t boy, was sent to Harvard College, where he took his first degree in 1742, and his second in 1745. In this latter year (after having meanwhile taught a school in York) he went to Portland in Maine (then Falmouth), to be the schoolmaster of the town. This was the letter from the minister of the town inviting him:— Falmouth,him that he was a man of piety, integrity, and honor, and that his favorite reading was history and poetry. He had married Tabitha, daughter of Samuel Bragdon, of York. Their eldest son, Stephen (3), was born in 1750, inheriting the name and the farm; and in 1773 he married Patience Young, of York. He represented his town in thYork. He represented his town in the Massachusetts legislature for eight years, and his county for several years after as senator. For fourteen years (1797-1811) he was judge of the Court of Common Pleas, and is remembered as a man of sterling qualities, great integrity, and sound common-sense. His second child, Stephen (4), born in Gorham in 1776, graduated at H

Yet the nature of Gorges wahip were extended to all inhabitants; and the whole eastern country gradually, yet reluctantly, submitted to the necessity of the change. When the claims of the proprietaries in England were urged before Cromwell, many inhabitants of the towns of York, Kittery, Wells, Saco, and 1656 Cape Porpoise, yet not a majority, remonstrated on the ground of former experience. To sever them from Massachusetts would be to them the subverting of all civil order. Documents in Maine Hist Coll. 296. 299.
d was reluctant to hang any but republicans. His love of placid enjoyments and of ease continued to the end. On the last morning of his life, he bade his attendants open the curtains of his bed, and the windows of his bed-chamber, that he might once more see the sun.

He desired absolution; For God's sake, send for a Catholic priest; but checked himself, adding, it may expose the duke of York to danger. James' II. Memoirs, i. 747. He pardoned all his enemies, no doubt sincerely. The queen sent to beg forgiveness for any offences. Alas, poor woman, she beg my pardon! he replied; I beg hers with all my heart; take back to her that answer. Dalrymple, book i. p. 66. He expressed some regard for his brother, his children, his mistresses. Do not leave poor Nelly Gwyn to starve, was almost his last commission. Burnet, II. 284. So, too, Evelyn, III. 132. Such was the le
artford and New Haven; and, as the commissioners were desirous to make friends in the other colonies, they avoided all angry collisions, gave no countenance to a claim advanced by the duke of Hamilton to a large tract of territory in the colony, and, in arranging the limits of New York, though the charter of Clarendon's son-in-law extended to the River Connecticut, they established the boundary, on the main, in conformity with the claims of Connecticut itself. Long Island went to the duke of York. Satisfied with the harmony which they had secured by Chap. XII.} 1664. attempting nothing but for the interests of the colony, the commissioners saw fit to praise to the monarch the dutifulness and obedience of Connecticut, which was set off with the more lustre by the contrary deportment of Massachusetts.

; he despised gravity, as, what indeed it often is, the affectation of dulness; and thought it no condescension to charm by drollery. Himself without any veneration for prejudice or prescriptive usage, he never could estimate the difficulty of abrogating a form or overcoming a prejudice. His mind regarded purposes and results; and he did not so much defy appearances as rest ignorant of their power; an indifference, which, in some respects, was an immorality. Desiring to exclude the duke of York from the throne, no delicacy of sentiment restrained him from proposing the succession to the uncertain issue of an abandoned woman, who had once been mistress to the king; and he saw no cruelty in urging Charles II. to a divorce from a confiding wife, who had no blemish but barrenness. The same want of common feeling, joined to a surprising mobility, left Shaftesbury in ignorance of the energy of religious convictions.

ia, 27 Nov., 1762. No one was more bent on reducing the colonies to implicit obedience than the blunt, humane, and honest, but self-willed Duke of Bedford, who, on the sixth day of September, sailed for France with full powers to negotiate a peace. Scarcely was he gone, before Egremont, Pitt's successor, desiring, like Pitt, to conduct the negotiation from ministry to ministry, limited the powers of Bedford. The angry duke remonstrated to Bute, who just then, in company with the Duke of York, had been decorated with the order of the Garter, at a very full chapter, where Temple sat directly by his side in silent sullenness. The prime minister incurred the enmity of Egremont, by promising to ask of the cabinet a restitution to Bedford of his full powers. Are you sure of the cabinet's concurrence? asked Rigby. The king will be obeyed, replied Bute, and will talk to the two secre- chap. XIX.} 1762. taries on their scruples. And it was so. The young man of three-and-twenty subd

To a modification of the duties I would not have been unfavorable; but a total repeal of them is an act of versatility, fatal to the dignity and jurisdiction of parliament, the evil consequences of which no declaratory act can avert or qualify. Wiffen's House of Russell, II., 571. The House of Lords divided. For subduing the colonies, if need be, by sword or fire, there appeared sixty-one, including the Duke of York, and several of the bishops; in favor of the repeal there were seventy-three; but adding the voices of those absent peers, who voted by proxy, the numbers were one hundred and five against seventy-one.

o enjoy them with exceeding gusto. He visited all the bar-rooms in town, pitching into "old French" as though he were a familiar acquaintance, treating every one who would take a "smile" with him. He seemed to be liberal enough not to spend all his money in one house, but to distribute it generally. His enjoyment was finally interrupted by his asking a free negro to take a game of cards with him. The negro informed on him, but too late for arrest, as he had taken the hint and left for parts unknown. Suspicion was immediately aroused, and he was pursued several miles, but he made good his escape. We have since learned that he stole a horse at Pacolet, in this District, and one over in York. He is a man about thirty years of age, five feet eight or nine inches high, quick spoken, and has a rascally countenance. He had on, when he left, a black suit of clothes, and a black low- crown hat. He probably would weigh one hundred and seventy pounds. Look out for him, everybody.
