ing vessels began depredations on the coast of Massachusetts, under an order issued by Admiral Cochrane to destroy the seaport towns and devastate the country. At Wareham, on Buzzard's Bay, they destroyed stroyed vessels and other property valued at $40. 000. In the same month fifty armed men in five large barges entered the Saco River, Maine, and destroyed property to the amount of about $20,000 New Bedford, and Fair Haven opposite, were threatened by British cruisers. Eastport and Castine, in Maine, were captured by the British. In July, 1814/un>, Sir Thomas M. Hardly sailed from Halifax with a considerable land and naval force. to execute the order of Cochrane. The country from Passamaquoddy Bay to the Penobscot River speedily passed under British rule, and remained so until the close of the war. After capturing Eastport, Hardy sailed westward, and threatened Portsmouth and other places. An attack on Boston was confidently expected. It was almost defenceless, and offered a

Castine, capture of A British fleet, consisting of four 74-gun ships, two frigates, two sloops of war, and one schooner, with ten transports, the latter bearing almost 4,000 troops, sailed from Halifax Aug. 26, 1814, under the command of Lieut.-Gen. Sir John Cope Sherbrooke, governor of Nova Scotia, assisted by Maj.-Gen. Gerard Gosselin. The fleet was in command of Rear-Admiral Edward Griffith. The destination of the armament was the Penobscot River, with a design to take possession of tassamaquoddy Bay. Sherbrooke intended to stop and take possession of Machias, but, learning that the corvette John Adams, 24 guns, had entered the Penobscot, he hastened to overtake her. On the morning of Sept. 1 they arrived in the harbor of Castine. There was a small American force there, under Lieutenant Lewis, occupying a little battery. Lewis, finding resistance would be in vain, spiked the guns, blew up the battery, and fled. About 600 British troops landed and took quiet possession

ristianity was first introduced among the natives of that region. He gained great influence over them. During his absence in 1688, his establishment was pillaged by the English, and he became their bitter foe. He taught the Indians around him the use of fire-arms, and he frequently co-operated with them in their attacks on the northeastern frontier. In 1696, with 200 Indians, he assisted Iberville in the capture of the fort at Pemaquid. In 1706-7 he assisted in the defence of Port Royal, and was wounded. He lived in America thirty years, when he returned to France, leaving Fort Castine and the domain around it to his half-breed son and successor in title. The young baron was really a friend to the English, but, being at the head of the Penobscot Indians, and suspected of being an enemy, he was surprised and captured in 1721,. taken to Boston, and imprisoned several months. His name is perpetuated in the town of Castine, at which place slight traces of his fort are yet visible.

Hampden, action at. When the British had taken possession of Castine, Me., a land and naval force was sent up the Penobscot River to capture or destroy the corvette John Adams, which had fled up the river to the town of Hampden. The commander of the John Adams, Capt. C. Morris, was warned of his danger, and he notified Gen. John Blake, commander of the 10th division of Massachusetts militia. The British force consisted of two sloopsof-war, a tender, a large transport, and nine launches, house, tore up the Bible and psalm-books in it, and demolished the pulpit and pews. As at Havrede-Grace, they wantonly butchered cattle and hogs, and compelled the selectmen to sign a bond to guarantee the delivery of vessels then at Hampden at Castine. The speedy return of peace cancelled the bond. The total loss of property at Hampden by the hands of the marauders, exclusive of a very valuable cargo on board the schooner Commodore Decatur, was estimated at $44,000. When a committee at Hamp

In 1865, when over 100 years of age, he received an invitation from the city authorities of Bangor to join in the celebration of the Fourth of July there. He accepted it. A revenue-cutter conveyed him from Castine to Bangor. The guns of Fort Knox, on the Penobscot, gave him a salute of welcome as he passed. At Bangor multitudes rushed to get a glimpse of the veteran as he was escorted through the streets. Senator Hamlin delivered an oration on that occ

m it. An expedition against it was committed to Iberville and Bonaventure, who anchored at Pentagoet, Aug. 7, 1696, where they were joined by the Baron de Castine, with 200 Indians. These auxiliaries went forward in canoes, the French in their vessels, and invested the fort on the 14th. Major Chubb was in command. To a summons from Iberville to surrender, the major replied, If the sea were covered with French vessels and the land with Indians, yet I would not give up the fort. Some skirmishing occurred that day, and, having completed a battery, the next day Iberville threw some bombs into the fort, which greatly terrified the garrison. Castine sent a letter, assuring the garrison that, if the place should be taken by assault, they would be left to the Indians, who would give no quarter; he had seen the King's letter to that effect. The garrison, compelling Chubb to surrender, were sent to Boston, to be exchanged for French and Indian prisoners, and the costly fort was demolished.
