Federals did not succeed in reaching a vessel that their adversaries were building on the Roanoke River, the light draught of which placed it beyond the range of the former's guns: public rumor had represented it as being an ironclad formidably .armed. There was truth in the rumor, and we shall see the vessel in the ensuing year at work under the name of the Albemarle. We shall leave the North Atlantic squadron, which has lost one vessel only, the Sumter—foundered accidentally on the 24th of June—to pass on to the squadron blockading Charleston, and of which Admiral Dahlgren, arrived on the 4th, has just taken the command on the 6th of July. Henceforth it shall not have to fight alone against the formidable works which defend the approaches to Charleston. The Washington Government, taught by experience, has decided to undertake a regular siege of that place, in which the land and sea forces shall render mutual assistance. It has understood that, despite their precious qualities
les River, and five years later the Indian village and church of Natick were formed by him. After his death the church ceased to flourish, grew weaker and weaker by reason of the death of some of its members, and the treacherous persecution of others, until in 1716, threescore and ten years after the commencement of his labors, there was no church, and but few Indians were resident there. From 1637 to 1675, the Indians gave little or no trouble to the Massachusetts settlers; but on the 24th of June of the latter year they opened the terrible King Philip's war by attacking the town of Swanzey. August 22, 1675, the first attack was made upon Lancaster, in which William Flagg, probably the son of Thomas Flagg Thomas Flagg was the proprietor in 1644 of two lots, one being 20 acres in the 1st Great Dividend, next to the Beaver Brook Plowlands. He was eight times chosen one of the Selectmen of the town previous to and including 1687. He lost his left eye by a gunshot accident. Proba

When warrants arrived from England for their apprehension, they 1661 fled across the country to New Haven, where it was esteemed a crime against God to bewray the wanderer or give up the outcast. Yet such diligent search was made for them, that they never were in security. For a time they removed in secrecy from house to house: sometimes concealed themselves in a mill, sometimes in clefts of the rocks by the seaside; and for weeks to- June 24 to Aug 19. gether, and even for months, they dwelt in a cave in the forest. Great rewards were offered for their apprehension; Indians as well as English were urged to scour the woods in quest of their hiding-place, as men hunt for the holes of foxes. When the zeal of the search was nearly over, they retired to a little village on the Sound; till at last they escaped by night to an appointed place of refuge in Hadley, and the solitudes of the most beautiful valley of New England gave shel

In a few days, 1664 Sept 24 Fort Orange, now named Albany, from the Scottish title of the duke of York, quietly surrendered; and the league with the Five Nations was renewed. Early in October, Oct 1 the Dutch and Swedes on the Delaware capitulated; and for the first time the whole Atlantic coast of the old thirteen states was in possession of England. Our country had obtained geographical unity. The dismemberment of New Netherland ensued on June 23, 24 its surrender. The duke of York had already, two months before the conquest, assigned to Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret, both proprietaries of Carolina, the land between the Hudson and the Delaware. In honor of Carteret, the territory, with nearly the same bounds as at present, except on the north, received the name of New Jersey. If to fix boundaries and grant the soil, could constitute a state, the duke of York gave political existence to a commonwealth. Its moral character was mo

June, was busy with its griefs at the abridgment of the old colonial liberties. Increase Mather, the agent, June 9.

I seek not yours, but you, said Increase Mather; I am willing Some Few Remarks, 1702, p. 20. to wait for recompense in another world; and the general court, after prolonging the validity of the old laws, adjourned to October.
