    Harvard College was founded in Williamson's Maine, vol. The commission of Andros described the territory over which he was to preside in the words of the duke's charter, thus in terms constituting him governor over "Hudson's river, and all the land from the west side of Connecticut river to the east side of Delaware bay," disregarding alike the boundary which had been fixed upon with Connecticut by the king's commissioners, and the duke's own solemn grant of the territory of New Jersey made ten years previous, to Lord Berkley and Sir George Carteret. During the period of the civil war in England the commerce of the Dutch was in a prosperous condition, and in the time of the commonwealth they had become formidable rivals of the English.

    There was no river or other natural object between the Connecticut and the Hudson, which could be referred to as a proper boundary, and for these reasons there appears to have been an imperious necessity of adopting some such comprehensive description as that found in the charter. The government of Massachusetts had always claimed that the province extended much further north than the present limits of that state, and included a large portion of the territory now in New Hampshire and Vermont; and, in accordance with that claim, had early in the eighteenth century made grants of land on both sides of Connecticut river within such territory. At the trial, his neighbors testified that he was a quiet, peaceable, "fair-conditioned "man, but the Chief Justice over-rode all the testimony, declaring him to be the " worst man in the world "—surely a great distinction in times that knew many evil men—and sent the jury out with an open intimation as to the kind of verdict that was expected from them. Another new-comer, Roger Williams, soon clashed with the intolerant authorities, and the over-bold innovator was driven out of the colony to found a more liberal one of his own. Read even to-day his report of the expedition against the French and the use of the friendly Maquas by Governor Winthrop is not bad reporting when one considers that reporting had yet to be developed or even inaugurated.

    The Dutch commercial rivals of the English- Hostile feeling towards them of King Charles and his brother the Duke of York - They resolve upon a secret expedition for the conquest of New Netherland - Grant of it to the Duke - Is not described as New Netherland, but in vague terms as English territory and why - Commissioners appointed by the King to Superintend the expedition and visit the New England coloniesThey determine upon a line twenty miles east of the Hudson, as the boundary between the Duke's patent and Connecticut, which is afterwards confirmed by the crown. In the the moft apparent ftriking Differences in thofe dated 1 7 7 1 are thefe in the white Water Letters under the Signers Names appear good Bills the T plainly, when held up to the Light, to be wrought in the Texture of the Paper itfelf thefe Letters appear to fink equally both on the Faces and Backs of the Bills, and are equally tranfparent, whereas in the forged Bills they appear to fink into the Paper only on the Face of them, as if done with a ftamp, after the Paper was made, and appear a little raifed on the Backs of the Bills. The council of Plymouth by their deed of indenture, duly executed under their common seal, and bearing date March 19,conveyed to " Sir Henry Roswell, Sir John Young, Thomas Southcott, John Humphreys, John Endicott, and Simon Whitcomb, their heirs and assigns and their associates forever, all that part of New England in America," lying between the Merrimack and Charles rivers and three miles to the south of Charles river, " and lying and being within the space of three English miles to the northward of the said river, called the Monomack alias Merrimack, or to the northward of any and every part thereof, and all lands and hereditaments whatsoever lying within the limits aforesaid north and south in latitude and in length and longitude all the breadth aforesaid, throughout the mainland there from the Atlantic and western sea and ocean on the east part to the south sea on the west parts. There was no river or other natural object between the Connecticut and the Hudson, which could be referred to as a proper boundary, and for these reasons there appears to have been an imperious necessity of adopting some such comprehensive description as that found in the charter. The former grants " of forty years " were undoubtedly those of Massachusetts. This also was denied.

To John De Noyellis, Esquire. book

They were, in the main, of the mass of people. THE state of Vermont, as an independent commonwealth, struggled into existence through a double revolution. The charter of King Charles, by virtue of whichl the territory of Vermont was afterwards claimed by the rulers of New York to constitute a part of that province, had been issued to the Duke of York, a few months previously, in contemplation of such conquest.

A small community of not more than a few thousand was more easily influenced than the population of the thickly settled country whence they came. American Statistics, vol. Hume, vol. At least, it cannot be said that he feared to go to gaol, nor can it be denied that he went with courage and with fortitude.

His aim is to embody facts, and to state then with his views in intelligible language, without making any pretensions to literary merit. And this treaty agreement by the Dutch must be conclusive to show that New York could have no ground whatever for claiming to extend eastward to Connecticut river by virtue of succeeding to the rights of New Netherland.

Harris begins by declaring that his purpose is to furnish the country once a month with an account of "such considerable things as have arrived unto our notice," a promise calculated to arouse the interest of the dwellers in the wilderness, who must have been hungry for news of their fellow-men.

Phelps, of Townshend; Henry Hall, Esq. Though the London Gazette was the only paper published while the licensing act was in force, the keen interest in the news was satisfied at the coffee-houses in London and by the news-letters throughout the country.

Several English settlements had also been made on the easterly portion of Long Island, under the protection, of either the Connecticut, or the New Haven governments.

They were complained of as intruders at the north by Connecticut, and at the south by Lord Baltimore, the proprietor of Maryland. A man of education, he had been sent to jail for his religious beliefs, and with others of his faith had sought refuge in Holland.

Thompson's Long Island, vol. The former grants " of forty years " were undoubtedly those of Massachusetts. Spooner, Paul, -- - " cc Stark, John, - ".

Land Laws, vol. As a consequence of this retrospective interpretation of the order in council, they declared that all the grants which had been made by Wentworth, as governor of New Hampshire, having been of lands not within his province, were absolutely null and void.

Within a comparatively few years of the Mayflower's sailing, there had come, following the revival of learning and the development of the art of printing, an impetus toward freedom of expression such as the previous centuries had never known.

To this class belonged those of Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, and also some of the more southern colonies. A line had indeed been agreed upon at Hartford, inby treaty between the Dutch governor and the New England commissioners, which had been ratified by the States General of Holland, and was admitted by the Dutch to be their eastern boundary.

This conduct of the New York government towards the settlers and claimants under New Hampshire, was the sole cause of the long and bitter controversy which followed, and which ended in the separation of the territory from that province.

The greatest of all liberties, it is said, is the liberty of opinion. InHenry Hudson had sailed up the river which bears his name, and as early as about the yearthe Dutch had established themselves at Albany. A year later he was printing books and employing printers at what he called the London Printing House.

Winthrop of Connecticut with a body of volunteers from that province, appeared before New Amsterdam and made a formal demand of Gov. Expeditions were sent up the Hudson, and also to the South river, and on the 24th of September Fort Orange, now Albany, capitulated, and the Dutch possessions on the Delaware were captured on the first of October, by which the conquest of New Netherland was completed.

In the same year the first fire of importance swept away forty-five dwellings and several' large warehouses, but the greatest catastrophe was when King James, on his accession to the throne, took away the charter of the colony and appointed Governor Andros to rule over these sturdy believers in their right—and their ability—to rule themselves.
