Dr. J. Taylor, of Norwich, from the Universal Theological Magazine for July 1804, afterwards enlarged and printed in a distinct form by Messrs. R. and A. Taylor. In 1751 appeared a very learned and valuable treatise, entitled, The Scripture Doctrine of Atonement examined, first in relation to the Jewish Sacrifices, and then to the Sacrifice of our blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. In this work the author first inquires into the original meaning, design, and efficacy of sacrifices, which he shews to be, in all respects, the same as that of prayer and praise, o

The second church edifice was torn down in 1840. The succeeding structure, built on the same site, was burnt Jan. 1, 1866, and the present house is its successor. In this year thirty dollars were drawn for the purpose of encouraging singing. The following memorandum was made on the Precinct Records: July 1804, the Meeting House belonging to the Rev. Thaddeus Fiske's Society was raised and no man hurt thereby. The record book of the Northwest Parish of Cambridge Singing Society contains the Constitution of the Society, with this preamble: As music constitutes one very essential part of public devotion, and as its spirit is become something languid, and its genius seems about to withdraw; we, the subscribers, being fully inspired with these ideas, do form ourselves into a Society for the purpo

Mayhew Folger, had his ship seized in the same way, but more fortunate than Captain Coffin, he recovered both ship and $44,000 damages. This Captain Folger was the one who in 1809 discovered the lost mutineers of the English ship Bounty on Pitcairn's Island in the Pacific, where they had remained unmolested for nineteen years. In seventh month, or July, 1804, Captain Coffin, with his family, removed to Boston, where he engaged in a profitable commercial business. This was the first time Lucretia or her sisters had ever left Nantucket, even for a visit, but, although she never returned to the island to live, Lucretia always regarded this first home with an affection different from that given to any other, and ever after Nantucket way became household law.
