      Quebec, kill the governor, lay waste the town, and then attack Three Rivers and Montreal. * This time, at least, the Iroquois were in deadly earnest. Quebec was wild with terror. The Ursulines and the nuns of the H?tel Dieu took refuge in the strong and extensive building which the Jesuits had just finished, opposite the Parish Church. Its walls and palisades made it easy of defence; and in its yards and court were lodged the terrified Hurons, as well as the fugitive inhabitants of the neighboring settlements. Others found asylum in the fort, and others in the convent of the Ursulines, which, in place of nuns, was occupied by twenty-four soldiers, who fortified it with redoubts, and barricaded the doors and windows. Similar measures of defence were taken at the H?tel Dieu, and the streets of the Lower Town were strongly barricaded. Everybody was in arms, and the Qui vive of the sentries and patrols resounded all night. **THE HURON-IROQUOIS FAMILY.

      [78] "Tous ceux de mes amis qui l'ont vu luy trouve beaucoup d'esprit et un trs-grand sens; il ne parle gure que des choses sur lesquelles on l'interroge; il les dit en trs-peu de mots et trs-bien circonstancies; il distingue parfaitement ce qu'il scait avec certitude, de ce qu'il scait avec quelque mlange de doute. Il avoue sans aucune fa?on ne pas savoir ce qu'il ne scait pas, et quoyque je luy aye ouy dire plus de cinq ou six fois les mesme choses l'occasion de quelques personnes qui ne les avaient point encore entendues, je les luy ay toujours ouy dire de la mesme manire. En un mot je n'ay jamais ouy parler personne dont les paroles portassent plus de marques de vrit."

      Back to your seat! added a third.

      Strange as it may seem, this woman, whose habitual state was one of mystical abstraction, was gifted to a rare degree with the faculties most useful in the practical affairs of life. She had spent several years in the house of her brother-in-law. Here, on the one hand, her vigils, visions, and penances set utterly at nought the order of a well-governed family; while, on the other, she made amends to her impatient relative by able and efficient aid in the conduct of his public and private affairs. Her biographers say, and doubtless with truth, that her heart was far away from these mundane interests; yet her talent for business was not the less displayed. Her spiritual guides were aware of it, and saw clearly that gifts so useful to the world might be made equally useful to the Church. Hence it was that she was chosen Superior 180 of the convent which Madame de la Peltrie was about to endow at Quebec. [14] dire, et je suis assur quils ne diront pas que je lai du


      Two great parties divided the Catholics of France,the Gallican or national party, and the ultramontane or papal party. The first, resting on the Scriptural injunction to give tribute to C?sar, held that to the king, the Lords anointed, belonged the temporal, and to the church the spiritual power. It held also that the laws and customs of the church of France could not be broken at the bidding of the Pope. * The ultramontane party, on the other hand, maintained that the Pope, Christs vicegerent on earth, was supreme over earthly rulers, and should of right hold jurisdiction over the clergy of all Christendom, with powers of appointment and removal. Hence they claimed for him the right of nominating bishops in


      [18] The following is the passage relating to this journey in the remarkable paper above mentioned. After recounting La Salle's visit with the Sulpitians to the Seneca village, and stating that the intrigues of the Jesuit missionary prevented them from obtaining a guide, it speaks of the separation of the travellers and the journey of Galine and his party to the Saut Ste. Marie, where "les Jsuites les congdirent." It then proceeds as follows: "Cependant M{r.} de la Salle continua son chemin par une rivire qui va de l'est l'ouest; et passe Onontaqu [Onondaga], puis six ou sept lieues au-dessous du Lac Eri; et estant parvenu jusqu'au 280me ou 83me degr de longitude, et jusqu'au 41me degr de latitude, trouva un sault qui tombe vers l'ouest dans un pays bas, marescageux, tout couvert de vielles souches, dont il y en a quelques-unes qui sont encore sur pied. Il fut donc contraint de prendre terre, et suivant une hauteur qui le pouvoit mener loin, il trouva quelques sauvages qui luy dirent que fort loin de l le mesme fleuve qui se perdoit dans cette terre basse et vaste se runnissoit en un lit. Il continua donc son chemin, mais comme la fatigue estoit grande, 23 ou 24 hommes qu'il avoit menez jusques l le quittrent tous en une nuit, regagnrent le fleuve, et se sauvrent, les uns la Nouvelle Hollande et les autres la Nouvelle Angleterre. Il se vit donc seul 400 lieues de chez luy, où il ne laisse pas de revenir, remontant la rivire et vivant de chasse, d'herbes, et de ce que luy donnrent les sauvages qu'il rencontra en son chemin."
