When Queen Elizabeth gave a charter to a first not very successful English East India company, France, under Richelieu, strug- Chap.

Didlvinists William and Emeric Caen, the hundred associates,—Richelieu, Champlain, Razilly, and 1627 opulent merchants, being of the number,—by a charter from Louis XIII., obtained a grant of New France, and, after the restoration of Quebec by its English 1632 conquerors, entered upon the government of their province. Its limits embraced specifically the whole basin of the St. Lawrence, and of such other rivers in New Champlain, Voyages de. France as flowed directly into the sea; they included

If the issue had depended on the condition of the colonies, it could hardly have seemed doubtful. The French census for the North American continent, in 1688, showed but eleven thousand two hundred and forty-nine persons—scarcely a tenth part of the English population on its frontiers; about a twentieth part of English North America. West of Montreal, the principal French posts, and 1688 those but inconsiderable ones, were at Frontenac, at Mackinaw, and on the Illinois. At Niagara, there was a wavering purpose of maintaining a post, but no permanent occupation. So weak were the garrisons, that English traders, with an escort of Indians, had ventured even to Mackinaw, and, by means of the Senecas, obtained a large share of the commerce of the lakes. French diplomacy had attempted to pervade 1687 th

This is taxing them more agreeably to their own constitution and laws. Tribute was therefore levied on America by means of its consumption. That the British creditor might be secure, lands in the plantations were, by act of par- Chap. XXIII.} liament, made liable for debts. Every branch of consumption was, as far as practicable, secured to English 5 Geo.

In the land of furs, it was found that hats were well made: the London company of hatters remonstrated; and their craft was protected by an act 5 Geo. II. c. 22. forbidding hats to be transported from one plantation to another. The proprietors of English iron works were jealous of American industry; and, in 1719, the 1719. house of commons declared, th
