'U is andent lord of La SiilleVwas the (riend aiid com^nion of Godiicy of Bouilkm, and of Raymond, Count of Thoulouse, of Robert, Duke of Xor-au n iy , and other noted leadersof the Croi-aei. He was himself a noble and brilliant tp ir i^ « hero inarms, one of the boldest of the &ild a t the aeige ^ Nice, and of Anti- ' adi. He 6 ll btfore Jerusalem, and his awotd waa borne back to France by one of his eempaninns in arms, and hung in lusown court of the boy-king, notwithstanding the strenuous efforts made to keep it in check and eradicate it. At this very time the -Prince of Conde and Coligny were taking measures to ^found a Protestant empire in the New World, to be an asylum for the poor oppresed Huguenots of France. Coligny was the prime mover in this enterprise, and he obtained of the youthful Charles the necessary authority for his purpose. An eiqiedition under an experienced commander was soon projected, to examine localities and select a aite for the new colony. Not only in Paris, but throughout Franco this enterprise was the subject of intense interest and curiosity. Numbers of the youthful nobility, incited by a thirst .for adventure, flocked to join the expedition; and near the cloae of the winter 15C2, the*liUle squadron «nder command of John Ribault, who was himself a warm Protestant, set sail for Ameri. ca. With this tru n of adventurers went a youthful artist by the name of James Morgan, whom superior genius had raised to celebrity in the refined envies of the French capital. The Prince of Conde was one of the early patrons of this a r t, and had introduced him to the notice of Coligny both as a skillfull painter, and an ardent Protestant. This introduction occurred a t the house of a mutual fnend, and there, that same evening, the young artist met for the first time Mary Momey,the lovely maiden of La Salle. Often thrown together in society, a mutual attachment was formed, and Mary turned away from),her high-born suitors to the poor youth whose only endoirment was genius, and whose nobility was of the heart. I t was not an attachment, however, to win the favor of the haughty old Count, her grandfather, whose decaying fortunes called for a wealthy alliance for the heiress of La Salle. But his chateau was leagues away among the Cevennes, and Mary’s secret was hidden, even from her friends in Paris. To Him alone from whom she supplicated blessings on the dangerous enterprise, did she acknowledge that her heart had gone forth upon the stormy ocean. tke iin t lord of U SaUe's. The loiil, ^ dwdler a t the chateau a t theperi- •d « t whidi we write, resembled his great aaceetor only in name and liuth. He was the Count Robert of reduced estate; and Lis religio^ like his ancestral domain, had been narrowed by circumstances. He waa a most faigotcd Catholic, parUsan of the C^MSS, and. one w k n - th e Vishops had trmted to keep the aeedsof Protestantism from taking root in h» native vaHey. His widowed daughter, the Lady Momey, dwelt with him a t the ch^teai^ and was like him-aelf devoted to the ancient religion of France.

CFAFTER n . Early the ensuing summer Maiy forsook the gay city, and returned to her mountiun home. For three years she had dwelt amid the intoxicatii^ pleasures of the French capital—three eventful years in the history of France, as well as in her own life-histoiy. She had witnessed the obsequies of one kh^ and the coronation of another; had been a fi«quent and ever welcome guest a t the assemblies of the gay Queen Regent, and a bvorite of the proudest courtiers. Now she carried back with her to the retirement of her native hills a heart as uncorrupted by pleasure and h overflowing with aweetness as the wild rose of the Cevennes. All the retuners of the castle, with the neighboring peasantry, flocked together to obtain sight of their Mountain Flower, and to bid her welcome. Would she recognize the old servants who had lecher pony over the steep places when the little maiden wished to see the sun rise from the rugged peaks, o A ic poor women and «^ldren to whom she used to carry her little baskets of food or fruit from week or w^k—they asked themselves, and asked one another. Maiy had forgotten none of them, and had a kind word for them a ll; and when all had been greeted, and she inquired after some whom she did not see there, t ^ weak or feeble who could not climb the castle-hill like the others, some, too, who had lai.l off tiie gannents of earthly weakness and pain during her long absence, thm was not a dry eye in the multitude, nor a heart that did not invoke a blesrang upon the noble maiden. Three years of such political convulsion as had bM agitating France, and indeed all Europe, had not failed of its effects on the minds of the Cevennes peasantry.* Teachers of the great doctrinea of the Reformation had dropped the forbidden lessons in all the valleys of the Rhone, even within sound of the chateau whose lord had pledged himself to an emftassador of the Pope to root out every weed of Protestantism in his district. As well might an astronomer pfomise to bind by planetary law ' those strange, free orbs that come and go as the Great First Cause directeth, unrecognized byTscience, as for mortals to seek to bind .t te free pulsations of human opinion, or hu> man will.' While Count Robert and his political friends were loudly reproaching John Calvin and his hecelical doctrines, half of the retunen on his own estate were eating meat Friday and turning away from the ordinancesof the Papal Church, to the more spiritual te a c ]|||n of the.Refonn-ers. " The &ct was not long in comii^ to light, and a furious storm of rage mingled with threats of direful gpnishment waa the result. Those upon whom the weight of the Count's wrath fell, plead the king’a pennission to worship as they pleased beyond the limits of the towns—A privilege which coaid not well be exceeded by those dwellera among the mountains. And thenceforward their meetings were not held in secret as a t first, a-hen they dreaded the anger of their lor4 was a Ix^, not old enough to know his own mind upon the subject. One warm midsummer day came the t i. dings that an assembly on the other side of the cliffs had been rudely broken up the previous evening, and the preacher carried off by armed men. The old steward of the chateau brought the news himself from the village, and his venerable form trembled with rage and indignation as he gave the intelligence to the Count, whose cool reception of it only exasperated the old man the more. “Count Robert,” he skid, “we were boys together! My father served yours bithful-ly. In the last days of his life he exhorted me never to leave the service of his master’s house. I rememt»red h is exhortation, and have heeded it until my head is as white as the clifib in winter. I would gladly die here now, and be buried upon the banks of the Little Rhone; but old as I am, and unfit for new service, I will leave behind my beautiful France and go with the suffering Huguenots, an exile to the New World, sooner than remain here without liberty to worship God as my own conscience guides me P’ “Dear old Henri,” exclaimed Mary Mor-ney who had been a tearful listener tb the foregoing, “i too am Protestant, and their lot ■hall be mine for life or for death! ” and she took the hand of the lUthfiil servant a« she spoke. Had an earthquake opened the earth before them, greater consternation could not have seized upon the minds of Count Robert and his daughter. Lady Mimey. She a Protestant, their lovely, charming child! She one of that ignominious, despised sect, whom the Churcli and all its faithful adherents were in league to destroy, notwithstanding the fair words of their boy-king. No, their ears must have deceived them. Their gentle Mary was only moved a t the sight of old Henri’s distress. She could never witness the grief even of a servant, without emotion. Thus they interpreted words to the aged steward who stood before them now, with tears running down his furrowed cheeks, but with every trace of anger and excitement removed from his calm, benignant countenance. “No, mother, grand-pere, yon are mistaken,” she aaid in reply to their wor.la, “I am in heart and aoul a Protestant! I have renounced the errors of the Romish religion, and accepted the doctrines of the Reformation.” “So may the anger of the sunts, and the anathemas of the Holy Church”— “Stay ! stay fhther,” solemnly iaterposed Lady Momey, whom a conflict of feeling was near overwhelming. “You shall not invoke evil on the head of my child! Though she have been led astray into the paths of error, I will do penance for her soul, and it ahall not be counted with those of heretics.” “Led astrav, did you say, daughter? Yes, truly, she has been led astray; and tchohas dmeit? Answer mo truly, Mary, my child, who has been your teacher in this strange doctrine?” •^The Spirit of Truth, dear grand-pere,” she replied meekly, but solemnly and firmly; “the same Spirit who has taught old Henri here, and is teaching thousands of poor souls elsewhere, throughout all Europe.” “Now let thy servant depart in peace,for mine eyes have seen thy salvation,” was the fervant ejiculkt>on of the old steward, as he left the apartment; and his heart was moved to earnest prayer that the Shepherd would cany tenderly in his bosom, this pre-dous lamb of the fold.

David Canada, with William Shaw, Robert Moulton and Edward Cobum, all of Salem, Mass., bought of William More for £ ‘23,100 acres (lot 16) near Little river, in Windham, now Hampton, June 21, 1709. Persons of these names settled iathis part of the town ?some years later, but it is doubtful whether it was the David Canada above named who was the first settler of Hampton. Mr. Jonathan Clark says it was Isaac Canada, whose record is given below, who was the first settler, which we are inclined to doubt. That a Canada was one of the earliest settlers, if not the earliest, is evident, for the settlement in this part of the town was a t first called '‘Canada” or “Kennedy,” and after that “Windham Village,” long before it took the name of Hampton. W e give such records of the Canada family as we can find, which are rather meagre. 1. David Canada m. Margaret liambert, Nov. 15,1718. He d. Nov. 18, 1732; hU wid. probably m. Nathaniel Phillips.

FaicsD Weaver: Ify nxjithrf li a snV scriber for your JoraaAi,- andso piaiied li she with the paper that she woUd m without it on any account. When I was a boy and lived in Scotland, twenty-five years ago, a poor, forlorn looking man would come into my grandfother’e bous^ take a scat by the broad, open fireplace, and partake of the hoqiitality Itam-ished him; he wsa then about fifty yeaia of age, thin in flesh and poorly, thinly clad; he came oncc a year, and genenlly early in the spring; he was a silent but a welcome visitor; for years be had come there, would sit and warm his thin, poor hands over the evening fire, and would say nothmg except to tell my auat to “put in a. little moce tea,” or to “make it strong.” He wore a coat, and but one, and that was completely covered with dame; how I would think the cold, bleak winds must pierce and chill Ua emaciated firame. We knew not who ha waa nor from whence he came; we looked upon his sad countenance, we knew hie ia-nocenee, and we pitied him. The school children would stare at bimf and he was known by u* all as the ‘Sild darned man.” Nearly a quarter of a century has past since then, and the school children that thea stared or laughed or pitied him are scattered over all parts of the earth, but none of them, I think, have entirely forgottea the “old darned aiaii.” One day last we?k my eyea chanced to glance upon an article in one of the d ty papeia which read in thia wiae: “The Old Damed Man, the eoceatrie pedeetrian who, for the hwt half eentaiy, haa traveled centini nally through Windhaas county, Ct., Rhode Island, aad tha weatem part of Massachusetts, backward* and forwards with the ceaseleasnesa of Oi» Timxs.—Wahave been ahowna c a ff of the “Pheniz; or Windham BeraM,” t f 8atard«r> l>ee. 7 ,17f3—a av en ^^M te aUL I t ia a weekly paper, printed in W in f ta ^ Cobn., when that waa the county seal. l l j a about half aa large aa the daily ilriated oncoarae laperof , ___ coarae paper of a veeniib tiM. l u fonign nawa iaaiari* time BMntha oM.

The identical coat in which he was to have been married he continued to wear as lorg ss he lived,- and the patches and dama with' which it waa Covered, os account of occaeioaal rente, gave rise to the name by which he was At familiarly known—“Old D a r ^ Coat.” He preserved the ring which hi* bride waa to wear, and wore it himself till it wsa almost imbedded in the flesh of hia finger; and, as he wandered alon^ the road, hie moet frequent attitude waa with his ^ « a fixed upon the ring, aaparently wnppM in the deepest study.
