This refusal gave rise to sundry fruitless remonstrances addressed by Mr. Mason to the cabinet of St. James. We have related the career of the Oreto or Florida, which was the first successor of the Sumter—her departure from England despite the notification of Mr. Adams, her seizure and release at Nassau; then the first apority. The introduction of slavery into or its exclusion from these Territories had been the occasion of all the great parliamentary conflicts between the partisans of the two systems; it was always the same question under the different names of Mason and Dixon's line, squatter sovereignty, and, still more recently, the Crittenden compromise. Shortly after the breaking out of hostilities, Congress, not being yet willing to decide it, had constituted the three new Territories of Colorado, Neva

But England, if it annexed to Massachusetts the burden of the unconquered desert east and north of the Piscataqua, held itself bound by no previous compact to concede to New Hampshire any Chap. XIX.} charter whatever. The right to the soil, which Samuel Allen, of London, had purchased of Mason, was recognized as valid; and Allen himself received the royal commission to govern a people whose territory, including the farms they had redeemed from the wilderness, he claimed as his own. His son-in-law Usher, of Boston, formerly an adherent of Andros, and a great speculator in lands, was appointed, under him, lieutenant-governor. Such was the English revolution of 1688. It valued the uncertain claims of an English merchant more than the liberties of a province. Indeed, that revolutio
