ure also, in the few days of my stay, all the species taken in the lakes and rivers around Albany. Several others have been given me from Lake Superior. Since my return to Boston I have been collecting birds and comparing them with those of Europe. If M. Coulon could obtain for me a collection of European eggs, even the most common, I could exchange them for an admirable series of the native species here. I have also procured several interesting mammals; among others, two species of hares different from those I brought from Halifax, striped squirrels, etc. I will tell you another time something of the collections of Boston and Cambridge, the only ones in the United States which can rival those of Philadelphia. To-day I have made my first attempt at lecturing. Of that, also, I will tell you more in my next letter, when I know how it has been liked. It is no small matter to satisfy an audience of three thousand people in a language with which you are but little familiar. . .

state of things. As soon as I was awake, my husband came to me bringing a small dose of brandy with cracked ice. Drink this, he said, and ask Mrs. Bean [the stewardess] to help you get on your clothes, for you must go up on deck; we shall be at Halifax in a few hours. Magnetized by the stronger will, I struggled with my weakness, and was presently clothed and carried up on deck. Now, I am going for Annie, said Dr. Howe, leaving me comfortably propped up in a safe seat. He soon returned with my dear sister, as helpless as myself. The fresh air revived us so much that we were able to take our breakfast, the first meal we ate on board, in the saloon with the other passengers. We went on shore, however, for a walk at Halifax, and from that time forth were quite able-bodied sea-goers. On the last day before that of our landing, an unusually good dinner was served, and, according to the custom of the time, champagne was furnished gratis, in order that all who dined together might
of New Hampshire till the Revolution. He was colonel of the Fifth New Hampshire regiment of militia. At the outbreak of hostilities, he repaired to Boston and joined General Gage. In 1778, he was proscribed by the general court of New Hampshire, and his property confiscated. Dr. Matthew Thornton, one of the signers of the Declaration, and a busy, prominent politician, thrifty in his graft, purchased Lutwyche's farm, and the ferry has ever since been known as Thornton's. Lutwyche went to Halifax with Lord Howe, was in New York after peace was declared, returned to Nova Scotia, and ended his days there. The father, Edward Lutwyche, came from Radnor, in Wales, and married, in 1727, Thankful Parmiter, who died in 1734. He retired in 1740 to a fine farm of 160 acres in Hopkinton, and died there in 1747. There were two McCartys in Charlestown at the period under review, James and John, and in 1740 Thomas Maccurdy, a stranger, was buried at the town's expense. Of Doch Perkins w

His first lieutenant, Ludlow, was mortally wounded in attempting to repel the hesitating boarders of the Shannon, his head and face being almost hewed to pieces by their cutlasses. They were both buried at Halifax with the honors of war. Soon after, Capt. Crowninshield of Salem volunteered to bring them home at his own expense; they were entombed at Salem with great parade, a eulogy being delivered on the occasion by Judge Story. They were afterwards remBroke was welcomed home with great distinction, and knighted. (He died in 1840.) The Chesapeake was a clumsy, unlucky old frigate, built at Baltimore or Norfolk in 1798, and had always been a source of trouble and expense to this country. From Halifax she was taken to England, broken up, and some of her timbers used in the construction of a grist-mill on a small stream that runs into the river Medway, the best use to which they were ever put The Shannon was used for a long time as an old hulk

at least. Lt. Governor Dudley thus sums up what transpired in the colony during the first eight and a half months after their arrival, in his Letter to the Countess of Lincoln, written March 28, 1631. At the time of the dispersion of which Dudley speaks, when they were unable by reason of sickness to carry their ordnance and baggage soe farr as three leagues vpp Charles riuer, Sir Richard Saltonstall, Sir Richard Saltonstall was son of Samuel, the son of Gilbert Saltonstall, Esq., of Halifax, Yorkshire. He was the first Associate to the six original patentees mentioned in King Charles's charter to the Massachusetts, of March 4, 1628-9.

Parliament, on a true representation of the state of the plantations, must think it their duty to make the royal officers less dependent on the assemblies, which may be easily done by granting to the king the same duties and imposts, that, in the plantations, are usually granted from year to year. But neither the blunt decision of Bedford, nor the arrogant self-reliance of Halifax, nor the restless activity of Charles Townshend, could, of a sudden, sway the system of England in a new direction, or overcome the usages and policy of more than a half century. But new developments were easily given to the commercial and restrictive system. That the colonies might be filled with slaves, who should neither trouble Great Britain with fears of encouraging political independence, nor compete in their industry with British workshops, nor leave their employers the entire secu
