" Stern was the test, 
And sorely pressed 

That proved their blood best of the best, 
And when for Canada you pray 
Implore kind Heaven 
That, like a leaven, 
The hero-blood which then was given 
May quicken in her veins alway."

WHEN the American Colonies revolted in 1776, and 
declared their Independence, there was a very 
large number of the Colonists who vehemently opposed 
the movement, and aided the Imperial troops in the war 
that ensued. Those who took up arms for the Crown, 
fought for a United Empire, that was their rallying cry, 
they wished to see the English race united under a com- 
mon flag and under the same sovereign. They deplored 
the dismemberment of the Empire, and during the long 
struggle maintained a sturdy adherence to their princi- 
ples. They were known as the United Empire Loyalists 
or as has become a familiar phrase on this continent, the 
U. E. Loyalists. 

On the conclusion of the war, and the severance of the 
old Colonies from the Mother Country, these U. E. Loyal- 
ists abandoning all they possessed, moved into what is 
now New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, in 1783, and in 
1784 a large number of them moved up the St. Lawrence 
and settled in the then unbroken wilderness of Upper 
Canada. Many also moved from the United States 
through the wilderness, to the Niagara River, where 
they crossed into British Territory and made the first 
settlement in that district in the same year. A very large 


proportion of the present population of Upper Canada can 
trace their descent from these early pioneers, who settled 
this Province by reason of their unyielding loyalty to a 
great principle. This volume records the Celebration of 
the Centennial of the arrival of the U. E. Loyalists in 
Ontario. The demonstrations originated in the following 
manner : 

Some time in the summer of 1876, at a meeting of the 
York Pioneers, held in Toronto, the late Mr. Richard H. 
Gates suggested that as the United States were celebra- 
ting the centennial of their Declaration of Independence, 
it would be but right for the descendants of the United 
Empire Loyalists to hold a celebration in honour of the 
gallant efforts of their fathers to maintain the unity of 
the Empire, and in grateful recognition of the sacrifice 
made by them in founding this Province, as a British com- 

Dr. Win. Canniff pointed out to the society that the 
settlement of Upper Canada began in 1784, by the arri- 
val of the Loyalists, and that 1884 would be the proper 
date for holding the centennial celebration in Ontario. 
Mr. Oates coincided with the view, and was looking for- 
ward to taking part in it with much anticipation, when 
death overtook him. This seems to have been the incep- 
tion of the idea of a U. E. Loyalist demonstration. 

On the twenty-ninth of October, 1880, Mr. Canniff 
Haight, in the Toronto Daily Mail, suggested " an Exhi- 
bition, or some other demonstration in honour of the men 


who, through privation and toil, laid the foundation of 
this free and prosperous Province." This suggestion was 
noticed by the Picton, Belleville and Kingston papers. 

Nothing further was done in the matter until 1882, 
when the following letter was addressed to the Mayor of 
Toronto, by Dr. Wm. Canniff 

"TORONTO, 14th Dec., 1882. 
*' To His Worship the Mayor : 

* * DEAR SIR, I am greatly interested in the proposed semi-cen- 
tennial celebration of the Incorporation of Toronto, and beg to con- 
gratulate you on having conceived the idea of such a demonstration. 
But my object in addressing you is to call your attention to the fact 
that 1884 will be the centennial of the first settlement of Upper 
Canada, when the pioneers U. E. Loyalists, took possession of 
their lands along the St. Lawrence, from Kingston westward along 
the shores of the Bay of Quinte, and on the Niagara frontier. It 
has occurred to my mind that perhaps it might be possible, and 
deemed advisable to widen the basis of the commemoration and 
celebrate at the same time the centennial of the settlement of the 
Province. Of course, to do this it would be necessary to procure 
the co-operation of the other cities and the towns of the Province. 
There has been something said in the eastern papers about observ- 
ing the centennial, and Kingston was mentioned as the place most 
suitable for the purpose. But as there is some doubt about the 
matter, perhaps the centennial of the Province, and the semi-cen- 
tennial of the capital might be appropriately held in Toronto. This 
proposition may not be deemed feasible, but it seems to be a ques- 
tion not unworthy of consideration, and is, therefore, respectfully 
submitted to you for consideration^ 

" I am, respectfully yours, 



In accordance with the above suggestion, the Toronto 
. Semi-Centennial Committee set apart one day for the U. 
E. Loyalist demonstration, and Mr. Wm. B. McMurrich 
chairman of the Committee, placed the whole matter of 
the Toronto celebration in the hands of Dr. Canniff. A 
meeting was called by Dr. Canniff, and a U. E. Loyalist 
Centennial Committee was appointed, and circulars were 
sent to all the Wardens of counties and Mayors of cities, 
asking their co-operation. These circulars, which were 
also sent to the newspapers of the Province, attracted 
public attention to the matter, and at Adolphustown and 
Niagara, where the early settlements actually took place, 
the descendants of the U. E. Loyalists decided to hold 
local celebrations. The Adolphustown celebration was 
fixed for the sixteenth of June, 1884. The first landing 
of the Loyalists at that point having taken place on .the 
sixteenth of June 1784. The Toronto celebration was 
fixed for the third of July, and the Niagara one for the 
fourteenth of August. 

The Appendix contains a copy of the Order-in-Council 
of the 9th November, 1789, ordering a record to be pre- 
served of the U. E. Loyalist settlers, and also a copy of 
the U. E. List preserved in the Crown Lands Department, 
at Toronto, with all the notes and remarks in it complete. 
This list, which has never been published before, contains 
the names of the many thousands of U. E. Loyalist set- 
tlers who founded the Province of Upper Canada. 

The following pages contain accounts of the three cele- 
brations in the order in which they came off.

June, i6th, lyth and i8th, 1884. 

IN connection with the celebration, and as preliminary 
thereto, the corner stone of the Methodist U. E. L. 
Memorial church was laid on Saturday 14th June with pecu- 
liarly interesting ceremonies. There were present, Rev. D. 
V. Lucas, B. A., of Montreal ; Rev. J. J. Leach, of Odessa ; 
Rev. M. L. Pearson, of Napanee ; Rev. Adams, of Bath ; 
Rev. Briden, of Newburgh; Rev. M. I. Bates, of Tarn worth; 
and Rev. Mr. Gibson. All these participated in the pro- 
ings. The ceremony of laying the corner stone was 
performed by Mrs. Joseph Allison, one of the few remain- 
ing ones of the first generation succeeding the U. E. 
Loyalists. This lady having been for nearly three-fourths 
of a century a faithful and consistent member of the 
Methodist church, and being the daughter of one of the 
Loyalist Pioneers, it was peculiarly fitting that she should 
perform this office. The stone having been laid, refresh- 
ents were served, when an adjournment was had to the 
pel tent, which had been erected across the road, where 




Rev. Mr. Lucas delivered an admirable address appro- 
priate to the occasion. He predicted a brilliant future for 
Canada so long as she continues her loyalty to Methodism 
and Great Britain. A few brief words from Revs. Leach 
and Gibson, and the proceedings were brought to a close 
by singing " God save the Queen." On Sabbath, Rev. Mr. 
Lucas preached three sermons in the tent to large audi- 
ences, his addresses being marked by power, force and a 
practical application to present circumstances and require- 
ments. Seldom has it been the privilege of the people of 
this section to listen to three such effective discourses in 
one day. The financial outlook for this undertaking is 
most encouraging, as indeed it should be, located as it is 
in the heart of a large Methodist community and in the 
richest section of this fair country. 

On Sunday, 15th June, a sermon was preached at St. 
Paul's church, Adolphustown, and St. Paul's church, 
Fredericksburg, by the Rev. C. E. Thompson, M. A. In- 
cumbent of Carlton, Diocese of Toronto, from Ezekiel, 
xxxvi, 28, " And ye sha\l dwell in the land that I gave to 
your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be 
your God. 

The preacher is a grandson of the late Sheriff Ruttan, 
one of the United Empire Loyalists. The sermon was re- 
plete with historical facts in relation to the Loyalists. A 
highly eloquent discourse terminated with a reference to 
the wild idea of independence. He gave six months as 
the time the independence craze would continue. 

The usual Sunday quietude of the front was much 
changed by the presence of the 15th battalion, which 
arrived from Belleville in the morning at daybreak. 
The battalion, under the command of Col. Lazier, was 
camped near by the place of celebration on the shores of 
the bay, and the red coats gave an additional amount of 
beauty to the scene. 

The regiment had Divine service on the United Em- 
pire Loyalists burying ground in the afternoon. Rev. Mr. 


Forneri preached an eloquent sermon. He held up the 
Christian loyalty of the sires of Canada as a pattern to 
modern Canadians. 

On Monday, the 16th of June, the celebration com- 
menced. From early dawn carriages began to arrive ; all 
Adolphustown and adjacent places were well represented. 
The day was most auspicious. By noon a number of 
boats from Belleville on the west and Kingston on the 
east arrived with decks crowded from all the intervening 
oints. The Picton troop of cavalry under Major Fred 
White was among the arrivals. Three bands discoursed 
sweet music at frequent intervals, the fine band of the 
15th battalion, the band from Picton, and the band of 
Kingston. The military display was very fine. 

The proceedings were opened by the playing of the 
National Anthem and a public invocation of Divine 
blessing on the day's festivities and those taking part in 
them. In the afternoon the people were summoned about 
the speakers' stand, and addresses were delivered. Above 
the speakers' heads floated the handsome flag of the 
Native Canadian Society, of Belleville. The programme 
was opened by the playing of the National Anthem, and 
the invocation of the Divine blessing and returning 
thanks for the prosperity which has attended the U. E. 
Loyalists and their descendants, and the nation which 
they founded. 

The President, LEWIS L. BOGART, who is over eighty 
years of age, and who was selected for the position 
because he is the oldest living male representative of the 
TJ. E. Loyalist band, came forward and delivered the 
following brief but pointed address : 

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN I can assure you that it 
affords me very great pleasure to see so many present to 
do honour to our fathers and forefathers who landed at 
this place a century ago to-day. If we go back in our 
imagination to that time when the little company who 
had left their all for the love of king and country, and 


came here to hew out for themselves new homes in this 
vast primeval forest, and then as we look around us to-day, 
contrasting the past with the present, and behold a beau- 
tiful land, beautiful homes, a country free from famine and 
pestilence, where the pure bright sunlight of God's love 
shines down upon a prosperous, contented and happy peo- 
ple, who enjoy the blessings of peace on every hand and 
good will toward man, we would be very ungrateful indeed 
did we not appreciate the sacrifices and labours of our 
pioneer ancestors in procuring for us so goodly a heritage. 
I can only say that my father and grandfather were among 
that company; and I rejoice that I have been spared to 
see this grand centennial celebration in their homes. 
Although I feel incompetent for the duty assigned me, I de- 
sire to thank you for the honour you have conferred upon 
me in choosing me to preside on this occasion. 

A. L. MORDEN, Esq., vice-president, was then introduced, 
and delivered an admirable address, of which the follow- 
ing is a brief synopsis : 

The present is an occasion of no ordinary interest. 
The people of Adolphustown and those associated with 
them in the enterprise have put on foot this celebration 
in order, to use the words of that grand old man, Dr. 
Ryerson, "to do at least a modicum of justice to the 
memory of a Canadian ancestry, whose heroic deeds and 
unswerving Christian patriotism form a patent of nobility, 
more to be valued by their descendants than the coronets 
of many a modern nobleman." To-day the people of 
Adolphustown witness the beginning of that for which 
many of them for some time past have ardently toiled and 
hoped. To-day, Adolphustown extends a cordial welcome 
to the descendants of every U. E. Loyalist, and every 
loyal citizen of Canada, on these beautiful grounds. If 
Adolphustown be a small township, it is small only in its 
acreage, but it has standing ground enough for every 
Loyalist descendant in the Province of Ontario, and the 
people have hearts large enough to give them a hospita- 


ble welcome to this historic ground. When the Roman 
dominion was at its best, when the city sitting upon her 
seven hills from her throne of beauty ruled the world, 
when the Romans from their lofty civilization and cul- 
ure dictated laws for all succeedingjages, Civis Romanus 
sum, was the proud boast in which the citizens claimed 
participation in all the greatness, the glory and the pro- 
tection of Roman citizenship. It is ours to-day to be able 
in saying, ' I am a British subject." to utter a prouder 
boast than the Romans. It is largely due to the effort of 
those pioneers who, one hundred years ago to-day landed 
upon this spot, that this fair and fertile Province, and we 
who live in it, are British territory and British subjects. 
We do well to-day to take thought, for a little time, and 
congratulate ourselves upon our heritage, one which the 
lamented General Brock called upon our fathers in 1812, 
" Not to give their children cause to reproach them for 
having too easily parted with the richest inheritance on 
this earth a participation in the name, character and 
freedom of Britons." It is said we are a young country 
and have no history, but I have not read of any country 
which, during the last one hundred years, has a more 
glorious history. If our forefathers for their fervent 
loyalty to Britain, lost every thing but their honour, and 
bravely bore the hardships and privations of first settlers, 
what feelings should animate our breasts to-day, when 
with our attachment to British laws, institutions, tradi- 
tions, rights and liberties, there is added the intensity 
of our attachment to the sovereign. Never had British 
subjects such reason for inviolable attachment to the ruler 
as have we to-day for Her Most Gracious Majesty, Queen 
Victoria. Thirty years ago the poet Laureate prophesied 
that our children's children would say of Her : 

" She wrought her people lasting good, 
Her court was pure, her life serene, 
God gave her peace, her land reposed, 
A thousand claims to reverence closed 
In her as mother, wife and queen." 


To-day this forecast is abundantly verified. But, ladies 
and gentlemen, it is not proper for me to further occupy 
your time. I am only here to extend to you a cordial 
welcome to our celebration, to break the ice, as it were ; 
the orator of the day is our cherished friend, the historian 
of the Bay Quinte Loyalists, Dr. Canniff. Thanking you 
for the kind hearing you have given me, I will conclude 
with some words of Dr. Ryerson, uttered at a meeting of 
Loyalists at Brock's monument : " May Loyalty ever be 
the characteristic trait of Canadians, may freedom ever 
be our possession, and may we ever have cause and heart 
to say God Save the Queen." 

DR. CANNIFF then delivered the following address. 

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, Two hundred years ago or 
more, at a seaport town in Holland, was to be seen on a 
certain day, a sea-going vessel, around which was the 
usual activity and bustle incident to the final preparation 
for a voyage. As the work of taking in supplies and 
putting the ship in sailing order was going on, a some- 
what motley crowd of on-lookers regarded the scene with 
a lazy, listless air of indifference. Suddenly the atten- 
tion of all was quickened by a remarkable occurrence. 
The doleful tolling of a church bell, heard now and again 
above the din of numerous voices, had passed unheeded 
by those collected on the shore. Now, however, as there 
appears a procession slowly wending its way toward the 
place, the solemn peals suggest the thought of death. 
Leading the procession walks a venerable looking man, 
whose garb and mien betoken a dominie or minister of 
the Gospel. After him came a young couple in the first 
years of vigorous manhood, and the fresh bloom of woman- 
hood, walking hand-in-hand. They are clothed in holi- 
day attire, and have the appearance of a newly wedded 
husband and wife. Following them are a man and woman, 
whose grey heads and bent forms speak of advanced years. 
Next is another couple, also in the decline of life, Then 


walk two and two men, and women, boys and girls of all 
ages. They all wear the habiliments of woe, and the pro- 
cession moves with a slow and solemn tread, as if follow- 
ing a loved one to his grave. All that is wanting to 
complete a funeral train is the hearse with its nodding 
plumes, or coffin containing the body of one dead. The 
spectators, hushed to silence, gaze on the line of mourn- 
ers, and wonder and watch to see its course and destina- 
tion. With measured steps the dominie is followed to 
the vessel, and over its side. Then they gather in a group 
upon the deck around the young man and wife. A 
silence falls upon the assembled mourners as the man of 
God opens the Bible and reads from the inspired Book 
such words as give comfort and support to those who are 
bereaved. Now his voice is raised in prayer to God, and 
his prayer reveals to all who hear, the cause and reason 
of this strange scene. First, he prays that the aged 
parents may have Divine help in this their hour of trial 
in losing their dear children, and that they might still be 
happy in their earthly pilgrimage,be received hereafter into 
God's kingdom, and finally re-united to their children. 
He then commits to Him, who controls the winds and the 
waves, the young couple. He implores that they may be 
in His gracious care and keeping these dear ones, who 
to-day set out at once on the journey of married life, and 
to cross the wide ocean, parting forever in this life from 
their parents and friends, and who are, as it were, to be 
buried in the far away New World. Words of counsel 
follow to the young pair, sympathy to the parents of 
each is duly given. Finally, amid emotions which can- 
not be depicted, the mourners at last tear themselves from 
the voyageurs, who cling to each other in this hour of 
sore trial. The stricken parents have looked upon their 
children for the last time; they, in turn, shall see their 
parents' faces no more in this world. 

This is a picture from real life presented at the period 
of time I have mentioned. Having determined to seek 


new homes in America, this young man and woman knew, 
in making this choice, they would leave parents and 
homes, with no possibility of seeing them again. Cross- 
ing the Atlantic then was a far different matter from 
what it is to-day, with rapid steam navigation. The 
name these young emigrants bore is one well known in 
Adolphustown. It was found among those who accompa- 
nied Major VanAlstine when he landed on this spot one 
hundred years ago to-day. And, pardon me for adding, 
I can claim to be, on my mother's side, one of the descen- 
dants of that pair, and there are not a few present who 
can make the same claim, and whom I am proud to 
know as kinsmen. The story was often told me by my 
venerated mother many years ago. I have presented 
it to you to-day, not merely for personal gratification, 
but to show the stern courage which characterized the 
first settlers in America. Many nations of Europe con- 
tributed equally bold and intrepid men and women to 
people the Atlantic coast of this continent. England, 
Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Germany, and Holland gave 
their most vigorous sons, and the Huguenots of France 
formed a rich quota to lay the foundation of the United 
States and Canada. 

It was mainly the descendants of these hardy pioneers 
of the seventeenth century, who a century later became 
exiles from their fathers' homes, and who penetrated to 
the wilderness of Upper Canada to plant the noble Pro- 
vince of Ontario. Why was it they left the comfortable 
homes their fathers had made, and the place which by 
their labour, energy, and enterprise had from a wilderness 
blossomed into a goodly fruitful land ? This is not the 
time to fully discuss the events attending the great Ameri- 
can rebellion of 1776. This is not the place to weigh the 
controlling motives which caused a portion of the British 
Americans at that time to take up arms against the 
Mother Country, nor the abiding principles which im- 
pelled another portion of the same people to stand true 


to the flag under which they had been born, under which 
they had prospered, and under which they had fought 
and conquered French Canada. They were willing to 
sacrifice and did sacrifice everything to uphold British 
power in America. But, while I may not to-day, place in 
the balance the motives which influenced the two parties 
the Whigs and the Tories of that day, I do maintain 
whatever reason the Whigs may have had for the course 
they took, the Tories, the Loyalists were actuated by a 
noble sense of duty, of patriotism, of Christian fidelity to 
the Crown. They could not discover a sufficient reason 
for raising the standard of revolt and engaging in civil 

Neither is this the time to consider the reasons why 
the rebellion commenced in 1776 became a revolution, 
why rebels became heroes, and the British empire became 
dismembered. At the commencement of the hostilities 
the rebels were in a minority throughout the thirteen colo- 
nies. In New England they predominated, but many 
of the other colonies, especially New York, from which 
so many of the Bay of Quinte* settlers came, were largely 
against the rebellion. I know exception may be taken to 
this statement on the ground that the war terminated in 
a revolution. But it must be remembered that the war 
continued for seven years, during which time the loyalists 
were continually leaving the country. Then there was a 
large number who were indifferent as to the result, and 
stood ready to embrace the cause which succeeded. There 
were even a considerable number of Whigs who, at first 
were averse to independence, and who were forced into 
accepting it. England was already engaged with Euro- 
pean complications. Then the mistakes and ignorance of 
the country on the part of the British officers in command 
in America, led to disaster and discouragement among the 
Loyalists. Finally, and which turned the scale, France 
gave substantial assistance, and at last the surrender of 
Cornwallis practically terminated the struggle. The end 


had come. England recognized the independence of the 
Colonies, and the loyal Americans found themselves with- 
out homes, and aliens to the land of their birth. They 
were not only homeless and aliens, but they were subjects 
of persecution. Many would have accepted the changed 
condition and have become reconciled, but they were de- 
prived of their property and their lands were confiscated. 
How the Loyalists departed some driven away, and 
some because they would not live under any but the 
British Flag, and how they found their way into the 
wildernesses of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Canada, 
is a sad and touching story, a story which has never been 
fully told. Says an American writer, speaking of his 
countrymen : " Our writers of history have been almost 
silent upon this topic, and it is not impossible that some 
persons have read books devoted exclusively to an account 
of the revolution without so much as imagining that a 
considerable part of the force employed to suppress the 
rebellion was composed of our countrymen." But why 
has not the story been told by the U. E. Loyalists them- 
selves ? The words of the same writer gives the answer. 
He says : " Of the reasons which influenced, of the hopes 
and fears which agitated, and of the miseries and rewards 
which awaited the Loyalists of the American revolution 
but little is known. The most intelligent, the best in- 
formed among us confess the deficiency of their know- 
ledge. The reason is obvious. They, who like the Loyal- 
ists separate themselves from their friends and kindred, 
who are driven from their homes, who surrender the hopes 
and expectations of life, and who become outlaws, wander- 
ers and exiles such men leave few memorials behind 
them. Their papers are scattered and lost and their very 
names pass from human recollection." To this may be 
added the statement that the pioneers of any country, 
struggling to create a home and procure the necessaries 
of life, have no time to devote to writing history or re- 
cording events. The consequences have been that while 


the Americans for a century have been engaged in writ- 
ing up the Revolution from their point of view, the history 
of the American Loyalists has received but little atten- 
tion, and many of the facts relating to their history have 
been irretrievably lost. 

No wonder then that the U. E. Loyalists are not only 
mostly forgotten, but have had their conduct, their mo- 
tives, and their character misrepresented by partisans. The 
efforts made by that noble and patriotic Canadian, that 
grand descendant of the U. E. Loyalists I refer to the 
late Rev. Dr. Ryerson to place before the world a more 
accurate estimate of the Loyalists, and the attempts by 
others, in later years, to rescue from oblivion facts honour- 
able and praiseworthy relating to them, have been received, 
even by the Canadian public, with almost incredulity, when 
not with cold indifference. During the hundred years 
that the Loyalists have been engaged in converting the 
wilderness into comfortable homes, the press of the United 
States has occupied itself, the thousands of Americans 
abroad have been assiduously at work educating the world 
to the effect that the American Tories of 1776 were the 
offscourings of the land, the vilest of the vile, worthy only 
of being execrated by mankind. Not only the daily and 
weekly press has been thus engaged, but the school books 
used by the young in the United States, and sometimes 
in Canada, have contained the most outrageously partial 
accounts of the struggle and the participants on either 
side. Never was history so perverted, never did misre- 
presentations so effectually deceive. Not only have the 
children of the United States been imbued with hatred 
towards the Loyalists, but the modern Englishman, Scotch- 
man, not to say Irishman, has accepted the teachings of 
partisan American writers. Even Canadians may be 
found who have nothing but praise for the rebels of 1776, 
and nothing but obloquy for those who did not think re- 
bellion was a justifiable act. British statesmen and the 
press of Great Britain have seemingly vied to see which 


could offer to the screaming goddess the most profound 
adulation. It would be amusing were it not humiliating 
to see Canadians so-called, shall I say bastard Canadians, 
especially those by adoption, endeavouring in a feeble 
way to cast discredit upon the TJ. E. Loyalists. "\Vith the 
most superficial knowledge of the subject, they under- 
take to instruct native Canadians respecting their fathers. 
They mostly set out on the supposition that the Loyalists 
had no love of liberty, that they were willing to be al- 
most, or quite, serfs or slaves, and to pay taxes to the 
Imperial treasury without Parliamentary representation. 
But nothing could be more at variance with the truth. In 
the first place, a vast number of those who ultimately 
sided with the rebels were indifferent about the question 
of liberty. A great many joined the insurrectionists sim- 
ply to advance their personal interests, and could their 
interests have been equally served they would have been 
found on the side of the Loyalists. "With not a few it was 
only a struggle for office and power. On the other hand 
there were a very large number of Loyalists who recog- 
nized all the evils which really did exist in the relation- 
ship between England and America. They were not blind 
to the injustice which, in many ways, was evinced by the 
Crown toward the colonies. But they did not and could 
not see a sufficient grievance to justify rebellion ; at least 
they desired to seek redress by peaceful means. And those 
acquainted with the conflict of opinion among British 
statesmen at that time as to the rights of America know 
that, had peaceful means been pursued, all the complaints 
would, in time, have been removed. Then it must not be 
forgotten that Britain had given money and blood to con- 
quer French Canada in the interests of the colonies. 

It is submitted, as adequate proof of the statement, 
that the U. E. Loyalists were not without a love of liberty, 
that the subsequent history of the British provinces, set- 
tled by them, presents a steady and healthy development 
in -liberal government ; and to-day Canada has more 


liberty and the government of the people is really more 
democratic than the United States. The sapient writers 
I have referred to, are wont to assert that the contest for 
responsible government in Canada was between the 
Loyalists, joined together in a family compact, and some- 
body else ; but whom has never been made quite clear. 
But as a matter of fact it was the general mass of the 
tL E. Loyalists who obtained the benefits of responsible 
government. The " Family Compact" represented only 
a fragment of the U. E. Loyalist element, and was by no 
means composed exclusively of that class. The love of 
liberty was manifested by the Loyalist settlers of Upper 
Canada in many ways. In the Declaration of Independence 
of the colonies it is stated that " all men are born free and 
equal" How far this principle was carried out by the 
United States, history tells us in words no one can mis- 
understand. As a matter of fact it was not until 1865, 
and after a bloody war in which hundreds of thousands 
of lives were sacrificed, that slavery was abolished, and 
the words I have quoted really stated the condition of the 
people of the United States. The proclamation of Presi- 
dent Lincoln, made necessary by the exigencies of the 
war, was made 70 years after the U. E. Parliament of Upper 
Canada had passed an " Act to prevent the further intro- 
duction of slaves, and to limit the time of contract for 
servitude within this province." And during this period 
Canada was the asylum of the down-trodden of the 
United States. Again, in the treatment of the native 
Indians, how differently they have fared in Canada than 
they have in the United States ! While cruelty and in- 
justice have attended the footsteps of the frontier 
men in the latter, in the former, the aboriginal owner 
of the soil has been, like the African, treated as a 
man and a brother. His rights have been respected ; and 
treaty obligations with them, faithfully observed ; with 
the result, that, while bloody Indian wars have marked 
the history of our neighbours, we have had peace in our 


borders. There is, therefore, abundant reason for main- 
taining that the U. E. Loyalists were not wanting in the 
essential principles of liberty; liberty broad and deep, 
which embraces all mankind, irrespective of race, or 

But ladies and gentlemen, in drawing a comparison be- 
tween our U. E. Loyalists' fathers and the fathers of the 
republic, I have no desire to belittle people of that gene- 
ration. Any such attempt on my part would be puny 
indeed. While 1 honestly endeavour to eulogize the 
U. E. Loyalists, I do not desire to ignore all that is good 
and noble in our kinsmen over the border. The bitter- 
ness of last century is all buried. As Canadians to-day, 
we entertain toward them no feeling but that of good will, 
and we wish them God-speed. We even hope that their 
destiny may be as great as we believe ours is sure to be. 
As an elder offspring of Old England we cannot avoid 
being influenced by her examples. But while that nation 
and the Canadian nation are advancing on parallel 
lines in growth and development, the lines cannot come 

I am tempted to draw a comparison between the des- 
cendants of the rebels and Loyalists of 1776 as we find 
them to-day, but time will not permit. However, I hesi- 
tate not to say that the sons of Canada children of the 
Loyalists, have physical and mental qualities which will 
bear any comparison. 

Ladies and gentlemen, we are assembled to-day to cele- 
brate the settlement of this province the Province of 
Ontario. But we do so with no narrow feeling of sec- 
tionalism. We are here as Canadians above all. No 
pent-up Utica contracts our power and feelings of patriot- 
ism for the whole Dominion. The whole breadth of the 
continent from Newfoundland to Vancouver's Island 
is ours to hold and to cultivate. We take in our mari- 
time brethren, who also are descendants of the Loyalists. 
We do not exclude the French of Lower Canada, notwith- 


standing their disposition to keep isolated, for we remem- 
ber how they stood firmly by the side of our fathers in 
the fight for Old England" in 1776 and 1812* We embrace 
the vigorous sons of Manitoba and the North- West, 
many of whom have the U. E. Loyalist blood in their 
veins; and we extend a brother's hand to the loyal Can- 
adians of the Pacific coast. Looking east, west, and north 
over our rich heritage, we say Canada one and indivisible 
for ever Canada for the Canadians, and Canadians only. 
As Dr. CannifF concluded his address, the 15th Battalion 
headed by their band, came down from the camp and made 
their way towards the spot where one of the genial events 
of the day was to take place, the laying with Masonic 
honours of the corner-stone of the new monument to 
the U.E. Loyalists. Thither the people filed. The Masons 
also formed in line and proceeded to the spot in a body. 
The stone, which was lying on the ground, just at the 
edge of the plot used for the burial ground, was soon sur- 
rounded twenty deep by people anxious to witness the 
ceremony. All being ready, R. W. Bro. Arthur McGuin- 
ness, D. D. G. M., acting as G. M., made a brief address, in 
the course of which he eulogized the Loyalists, and said 
that the only reason why such men had not already had 
some such tribute as was now proposed to be erected to 
their memory, must be found in the fact that such acknow- 
ledgments of the people's love and gratitude must come 
when there was time for the cultivation of the arts and 
wealth to accumulate. He and his brethren deemed it 
an honour to lay this corner-stone, as a monument to the 
memory of men who had sacrificed so much for their 
allegiance to the British flag. The mystic rites having 
been duly solemnized, a prayer was offered by Worship- 
ful Bro. Rev. R. J. Craig, as Grand Chaplain, and the stone 
was duly declared laid. The conclusion of the ceremony 
was announced by the National Anthem by the band, 
followed by a grand salute by the loth Battalion, "B" 
Band, Kingston, and the Picton Silver Cornet Band, 


which had arrived on the grounds early in the afternoon, 
played some lively selections near the speaker's stand. 

The addresses from the grand stand were then re- 

Mr. D. W. ALLISON, M. P. for Lennox, was called to 
the chair. He announced as first speaker, 

SIR RICHARD CARTWRIGHT, who came forward amid 
applause. After greeting the audience, among whom 
he j recognized many old friends, he proceeded : I do 
not believe you could be assembled for a more laud- 
able or patriotic purpose than that which has brought 
you together to-day. We are here for the purpose 
of doing what honour we can to the memory of men 
to whom we owe it that not merely Ontario, but one- 
half the continent of North America, remains to-day 
under British rule. It is desirable, too, that we should 
endeavour to understand the magnitude of the sacri 
fice made by the noble band who a hundred years ago 
drew up their batteaux on the shores of Adolphus- 
town. These men were not inconsiderate youths ; they 
were men, most of them of mature years, and some ad- 
vanced in life, who won for themselves comfortable inde- 
pendence in a country south of us. At what they con- 
ceived to be the call of duty, they were ready to sacrifice 
everything that men commonly hold dear; resign the 
wealth they had accumulated, forfeit their prospects 
their own and their children's for sake of their loyalty to 
the flag under which they had served, and under which 
many of them had fought and bled. That was not an 
ordinary act, and men who performed it were cast in 
no ordinary mould. Nowadays it is far too common to 
judge a man's acts by the standard of mere material suc- 
cess. These men had something nobler and loftier before 
them. Had it been worldly prosperity they looked for 
they would have cast their lot in with the Republic to 
the south of us ; had they blenched from the trials before 


them ; had they been frightened away from their task of 
carving a home in the wilderness a very few years would 
have passed before the Amercan flag would have waved 
over the whole of this continent. Here the men who did 
these things possessed the courage of their convictions. 
Where they thought they were right, they were not 
afraid of being in the minority. They were prepared to 
fight, and if need be to suffer and die for their convictions. 
It is of such men the salt of the earth is made, and we in 
Canada have good right to be proud that we can look 
back to such ancestors. You may deem these men fool- 
ish in their enthusiasm, but if you are worthy to be their 
descendants, you will agree with me in saying that they 
dared greatly, and succeeded greatly, and they have left 
behind lessons which we will do well to follow. We 
ought, on an occasion like this, to understand what in- 
duced our grandfathers to make the sacrifice they did. 
You must look back a little to see America during the 
course of the eighteenth century. Beginning in 1700 
and ending in 1775, a great struggle was going on, waged 
in different parts of America between tbe two greatest 
nations of Europe. In that struggle these men had many 
of them borne a part, The struggle was to decide 
whether England or France was to rule this great conti- 
nent. Those who look back and consider how far the 
French pioneers had advanced, what their exertions were, 
how much blood and treasure England and France had 
spilled in the struggle, will understand in some degree 
why it was our forefathers desired not to show them- 
selves ungrateful for the great sacrifice which the parent 
country had made. The other day I came across a strange 
letter from the distinguished French General Montcalm, 
who fell in the great battle which finally decided the fate 
of North America. I find that Montcalm, who was not 
only a great general but a very able statesman, put on re- 
cord a prediction of his own fall, declaring he would be 
defeated, and that he would not survive the loss of North 


America. He predicted also that ten years after Canada 
was conquered, the other colonies would assert their inde- 
pendence. As you know, who have paid attention to 
history, that was fulfilled almost to the hour and day. 
Canada was ceded to Great Britain in 1768, and within 
twelve years thereafter the first blood was drawn in the 
struggle which resulted in the independence of the 
United States of America. The letter first predicts that if 
General Wolfe understands his trade that Montcalm 
must be defeated ; and declares that as this defeat means 
the total loss of North America, he will not survive. 

" I console myself, nevertheless, for the prospect of my 
own defeat, and of the loss of the colony, by my firm 
conviction that this defeat will prove in the long run 
better than a victory for France, and that the conqueror, 
England, will find a tomb in her own conquest. This 
may appear a paradox, but a little reflection and a glance 
at the political situation in North America will prove the 
correctness of my opinion. A large portion of the Eng- 
lish colonists are the children of men who left England 
during the period of the civil war, and betook themselves 
to America to find a country where they might live and 
die in freedom and independence. I know them thor- 
oughly, not by hear-say, but by means of sure information 
and correspondence which I have arranged myself, and 
which if my life had been prolonged, I had meant to 
turn to the advantage of France. In fact all the English 
colonists would have shaken off the yoke long ago, and 
every one of them would have become a little indepen- 
dent republic had it not been for the fear of France at 
their doors. As between two masters they preferred 
their own fellow countrymen to foreigners, taking care, 
meanwhile, to render no more obedience than they could 
help ; but if Canada is conquered, and if the Canadians 
and the English Colonies become one people the very first 
occasion on which England will appear and interfere with 
their interests, do you suppose the Colonists will obey 


her ? What have they to fear if they do revolt ? I am 
so perfectly certain -of the truth of what I have written 
that I will only allow ten years after the conquest of 
Canada to see my predictions accomplished. Now you 
see the reason which consoles me as a Frenchman for the 
imminent danger France is incurring of seeing Canada 
lost forever." 

Most of the Loyalists whom we honour to-day had 
fought for the supremacy of Great Britain and of the 
British race in North America, and they thought after 
such great sacrifices that had been made they were bound 
to see that the English race was not robbed of the price 
of the sovereignty of this continent. Remember when 
in 1775, the Colonies decided to break off their allegiance 
this struggle was of very recent date; that many of the 
men served under British generals in the armies which 
conquered Canada and took Quebec. There were men of 
different classes among the Loyalists. Some were im- 
pelled simply by honest and laudable instinct of loyalty to 
the flag to which they had owed allegiance, and they were 
prepared to make sacrifices for that loyalty. I would 
have you all to make sacrifices where necessary for your 
convictions; but besides these there were others among 
that band. These men, as their name United Empire 
Loyalists showed, thoroughly appreciated the enormous 
future which awaited the English race in North America. 
It would be a mistake to suppose that they wholly 
approved of the course of the British Government. As 
their correspondence shows, they objected, as Burke and 
Chatham objected, but they felt it would be a thousand 
pities and a disgrace to the race, that after all that had 
passed, the English race should allow itself to be split 
into fragments, and we have numerous proofs of how 
powerfully these men's acts and feelings affected the 
whole destiny of this country. Gentlemen, the Loyalists 
builded better than they knew. They came a handful 
of men, perhaps four or five thousand souls, to the Pro- 


vince of Ontario, and yet they have given to a very great 
extent impulse and direction to the feelings and destiny 
of four or five millions who now inhabit the Dominion. 
But for the effect of the example and traditions they left 
behind them, I believe you would not see yonder flag float 
from this ground to-day. If there be here, as possibly 
there may be, a few of those veterans who recollect the 
war of 1812 and 1815, they will tell you how powerfully 
the example of the Loyalists strengthened their hands for 
the desperate struggle to preserve Canada to the British 

Look to history and you will not find a case in the 
whole range in which a handful of men maintained 
themselves successfully against desperate odds, which 
reflects more lustre on the people who did it, than the 
struggle of our fathers in that war. America placed 
along the frontier 20,000 men, a greater number than the 
whole male population of the Province capable of bear- 
ing arms at that time. All the aid the British Govern- 
ment could send during the first year was four companies 
of regulars. She sent us also Brock, who alone was 
worth an army. Brock with eighteen hundred men 
reduced three thousand Americans to capitulation. In 
the face of the great European wars, the deeds of heroism 
on the frontier of Canada were lost sight of, but it is not 
for any patriotic Canadian to forget them. I have said 
elsewhere and I now repeat that the colony of Ontario 
has a proud pre-eminence among the colonies of Britain 
for this reason. All the other colonies have been founded 
by men who sought to better their condition, or were 
founded by the Government of Britain, or obtained by 
conquest, but Ontario stands alone as the colony founded 
by men making great sacrifices to maintain their alle- 
giance to Great Britain. I know of but one com- 
munity m America, or elsewhere perhaps that founded 
by the Puritan fathers in New England. I arn not going to 
make a political harangue, but I have ventured in an- 


other place to point out how I thought we, descendants 
of the U. E. Loyalists, might best act in the spirit of our 
forefathers. Bear in mind that what these men sought 
to prevent was a division which France sought to foster 
between the great portions of the English race. I believe 
the Loyalists, and the people of Canada who derive their 
inspiration from them, can best do justice to the spirit of 
their forefathers by doing what they can to bring together 
in a union all the English-speaking races in the world. I 
state as a man loyal to Britain and to British institutions. 
I believe I know whereof I speak when I say no such 
service can be rendered to the people of Great Britain and 
of the whole world than to remove all chance of hostility 
between the two great branches of the English race. As 
a descendant of a loyalist, I say it would be a work to 
which any man might be proud to consecrate his life. It 
is the part of wisdom for us to do what we can to fulfil 
the object for which our forefathers sacrificed so much ; 
to bring together as a united people, if not under one 
Sovereign, at any rate in one alliance offensive and de- 
fensive, two great nations, which, to the misfortune of 
the world, have been severed and alienated. You may 
call this a dream Cavour was called a dreamer when he 
hoped for a united Italy ; Bismarck was condemned as a 
visionary when he saw in the future a German Confed- 
eration. The English speaking people are not inferior to 
the Italians and Germans, when the real welfare of their 
race is at stake. In closing, he urged upon the Canadians 
to imitate the heroism of their ancestors, because the 
nation could never become great, unless some citizens were 
willing to sacrifice themselves for the general good, and 
Canada at the time needed such men. 

The REV. D. V. LUCAS, Montreal, then addressed the 
meeting as follows : 

a very great privilege indeed to be permitted to join with 
the distinguished statesman who has just addressed you, 


and with you all in doing honour to those worthy people 
who, one hundred years ago, landed upon the spot where 
we are now assembled, to lay in this Province the founda- 
tions of civilization. We are carried back in our thoughts 
to those days. Few of us know anything of the hard- 
ships through which these " pilgrim fathers " of Canada 
had to pass. Pushing one's way into a new country to- 
day, by means of our railways and other modern facilities 
is not what it was a century ago. 

However much we may admire their courage and forti- 
tude in braving the rigours of Canadian winters, and the 
difficulties of making homes for themselves and their 
posterity in the Canadian forests, we have met to-day 
more particularly to admire the spirit which brought them 
hither, and if possible to catch something of their devo- 
tion to principles which through the medium of the 
British Constitution, Heaven itself, in their estimation, 
had bestowed upon them. 

We go back in thought a little farther, to those days 
when the older Colonies of Britain on this continent, de- 
cided to dishonour the flag, under whose aegis they had 
received all that is excellent in their present political sys- 
tem. I do not stop now to question the motives of those 
who excited the colonists to rebellion. It is enough for 
the present to say that, the men whom Canada delights 
to honour, regarded the course of the insurgents as a most 
unrighteous one, and rather than give it their consent and 
aid, chose to begin anew in this northern part of our 
great continent, where even amid cold and poverty and 
hardships of various kinds they might still live under the 
free flag of Britain, and enjoy the blessings of which that 
flag is the emblem. 

When we consider the present progress of our native 
land to which our honoured fathers directed their steps, 
and the excellence of our political institutions, and the 
grand future which is evidently before our beloved Do- 
minion, we feel that these noble men of a hundred years 


ago, built " better than they knew." They honoured the 
Hag of England and the principles which that flag repre- 
sented, and we have met to honour them. I trust, Sir, 
that while we are less worthy than they, those who come 
after us will at least respect us for assembling on this, the 
first centennial anniversary, to do honour to those noble 
and devoted fathers of our Canadian Dominion. 

It might not be unprofitable, Mr. Chairman, to go still 
farther back and remind ourselves of the growth of lib- 
erty in England, and of the British Constitution. Some- 
how, more than among other nations of Europe, there 
seems to have been in the English Isle, from the earliest 
ages, an intense desire for liberty. The great Alfred had 
said that it was his desire that the people of England 
should be as free as the air they breathed. Through cen- 
turies, most of those wars, aside from those associated with 
the conquests, were simply a long struggle between the 
despotism of kings on the one hand, and the inherent love 
of liberty on the other. 

The constitution of England as we now know it, was of 
slow growth, but each century found it more in accord 
with the will of the people. The last great element of 
liberty may be said to have been introduced into the con- 
stitution when William III. and his queen signed the 
memorable Bill of Rights on their accession to the throne, 
after the abdication of James II. America had by this 
time been brought more fully to the notice of the people 
of the old world, and it was hoped that those grand prin- 
ciples, for which the English people had so long struggled, 
would find scope and development on this continent, such 
as might not be accorded them where there still lingered 
considerable sympathy with royal ambition and ecclesias- 
tical conservatism. Though it is hard to find excuse for 
the arbitrary spirit of George III. and his advisers, and a 
majority of his parliament, yet as has been clearly shown 
by Dr. Ryerson, the difficulty between the Home Govern- 
ment and the Colonies might have been adjusted without 


secession on the part of the latter, and, as the same distin- 
guished writer has shown, would have been in harmony 
with the general wish of the Americans, if it had not been 
for a few ambitious leaders urging the people on to, as 
our fathers thought, an unjustifiable rebellion, and some- 
how we cannot divest our minds of the thought that our 
fathers were right. 

The long history of the struggle on the part of their 
ancestors for constitutional freedom was deeply engraven 
on their minds. They loved that history and were proud 
of it. Their fathers had fought to make the grand old 
flag of England the emblem of all that was good politi- 
cally. If it could have been shown that there was still 
lacking some element of pure constitutional liberty, they 
were willing to labour to secure it, but to tread both flag 
and constitution in the dust, looked to them not only as 
an insult to Him who had so helped their fathers, but an 
insult to the cherished memory of their fathers as well. 

Be that as it may, we rejoice when we remember their 
loyalty, not merely because we admire the principle itself, 
but because of the blessings which their loyalty has 
brought to us. 

Look at our widely-extended country, with its great 
fertility, its salubrious atmosphere, its broad acreage of 
arable land, its lofty mountains, magnificent rivers, rich 
minerals almost incalculable in extent, with its valuable 
forests and fisheries a country almost as large as the 
whole of Europe and remember that because of the de- 
votion and loyalty and self-sacrifice of those men whom 
we to-day commemmorate, all the principles of British 
constitutional liberty are ours by birthright. 

The British Constitution, modified in some of its de- 
tails to meet our colonial requirements, without in any 
sense changing any of its general principles, becomes to 
us the highest type of political freedom, and offers us the 
easiest political yoke borne by any people under Heaven. 

lalk of annexation to the United States. That is im- 


possible. The institutions of the two peoples are too 
diverse to admit of a political amalgamation. Our ideas 
of sovereignty differ so widely from those of our neigh- 
bours that we could never, even for one hour, consent to 
surrender the power which constitutes us the sovereign 
people. With our education and experience, politically, 
we never could give up our rights in this matter to the 
head of the nation and his chosen advisers. 

Talk of independence in the sense of separation from 
the old land ! This is quite as impossible with the Cana- 
dian people. For this is our pride and our boast, we are 
a part of the great British Empire. Like that angel which 
John saw standing in the sun, I see standing in the earth 
a mighty giant, made mighty by the King of Heaven. 
Upon his head are those wonderful and glorious British 
Isles, his feet resting on the golden sands of Australia ; 
his left arm, India, now being redeemed from the wheels 
of the Juggernaut and the superstitions of past ages ; his 
right arm, Canada, now being redeemed from the growl 
of the wild beast and the war whoop of the savage. 
When I think, sir, of the vast millions who may, and who 
surely will, yet dwell in our "great dominion, all educated 
under the great influence of British political institutions, 
and lovers of the flag which to-day waves over us, and of 
those principles which that flag represents, I think of the 
future of this vast empire, exercising in the earth its in- 
fluence for the elevation of mankind, as the mighty power 
of God making itself felt through the instrumentality of 
human government. 

As Canadians, this is our boast, we are a part, and we 
hope no insignificant part, of the British Empire, and our 
prayer is that nothing may ever occur, to the end of time, 
to sever those ties which bind our favoured and happy 
country to the motherland. Our loyalty is too strong, and 
we trast our children's loyalty will be equally so, to ad- 
mit of any action which implies and involves dismember- 
ment of that mighty empire of which we are justly 



ADOLPHUSTOWN, June 17. The second day of the U. E. 
Loyalist celebration was marked by fine weather and a 
very large attendance of visitors. All the steamers ply- 
ing on the Bay of Quints' brought crowds of people. The 
first event this morning, though not down as a part of 
the celebration under the auspices of the Committee, was 
an interesting and important one, no less than the laying 
of the corner-stone of the Memorial Church by Lieutenant- 
Go vernor Robinson. The Rev. R. S. Forneri, B.A., Pastor 
of the Anglican Church, here, has since he took this 
charge worked earnestly in promoting this object, and 
the present celebration gave him the best opportunity of 
having the work of the actual building inaugurated with 
becoming ceremonies. 

The Lieutenant-Governor arrived from Napanee this 
morning by private yacht, about eleven o'clock. He was 
met at the wharf by 9, guard of honour of the 15th Bat- 
talion, Argyle Light Infantry, under command of Adjt.- 
Captain T. C. Lazier, and conducted to St. Paul's Church, 
the present Anglican Church of Adolphustown. 

Rev. R. S. Forneri, rector of Adolphustown, has every 
reason to feel gratified by the marked success attending 
his indefatigable efforts to bring this enterprise to a suc- 
cessful issue. The new church edifice, which has been 
named St. Alban's, is to be a handsome structure of the 
modern Gothic style, capable of seating about 250 people. 
It will have a neat bell tower seventy-two feet high. The 
mam entrance will be at the side of the building and will 
have an open porch with doors of iron work. The nave 
is 32 * 50 feet and the chancel 26 H 24 feet. The interior 
i to be decorated with a number of memorial tablets to 
leading members of the pioneer band who landed on the 
shores of Quinte* 100 years ago. The site is one of the 
most commanding along the bay front and was liberally 
donated for the purpose by J. J. Watson, Esq. After a 
short service at the church by the Archdeacon, the pro* 


cession was re-formed, and singing an appropriate hymn 
marched to the site of the new edifice. The ceremony 
throughout was most impressive, the Ven. Archdeacon 
leading and the people joining heartily in the responses. 
At the proper time a beautiful silver trowel, suitably en- 
graved, was handed to the Lieutenant-Governor, with 
which he laid on the cement, saying : 

" We lay this stone of foundation to the honour and glory of God, 
and in memory of the United Empire Loyalists, who one hundred 
years ago laid the corner-stone of our Province in peace and righte- 
ousness and in loyalty to the British Crown and Empire." 

Among the clergymen present were the following : 
Dean Lyster, of St. George's Cathedral, Kingston ; Rural 
Dean Kirkpatrick, of Kingston; Rev. J. W. Burke, of 
Belleville ; Revs. C. E. Cartwright, of Kingston ; Cook, 
Kingston ; R. S. Forneri, Incumbent of Adolphustown ; 
Rural Dean Baker, Tyendinaga ; Rev. Mr. Cook, Oshawa ; 
Revs. Carey, Roberts, Stanton, D. F. Bogert, and Thomp- 

The Lieutenant-Governor was presented with an ad- 
dress which was gorgeously illuminated, and of which the 
following is a copy : 

To His Honour John Beverley Robinson, Lieut. -Gover- 
nor of the Province of Ontario. 


On behalf the Rector and members of the Church of 
England in the Parish of Adolphustown and Fredericks- 
burg, and sundry other persons interested in commemo- 
rating the important historical event of the arrival there 
of British subjects known as UNITED EMPIRE LOYALISTS, 
by the erection of a new church near the spot on which 
landed the "worthy band of refugees" in 1784, this ad- 
dress is respectfully presented. 

Most cordially and gratefully we bid your Honour wel- 
come to Adolphustown on this occasion, when after the 
lapse of one hundred years, we would raise a sacred edi- 


fice in memory of many brave men, who not only sacri- 
ficed everything in obedience to the divine command, 
" Honour the King," but who were equally ready to re- 
cognize the paramount duty to " Fear God." 

The U. E. Loyalists were, we believe, religious as well 
as loyal men, and wherever they settled in Canada 
they laid the foundation not alone of patriotism but 
also of piety. Therefore we, their descendants and de- 
voted admirers, have deemed the erection of a HOUSE OF 
PRAYER a significant and appropriate memorial embody- 
ing these two great principles, which the sons of the 
ancient Church of England have been ever foremost and 
steadfast in upholding principles we would endeavour 
to inculcate in our children, and transmit to future gene- 
rations in this country, viz. : that along with the duty 
we owe to ourselves in maintaining civil and religious 
freedom, we are no less bound to be faithful in discharg- 
ing what is due by loyal men to their Sovereign, and by 
Christian men to their God. 

It is an auspicious coincidence that on this day, 17th 
June, the Church of England commemorates in her calen- 
dar England's Proto-Martyr, St. Alban, the first man who 
on Britsh soil sealed with his life-blood his testimony as a 
loyal subject of his Heavenly King, our Lord Jesus Christ. 
May his name, under which the memorial church is to be 
dedicated to God, ever unite our affections to the dear 
old mother land, and inspire us all to follow the example 
of one who held not his life dear for the cause of Christ. 
^ Animated by such sentiments, we have undertaken this 
pious work, which, we rejoice to know, has received the 
warm approval of your Honour as Lieutenant-Governor 
of the Province, and as yourself, an illustrious member of 

famous U. E. L. family. We have asked you, Sir, to 
put to it the first hand in laying the corner stone, and we 
tender our very grateful acknowledgements for your kind 
compliance with our request. We beg to assure you that 
it is to us a matter of the most lively satisfaction and 
congratulation that the Chief Magistrate of our Province 


of Ontario, representing Her Gracious Majesty, should 
honour us with his presence and co-operation on this occa- 
sion. For in whatever other respects we may have de- 
generated from the noble U. E. Loyalists of 1784, we may 
fain hope we may justly claim to be their rivals in firm 
attachment both to the THRONE under which it is our 
happiness to live, and to that great EMPIRE of which we 
fervently pray that the Dominion of Canada may long 
constitute an integral portion. 

As we conclude this address, we cannot forget the fact 
that the honour of being a descendant of U . E. Loyalists 
is shared by your own gracious and accomplished lady, a 
daughter of the distinguished house of Hagerman, and we 
venture to join her name with that of your Honour as we 
most sincerely wish you both the enjoyment of many years 
of happiness and prosperity in your public and private 

Signed on behalf of the General and Local Building 


Rector of Adolphustown. 


Chairman of Committee. 

ADOLPHUSTOWN, June 17th, 1884. 

The Lieut-Governor replied briefly, expressing his 
cordial thanks to the clergy and building committee for 
their invitation to take part in the proceedings of this 
memorable occasion, and re-echoing all the sentiments 
contained in the address. Brief speeches were made by 
a number of the clergy, that of Dean Lyster being par- 
ticularly appropriate. 

The ceremony completed, the Lieut-Governor and a 
large party were invited to the residence of J. J. Watson, 
Esq., where lunch was served. 


The Lieut. -Governor paid a visit to the camp of the 
15th Battalion, and was right royally entertained at the 
officers' mess. Chief Sampson Green was the first intro- 
duced to deliver an address, on " The Union of the Six 
Nations." He appeared in full Indian costume and was 
accompanied by other members of his band in full war 
paint and feathers. He first expressed the great pleasure 
it afforded him to take part in this important gathering, 
in honour of that patiotic and heroic band of refugees, 
who freely gave up their all as a sacrifice to their loyalty. 
He reviewed the traditional history of the Indians of 
America and especially of the Six Nations, of which he is 
a representative. He claimed that the Indians are the 
original Americans, and he felt proud of being a descen- 
dant of the aboriginal inhabitant of this continent. He 
also felt a pride in the fact that, in the day of trial, when 
the majority rebelled against British rule, his people re- 
mained firm in their allegiance, and fought, bled and died 
beside the pale face in defence of the Union Jack, to up- 
hold its sway on this continent. He explained how the 
Six Nations came into existence by an alliance of six 
smaller tribes against the oppression of the doughty, 
powerful and bloodthirsty Iroquois. He explained their 
system of government, by which all legislation originated 
with the Mohawks; after being approved it was then 
sent to another tribe and considered, adopted or amended 
as the case might be, until at last it reached Onondagas, 
or firekeepers, but the Mohawks were possessed of the 
power of veto. The Onondagas were called the fire- 
keepers because they always started the fire at the Great 
Council, kept it burning, and finally extinguished it when 
the Council was completed. At the present day, instead 
of lighting and extinguishing the fire, they make the 
opening and closing speeches. Finally the Iroquois 
themselves sued for admittance to the confederation, but 
their application was rejected. The tribe to which he 
belonged came from the Mohawk flats, remained at 


Lachine a short time and then came on to Tyendinaga, 
which spot was selected by Captain John. The reserve 
was named after the great Chief Tyendinaga, who led 
the Mohawks to Canada. When Christianity was proposed 
to the Six Nations it was considered, and four accepted, 
but two rejected the Christian faith, and to this day two 
of the tribes are Pagans. Although these tribes are 
Pagans, they may be fairly termed religious. They be- 
lieve in the existence of a Supreme Being, but instead of 
worshipping God in solemn exercises, they return thanks 
to the Great Spirit for pure water, an abundance of 
berries, the full corn in the ear, and all the blessings of 
peace and plenty, by dancing and other rejoicings. Their 
religion does not permit of stealing or lying, but they 
have no scruples in regard to Sunday work. He stated 
his conviction that the only way in which these tribes 
could be Christianized would be first to educate them and 
then place the Bible in their hands. What they can read 
they will accept, but what is told them by missionaries is 
received with diffidence or suspicion. He again referred 
to the loyalty of the Indians on many occasions when 
their adherence was severely tested. In 1812 many of 
the Indians fought with the British troops, and in 1837 
the speaker's father went to the front with his band, and 
returned with one scalp which was erected on a staff 
opposite the church, and a tree planted in honour of the 
event which is to be seen to this day. In 1866, with 17 
others, the speaker went to the front to assist in driving 
back the Fenian invaders, and in the future, as in the 
past, he was assured that his band would be found ever 
faithful to the old flag, and ever ready to shed their blood 
in its defence. The Mohawks, when they landed, con- 
sisted of fifteen families; they now number over 1,000 
souls. They at first owned the whole township of Tyen- 
dinaga, but they had sold a portion, and the money, 
$127,000, is invested with the government to provide 
schools and religious instructors. They have now four good 


schools and two churches. He thanked the committee 
for the invitation to participate in this gathering, which 
he considered a great honour to himself and his people. 
The next speaker was CAPT. GRACE of Lindsay. He 

a matter of good fortune for me that the Lieut.-Governor 
is not here at present, and thus an opportunity is afforded 
me of expressing to you all my feelings, which I think 
are those of all gathered here, and in this my endeavour I 
crave your indulgence. The deeds which were the first 
causes of this settlement about us were those of men to 
whom principles and loyalty were nature's inspiration ; 
were men, who to us have shown examples worthy of 
imitation ; were men who by the sacrifice of home com- 
forts and luxuries have left their images of force of will 
and self denial. This morning's ceremony was a matter 
of gratification to all, and to us it was a bounden duty to 
commemorate the memory of those dear ones of old, with 
fitting tribute as far as the outward world is concerned; 
but one cannot help thinking of those brave men, who, 
one hundred years ago, landed here to the right, leaving 
happy homes, wealth and comforts, to seek out a new 
home for themselves in nature's forest, apart from monu- 
ments of stone and mortar, and appreciating them* by 
those feelings which emanate from the inspiration of our 
mothers, and we cannot help thinking of those good 
old men ofj yore, as Shakespeare did when he sug- 
gested by words, which in substance meant the folly of 
endeavouring to commemorate intrinsic worth in stone 
and mortar. Our country, a rich branch of the mother 
tree which springs from the Atlantic and casts her sha- 
dows to all quarters of the globe, it should be our 
bounden duty to sustain in proper relation to that mother 
tree, defending her interests by all in our power, which 
defence is but what we owe. 

It was with pleasure I listened to the various speeches 
of yesterday, and however dampened the love of our 


country might have been by the suggestion of one 
speaker, that dampening must have been removed by the 
next speaker, who in feeling terms related the story of 
the good old woman who said " We shall go and leave 
everything, and go to that country where we can breathe 
easily beneath that flag wlych is floating on our left." 

And as often as any defence of the country has been 
required, so often have the good men of the U. E. Loyal- 
ist blood and connection been ready and shared their 
parts, and it is no small pleasure for me to be the great 
grandson of the man who had the first Militia Battalion 
along these shores, and that zeal and that ardour, which 
seem at least intuitive, have not yet died out, as the 
young man who is now addressing you has the honour 
of a Captain's Commission in the Militia at present. 

It is an extreme satisfaction to me to be able to under- 
go a trip of even a hundred miles to meet so many 
friends, all of whom must necessarily feel the common 
tie which links us all ; and before closing, I must to Dr. 
Canniff, express my feeling of thankfulness and sym- 
pathy for his untiring efforts in the U. E. Loyalist cause. 
I am sure it was not without a very great deal of trouble 
he wrote his book, in which are pictured many proper 
examples for the youngest of us to bear well in mind. 

And now Mr. President, ladies and gentlemen, being 
under an obligation to you for your indulgence I beg to 

MR. G. E. HENDERSON, Q: C., Belleville, County Crown 
Attorney, said that while they must not forget men who 
had come from over the sea and their descendants, surely 
they had the right to honour the memory of their Loyalist 
fathers. These men had chosen a magnificent country, 
and had put its prosperity upon a grand foundation. 
He had had the opportunity of viewing the greater 
part of Europe, and he could assure them that nowhere 
was there a grander country than this. This Bay of 
Quint^ was as beautiful a sheet of water as any of the 


famed lakes of Switzerland. Canadians had a right to be 
proud of their land, and by no other means than by lov- 
ing it and honouring it could they make it a great coun- 
try. Without patriotism people were a mere collection of 
individuals, but if joined by a common bond of love of 
country, they became an irresistible power. Here every 
man was free ; here every man has the opportunity to 
carry on the great responsibilities that rested upon him 
in building up this country. They did not want to be 
joined to the United States. Canadians were anxious to 
live at peace with them. Glad of their successes and 
proud of their advance, but Canadians could show a coun- 
try whose prosperity was greater than that of the States. 
They had here a magnificent country, with schools and 
every advantage and luxury. In Europe he found people 
called farmers who worked day and night for their lords, 
who lived in walled cities.- They lacked in education and 
almost every form of enlightenment, and he himself had 
seen women harnessed along with cows drawirg a load 
on the public highway near Rome. He advised them to 
remain loyal to this grand country, and to the Empire 
under whose fostering care it had grown to its present 

MR. J. S. McCiJAiG, ex-M.P. for Prince Edward County, 
congratulated the people upon the large assembly, and 
made a brief speech dwelling upon the great work which 
the Loyalists had accomplished. 

MR. PARKER ALLEN dwelt upon the hardships suffered 
by the U. E. Loyalists as contrasted with the comfort en- 
joyed by the people he represented. It was necessary 
that the Committee should have money to proceed with 
the monument, and he asked that liberal subscriptions be 

The REV. C. E. THOMSON, M. A., Incumbent of St. 
Mark's Church, Carlton West, added a few words. He 
said in substance, that it gave him great pleasure, as the 
grandson of William Ruttan, one of the U. E. Loyalist 


settlers in Adolphustown, to be here on this occasion, and 
to help in doing honour to the memory of these noble 
men. He could not say much beyond what had been al- 
ready said, but would exhort them to be true to the tra- 
ditions of their forefathers, and to maintain, unuroken, 
their connection with the great and glorious empire for 
whose integrity their ancestors had so greatly suffered. 
He would remind them that on this day they were pass- 
ing through the anniversary of that great final struggle, 
whereby, on the field of Waterloo, the valour and endur- 
ance of the British army were so gloriously shown. 
Surely to have a share in such a magnificent achievement 
as this ought to make us most highly value the privilege 
of being British subjects. The time for speaking was 
short and he would now call on them to welcome him who 
was about to address them himself a Canadian born the 
grandson of a United Empire Loyalist, the son of one 
whom Canada was proud to number among her brilliant 
array of lawyers and judges, and the husband of a lady 
whose grandfather shared in the privations and toils of 
the first settlers in this very neighbourhood a gentleman, 
who had come here as 'the Lieu tenant-Governor of the 
Province to do honour to their celebration, to join with 
them in paying respect to the Loyalists of 1784 and to 
inaugurate the erection of well deserved monuments to 
their memory. 

LiEUT.-GovERNOR ROBINSON having arrived, was now 
introduced. He expressed regret at the delay that had oc- 
curred, but claimed that he was hardly responsible as the 
hospitality of the clergy and citizens, and afterward that 
of the militia had prevented him from appearing sooner. 
He considered it a duty for the Lieut.-Governor to show 
on every occasion his appreciation of the volunteer mili- 
tia and acknowledge the great things they had done for 
Canada. In 177() when the militia was 'tampered with 
they stood staunch to the old flag. In 1812 they had 
been equally brave in manifesting their allegiance, and on 


other occasions they had given proof of their valour and 
loyalty, and it was therefore a plain duty he should ex- 
press his appreciation of their organization and their 
services. While he was pleased to meet and receive the 
hospitality of the militia, he was equally well pleased to 
meet such a large gathering on an occasion so important to 
all Canadians. An American once discussing the various 
forms of government claimed that the Canadian was the 
best in existence, for while the people paid all the expenses 
the Governor had all the fun. Part of his fun was to re- 
ceive the hospitalities of to-day, to see so many good look- 
ing ladies and gentlemen, and to know they were all intent 
on one laudable purpose doing honour to the memory of 
those who had suffered everything for their loyalty. Up 
to a certain point the acts of the English Government in 
reference to the thirteen colonies were oppressive. U. E. 
Loyalists did not uphold that oppression, but when it 
came to revolt, and they saw something more than redress 
of the grievances was to be demanded, they, through years 
of war, showed heroism and devotion to their convictions 
seldom equalled in the history of any country. He recog- 
nised old names, having heard them from his youth. They 
were the names first known here by the arrival of the 
heroic band who landed on this point one hundred years 
ago. If we had a grand country we owed it to them. 
He had heard the question discussed as to whether the 
time has come when our political status should be 
changed ; it was not for him, as Lieut. -Governor, to dis- 
cuss these matters, but he would say to Loyalists that 
while others, be they gentlemen of the press or politicians, 
discuss that question the descendants of Loyalists can 
afford, knowing what they knew of old times, to mark 
time and listen to the discussions. They must recollect 
that if the medicine is given hurriedly, the physician 
must take good care that the death of the patient does' 
not follow. He hoped that the young people would mark 
this day, and that when fifty, or sixty, or seventy years 


hence they went over memory's records, they would think 
that this great celebration took place in the regime of 
Governor Robinson. Knowing the blessings we have re- 
ceived under the British Constitution we can afford to 
remain some time longer at any rate without changing 
our position. He regretted that he had not before visited 
the lovely scenes through which he passed to-day. He 
regretted that he had not before had the opportunity of 
making the acquaintance of the peopJe of this district, 
but he hoped this would not be his last visit. He hoped 
they would make this day a grand and permanent suc- 
cess. He hoped they would testify in a substantial way 
their regard for the Loyalists by subscribing liberally to 
the monument to be raised to their memory. 

Mr. D. W. ALLISON, M.P., though suffering from tempo- 
rary illness, consented, at the earnest request of many, to 
address the meeting. He dwelt with feeling on the scene 
which this point had witnessed a hundred years ago yes- 
terday, when the pilgrim band of Loyalists landed at the 
outskirts of an unbroken" wilderness, which Ontario was, 
and contrasted that with the scene of life and luxury 
which the place presented to-day. He dwelt also upon 
the strong contrast between the condition of the Loyalists 
and of their descendants of to-day. The first were vic- 
tims of persecution, leaving all for the sake of their loyalty 
to their country and to duty, braving hardships and pri- 
vations that they might have the flag they loved float 
over them. Their descendants possess the land which 
they had redeemed from the encumbering forests, and in 
that land peace and plenty reigned, so that even the poor- 
est enjoy advantages which the best of their fore- 
fathers could not hope to secure. The colonists of these 
days, instead of coming in the face of all hardships, had 
colonial roads and railways provided in advance of them 
in the wilderness. The first apples grown here were from 
seed brought over by the first party when they came. When 
the first crop was ripe the man who grew them called all 


the people of the settlement men, women and children 
together, and the apples were shared equally. Had that 
been in this day, the man who had the apples would have 
been governed by the law of supply and demand, and 
would have sold the apples to his neighbours at the high- 
est price. It had been stated that there was settlement 
at Kingston before here, but those people did not leave 
the States till after Independence was declared, and the 
date given for the Kingston settlement was too early for 
that. He contended this was the first settlement, and 
that the first line of this township of Adolphustown was 
the first line ever run by a surveyor in Ontario. He 
closed by expressing pleasure at the large turn out to do 
honour to the memory of Loyalists. 

Mr. J. J. Watson, Secretary of the Celebration Com- 
mittee read a letter of regret from the Hon. G. A. Kirk- 
patrick, Mr. A. F. Wood, M. P.P., and others, who had ex- 
pected to be present, but were unable to do so. He ex- 
plained also Sir John Macdonald's absence by stating that 
he had a letter from the Premie* stating that owing to 
ill health and press of work at home he would be unable 
to attend. This concluded the afternoon proceedings. 


The main feature of to-day's proceedings were speeches 
under the shade of the trees, and over the graves where 
the U. E. Loyalists lie buried. 

Mr. D. W. Allison, M.P., first occupied the chair, but 
he afterwards gaver pla,ce to Mr. Parker Allen. Both are 
Vice-Presidents of the Celebration Association, but Mr. 
Allison claimed priority for Mr. Allen. The principal 
speaker of the day was Dr. J. H. Sangster, of Port 
Perry. Dr. Sangster followed in the footsteps of the 
former speakers in contrasting the prosperity and com- 
fort of to-day with what the Loyalists found when they 
landed, and what they obtained for years after. He ela- 
borated the idea far more, however, and caused not a lit- 


tie amusement by going into the details of daily life, con- 
trasting, for instance, the young lady of to-day at her 
organ or piano, with her grandmother whose humble art 
was confined to the music of the wash-board. He" drew 
a brilliant picture of the future of Canada, the result of 
her mighty extent of fertile soils. The aristocracy of Eng- 
land proudly traced their lineage back to the uncultured 
invaders who came with William <ff Normandy. Much 
more proudly could the descendants of the Loyalists boast 
of their ancestry. He recognized the fact that Canada- 
would some day be independent ; but separation from the 
mother country could not come except in the natural way 
without straining or undue haste. Canada had not only 
a soil-bracing climate, but God-fearing earnest men and 
women, and he urged all Canadians to do what they 
could to make the future of the country commensurate 
with its possibilities. Above all, he spoke to the de- 
scendants of the Loyalists to show their zeal in Canada's 
cause. He called upon them because there was an intel- 
ligent pride of birth, of ancestry, which ennobled those 
who were moved by it and had a mission to promote the 
arts of peace, and to give to the world the highest stand- 
ard of national honour. He recognized the difficulties in 
the way, and the most pressing and important of these 
was the bitterness of party spirit. He urged upon the 
politicians of both parties to devote more attention to 
national, andf less to party advantages. 

MR. WM. ANDERSON, Warden of Prince Edward county, 
was then called upon. He stated that some of those who 
were here yesterday found fault with the carrying out of 
the arrangements. He thought that the committee had 
done all that men could do, and they deserved the thanks 
of the community for having given so many the opportunity 
to celebrate the noble deeds of the U. E. Loyalists. He com- 
mended the people here for having begun these cere- 
monies by the laying of the corner-stone of the church. 
He did not agree with Dr. Sangster in the fear that party 


rancour would ultimately wreck the ship of State. He 
believed very strongly that party feeling was less bitter 
now than it formerly was, and with the ameliorating 
Christian influences everywhere at work this improve- 
ment must continue. He dwelt upon the great work begun 
by the Loyalists, and contended that the Dominion, which 
they had founded, was^the first country in the world to- 
day. An American speaking with him had boasted of the 
fact that the States had gained their independence, that 
they were free, but their liberty was based upon the prin- 
ciples recognized in Britain, the benefit of which the peo- 
ple in Canada enjoyed, and their system of government, 
like that of Canada, was almost a copy of the British 

MR. ROBT. CLAPP, of Prince Edward county, spoke on 
behalf of that county, assuring the people of Adolphus- 
town that they had the sympathy of all in their com- 
memoration of the U. E. Loyalist centenary. 

Mr. J. J. WATSON, secretary of the committee, presented 
an excuse from Mr. W. A. Reeve, Toronto, who was to 
have addressed the meeting. 

The people soon after began to leave the grounds, and 
the Adolphustown U. E. Loyalist Centennial Celebration 
was over.

Thursday, July 3rd, 1884. 

THE United Empire Loyalist Centennial Celebration 
in Toronto was commenced on the morning of Thurs- 
day, July 3rd, 1884, in the Horticultural pavilion, the 
gathering taking the form of a public meeting, interspersed 
with musical selections. For a morning meeting the at- 
tendance was exceptionably good, the hall being about 
filled. There were a few Indians present, descendants of 
those who accompanied the Loyalists to Canada in 1784. 
In the rear of the platform hung the old flag presented in 
1813 to the 3rd regiment of York Militia, by the ladies of 
the county. Dr. Canniff, City Medical Health Officer, 
presided, and with him on the platform were His Worship 
the Mayor, the Lord Bishop of Niagara, Hon. Senator 
Allan, Lieut.-Col. G. T. Denison, Rev. Dr. McNab (Bow- 
manville), Rev. Leroy Hooker (Kingston), Rev. Dr. Scad- 
ding, Rev. Dr. Rose, Rev. Arthur Baldwin, Rev. Dr. Dew- 
art, Rev. S. A. Anderson (Penetang.), Rev. R. S. Forneri 
(Adolphustown), Rev. Dr. Withrow, Chief Green (Tyen- 
dinaga), Aid. F. C. Denison, Messrs. W. Kirby (Niagara), 
A. McLean Howard, D. B. Read, S. J. Vankoughnet, J. H, 


Morris, C. Haight, C. Egerton Ryerson, S. A. Denison, 
John Playter, Rodney Moore, J. Graham, A. N. Gamble, 
E. W. Clendenan, Chiefs Hill and Cross (Tyendinaga), Dr. 
Hillier (Bowmanville), and others. 

The Chairman said: Ladies and Gentlemen One hun- 
dred years ago the foundation of this province, the Pro- 
vince of Ontario, was laid by a band of pioneers known 
as the United Empire Loyalists. We meet to-day to com- 
memorate the event. In appearing before you as chair- 
man of this representative and brilliant gathering, it is 
only appropriate that I should briefly state why it is that 
I, so poorly qualified for the duties, should occupy so.dis- 
tinguished a position. It so happens that the Semi-Cen- 
tennial of the incorporation of the city of Toronto is the 
centennial of the settlement of the province. When my 
friend, Mr. W. B. McMurrich, while mayor of the city, in- 
augurated the scheme for the celebration of the Semi-Cen- 
tennial of Toronto, it occurred to my mind that it would 
be a fitting thing to combine with the Semi-Centennial of 
the capital of the province a celebration of the centennial 
of the province itself. The idea having been suggested 
to the Semi-Centennial Committee, it was decided to set 
apart Thursday of the Semi-Centennial week as the U. E. 
Loyalists' day. Mr. McMurrich having intimated to me 
that I should take the initiative in making the necessary 
arrangements for this day, I took steps to convene a meet- 
ing of those living in Toronto interested in the matter. 
Among those present at that meeting was His Honour the 
Lieu tenant-Governor, a distinguished descendant of a dis- 
tinguished United Empire Loyalist. The Lieutenant- 
Governor did me the honour to nominate me as perma- 
nent chairman of the committee, and I was consequently 
elected to the position. The next step in the matter was 
a convention of delegates from different parts of the pro- 
vince. At this convention my appointment as chairman 
was unanimously confirmed. I need not say that I esteem 
it a great honour to fill the position. The first duty rest- 


ing upon me is on behalf of the committee to welcome the 
representatives of the U. E. Loyalists who are assembled 
here, and the gentlemen who have honoured us, and the 
ladies who grace the occasion. Our celebration differs 
from the city's in this respect that it is held under the 
auspices of the Provincial Government. While the sub- 
stantial aid afforded by a Government grant is thankfully 
recognized, the great gratification is that the worthy U. 
E. Loyalist pioneers of the province were officially recog- 
'nized. In so doing the Government honours itself no less 
than the pioneers of the province. I am heartily glad to 
inform you that I do not feel called upon to occupy your 
time in speaking upon the subject which is foremost in 
our thoughts. I have already, on another occasion and at 
another place, said all I might have wished to say on the 
subject relating to the U. E. Loyalists, but in any case I 
should prefer to leave the matter in the hands of the gen- 
tlemen who are to speak gentlemen well known for their 
eloquence who will do ample justice to the occasion. 
The pleasing duty now devolves upon ine of carrying out 
the programme placed in your hands. 

Mr. Sims Richards sang "Rule Britannia" in a man- 
ner which evoked great enthusiasm, each verse being 
greeted with a round of applause. 

HON. G. W. ALLAN next addressed the meeting. He said : 
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen This is surely 
a week which will long live in the memories of the citi- 
zens of Toronto. It has been devoted to rejoicing, 
such as may most fittingly commemorate the fiftieth anni- 
versary of the it. corporation of our city, and he must surely 
possess but a dull and inimpressible soul, who has not 
caught something of the spirit and enthusiasm which have 
characterized the proceedings of the last few days. This 
morning, however, we are met here to commemorate an 
event which concerns more or less not only the citizens of 
Toronto, not only the people of Ontario, but all Cana- 
dians from the Atlantic to the Pacific, for in every part of 


this wide Dominion may still be found some of the de- 
scendants of that noble band of whom a Canadian poet 
has so worthily sung, that they 

" Loved the cause 

That had been lost ; and scorned an alien name, 
Passed into exile, leaving all behind 
Except their honour and the conscious pride 
Of duty done to country and to King." 

As the chairman has reminded us, just one hundred years 
ago did the Loyalists of America, abandoning home, pro- 
perty, every worldly gain and advantage, rather than 
forego their allegiance to the British Crown, and in the 
face of hardships and trials, such as might have daunted 
less brave and resolute hearts, come to what was then a 
wilderness, and become fathers and founders of what we 
now so proudly call the Dominion of Canada. It concerns 
us not, upon this occasion, to inquire into the merits of 
that unhappy quarrel which cost Great Britain the Ame- 
rican colonies. Ample justice has been done by the writ- 
ers and historians of that day, and down to the present 
time, to the motives and actions of the successful revolu- 
tionists. More than justice, in fact, for too many of the 
chroniclers of these events have not been satisfied with 
exalting the actors on the one side, and ascribing to them 
every virtue, but have most unjustly and ingeniously de- 
preciated and misrepresented those whose greatest crime 
was that they were ' loyal and true to their sovereign, and 
willingly sacrificed every worldly possession rather than 
sever their connection with the Empire." The United 
Empire Loyalists of one hundred years ago valued liberty 
as much as the revolutionists, but they would have secured 
the redress of their grievances by other means than by 
severing the tie which bound them to Great Britain, and 
when the party of revolution became the stronger and the 
die was cast, and the ultimate appeal made to the sword, 
then they drew it for the king, and never sheathed it 
until the struggle was over, when, rather than preserve 


land or possessions, or secure an immunity from persecu- 
tion and ill-treatment by the abandonment of their princi- 
ples, they determined upon that grand exodus which we 
commemorate this day, and manfully set their faces to- 
ward the wilds of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, and 
Canada, to become the first founders of what is yet, thank 
God, an integral part of the Empire, the fairest jewel in 
Britain's Crown. The history of the cruel persecution 
and unjust legislation of which the loyalists were made 
the subjects in most of the States of the American Union 
after the close of the struggle and the establishment of the 
Republic, were it only more generally known, would as- 
tonish those even among our own countrymen who have 
so much admiration to bestow upon the successful revolu- 
tionists, and but little sympathy for the heroism and 
endurance of those who remained faithful to the cause, as 
they believed it to be, of loyalty and honour. Undoubt- 
edly the revolution, owing to the bitter animosities 
engendered by the struggle, frequently led to cruel repri- 
sals and deeds of bloodshed on both sides ; but that could 
not justify the cruelty and persecution with which hun- 
dreds were visited who had taken no active part in the 
strife, or the expatriation of the many thousands whose 
only crime had been their refusal to renounce their alle- 
giance to their king. In a work called " Loyalists of 
America and their Times," written by that distinguished 
man, the late Rev. Egerton Ryerson, himself the son of a 
U. E. Loyalist, there occurs the following passage : " At 
the close of the war, instead of witnessing, as in the case 
of all other civilized nations at the termination of a civil 
war, however rancorous and cruel, a general amnesty, and 
the restoration of all parties to the rights and property 
which they enjoyed at the commencement of the strife, 
the Loyalists found themselves exiled and impoverished, 
and their enemies in possession of their homes and do- 
mains. It is true about three thousand of the Loyalists 
were able to employ agents, or appear personally to apply 


to the English Government and Parliament for compen- 
sation for their losses and suffering in maintaining their 
fidelity to .the Mother Country ; but these three thousand 
constituted not one-tenth of the Loyalists who had suf- 
fered losses and hardships during the civil war. Upwards 
of thirty thousand of them were driven from the home of 
their birth into what was then an almost untrodden wil- 
derness." Of these latter who found their way to Upper 
Canada and the sister provinces, many had fought stoutly 
for the royal cause all through the war, and many were 
the hairbreadth escapes, many the hardships they endured 
before they reached British ground in safety. Others had 
taken no active part in the contest, but were proscribed 
and banished because their sympathies were known to have 
been with the losing side. Others there were who, while 
the struggle lasted, had taken what they considered the 
side of duty and loyalty, but when hostilities were over 
and England had recognized the Independence of the 
States, were prepared to submit to the inevitable, and 
take their place as citizens of the Republic. But the 
cruel and vindictive treatment to which they were sub- 
jected, and the penal legislation enacted against them, 
drove them forth also to swell the ranks of those who 
were to become the founders of a Io3 r al British American 
Confederation, side by side with the Republic which had 
cast them out. The hardships which the Loyalists en- 
dured in making their way to Canada, and the suffering 
and privations experienced by many of them for years 
after their first settlement in the country, were far more 
severe than anything experienced by the Pilgrim Fathers 
during the first years of their settlement in Massachu- 
setts. From whatever point they came, long and weary 
was the journey which the refugees had to perform before 
they reached British territory. The majority of them 
travelled on foot ; others who were better off carried their 
little effects and young children on pack-horses, some- 
times bringing their cattle with them. Many bands made 


their way to Canada by Whitehall, Lake Champlain, Ti- 
conderoga, and Plattsburg, and then, turning southward, 
proceeded .to Cornwall, thence ascending the St. Law- 
rence, along the north shore of which many of them 
settled. Some among the earliest of the refugees had 
sailed round the coast of New Brunswick and Nova Sco- 
tia, and up the St. Lawrence to Sorel, wintering there, 
and the following spring prosecuting their voyage in boats, 
until they reached their destination at Kingston, then 
called Cataraqui. But the most common route from New 
York and that part of the States taken by the Loyalists 
was on the Hudson River to Albany, then up a branch 
of the Hudson called the Mohawk, and by a branch 
of that river, called Wood creek, to Oneida lake, and 
from Oneida lake to Lake Ontario by the Oswego River. 
Flat-bottomed boats, built or purchased by the Loyalists 
for the purpose, were used for their journey, and some idea 
may be formed of the arduous nature of that journey when 
we remember that the boats themselves had to be hauled 
and all their contents carried over the various portages, 
which are stated to have amounted altogether, on the whole 
journey, to more than thirty miles in extent. From Os- 
wego some of the Loyalists coasted along the eastern 
shore of Lake Ontario to Kingston, and then up the Bay 
of Quint^ ; others went westward along the south shore 
of the lake to Niagara and Queenston ; some pursued 
their course to the head of the lake at Burlington ; others 
made their way up the Niagara river to Queenston, con- 
veyed their boats over the portage of 10 or 12 miles to 
Chippewa, thence up the river and into lake Erie, and 
settled in what was called the Long Point country, now 
the County of Norfolk. As you all know, in order to re- 
ward the loyalty and to relieve the present necessities of 
the Loyalists and their families, as well as to provide for 
their future subsistence, the British Government made 
liberal grants of land in Upper Canada. The Bay of 
Quinte* was, I believe, among the first to be surveyed and 


settled, and the settlement of what was then called the 
Midland District commenced in the summer of 1783. 
The new settlers were provided with farming implements, 
building materials, and provisions, and some clothing for 
the first two years. And to quote from Dr. Ryerson's 
admirable work again " In order to put a mark of 
honour, as the Order in Council expressed, ' upon the 
families who had adhered to the unity of the Empire, and 
joined the Royal standard in America, before the treaty 
of separation in 1783,' a list of such persons was directed 
in 1789 to be made out and returned, to the end that their 
posterity might be discriminated from future settlers. 
From these emphatic words, the Unity of the Empire, it 
was styled the United Empire List, and they whose 
names were entered upon it were distinguished as United 
Empire Loyalists." And now one hundred years have 
passed away since that honour roll was drawn up the 
Loyalists of that day have passed to their rest, but far 
and wide throughout the Dominion their descendants 
may still be found glorying in the name and the traditions 
they have inherited, and by our gathering here to-day we 
desire to show that, as did our fathers in those days of old 
so do we desire to preserve the unity of the Empire, 
and shall ever honour the memory of those who cheer- 
fully risked every worldly gain or advantage, aye, even 
life and liberty, to preserve unbroken the ties which 
bound them to the Motherland. Nor can we forget, on 
an occasion like the present, how nobly the old Loyalist 
spirit showed itself when Canada subsequently became 
the battlefield during the war between Great Britain and 
the United States. It has been well remarked that the 
true spirit of the Loyalists of America was never shown 
with greater force than in the conduct of their descen- 
dants during the war of 1812-14*. As their fathers 
willingly risked life and fortune to maintain their con- 
nection with the Empire, so the sons were ready at the 
first trumpet call to leave wives and little ones' come 


forth from their homesteads, and acquit themselves like 
men in resisting the invaders who strove to wrest their 
adopted country from the British Crown. Sir, it is a just 
subject of pride to us Canadians that, thanks to the 
loyalty and the pluck of the militia and volunteers of 
those days, without distinction of class or nationality, the 
Canadas, with a frontier of more than 1,000 miles, and 
aided only by a few regiments of regular soldiers, resisted 
the whole military power of the United States for two 
years, at the end of which not one inch of Canadian soil 
was in possession of the invaders. Behind us hangs a 
flag [here the speaker turned and pointed to it] which I 
thought would not be an uninteresting relic to be dis- 
played on the present occasion. That flag was presented 
by the ladies of York in 1813 to the third regiment of 
York Militia. In some old manuscripts now deposited 
in the library of the Dominion Parliament, called the 
Coventry papers, and relating to the early history of 
Canada, and especially to the war of 1812, there is con- 
tained an account of the presentation of this flag, on be- 
half of the ladies of York, by Miss Powell, daughter of 
Chief Justice Powell, its consecration by Dr. Strachan, 
afterwards so well known as the venerable Bishop of 
Toronto, the reception of the colours by Major Allan, 
commanding the regiment on that day, and who after- 
wards became its colonel, and the committal of the colours 
to the charge of Ensigns Charles Denison and Edward 
Thompson. The records of those days show what good 
service the flank companies of this regiment did at the 
capture of Detroit and the glorious battle of Queenston 
Heights. And the old chronicler in the papers I have 
referred to goes on to speak of "the devotion and 
gallantry of those who had been so lately called away 
from the enjoyment of every peaceful blessing to defend 
their property and rights, and the safety and glory of 
this highly favoured portion of the British Empire." Mr. 
Chairman, I am persuaded that the same spirit that 


characterized the Canadian militiamen and volunteers in 
1812 and the Loyalists of 1784, breathes in their descen- 
dants now, and that my countrymen would be ready and 
prepared now, as then, if occasion should unhappily require, 
to defend not only " their rights and property," but the 
" safety and glory of this Dominion, as one of the most 
highly favoured portions of the British Empire." True, 
we do find a certain class of writers in our midst attempt- 
ing to decry loyalty to the Crown and attachment to Im- 
perial connection as inconsistent with true patriotism and 
pride in our country as Canadians. /I yield to no one 
in my love for my native country. The very soil of 
Canada is dear to me. I love her lakes and forests, her 
mighty rivers, her broad and fertile fields. I am proud 
of the past history of my country, of the wonderful pro- 
gress it has made not only in material prosperity, but in 
all that contributes to the higher life ot a nation ; its ad- 
vancement in education and culture, the fitness our peo- 
ple have displayed for free and constitutional government, 
and that observance of law and order which is the noblest 
characteristic of the Anglo-Saxon race. But all this is 
entirely consistent with a deep and abiding love and 
attachment to the Motherland, whose glorious traditions 
we inherit, and which are the common property 
ol every subject of the empire. Is there anything servile 
or unpatriotic in the feeling which makes the pulse beat 
more quickly and the heart swell, as we recall the glorious 
deeds of Britain's heroes on land and sea whether in the 
old days of Wellington and Nelson, Waterloo and the 
Nile, or, coming down to our time, to Balaklava or Inker- 
man ; or but yesterday, as we read of the rush of the 
Highlanders upon the foe at Tel-El-Kebir ? Is there 
anything servile or unpatriotic in that feeling of rever- 
ence and affection for all that is great and noble in the 
lives and characters and works of the long array of states- 
men, philosophers and poets, of men of mark in Church and 
State, that have made Britain's history the proud and 



glorious one that it is ? Is there anything servile or un- 
patriotic in that sentiment of deep and chivalrous loyalty 
to the sovereign which takes out of self and makes men 
dare to do and die from the highest motives of faith and 
duty ? Sir, are not all those feelings which elevate and 
ennoble a people ? And if it is good for us to recall to-day 
the loyalty and patriotism, the bravery and endurance of 
our Loyalist forefathers, shall we abandon the rich heri- 
tage of centuries, and cut ourselves and our children 
adrift from the glorious memories and associations which 
now belong to us Canadians as members of the one great 
United Empire ?/I am persuaded of better things of my 
countrymen. The old Loyalist spirit is not extinct. It 
may not babble as loudly of its loyalty as some do of 
their independence, but the stream runs deep, though 
noiselessly, and that time, I trust, will never come when 
Canada will cease to be a part of the Empire, and when 
we shall cease to bear the proud name of British Canadians. 
"Home, Sweet Home" was then sung by Miss K. C. 
Strong, after which Mrs. Charlotte Morrison recited the 
following original poem, specially written for the occasion 
by the Rev. LeRoy Hooker, ^of Kingston: 


In the brave old Revolution days, 

So by our sires 'tis told, 
Kiug's-men and Rebels all ablaze 
With wrath and wrong, 
Strove hard and long ; 

And, fearsome to behold, 
O'er town and wilderness afar, 
O'er quaking land and sea and air, 
All dark and stern the cloud of war 

In bursting thunder rolled. 

Men of one blood- of British blood, 
Rushed to the mortal strife ; 
Men, brothers born, 
In hate and scorn 
Shed each the other's life. 
"Which had the right and which the wrong 
It boots not now to say : 


But when at last 
The war-cloud passed, 
Cornwallis sailed away ; 
He sailed away, and left the field 
To those who knew right well to wield 
The powers of war, but not to yield, 
Though Britons fought the day. 

Cornwallis sailed away, but left 
Full many a loyal man, 
Who wore the red, 
And fought and bled 
Till Royal George's banner fled 
Not to return again. 

What did they then, those loyal men, 
When Britain's cause was lost ? 
Did they consent, 
And dwell content 

Where Crown, and Law, and Parliament 
Were trampled in the dust. 

Dear were their homes where they were born ; 

Where slept their honoured dead : 
Aoid rich and wide 
On every side 

The fruitful acres spread ; 
But dearer to their faithful hearts 

Than home, or gold, or lands, 
Were Britain's laws, and Britain's crown, 
And Britain's flag of long renown, 

And grip of British hands. 

They would not spurn the glorious old 

To grasp the gaudy new. 
Of, yesterday's rebellion born 
They held the upstart power in scorn 

To Britain they stood true. 

With high resolve they looked their last 
On home and native land ; 
And sore they wept, 
O'er those that slept 
In honoured graves that must be kept 
By grace of stranger's hand. 

They looked their last and got them out 
Into the wilderness, 
The stern old wilderness ! 
All dark and rude 
And unsubdued ; 
The savage wilderness ! 


Where wild beasts howled 
And Indians prowled ; 
The lonely wilderness ! 
Where social joys must be forgot, 
And budding childhood grow untaught ; 
Where hopeless hunger might assail 
Should Autumn's promised f i uitage fail 
Where sickness, unrestrained by skill, 
Might slay their dear ones at its will ; 
Where they iimst lay 
Their dead away 
Without the man of God to say 
The sad sweet words, how dear to men, 
Of resurrection hope. But then 
'Twas British wilderness ! 
Where they might sing, 
God save the King ! 
And live protected by his laws, 
And loyally upheld his cause. 
'Twas welcome wilderness ! 
Though dark and rude 
And unsubdued ; 
Though wild beasts howled 
And Indians prowled ; 
For there their sturdy hands, 
By hated treason undenled, 
Might win from th Canadian wild 
A home on British Lnds. 

These be thy heroes, Canada? 

These men of proof, whose test 
Was in the fevered pulse of strife 
When foeman thrusts at foeman's life ; 

And in that stern behest, 
When right must toil for scanty bread, 
While wrong on sumptuous fare is fed, 

And men must choose between ; 
When fight must shelter 'neath the skies, 
While wrong in lordly mansion lies, 

And men must choose between ; 
When right is cursed and crucified, 
While wrong is cheered and glorified, 

And men must choose between. 

Stern was the test, 

And sorely pressed, 

That proved their blood best of the best. 
And when for Canada you pray, 

Implore kind Heaven 

That, like a leaven, 
The hero-blood which then was given 
May quicken in her veins alway ; 
That from those worthy sires may spring, 

In number as the stars, 


Strong-hearted BODS, whose glorying 

Shall be in Right, 

Though recreant Might 
Be strong against her in the fight, 

And many be her scars ; 
So, like the sun, her honoured name 
Shall shine to latest years the same. 


The Chairman then announced that Judge Dean, of 
Lindsay, who was to have delivered an address, was un- 
able to be present. His place would be taken by Chief 
Green, one of the descendants of the well-known warrior 
Brant who had fought side by side with the U. E. Loy- 
alists who came into the wilderness a hundred years ago. 

CHIEF GREEN, a Mohawk Indian of Tyendinaga, then 
came forward, and was received with loud applause. He 
said it gave him great pleasure to meet there the descen 
dants of the U. E. Loyalists, assembled to commemorate 
one of the greatest events in the history of the country. 
The old Loyalists had chosen to sacrifice everything in a 
country where they were prospering, and came out to the 
Canadian wilderness rather than be untrue to their king. 
He felt that they had chosen in favour of the right. 
There was a time when the whole continent .of North 
America was occupied by the race he represented. They 
often fought among themselves. One day a very wise 
head among the Mohawks suggested a scheme for the 
consolidation of several tribes for mutual protection a 
scheme which was adopted, and led to the organization 
of the Six Nation Indians, whom he now represented. 
In the course of time England and his nation made a 
treaty, which his tribes had since loyally observed. In 
fact, when the rebellion took place, his nation removed 
from New York State, and sacrificed their territory, in 
order to accompany their white Loyalist brethren to this 
country. They did more than this; for they took up 
arms and fought and died for England. The United 
States gained their independence, but his forefathers re- 


mained under British connection. The Six Nation Indi- 
ans were all Christians, belonging to the Church of Eng- 
land, which they loved. They formed a settlement on the 
shores of the Bay of Quintl, and built a church there. 
He here remarked that a communion service on the plat- 
form had been presented to his forefathers by Queen Anne. 
He proceeded to say that of late years his people had 
made much progress in civilization and Christianity. 
They had to-day two churches, one of which had cost 
$7,000, and the other $3,500. They had four good schools 
in the reservation, and two white lady teachers. In 1879 
he went to England and made an appeal to the people 
there on behalf of one of the schools. He succeeded in 
his mission, and found the English the kindest people 
under the sun. He found them as his forefathers had 
represented them to be ladies and gentlemen of the first 
rank. He obtained a grant in England to carry on the 
work for twenty years. He was proud to be there to 
associate with the descendants of the U. E. Loyalists, even 
as his forefathers had associated with their forefathers. 
He believed Canada ranked with any nation on the globe 
acccording to its age. 

Mr. Warrington then sang in splendid style the well- 
known patriotic song, " If England to Herself be True," 
and in answer to an enthusiastic encore, sang " Who's 
for the Queen ? " with equal spirit. 

The Chairman here exhibited the Communion set pre- 
sented to the Mohawk Indians in 1711. During the re- 
bellion the Indians buried them to preserve them, and dug 
them up again after the war. He then, in introducing Lieu- 
tenant-Colonel G. T. Denison, said the Denison family in 
old times had done good service on the borders. In the war 
of 1812 and 1837 they were found at their post of duty. 
They took an active part in securing the country to the 
Canadians. The Denison family were not only soldiers, 
but descendants of the U. E. Loyalists, and the United 
States Jost a good deal when they lost this famliy. 



Chairman, ladies, and gentlemen, we meet to-day in honour 
of the U. E* Loyalists who a hundred years ago came here 
and founded this province. Their coming was the result 
of their loyal adherence to a great principle. It was not 
so much a question of what is called loyalty as devotion 
to a particular type of government. 

The great question fought out in the United States, in 
1776, was whether they should be ruled by a republic or a 
monarchy, and when the U. E. Loyalists were defeated in 
the States they came here, and established this province 
upon monarchical institutions. Tn 1812, an attempt was 
made to annex this country by the people of the United 
States, and to make us a republican people. This was a re- 
petition of the struggle between the two forms of govern- 
ment. At that time Upper Canada was a sparsely settled 
community, and we had about 80,000 of a population, al- 
most altogether consisting of U. E. Loyalists and their de- 
scendants, while the United Sates had a population of 
something like ten millions. The odds were enormous, in- 
finitely greater than they would be to-day. Fortunately 
we had at that time the right kind of a man at the head of 
affairs, General Brock. He was one of the great men of 
all history. He called together the volunteers of this city, 
told them what they would have to encounter ; told them 
what odds were against them, and asked them to follow 
him to the front. Every one of them responded. Invasion 
followed invasion, and although the odds were always 
against us, the fortune of war was with us. Of the vic- 
tories over the invaders we all know. At the end of the 
fight we had not lost a single inch of Canadian territory 
while we had the State of Michigan, and had burned the 
capital city of our enemies. 

This was the lesson we should teach our children, 
and keep it ever freshly remembered as a ground of 
hope for us, to give us confidence in the future. The 
U. E. Loyalists deserved the greatest credit for the 


gallant stand they made in 1776 for monarchical in- 
stitutions, but they deserve ten thousand times more 
credit because, when the odds were against them, they 
maintained their rights, and handed them down unim- 
paired to us. The people of Canada live in the freest coun- 
try on the face of the globe, and must appreciate what the 
U. E. Loyalists have done for them in preserving it for 
their descendants. 

Let us compare the position of Canada to-day with 
that of the United States. We have every liberty to 
do what is right, but we have no license to do what is 
wrong. Our laws are honestly administered. Life 
and property are safe in this country. In everything 
which affects the individual, this is the freest and the 
best country. In the State of Kentucky, in ten years, 
there have been 700 murders, and yet there has been 
in that time only one hanging by process of law. There 
were 1,500 convictions for murder across the line in 1883, 
and only 93 hangings, while 118 people were lynched. 
The chances of a murderer escaping after he is convicted 
in the United States are sixteen to one. The number of 
murders in England amount to 237 per annum in each 
ten millions ; in the United States they are 820, or 
three times as many. Are we not better off than the peo- 
ple of a country where they carry deadly weapons with 
impunity ; where lax divorce laws have shaken the sanc- 
tity of the marriage tie ; where the principal, if not the 
sole test^of respectability is wealth, and where lynch law 
spasmodically attempts to remedy the lax administration 
of justice by the regular courts, and for the fact that we 
are living under a better and freer system, we have to 
thank the U. E. Loyalists, who saved us from annexation. 

Again, our system of government is simpler, cheaper and 
more dignified. Our neighbours have never considered 
what it costs them to elect the head of the State every 
four years. I was told by a prominent gentleman con- 
nected with one of the party organizations in one of 


the States, that the expenses of his party in that State 
alone amounted to $600,000 for the Presidential election. 
Counting the expenditure for all the States and for both 
parties, it would seem that the cost of an election was 
$40,000,000, or at the rate of $10,000,000 a year. That 
sum would pay the whole expense of maintaining the 
Royal houses of England, Austria and Germany. And 
with all the expense, they had at the head of the 
States simply the representative of a faction, and very 
often only of the wire-pullers and tricksters of that fac- 
tion. Without expense, without labor, worry or anxiety, 
we Canadians have a sovereign respected by all political 
parties, and by all the world. For this we have to thank 
the United Empire Loyalists. 

In talking of loyalty to the Queen, I speak of her as the 
Queen of Canada. I am as loyal to Canada as any man 
upon its soil, and it is because of that loyalty to Canada, 
and Canada alone, that I am loyal to the Queen, believing 
that living under the institutions of which the Queen is 
the representative, Canadians will become a better and a 
greater race of people. 

There is another point to be considered in refer- 
ence to this great question of republicanism and mon- 
archy. The great objection to a republican form of 
government is that it is very uncertain and unreliable. 
If we look at the republics of the world we shall find that 
these republics have rarely, if ever, been a success, except 
among poor, sparsely settled countries. The republican 
form of government is liable to lead to constant civil war. 
That is the experience of history. The republics of South 
America and of Mexico have had civil wars and blood- 
shed every few years. Ever since they destroyed the legi- 
timate monarchy in France, they have had revolution and 
bloodshed about every fifteen years. But it might be 
said that that is not the case in the United States. I 
think that the same thing is beginning there. In 1830 
before which date they did not have the same time to 


give to politics when General Jackson was elected Presi- 
dent, there was a narrow chance of parties breaking out 
in civil war ; but a vigorous man being at the head of 
affairs that was prevented. In 1860, when the Demo- 
cratic party was defeated, the county was visited by 
one of the most terrible civil wars known in history, one 
which loaded their country with debt, and drenched their 
fields with blood. In 1876 there was another great risk 
of war, which certainly would have taken place had the 
late war not occurred so recently. Twenty years will not 
pass without civil war again breaking out in that country, 
and if Canadians know what is good for them they will have 
nothing to do with them, or their form of government. 
I wish to say a few words about independence. This is 
the same old question under another form. It is the 
Republican idea, as opposed to the Monarchical, and 
it is nob the first time it has come up in this country. 
It came up in 1776, when Arnold and Montgomery came 
here and tried to annex the country. But the lately-con- 
quered French stood by the Crown, and the scheme was 
defeated. In 1812 the same question was up, and by the 
lavish shedding of Canadian blood our rights and liberties 
were preserved. In 1837 a rebellion was begun, headed 
by a stranger, a new-comer, but the loyalists of that day 
came out in defence of the constitution. It is true there 
were then many grievances to be remedied. The gov- 
ernment was by an irresponsible executive. There really 
'were grievances, but the descendants of the Loyal- 
ists knew that no matter what the grievances were 
they were nothing compared with what they would 
have had to submit to in a republic. The Loyalists 
turned out en masse and the rebellion was put down. 
In 1849, a few prominent politicians, a little annoyed 
about some political matter, signed an annexation mani- 
festo, but instantly the feeling of the Canadians was 
shown to be so strongly against them that it dropped at 
once. In 1871, the Canada First movement began. I 


was a member of that party, and had a good deal to do 
with it, because I consider Canada before any other coun- 
try in the world. But one gentleman made the mistake 
of believing that some of the members were in favour of 
independence, and speaking in that spirit killed the thing 
with a breath. Many gentlemen left it, feeling that their ac- 
tion was likely to be misunderstood. 

From whom comes this cry for independence ? Not 
from the real Canadians, but from a few hangers on 
of the newspaper press a few wanderers and Bohe- 
mians men who have lived indifferently in Canada and 
the States, and have never been satisfied anywhere 
men without an atom of stake in the country. And 
do you think that the people of Canada are goi^g to 
submit themselves to the guidance of such men ? Never. 
The independence party in Canada can almost be counted 
on one's fingers and toes. The movement did not amount 
to anything, and the moment the people of Canada thought 
it did, the real feeling of the country would manifest it- 
self. I would like to ask these gentlemen whether they 
thought it fair and honest of strangers to come here to air 
their theories, trying to interfere with a prosperous, happy, 
and contented people a people who have no griev- 
ances they cannot easily remedy themselves. What these 
men want, goodness only knows. If Canadians are not an 
independent people, I do not know where such a people 
can be found. 

I have read their arguments, and they do not amount 
to anything. They say," If we were independent we 
could have an officer of our force in command of our 
militia." The law which requires an officer of the 
British Army was passed by the representatives of the 
Canadian people, and can be repealed by the same power. 
They find fault because we have the Privy Council as a 
Court of final appeal. I look upon it as a great blessing 
that Canadians have a tribunal so learned and impartial, 
so free from all bias through party squabbles, to adjudi- 


cate on points of difference. Independent nations often 
refer questions of difference to foreign tribunals, yet 
they do not forfeit their freedom by so doing. 

There is not a single point in which we are not as well off 
as our neighbours. But we have this also, we belong to the 
greatest empire the world has ever seen. We have all 
the credit and respectability attached to being connected 
with so great an empire, and our ambition should be to 
become the most powerful part of that empire. They say 
a Canadian cannot hold his head up because he does not 
belong to an independent nation that if he did he would 
be a great fellow. They try to appeal to our vanity. If 
we were independent, would we be any greater a people 
than we are to-day. Take Brazil, an independent empire, 
with about the same territory, twice the population, and 
three times the revenue of Canada, and who would not 
rather be called a Canadian than a Brazilian? Who would 
not rather be a Canadian than a Mexican ? The whole of 
their arguments were fallacies. The reason we are 
proud of being Canadians is that Canada is not only 
one of the finest countries on the face of the globe, and 
going to have as fine a population as can be found 
anywhere, but also that it is a part of the great em- 
pire to which we are proud to belong. 

I have endeavoured to show that every attempt to bring 
about independence in the past had been put down by the 
Canadian people by bloodshed, and there could not be any 
attempt to bring Republican institutions into this country 
without bloodshed. I ask these wanderers, these Bohe- 
mians, therefore, whether it is right of them to come here 
and interfere with us, when they have the opportunity of 
going to the United States, where they can get a Gov- 
ernment exactly as they want it where they can 
find a similar climate, and a people speaking the 
same language. They have no excuse to remain here, 
for when they can so easily get what they want 
they should go to the United States, and leave us alone. 


We do not want them, and we can get on very well with- 
out them. 

It must not be forgotten that all the advantages 
we have to-day we owe to our ancestors, the U. E. 
Loyalists, and the sacred trusts handed down by them 
should be passed on intact and unimpaired to our child- 
ren. That is the duty of this generation, and it is to the 
descendants of the Loyalists that we must look to see that 
this is done. I wish to quote to you some words writ- 
ten by Mr. Haliburton, of Nova Scotia, son of the cele- 
brated author of " Sam Slick " : " Whenever we lower 
those we love into the grave, we entrust them to the bosom 
of our country as sacred pledges that the soil that is thus 
consecrated by their dust shall never be violated by 
a foreign flag or the foot of a foe, and whenever the 
voice of disloyalty whispers in our ear, or passing discon- 
tent tempts us to forget those who are to come after us, 
or those who have gone before us, the leal, the true, and 
the good, who cleared our forests, and made the land they 
loved a heritage of plenty and peace to us and to our 
children, a stern voice comes echoing on through thirty 
centuries ; a voice from the old sleepers of the pyramids ; 
a voice from a mighty nation of the past that long ages 
has slumbered on the banks of the Nile. ' Accursed be 
he who holds not the ashes of his fathers sacred, and for- 
gets what is due from the living to the dead.' " 

Let our energies be devoted to building up our country, 
improving our commerce, strengthening our defences, in- 
creasing our confidence in oursel ves and in each other, and 
it will not be many years or generations before Canada will 
hold a place in the British Empire as the most import- 
ant and principal part of it. To the United Empire Loy- 
alists and their descendants we must look to see that this 
is done. I can not sit down without quoting those ad- 
mirable words of the Rev. Mr. Leroy Hooker : 

" Stern was the test, 
And sorely pressed, 
That proved their blood best of the best, 


And when for Canada you pray 

Jiuplore kind Heaven 

That, like a leaven, 
The hero-blood which then was given 
May quicken in her veins alway ; 
That from those worthy sires may spring, 

In number as the stars, 
Strong-hearted sons, whose glorying 

Shall be in Right, 

Though recreant Might 
Be strong against her in the fight, 

A nd many be her scars ; 
So like the sun, her honoured name 
Shall shine to latest years the same.." 

Miss Foster, of Guelph, then sang a " A Loyalist Song," a 
beautiful production, the beauties of which were fully 
brought out by Miss Foster. She was loudly applauded, 
and the people insisting on a recall. She came back and 
repeated the first verse. Mrs. Morrison then gave another 
reading, " Loyalist Days," commemorative of the traits 
and deeds of the United Empire Loyalists, which was 
loudly applauded. The author is Mrs. Kittson, of Sorel, 
P. Q. Thus it runs : 


In Memory of the United Empire. Loyalists. Dedicated to their deicendant$. 

The earliest ages claim immortal heroes. 

Among the stars great conquerors' names are found. 
The hosts of Israel sing, " Arise, Jehovah," 

The dust they trod is con>ecrated ground. 
Greece is one shrine of earth's anointrd warriors, 

Our souls are with their self devotion thrilled ; 
A thought of Regulus lights up the grandeur 

Which lingers round the city seven hilled. 

The last " Adieu" of Fowland's silvery bugle 

Is heard amid the snowy Pyrenees ; 
A voice floats from the rugged slopes of Sempach 

On every waft of mountain-hallowed breeze. 
The heavens bow with majesty of triumph, 

The ocean winds those sounds of victory keep, 
The muffled drums of armaments are rolling, 

The sea-kings hear the clarions of the deep. 

O'er pathless cliffs and storm -emblazoned ramparts, 
Above the flow of an impetuous tide, 


The banners of rich sunset cloud saluted 
Thefleur de-Hg, the New World's virgin bride. 

The dawn mist hung around the plains o Abraham, 
The tears of war dropped swiftly, brightly red ; 

When conquest left the death r< >11 on the altar 
The morning light its purest halo shed. 

The river gleams with monumental marble, 

W'hile, foaming round the battle cresttd rock, 
The regal waves, beneath the heights of Queenston, 

In every ripple write the name of Brock. 
Has Laura Secord any living homage ? 

When strife's tornado burst upon our shores, 
Through lines of sentry and through Indian forests 

That soldier's wife her timely warning bore. 

Has history crowned the staunchly bold defenders, 

Who nobly braved the conflict's darkest hour 
The men wtto for the heritage of Britons 

Left bri-fhtning spheres of stately wealth and power ? 
They fought, to live beneath the Old Flag's shadow, 

The sceptr'd lion's foremost sons were they, 
Who halted not at breastworks formed of bayonets, 

Through gates of fire they held their onward way. 

The U. E. Loyalists were never vanquished, 
Though many sleep in their blood-sprinkled ground, 

As true as steel by battle lightnings tempered, 
As true as steel, they " unto death were found." 
Their swords were in their own brave keeping buried. 

Else from their scabbards they would leap in flame 
To hear the words by recreant statesmen uttered, 

Who would defile the Royalty of Fame. 

The vast Dominion from each frontier summons 

A mighty host with memories of the past ; 
The U. E. Loyalists unfold their banners, 

And rouse the echoes with a trumpet blast. 
Sons of the brave, remember your forefathers, 

Shine kindly words f r< >m every warrior grave, 
Shreds of the Union Jack, in battle cloven, 

O'er hero dust your glorious records wave. 

Mr. E. W. Schuch sang in splendid style, and with 
great feeling, the well-known Canadian patriotic song, 
" The Maple Leaf for Ever." 

THE BISHOP OF NIAGARA said he had felt that they 
had not recognized, as fully as they ought to have done on 
that occasion, that the Loyalists were as a body imbued 
with a true religious spirit, and they had been told that 
more by their red brother that morning than by their 


white brethren. He could not help feeling deeply that 
what Chief Green had said was perfectly true, and there- 
fore he asked the privilege of concluding the service by 
giving them, with God's permission, the apostolic bene- 
diction. His Lordship pronounced the benediction, after 
which the gathering dispersed. 

His Honour Lieutenant-Governor Robinson gave a re- 
ception at Government house during the afternoon be- 
tween the hours of three and five o'clock. There was a 
large and representative gathering of descendants of U. E. 
Loyalists from all over the Province. Captain Merritt, 
G.G.B.G., acted as A.D.C. in plage of Capt. Geddes, who 
was unavoidably absent from the city. Following is a

The band of the 10th Royal Grenadiers was present 
and played for some time in the beautiful grounds, 
outside the conservatory. Several interesting addresses 
were delivered, his Honour being the first to speak. He 
began by saying that he had just returned from hearing 
speeches that did justice to heroic men. He was glad to 
welcome the descendants of those heroes at Government 
House, and would like the people of Ontario to know that 
there is at least one place in this Province where politics 
do not intrude, and where all were welcome. He referred 
to his being a descendant of a U. E. Loyalist, and was 
only sorry that he could not do full justice to their 
memory. No words could adequately describe the loyalty 
and devotion of the heroes who shed their blood to defend 
the grand old flag that now floated above Government 
House. Sons of such sires could not forget their deeds, 
and looking back through the long vista of a hundred 
years we see them forsaking the land that had been 
theirs, to carve their way through the forests of Ontario. 
They left their broad acres and the graves of their 
fathers through their love for Britain and British insti- 
tutions. It gave him pleasure, he said, to welcome the 
American gentlemen present. He had smoked the pipe 
of peace with them, and hoped that none but the most 
friendly relations would ever exist between Canada and 
the American Republic. He had been in New York 
when they were celebrating Evacuation Day. At the re- 
ception which he attended the health of the Queen was 
drunk with the greatest enthusiasm, and he would never 
forget the remarks made by the chairman on that occasion. 
Said he : " When I look around and see with what enthus- 
iasm the health of the Queen of England has been received, 
I cannot but think that after all the evacuation so far as we 
are concerned was not a thorough success. It was really a 
dismal failure, for although we succeeded in getting rid of 


a few Englishmen then, they have come back in over- 
whelming numbers, and thousands of English vessels 
carry our commerce round the world, and we could but ill 
afford to lose them." Although a reverse was sustained 
by England in that desperate struggle of a century ago 
it has not been without lasting benefit. It has founded 
the supremacy of the English race, and it was his prayer 
that it might ever continue. The labour demonstration 
of the previous day had shown what Canadians were 
doing. They have a great heritage, thanks to their noble 
ancestors, and he was glad that all classes were trying to 
appreciate it. Numbers do not make a country, but the 
enterprise, intelligence, and loyalty of its inhabitants. 

His Honour then called upon Mr. Leroy Hooker, who 
commenced by saying that though not a descendant of a 
U. E. Loyalist he was as every Canadian should be, a 
United Empire Loyalist, one who believed in Canada, and 
in the great bright future that is opening for it. Mr. 
Hooker was followed by Mr. Kirby, of Niagara, a gentle- 
man widely known in Western Ontario. He spoke of the 
settlement in Upper Canada by the U. E. Loyalists, and 
gave a short account of some -of the stirring incidents that 
occurred during the war. 

Lieutenant-Governor Aikins, of Manitoba, was the next 
speaker. He paid a glowing tribute to the U. E. Loyalists, 
who gave up everything for king and country, and said 
that but for them the map would not show such a large 
extent of country on this continent under the flag of 
Britain as it does. 

The Rev. Mr. Anderson, who has been among the Cana- 
dian Indians almost from childhood, followed. Of the In- 
dian Loyalists who fought side by side with their white 
brothers, he spoke in the most favourable terms. But for 
them the tide of battle would often have turned against 
us, and a debt that can never be fully paid is due to the 
aborigines who fought for us. 

His Honour Lieutenant-Governor Robinson then made 
a few additional remarks, and the visitors withdrew,

August 14th, 1884. 

ON the 14th of August, 1884, at Niagara, on historic 
ground, in a glade of the Oak Grove, a short dis- 
tance from the ruins of Fort George, on the scene of the 
first Parliament of Upper Canada, and in a neighbourhood 
watered by the blood of their forefathers, the descendants 
of the United Empire Loyalists, assembled to hold the 
final centennial celebration of the arrival of the Loyal- 
ists in this country. A large platform, thirty-six by 
twenty-four feet square, was erected for the committee 
and speakers. A tall flag-staff, in the centre of the plat- 
form, displayed the Union Jack, and at each of the four 
corners rose tall flag-staffs supporting British ensigns. 

In front was a large painting of the Royal arms, and 
around the platform were hung graceful festoons of oak 
and maple. Some tablets were on the sides and front 
containing the names of men and officers of the Lincoln 
militia who fell during the war. 

Shortly after one o'clock there assembled representa- 
tives from all parts of the Province interested in the 


day's proceedings, Among them were His Honour the 
Lieutenant-Governor, the Lord Bishop of Niagara, the 
Archdeacons of Niagara and Guelph, Rev. Dr. Barclay, 
Toronto, Rev. Dr. McNab, Bowmanville, Hon. J. Burr 
Plumb, Colonel Denison, D. A. G , Colonel G. T. Denison, 
Major F. C. Denison, Chief Green and Chief Hill, Bay of 
Quintd Reserve, Chief Johnson, Colonel McFarland, Mr. 
Garrett, Mayor of Niagara, Rev. Charles Campbell, Mr. S. 
Neelon, M. P. P., Hon. J. G. Dickson, Niagara, Mr. J. His- 
cott, Warden of Lincoln, Mr. J. H. Morris, Toronto, Mr. 
A. Whitmore, Niagara, Lieutenant W. H. Meriitt, Toronto, 
who was acting aide-de-camp to the Lieutenant-Governor, 
Mr. Wm. Keys, Grantham, Mr. F. Lefroy, Mr. D. B. Read, 
Mr. W. Kirby, Niagara, Rev. Mr. Anderson, Penetangui- 
shene, Mr. W. H. Doel, J. P., Toronto, Mr. C. N. Ball, 
Judge Senkler, St. Catharines, Dr. Clark, Messrs. John 
Elliott, J. T. Gilkison, A. Cleghorn and W. Griffin, Brant- 
ford, Dr. Rolls, Sheriff Woodruff, Mr W. R. Pattison, St. 
Catharines. Mr. I. P. Wilson, County Clerk of Lincoln, 
Mr. L. D. Raymond, County Attorney, Mr. J. M. Dunn, 
and many others. The York Pioneers were well repre- 
sented, and there was also in attendance a delegation of 
48 Chiefs and Warriors from the Grand River reserve, 
headed by Chief A. G. Smith, official interpreter. Of 
this delegation two of the Chiefs were survivors of the 
war of 1812. They were Captain John Smoke Johnson, 
in his 93rd year, who was present at the battles of 
Queenston, Lundy's Lane, Black Rock, and other engage- 
ments on the Niagara frontier, and Chief John Tutelle, 
in his 9 1st year. The Tuscarora Indian band was also 
present and played some delightful selections during the 
afternoon. Around the platform about 2,000 persons 
were assembled. 

R. N. BALL, Esq., of Niagara, occupied the chair, and 
opened the proceedings. He said : 

MY FRIENDS, The time has arrived when we should 
begin the proceedings of the day. I am much pleased to 


see so large a gathering of the descendants of the IT. E. 
Loyalists on this classic ground, to do honour to the mem- 
ory of those noble men and women who, rather than live 
under an alien rule, left all the comforts and luxuries of 
their well filled homes that they might found in the then 
wilderness of Canada a new home, where the British flag 
might still wave over, and British laws still govern them. 
This decision, on their part, brought with it many hard- 
ships and disadvantages. But the result has fully justified 
the wisdom of their choice, and we, their descendants, now 
reap the benefits of their sacrifices in the possession of 
this noble Canada of ours, whose fertile acres reach 
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and containing within 
its bounds all the elements of a great and prosperous 
nation. A country of lakes and rivers, of noble forests 
and almost boundless prairies. A country that every de- 
scendant of the U. E. Loyalists will be proud to acknow- 
ledge as the land of his birth, and be willing to defend 
to the best of his power. Many a time, in my early 
youth, I have listened with wrapt attention as my grand- 
mother told me the story of the capture of Fort Wyoming 
by Butler and Brant (in which she was detained as be- 
longing to a loyal family), of the long journey from the 
Mohawk river to Oswego, through the then almost un- 
broken forest, traversed only by an Indian trail ; how, 
on arriving at Oswego, she and others embarked in an 
open boat for Fort Niagara ; how they were nine days 
on the lake and five days without food except the hips of 
the wild rose which they gathered on shore, and how an 
Indian woman was sent ahead for supplies, which came 
in the form of hard cakes, strung on a pole, and carried 
by two swift Indians, but which came none too soon. 
These and many incidents of savage cruelty, and una- 
voidable hardships, made me luok with wonder at the 
kindly old face, as she told me the tales of olden times. 
As Chairman, it is out of place for me to make a long 
speech, especially as our time is limited, and there are 


many present, who are better qualified than I am to do 
justice to the occasion. I will, therefore, now call upon 
the Lord Bishop of Niagara to open the proceedings with 

Bishop of Niagara, then made the following prayer : 

" O Almighty everliving God ! who in the inscrutable 
ways of Thy providence didst permit the early settlers of 
this fair land to be driven from their comfortable proper- 
ties in the revolted colonies ; from their farms, their mills 
and their stores, out of pure attachment to the British 
throne ; and after enduring many and grievous hardships 
and sufferings Thou didst bring them to this glorious land 
to hew out for themselves new homes in the wilderness ; 
grant, we beseech thee, O Lord, that the descendants of 
those noble parents may ever carry out the principles by 
which those who settled here an hundred years ago were 
guided ; may be loyal and devoted servants of the Crown ; 
faithful servants of God ; honest and industrious members 
of society and good neighbours ; continually striving to 
adorn the doctrine of God, their Saviour, in all things, 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." 

the first speaker. He thanked the chairman and the 
audience for their kind reception of him. This was the 
third time he had been called upon to greet the descend- 
ants of the U. E. Loyalists gathered together to celebrate 
the deeds of their ancestors. At Adolphustown, on the 
shores of the beautiful Bay of Quinte*, thousands had 
gathered to do honour to the noble dead, and but a few 
weeks ago he had had the pleasure of meeting represent- 
atives of the U. E. Loyalists from all parts of the Prov- 
ince, at Government House. The spot where they now 
stood was historic ground. Here in this old town of 
Niagara the first Parliament of Canada assembled, and 
they then passed the jury law, and an act declaring that 
from that time there should be no slavery in Upper Can- 


ada. Those were great and good laws, and the fact that 
they were so early passed was a just cause of pride to 
Canadians. Col. Littlehales, one of the staff of Governor 
Simcoe, made the first trip through the interior of thia 
Province, of which there was any record. Part of that rec- 
ord was to the effect that before going to rest at a station 
near the site of the present city of London they sang " God 
Save the King," and now a hundred years after, at every 
public meeting held in any of the fine halls in which the 
people assemble they hear the strains of " God Save the 
Queen." He dwelt upon the heroism of the men of the 
Revolutionary War, and of the war of 1812, as an incen- 
tive to the people to cultivate the same spirit. He eulo- 
gized the Indians, representatives of whom he saw present. 
If above our heads floated the British flag to-day, they 
had to thank the Six Nation Indians in large measure 
for it. Some undertook to sneer at the feeling of loyalty, 
of which they were proud. But those men could not 
understand this feeling, but they, who were moved by it, 
felt that the spread of it among all people would be to 
the benefit of the country. The current literature of Eng- 
land showed that the fact was being recognized that the 
colonies were almost of as much value to the empire as 
was the empire to the colonies. If this feeling was car- 
ried to its' final outcome the result would be largely due 
to the bravery and loyalty of the United Empire Loyalists, 
who have saved to the British Crown this finest unoccu- 
pied part of the world. 

The Venerable BISHOP OF NIAGARA next spoke. He 
said : I am not the son of an U. E. Loyalist, in the strictest 
sense of the term, though my mother's father, Oapt. Eng- 
land, of the 47th Regiment British army, lost blood at 
Bunker's-hill, on the right side, (laughter) ; and after the 
war settled at Kingston, Upper Canada. I have ever ad- 
mired the noble body of men who sacrificed their all 
their comfortable farms and every thing they had accu- 
mulated for a principle, that of loyalty to the British 


Crown. There are other colonies in the British Empire 
whose first settlers were convicts, viz., Botany Bay and 
Van Dieman's Land ; but such was not the case with our 
country. It was settled by men of high principle by 
men of education. There are men, little removed from 
the beast that perishes who have no principle, who are 
satisfied to live under any government so long as their 
bodily wants are satisfied. Such were not the early 
settlers of Upper Canada such were not the men who 
settled in the Niagara district the Butlers, the Balls, 
the Swayzes, the Scroopes, the Whitmores, the Woodruffs, 
the Stalls, the Lampmans, the Bykerts, the Merritts, the 
Dureetes, the Gregories, the Nelleses, the Petti ts, the 
lamely s, the Kerbys, the Warrens, the Macklems, the Ryk- 
mans, the Ryersons, and the thousands of U. E. Loyalists. 
He felt that many now enjoying the glorious privileges 
of British subjects in Ontario, did not realize what they 
owe to these men and women, who landed on these 
shores a hundred years ago. Many of them here had 
heard but little of what the first settlers had sacrificed 
out of principle, what they had endured in coming here, 
to prepare the Province for their occupation, and there- 
fore they do not appreciate this noble band of men as 
they deserve. Man}' of the settlers, who had fought 
valiantly in the revolutionary war as young men, fought 
again as men well advanced in years under Generals 
Brock and Riall and under Colonels Harvey and Bishopp, 
and other noble soldiers, who led them to victory, when 
this peaceful Province was invaded in 1812 by a body of 
men who thought that they had only to show themselves 
on our shores to pluck this glorious Colony from the 
British Crown. But they were mistaken they found 
that those who had endured hardships in the revolution- 
ary war, were ready to endure the same in defence of 
their wives and children and their new homes in the wil- 
derness. After doing their best to conquer Canada, the 
invaders were glad, in 1815, to sue for an inglorious 


peace, without having secured an acre of our soil ! The 
Bishop said, that he was thankful to have been spared 
by a gracious God to have seen that day. He was. an 
old man had thankfully watched the growth of this 
country for nearly seventy years. He said that he was 
" an old man," but Canadians often lived to be very old 
men. He had then living an uncle, who had entered on 
his 97th year on the 13th January last. He was, at last 
accounts, in the enjoyment of good bodily health, a full 
General of the Royal Artillery, and the oldest officer in 
the British army, and, like the speaker, he was a native 
Canadian. In conclusion, the Bishop remarked, that 
he hoped that his fellow-countrymen, with such glori- 
ous examples before them, would emulate the virtues 
of their fathers, improve the laws of the land, love God 
and honour the Queen. 


The chairman then called upon the Hon. J. B. Plumb, 
Senator of the Dominion, who was received with applause. 

MR. PLUMB said that as a resident of the Town of Niag- 
ara and a member of the Reception Committee, he desired 
to unite with the chairman in extending a cordial and 
hearty welcome to all who were here on this memorable 
occasion. He was deeply gratified to find so large an 
assemblage, and to know that a great proportion of those 
who composed it were descendants of the early settlers of 
the country, and that they were here to do honour to the 
memory of their loyal and brave forefathers. The chair- 
man himself was a representative descendant of a worthy 
U. E. Loyalist family, an inheritor of the lands granted 
by the Crown to his ancestors, who cleared them from the 
primeval forest, lands which are now teeming with the 
products of the field, of the orchard, and of the vineyard 
under the practical and successful cultivation which has 
made the name of their present owner widely and favor- 
ably known as an agriculturist and fruit-grower. 


He (Mr. Plumb) could not claim to be here by virtue of 
such a descent. It was well known that his earlier life 
had been passed in the neighbouring Republic of which 
he was a native, but his forefathers had held positions of 
trust and honour under the Crown prior to the Revolution 
both in civil and military life, and when, upon mature 
reflection, he decided to take the oath of allegiance, he 
resolved to the best of his ability to do his duty as a loyal 

Conspicuous among those who were with us to-day are 
deputations of chiefs of the Iroquois, who come from their 
reservations on the Grand River and the Bay of Quinte* 
to join in this celebration. They were entitled to special 
greeting and honour. The alliance of the Six Nations 
strengthened the British power in its struggle with the 
French for the mastery of this continent and largely con- 
tributed to its triumph. 

When the Revolution began, they refused to break the 
covenant chain and at the hazard of their homes and 
their hunting grounds in the State of New York, at the 
risk of the destruction of their ancient league of the 
Long House, they joined the forces of the King, led by 
Brant, whose grandson, chief of the Mohawks of the Bay 
of Quinte", is with us to-day. They served the Royal 
cause with unswerving fidelity and indomitable courage 
until the war was ended, and by its fortunes their great 
possessions were lost to them forever. The treaty of 1784 
left them homeless and unprotected exiles, " To dig unable 
and to beg ashamed," but the British Government soon 
made them amends by large grants of territory on the 
Bay of Quinte* and on the Grand River. While the 
sons may look back with regret to the days when 
their fathers held supremacy over the greater part of 
the continent, east of the Mississippi and north of the 
Gulf States, they may compare their position with that 
of such of their brethren as stood neutral or took part 
with the colonists and depended on their promises. They 


were driven before the white settlers, the Oneidas and the 
Cayugas were utterly dispossessed, and the Onondagas, 
Senecas and Tuscaroras were confined within the narrow 
limits of reservations that have been sacrificed piece-meal 
to the greed of land-jobbers till scarcely a foothold re- 

Three dim-eyed feeble old warriors who are now upon 
this platform, one of them a chief of high rank, have 
passed four score and ten, and were perhaps among the 
firstborn of those who took possession of their new home 
on the Grand River. The eldest of the three, Chief John- 
son, whose Indian name is Sakayondagwaraton, or the 
" Dissolving Mist,' : is ninety three years of age. He held 
the important office of Speaker of the Council and his 
familiarity with the mnemonic language of the wampum 
records, by which all the transactions of the League are 
preserved, enabled him last year to perform a prodigious 
feat of memory in reading the belts several hours each 
day tor three days in succession. 

Mr. Horatio Hale, whose " Book of Rites" is a late and 
important contribution to Indian history says of him 
" His eloquence was noted even among a race of orators, 
I can well believe what I have heard of its effect, as, 
even in his old age, when an occasion has for a moment 
aroused his spirit, I have not known whether most to 
admire the nobleness and force of his sentiments and 
reasoning, or the grace and flowing ease, with which he 
delivered the stately periods of his sonorous language." 
All these veterans served with distinction and bravery 
in the war of Ibl2, and their spirit survives in the young 
men of the League, many of whom form companies in the 
volunteer battalions of Haldimand and Brant, and are 
praiseworthy for soldierly appearance, discipline and drill. 

Our Iroquois are to be greatly commended for improve- 
ment in agriculture, for peaceful conduct, for absence of 
crime, and for the progress of education and growth of 
Christianity among them. They are the remnant of the 


noblest type of the red races in North America. It is 
not easy to conceive the sacrifice of liberty which their 
present mode of life involves. They have conformed to 
it in a manner that justifies the highest expectations of 
their future achievements in civilized life, and in the cul- 
tivation of the arts of peace. The British Government 
has always kept faith with the Redmen. To the Iroquois 
they were bound by obligations that would never be 

It may be asked why we are met here ? Why, after 
the lapse of a century every loyal man's heart beats with 
the same feeling that animated their ancestors who aban- 
doned their homesteads and all their earthly possessions 
and made a painful and perilous journey through the 
wilderness in order to remain under the old flag ? The 
brave loyalist brought with him his honest convictions 
and his love of constitutional liberty, and his children and 
his children's children, by their presence here to-day, tes- 
tify to the endurance and strength of the principles they 
have inherited, and to their desire to bequeath them un- 
impaired to those who are to come after them. 

An essential difference exists between the political in- 
stincts of the people of Canada and those who reside 
across the borders. Our neighbours have largely extended 
the bounds of constitutional liberty, but he (Mr. Plumb) 
believed that in the end adhesion to the Crown had 
secured for this Dominion a still larger constitutional 
freedom than that of the United States in our parliamen- 
tary government and direct ministerial responsibility, 
which involved the immediate appeal to the people, at 
any moment when the Ministers of the Crown failed to 
be supported by a majority of the representatives of the 
people in the House of Commons. Many thoughtful 
citizens of the Republic clearly saw the advantages of our 
system, but it could not be adopted there without radical 
changes, which seem impossible. He hoped that, by God's 
grace, Canadians might preserve it unchanged, and that 


it would be sacredly cherished by future generations. He 
believed that it was in the best interests of themselves, 
and of the world at large that each of the two great 
peoples who inhabited North America should be per- 
mitted to evolve their own separate and several methods 
without let or hindrance. While Canadians did not 
intend to be grasping or meddlesome or aggressive, they 
would never be cringing, or servile or submissive. They 
intended to maintain their position here, and to defend 
British institutions on this continent in a manly, straight- 
forward manner. They had the courage of their convic- 
tions, and would work out their salvation in their own 
way, and they desired that their great brotherhood of 
friends on the other side of the frontier should take the 
same course, and enjoy the same privilege. 

He did not believe in Canadian independence. It was 
certain to result in annexation, and in neither independ- 
ence or annexation could he see anything but disaster. 
We desired to cultivate the most cordial relations with 
our neighbours, to buy of them, to sell to them, to inter- 
marry with them he was an example of that, but they 
wanted to show that they proceeded on parallel lines, 
which could not meet and coalesce, however closely they 
might approximate. He scorned those who urged that 
there would be certain advantages in dollars and cents to 
be gained by a change in our political allegiance. He 
believed the sentiment of loyalty in Canadian bosoms 
could not be brought down to a money standard. There 
was no sordid taint in the blood of those who served the 
Crown in two great struggles. They have transmitted 
that blood to a large portion of the best men and women 
of this fair Province. Fealty to the monarch is deeply 
implanted in Canadian hearts, it cannot be weighed, 
measured or appraised, it is strengthened by a personal 
love for the Queen, and its foundations are respect for 
law and order, and its forms are an enduring basis on 


which our cherished institutions securely rest, and he be- 
lieved it to be ineradicable. 

It was not a principle which was incommensurate with 
progress and development as its opponents have asserted, 
and it seemed to harmonize especially with colonization, 
as might be seen in the vast extent through both hemi- 
spheres of a Greater Britain of powerful and prosperous 
colonies, acknowledging a willing and not a compulsory 
allegiance to the Throne, adhering to British traditions, 
and governed by British laws. It is less than three 
hundred years since the first permanent settlement of 
white men was made upon this continent. Sir Walter 
Raleigh, and his half-brother, Sir Humphrey Gilbert, 
under favour of Queen Elizabeth, fitted out an expedi- 
tion for America in 1583, which failed disastrously, and 
Gilbert lost his life by shipwreck on the return voyage. 
Another expedition of Raleigh's landed at Roanoke, in 
Virginia, at the end of August, 1584;, and had friendly 
intercourse with the natives. The next year a fleet of 
seven vessels under command of Raleigh's kinsman, the 
celebrated Sir Richard Grenville, immortalized in Ten- 
nyson's ballad of " The Revenge," settled a small body 
of colonists at Roanoke. After extreme hardship and 
suffering, they were taken back to England by Sir Francis 
Drake in 1586. The same year, fifty settlers were landed 
by Sir Richard Grenville, and a hundred and fifteen were 
sent out under Governor White in 1587, all of whom had 
perished or disappeared when White returned with sup- 
plies and recruits in 1590. At the death of Queen Eliza- 
beth, there probably was not an Englishman on this con- 
tinent. The colony of Jamestown was established three 
years afterwards in 1606, and the following year Cham- 
plain landed on the site of Quebec. 

"From small beginnings we date our winnings." 

We are celebrating to-day the Centennial Anniversary 
of the first settlement of the U. E. Loyalists in this Pro- 


vince. There were then, including those hardy pioneers, 
certainly not more than 20,000 white people within its 
borders, and in 1790 not more than 25,000, and yet, in 
1791, the British Parliament passed the Act separating 
the Provinces of Upper and Lower Canada, by virtue of 
which Act Governor Simcoe, in the summer of 1792, or- 
dered an election for the first Parliament of this Province, 
which met in September of that year, at a point nsar 
that on which we are standing, and almost within the 
sound of the voices of the speakers on this platform. In 
the eloquent address with which he opened the Session, 
he said that in consideration of the sacrifices the Loyalists 
of the Province had made for the Crown, and the evi- 
dence they had given of their capacity for self-govern- 
ment, the largest measure of liberty ever granted by the 
British Parliament to a colony had been given to Upper 
Canada. He said that the confidence reposed in the 
colonists had been well earned, and that he was sure that 
they would never betray the sacred trust. 

Among the first acts of the Upper Canadian Parliament 
was the adoption of the laws of England and the abolition 
of Slavery. We have been told (said Mr. Plumb) that we 
are lagging behind our Republican neighbours in the race 
of development and improvement; but he thought we 
had reason 'to be proud of our advancement. He had said 
that in 1790 the population of Upper Canada did not 
exceed by the highest estimate 25,000. It was probably 
far short of that number. That of the State of New York 
was then 340,120. If the growth of this Province had 
been on the same ratio of that of the Empire State, which 
has the greatest sea-port on the continent, we should 
have had in 1881 a population of but 375,000. The State 
of New York in 1880 had a population of 5,082,871, or 
an increase of fifteen fold. This Province had a popula- 
tion in 1881 of 1,923, -28, an increase of sixty-four fold. 

It was a mistake to suppose that the political organi- 
zation, under which we have attained this wonderful re- 


suit, could be compared unfavourably with any which 
exists. We had a system under which the people, through 
their representatives, could at any moment compel the 
Ministry to change their course, to dissolve Parliament, 
or to resign their offices. The purse-strings being held 
by a responsible Government, if there was any misman- 
agement, the elected representative of the people could 
immediately interfere. All the Cabinet Ministers sat in 
Parliament, and those in the Commons, after their ap- 
pointment to office, must go back to the people for re- 
election and confirmation. The Executive was not a four 
years tyranny, with a Cabinet that could not be reached 
except by impeachment. It was a rule that could be 
changed when it could no longer hold the public confi- 
dence, as was exemplified by the dissolution in the autumn 
of 1873 of the Parliament elected in 1872, it having been 
claimed by the majority that the Ministry no longer re- 
presented public sentiment. The public expenditure is 
controlled by the Commons. Every item can be fully 
examined and discussed in Committee of Supply. The 
estimates for the expenditure are before the Commons in 
detail from the beginning of the Session, and separate 
votes are taken on each item. We know nothing of a 
log-rolling, omnibus supply bill, forced through on the last 
night of the session when clamour and intimidation burk 
discussion. Not only has every item to be voted on in 
committee, but the vote must be afterwards affirmed by the 
concurrence of the majority, with the Speaker in the 

There was, he said, no prescriptive or exclusive spirit 
here. Every man was welcome among us no matter of 
what nationality. There was room for all. The natur- 
alization laws were liberal, the franchise was governed by 
a trifling property qualification, the main object of which 
was, through scrutinized registration, to prevent fraud. 
There was no Elective Judiciary dependent upon popular 
suffrage. The supremacy of Parliament could only be 
appealed from to the Throne itself. 


It was a matter of pride to him to say that he was an 
exemplification of the liberality with which the Canadian 
people treated those of foreign birth who became subser- 
vient to the laws. He had been honoured by the people 
far beyond his deserts in this old borough of Niagara, 
and now he held from the Queen, one of the highest com- 
missions that could be held by any subject in Canada a 
seat for life in the Senate. He had endeavoured faith- 
fully since he entered public life to promote the welfare 
of his adopted country, and he believed that he would 
never be found recreant to the trust placed upon him. It 
might be that there were people in Canada who were en- 
deavouring to sow seeds of dissension between the loyal 
people and the throne. He said of such, that they could 
not do it, that while he was willing to discuss most mat- 
ters with them, that that question was not one which 
could be entertained, because the hearts of the people 
were so securely fixed in their allegiance that they did 
not want any argument on the subject. He trusted that 
every manand woman before him would never forget that 
it was their bounden duty to transmit with religious 
care the noble principles which they inherited from their 
parents, and to let their children know that there was no 
uncertain sound in Canada in respect to adhesion to the 
British Crown. He would conclude by quoting Tenny- 
son's words, which he trusted would sink deep into their 
hearts : 

Oh, save the one true seed of freedom sown 
Betwixt a people and their ancient throne, 
That sober freedom out of which there springs 
Our loyal passion for our temperate Kings ; 
For, saving that, ye help to save mankind, 
Till public wrong be crumbled into dust, 
And drill the raw world for the march of mind, 
Till crowds at length be sane and crowns be just. 


The arrival of the U. E. Loyalists in this Province one 
hundred years ago, was an event which has had a lasting 
effect upon the history of this country, and was, to a 


great extent, the cause of our being to-day a portion of 
the greatest Empire in the world. I need not say here on 
this historic ground, teeming with recollections of hard 
fought fights, or to the descendants of those who pre- 
served our liberties in 1812, that to the U. E. Loyalists 
we owe the fact that we enjoy to-day the true liberty 
that is to be found under a limited monarchy. Those 
early settlers who came here one hundred years ago 
were the very best of the old colonists. They were the 
law-abiding, God-fearing classes, and this was remarkably 
shown by the fact that in the early years of this coun- 
try crime was almost unkown, the settlers being an 
orderly, peaceable, \vell-behaved people. They gave a 
start to this country, the benefits of which we are con- 
tinually feeling year after year. Ever since the pro- 
vince was established, the fringe of settlement, as it 
moved slowly into the forest has been almost free from 
crime, this, strange to say, has continued to this day, and 
is a remarkable feature of the settlement of the North- 

How different it has been in the Republic to the south 
of us lawlessness and crimes of violence have been ram- 
pant for one hundred years back, and life is now more 
unsafe in the United States than in .any civilized or 
semi-civilized country in the world. It is not the cli- 
mate that has done this, for in many sections it is very 
similar to our own. It is not the physical character of 
the country, for that also is alike. I attribute it entirely 
to the form of government. 

The Republican form of government attracts all those 
who love license rather than liberty ; while those who 
desire to see liberty given only to do what is right, are 
much more likely to seek a monarchical form of govern- 
ment. From this reason, while the American Republic 
has, as one of their own prominent men has well said, 
been for one hundred years the " cess-pool " of Europe, 
and has attracted the worst classes from the old world, 


thanks to our form of government, we have had the best 
and choicest settlers come to us. I do not pretend to say 
that immense numbers of estimable men have not gone 
to the States, but I will saythat we have been singularly 
and fortunately free from getting the bad classes which 
have had such an evil influence upon the neighbouring 
country. One of their own writers in the Nortk Ameri- 
can Review, for this month, one of their own Magazines, 
laments the want of public honesty in the people and 
rulers of the United States, and entitles his article " Are 
We a Nation of Rascals ? " It is painful to read the 
article, and to feel that any English speaking people could 
have so bad a record. Even in the treatment of the In- 
dians, the contrast between us and our neighbours is as 
remarkably striking, and the reason is, that there is some 
honour with us in our treatment of them, while across the 
border they have been treated by the agents most un- 
fairly, and by all classes most cruelly. 

From British Columbia to Cape Breton we, Canadians, 
can proudly point to one of the largest and finest countries 
in the world, with as well-behaved and law-abiding a 
population as can be found anywhere, while south of us, 
the lawlessness is wide-spread, and the crimes of violence 
almost without number. Can any one say that the arrival 
of the U. E. Loyalists here in 1784 did not start this Pro- 
vince well, and that their maintenance of our freedom in 
1812 did not preserve a system of government which is 
a great boon and blessing to us to-day. 

Sometimes it is said by strangers and aliens amongst 
us, that we, Canadians, have no national sentiment, that if 
we were independent we would have more of it, and it is 
the fashion to speak loudly of the national spirit of the 
citizens of the United States. I take issue on this point, 
and on behalf of our people, I say that the pride of 
the native Canadian in his country is quite equal to the 
pride of the Yankee in his, while the willingness to de- 
fend it in case of need is far greater in the Canadian. 


The strongest national sentiment that has yet been ex- 
hibited in the States was shown by the Southern people 
h^ their gallant struggle to destroy the Union. The 
national spirit shown by the Northerners where the boun- 
ties rose to about $1800 a man, where patriotism con- 
sisted in hiring a man to go and fight while the citizen 
took a contract to supply the soldiers, as has been well 
said by their celebrated divine Dr. Talmage, " With rice 
that was worm eaten, with biscuits that were mouldy, 
with garments that were shoddy, with meat that was rank, 
with horses that stumbled in the charge, and with tents 
that sifted the rain into the faces of the exhausted." 
The patriotism shown by 3,000 Yankee Militia almost in 
sight of this spot, in 1812, when they refused to cross at 
Queenston, to aid their comrades, whom our volunteers 
shortly afterwards cut to pieces under their eyes, was 
very different from the patriotism of the Canadians who 
crossed the river and captured Detroit, or those who 
fought at Chrysler's farm, or those who drove back Hamp- 
ton at Chateauguay. 

In 1812 every ablebodied man went to the frontier to 
fight leaving the old men, the boys and the women to till 
the fields. One might travel a day's journey in this Pro- 
vince during that war without meeting an ablebodied 
man, as they were all on the frontier. That kind of 
national sentiment was very different from that of the 
bountied mercenaries of the Northern armies, or of the 
three months' men, who left the army of the Potomac in 
1861 on the eve of a great battle. What a striking con- 
trast also was this latter incident to the calling out of 
10,000 Canadian Militia at the time of the Fenian trou- 
bles of 1866. Only sufficient regiments were ordered 
out to make with their full strength 10,000. In less 
than eighteen hours after the order was issued the regi- 
ments were all at their posts, and the returns showed 
over 14,000 on parade. The extra 4,000 consisted of vol- 
unteers who had served their term and been discharged, 


but who, on the call of danger put on their old uniforms, 
rallied around the standards, and fell into the ranks 
without bounty of any kind, or other obligation save the 
national sentiment which is the characteristic of our 

In the Oregon difficulty, in the Trent affair the feel- 
ing was admirable. Can we call to mind the conduct 
of the Nova Scotia Legislature at the time of the Maine 
boundary difficulty, when the members standing in their 
places, unanimously passed with three cheers for the 
Queen, a vote placing at the disposal of the Government 
every dollar of their revenue, and every ablebodied man 
in their province to be used in defence of their sister 
province of New Brunswick that was threatened with 
attack can we call to mind the Canadians who came 
back to Canada from every state in the Union to aid in 
defending her from the Fenians, without feeling that we 
have in our people a strong national sentiment ? 

Canada has never had to call upon her sons to defend 
her, that they have not cheerfully responded to the call, 
and there is no doubt that we Canadians have a national 
sentiment. We have a pride in our country and a confi- 
dence in it and in its future. Wanderers and Bohemians, 
strangers and tramps may, because we are not traitors to 
our government and our country, say that we have no 
national sentiment ; they may not see, or feel or appreciate 
the patriotic feeling of the Canadians ; but we Canadians 
know that it is there. The militia force is one proof of it, 
a finger post to point out to all that we intend to be a free 
people on this continent, and that our liberties can only 
be taken from us after a desperate struggle. This loyalty 
of Canadians to Canada makes them loyal to the Queen, 
because she is the embodiment of the principles of the 
government of our country, not because she is the Queen 
of England, but because she is the Queen of Canada, and 
they are loyal to our monarchical institutions, because 
they feel that true patriotism to Canada lies in that direc- 


We absolutely govern ourselves, the tie which binds us 
to England is one in which all the advantages are on 
our side. There is nothing in it that presses on any of 
our people, and there is no matter of detail in our system 
that we have not the power of regulating for ourselves. 
Unfortunately, however, there are a few who are not sat- 
isfied, and who agitate for change for the sake of agitat- 
ing. This is, and always has been, a difficulty with every 
form of government in all ages. No form of government 
could possibly be devised in which there would be no 
malcontents, no conspirators, no agitators. The grandest 
poem in our language describes a rebellion against Heaven 
itself, and in all countries, and in all governments, there 
have been agitators of the same type. Rome, a republic 
with the highest national sentiment, had in it the elements 
of discord in the broken down classes, who rallied around 
Cataline and formed the famous conspiracy which bears his 
name; and to-day in most countries the same type of agi- 
tators and malcontents abandon useful labour to conspire 
against lawful authority. In Russia they have the Nihil- 
ists, in Germany the Socialists, in France the Communists, 
in Ireland the Fenians, in England the Dynamiters, in 
the United States they have all these classes mixed up 
together, and in addition they have their politicians, while 
in Canada we have only a few Independence writers, the 
weakest and most harmless of all these troublesome classes. 

These wanderers and Bohemians, with the charming 
impudence of the three tailors of Tooley Street, speak of 
themselves as the people of Canada. It is the fashion of 
men of their type always to talk loudly of the people, as 
if they were the people. But who are the people ? The 
people of this country are the farmers who own the soil, 
who have cleared the fields, who till them, and who pro- 
duce the food that feeds us. The people of Canada are 
the workers who work in her factories, who carry on her 
trade, who sail her ships, and spread her commerce, the 
artizans who build her cities and work in them. These 


are the people of Canada, not the few agitators who 
serve no good purpose, and whose absence would be a 
relief, if they went back to the neighbouring Republic, 
from which many of them have drifted in to us. 

The real Canadians are a unit against change in our Con- 
stitution. The farmers do not want it the Militia, re- 
presenting all shades of political and religious feeling, are 
sworn to be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Ma- 
jesty, and they will stand by the Constitution to the last. 
The Roman Catholic church is loyal to the core, for it 
knows that under our government we have absolute re- 
ligious freedom. The Orange order owes its existence to 
a desire to maintain the British Constitution. The Eng- 
lish, Irish, and Scotch, who have come here to settle, have 
come here in preference to the States, because they de- 
sired to remain under the old flag, and under the system 
of government of their fathers. They are true as steel to 
the Constitution, and are U. E. Loyalists at heart. 
Both political parties are loyal. There is no class that is 
not loyal. The vast majority of the newspaper press are 
loyal to Canada and its institutions, and have no sym- 
pathy with the black sheep that hang on the skirts of 
their profession, any more than the Medical profession 
have for the empirics and quacks that cling to them, or 
the lawyers for the pettifoggers who bring discredit upon 

If we were independent to-morrow we would be more 
dependent upon the United States than we are to-day 
upon England. Annexation would only be avoided, if at 
all, by a tremendous struggle and enormous sacrifices, and 
if annexed, where would our independence be ? Gone 
for ever ! and we would be governed by the wire-pullers 
of the factions at Washington,our manufactures sacrificed 
to the interests of New England, and our own affairs ad- 
ministered by carpet-baggers. The paltry few who argue 
independence cannot foresee what the result would be, or 
if they do, having no stake in the country, they do not 


care. They might ruin us politically and morally and 
commercially, and then wander off to some other coun- 
try, and be as well off as they ever were or ever will be. 

Why should we dismember the Empire ? When the 
German people have united to make a great State : when 
the Italians have been consolidated into a powerful king- 
dom, are the British to divide and weaken ? Are the 
Anglo Saxons to be .the only race to do this ? and are we 
Canadians, without reason or motive, to be the cause ? I 
don't call the United States an Anglo-Saxon community 
now. Once it was, but since the revolution it has been the 
dumpingground of Europe,and they are forming a commu- 
nity there entirely different in its characteristics from ours. 

I have watched the writings of these independence 
men, and have at last discovered what their real griev- 
ance is, and it is that there are certain people who hold 
public offices. They do not object to there being public 
offices, but the real trouble is that they do not hold 
these offices themselves. Envy and jealousy is at the 
bottom of ail their patriotism. They advocate elective 
offices. They forget that the people indirectly make the 
appointments, for they elect representatives who hold 
office at their will, and who are responsible to them for 
all they do. They agitate for the election to nearly all 
public offices by the popular vote as in the States, where 
the system has produced an office-holding class, where 
strict integrity is the exception, and where peculation is 
the rule. These agitators and Bohemians wish to become 
themselves an office-holding class of this Yankee type. 
They think that by agitating for a change, by creating 
anarchy and confusion, they might temporarily come to 
the top. They know that when the pot is boiling the 
dregs are forced upwards, but they forget that when the 
pot stops boiling the dregs go to the bottom. But there is 
no reason why we should be governed by strangers or 
tramps, and the people of this country, who have made 
it what it is, intend to govern it their own way. 


The worst feature of this agitation is, that a revolution 
such as these malcontents ask for, can only be brought 
about by bloodshed. I cannot call to mind an instance of 
a revolution being carried out without bloodshed. Iri fact 
no system of government recognizes any constitutional 
method of destroying its fundamental principles. The 
United States could not establish a despotism under their 
constitution except by a revolution. The Southern 
States seceded, not constitutionally, but by conventions of 
the people in the same way in which their constitution 
was originally formed, and it was an attempted revolu- 
tion, and was put down by force of arms. Every attempt 
from without, or within, in the past to change our system 
of government has been put down by bloodshed. In fact, 
the fundamental principle of our government, the Mon- 
archy, cannot be changed constitutionally. The members 
of Parliament before they can vote, must swear to be 
faithful to the constitution, and would be foresworn per- 
jurers if they afterward betrayed their country. For 
this reason I appealed on a former occasion to the good 
feeling and honesty of the independence agitators, as to 
whether it was fair or right in them to agitate for a 
change of government, that can only be brought about 
by war. And I ask you here again to-day, if it is fair 
or right for these Bohemians to try to create trouble 
among a peaceful, happy and contented people, who have 
no grievances that they cannot easily remedy them- 
selves, when they can so readily find in the neigh- 
bouring country the republican institutions they admire ? 
When I say this I say it in a kindly spirit for I would 
be the last to prevent them writing and talking and 
advocating their views so long as they do not break out 
into open treason. Thank God this is a free country, 
where people can hold what opinions they like and express 
them freely, so they may go on if they wish and write 
their little editorials, and air their little theories, and abuse 
all who disagree with them, it pleases them and hurts no 


one, and the very freedom that enables them to do this 
is what makes our institutions so stable and these men 
so powerless for evil. 

It would not be worth while to notice this movement 
at all, were it not that we are celebrating the centennial 
of the settlement of this country, on principles diametri- 
cally opposed to those advocated now by these few, and 
under \vhich we have nourished, and increased, and en- 
joyed so many advantages for one hundred years. I hope 
that at the next centennial our descendants may have as 
many causes of congratulation, and as many blessings for 
which to be thankful as we have, and that the agitators 
of their day may be as weak and uninfluential, and as. 
powerless as ours are to-day. If so about once every 
one hundred years will be often enough for our side of 
the case to be laid down. 

WILLIAM KIRBY ESQ., of Niagara, said " Mr. Chairman, 
Ladies and Gentlemen. Upon an occasion like this the 
heart as well as the intellect is stirred up with deep emo- 
tions. All that is noble, all that is patriotic in us, the pride 
we have in the loyal and indomitable men who founded 
Upper Canada, affurd a theme that ought to warm the 
coldest and make the dullest man eloquent in their praise. 
The United Empire Loyalists of America only need the 
truth to be told of them, to make them stand out promi- 
nently upon the page of history as ranking with the 
noblest of our race in any land. 

I am glad and proud of the fact that celebrations similar 
to this have already been held in Toronto and the Bay of 
Quinte*, yet we of the Niagara district did not think 
that those were enough. This spot consecrated by so 
many honourable memories of the fathers and defenders 
of our country, is after all the true historical and proper 
place for the centennial celebration of the settlement of 
Upper Canada. Here was the principal landing place of 
the expatriated loyalists, here came the loyal fighting 
men of the Revolutionary War, and here they planted 


their war torn but glorious flag ancl said to the waves of 
revolution : " Come not here ! this is our Canadian home, 
and our portion of the British Empire for ever ! " 

When I look upon the multitude of faces before me, 
and around me, and recognize, as I do, so many of them as 
belonging to both of the great political parties which 
contend for the administration of our goverment ; when 
I see these usually bitter partizans of both sides of politics, 
laying aside, upon an occasion like this, their party strife 
and uniting as brothers and true Canadians, to show 
their common pride in the unity of the Empire, and 
to pay honour to the memories of the U. E. Loyalists, 
who have left us this great country as our common heri- 
tage when I see this, I rejoice to know that above all 
our party noise and confusion, there exists a great firma- 
ment where peace reigns, where a common sentiment of 
Canadian loyalty and patriotism brings us all into accord, 
and shows that Canadians of all creeds and parties can 
unite to defend our country in danger ; and maintain, as 
our forefathers did, the unity of the Empire to which we 

This meeting is a proof that, after the lapse of a hun- 
dred years, the spirit which animated the U. E. Loyalists 
is still alive, slumbering perhaps, in quiet leonine strength 
in the hearts of our people, but ready to wake up as of 
old, whenever called upon. Superficial onlookers and 
frivolous scribes may say, that the old spirit is no longer 
a living principle in us. I say that they who make that 
assertion know nothing of the U. E. Loyalist stock of this 
country, and this great loyal meeting is a striking dis- 
proof of the base charge. 

Who, it may be asked, were those U. E. Loyalists whom 
we praise so highly, and whose memory we are celebrat- 
ing to-day ? 

I reply, they were that vast number of loyal, law-abid- 
ing men, who in the American revolution, formed fully 
one half of the people of the thirteen colonies, when 


mainly through the machinations and aid of France, 
those colonies were led into the great rebellion against 
the Empire. 

They were, if I may use the AMERICAN language, 
which we all understand very well, the party of Union 
in 1776, as opposed to the party of Secession of that 
time. They were the men who were loyal to the crown, 
and to the political unity of the English speaking race. 
They owed a national allegiance as born British subjects 
to the Crown and Empire, and felt bound by every tie 
of duty, honour and religion, to resist rebellion, and 
preserve intact the unity of the Empire to which they 
belonged. The crime of dividing the English race was 
none of theirs ! 

The great civil war which broke out in the United 
States twenty-three years ago, has to the American mind 
greatly modified the meaning of the word loyalty. 
Instead of being used in a bad and vituperative sense as 
it had been prior to their own late rebellion, loyalty has 
since then been discovered to be one of the cardinal vir- 
tues,* while rebellion that was previously looked upon as 
an honourable thing in itself, has come to be denounced 
as the blackest of crimes ! especially against themselves. 

I will read an extract from the letter of a distinguished 
American General with reference to this loyal celebra- 
tion of ours. He saj^s : 

" I wish I could be there to unite with you in sym- 
pathy and feeling, as I do here. Success to the loyal 
blood ! May its memories be ever green, and the recollec- 
tion of its unparalleled and unrewarded devotion, bravery 
and sacrifice endure and wax stronger Avith time ! We 
loyalists lost the game, but we did not in the slightest de- 
gree tarnish our record of honour." 

I may mention that the general who writes this, is 
himself a descendant of a distinguished Loyalist family 
.of the old Province of New York, 

The declaration of Independence, which passed by a 
majority of one only, came like a thunder clap upon the 


people of the colonies. Up to that day, the most une- 
quivocal public expressions of loyalty to the King and 
Empire had been made, and reiterated by the general 
Congress as by all the provincial congresses in the colo- 
nies. M ay, long after fighting began nothing but a re- 
dress of grievances was professed to be demanded. The 
army which besieged Boston, under Washington, and that 
which invaded Canada, under Arnold and Montgomery, 
fought under British colours. It was known that outside 
of Sew England a majority of the people were opposed to 
secession, and that it was necessary to lead them by de- 
grees, and blindfold, as it were, into the pit of revolution 
and so it was done. 

It is unnecessary for me to discuss, in your presence, 
the political issues of the revolution. We are all of one 
mind on that subject. We know that the loyalists were 
right in the course they pursued, and that for us is 

The revolution was not necessary for the redress of 
such theoretical grievances as formed the subject of dif- 
ferences with the mother country. The Stamp Act, the 
greatest offence of all, was never put in force, and was 
promptly repealed in compliance with the general remon- 
strance against it. The other minor Acts of no account in 
themselves, might likewise have been left to be repealed, 
and the old harmony restored, had not pride and temper 
on both sides, taken the place of reason and moderation 
and rendered a good understanding impossible. 

The loyalists of America felt all this, and refused to be 
hurried into the crime of rebellion ; and when the Dec- 
laration of Independence was launched upon the country 
they denied the truth of the indictments it contained 
against the King and the people of Great Britain while 
the very offensive language in which it was couched, 
added fuel to their resentment, and perpetuates the bit- 
terness of it to this day. 


Their opposition to the revolution was met by the en- 
actment of the most vindictive penal laws against men, 
whose only offence was a determination to keep their al- 
legiance, and abide by the flag under which they were 
born. The persons of the loyalists were seized and im- 
prisoned their property and in property they were the 
wealthiest men in the community was everywhere con- 
fiscated persecutions begat fierce retaliations. Swords 
were drawn, and the civil war began which devastated 
America for eight years and only ended when the 
powers of France, Spain and Holland intervened, and by 
their help the thirteen colonies were severed from the 

An able and candid American author has written : 
" The loyalists had position and property, the Indians had 
fertile lands ; both were coveted, and both were wrenched 
from their rightful possessors." 

The atrocious penal laws, the proscriptions, the confis- 
cations, and the personal outrages to which aged and re- 
spectable loyalists were subjected, even in the presence 
and with the sanction of some of the highest heads of the 
rebellion, has left a deep stain upon " the course that was 
pursued" in establishing the revolution. They added bit- 
terness and animosity to the struggle, for they called forth 
keen reprisals, and sent into the royal ranks upwards of 
25,000 native Americans ; and it is a fact that, the contin- 
ental army, which was largely made up of the foreign 
element and needy emigrants, had fewer Americans in it 
than the Royal army. But I need not recount the events 
of the war. 

It is estimated that at the close of the war, a hundred 
thousand loyalist Americans left the Port of New York 
alone. The world had not seen such a flight of the best 
elements of the population of any country, since the exile 
of the Huguenots from France over a century before. 
The fugitive loyalists who left their native country were 
dispersed all over the Empire many went to Great Bri- 


tain, many to the West Indies, many to the wilds of 
New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and thousands came 
to Canada. 

Upwards of ten thousand of the best people of New 
York and Pennsylvania found their way through the 
wilderness to the very place where we stand, and amid 
privations, toils and sufferings the story of which is 
not yet forgotten here set up their new homes in the 
forest and courageously and cheerfully started life anew, 
and began that career of honour and felicity which is 
our inheritance in Canada to this day may it last foi* 

As an instance of the privations endured in this coun- 
try, which was at that time wholly uncultivated, I will 
read an original, unpublished letter of the period from 
General Haldimand to Colonel Claus, Indian Superintend- 
ent, at Niagara, in reference to supplies of food needed 
here for the Indians. General Haldimand writes in May, 
1780, " they should consider the trouble, expense and time 
it takes to transport provisions not only to Niagara but 
all the way to Detroit and Michilimacinac. Every ounce 
of provisions, they and we have been living upon for 
these eighteen months past, was brought from England." 

When we reflect upon these words, and consider the 
length of the ocean voyage to Quebec, and the difficulty 
and time it required to transport all those provisions in 
canoes and boats from Quebec to the upper country, all 
the way to Detroit and Michilimacinac, we may form an 
idea of the scarcity and suffering that must have pre- 
vailed in this wild country, at that time, when the sud- 
den influx of so many people took place. 

But Providence had great ends in view, when it settled 
Canada with men of such heroic strain, and of the purest 
blood of America. 

It has been cast as a reproach upon the U. E. Loyalists, 
that they were largely the gentry, and not the populace 
of American society. They formed undoubtedly the best 


and wealthiest class in the old colonies. But all classes 
were present among them, judges, lawyers, legislators, 
clergymen, soldiers, merchants, yeomen and handicraft- 
men all filled the ranks of that great emigration. Chris- 
tian men of all the churches were there, but not one 
infidel of the type of that arch traitor Tom Paine ! He 
belonged emphatically to the Rebellion ! The Loyalists 
came with their Penates and household gods, their bibles, 
the sacred communion vessels of their altars, the tables 
of the ten commandments from the chancels of their 
churches, these sacred objects they brought with them 
out of their abandoned temples. 

It seemed as if the voice of Christ was heard by them, 
as he spake to his disciples upon that last day at Jerusa- 
lem, " Arise ! let us go hence ! " And these ten command- 
ments they set up anew in the rude churches which they 
built to the worship of God in Canada. 

The whole congregation of Trinity Church, .New York, 
with their venerable Rector at their head, transported 
themselves to St. John, New Brunswick, and there set up 
the old Tables of the Commandments, and the royal arms 
that had previously adorned their native church in the 
City of New York. Upon the table beside me, stands one 
of the grand silver communion flagons and plates given 
by Queen Anne to the Mohawk Christians in 1711. They 
were brought here during the revolution, and are still 
used by the loyal Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte*, of 
whom Chief Hill, a great grandson of the renowned 
.Captain Joseph Brant, sits here in your presence to-day, 
the last hereditary chief of that great tribe. 

There is an immense significance in the fact, Mr. Chair- 
man, and it is worthy of our deep study, that the 
U. E. Loyalists, leaving all other possessions behind 
them, brought with them the ten commandments, the 
Bible, and the sacred vessels of the communion, as the 
most precious relics of their old homes in the thirteen 
colonies. What was left to fill the blank of that great re- 


ligious and loyal exodus American history is now daily 
recording, and it is a point I need not dwell upon ; but 
discerning men can see the blank places left by the removal 
of those sacred emblems from that country. 

Here came the great body of the adherents of the 
Church of England, mainly under the lead of that good 
man, the Rev. Dr. John Stewart, who founded the first 
Episcopal churches in Upper Canada. 

Here came also the pious and zealous John Ash bury, 
and that godly woman, Barbara Heck, who, after found- 
ing Methodism in the City of New York, led a band of 
loyal Methodists to the Bay of Quinte*, and there laid the 
foundation of the Methodist church in Canada. The old 
Wesleyans, like their founder, John Wesley, were ever 
loyal to king and country, and, perhaps, because they 
were Methodists, were also U. E. Loyalists, when the day 
of trial came that proved the spirit of men to the utter- 
most, whether they were faithful, or whether they were 
untrue, to the sacred precept of Scripture " Fear God 
and honour the king." 

Here came also a numerous and a gallant band of loyal 
Roman Catholics, led by their priests, the MacDonalds, 
from North Carolina and other Southern States, Scot- 
tish Highlanders, for the most part, who settled our dis- 
trict of Glengarry, and formed the nucleus of that High- 
land community, so distinguished for its loyalty and 
valour in the subsequent history of Upper Canada. 

Here, too, somewhat later, came a great number of the 
peaceful Quakers and Menonists, of Pennsylvania. The 
fidelity of the Quakers to their lawful government, drew 
upon them a cruel persecution from the rebels, who 
stained their record by trying for high treason, and hang- 
ing two of the most respectable Quaker gentlemen of 
Philadelphia, guilty of no offence in the world but loyal 
adherence to their king and country. This persecution 
drove some of the Quakers into the army, and the Quaker 
ancestors of a gentleman present on this platform, were 


among the hardest fighters in our army during the revo- 
lutionary war. 

The Quakers bore with characteristic patience the per- 
secution of their enemies, but they flocked into Canada 
after the peace, to enjoy the protection of English law, and 
live in allegiance to their native sovereign. 

And here, too, came, as I am forcibly reminded by the 
presence before me of the thirty chiefs of the renowned 
Six Nations, the successors of a people once the mightiest 
on this continent. Very different from the Quakers 
in all respects except in their invincible loyalty, were 
the native warlike tribes of Central New York, which 
had been their home and heritage from the earliest times. 
The Six Nations were largely Christianized and civi- 
lized at the outbreak of the revolution. Their villages, 
castles, cornfields, orchards and pastures abounding in 
cattle, formed a long line of settlement from the Hudson 
to the Genessee. 

Congress, which so loudly in public denounced the in r 
terfercnce of the Indians in the war, had at the very in- 
ception of hostilities, sent special commissioners to engage 
them on their side against the king. A great war belt, 
with a red axe worked in the middle of it, was presented 
by the commissioners to the Six Nations , who rejected 
it with contempt, and instead took up arms to support 
the king, and under their great chiefs Brant, and John 
Deseronto, whose descendants are here present to-day, and 
the distingished Seneca Chief Sakoyenwaraton, " Vanish- 
ing Smoke," my friend, Chief Hill, tells me it means, 
fought bravely throughout the war in maintenance of the 
old treaties, solemnly made with the king. 

Their grand and beautiful country was destroyed and 
confiscated. The Six Nations were the first who took up 
the path of exile and settled in Upper Canada where 
they form to-day a thriving, loyal, and happy people, 
proud of the gallant deeds of their fore-fathers, and proud 
of their loyalty and attachment to the Empire. The 


great Union Jack, which they have brought with them 
from the Grand River, has been their rallying flag for 
almost two hundred years. 

Such were the sort of men whose memories we are met 
to celebrate to-day. A nobler ancestry than the IT. E. 
Loyalists of America no country on earth can boast of. 
In war they proved themselves to be of the truest mettle. 
In peace, industrious, law-abiding and honourable and, 
it may be recorded, that while during the course of the 
revolutionary struggle, not a few of the eminent men of, 
the rebellion drew off and returned to their allegiance. 
It cannot be recorded, that a single U. E. Loyalist, either 
for family, for property, or any consideration what- 
ever, went over to the enemy, or returned to them after 
the war. 

The advent of the Pilgrim Fathers at Plymouth, so 
praised in prose and verse, was a holiday excursion com- 
pared with the arrival of the ten thousand expatriated 
Loyalists who landed at Niagara in 1783-4, a few stone 
throws only from where we stand. The Pilgrim Fathers, 
a few in number came to America leisurely, bringing 
with them all their goods and the price of all their pos- 
sessions, at peace and secure under charters, granted by 
their Sovereign. The U. E. Loyalists, unlike them, came 
bleeding with the wounds of seven years of war, stripped 
.of every earthly possession, and exiled from their native 
land. This country was then a savage region of forests 
and swamps. The trees had to be cut down before a seed 
could be dropped in the ground, and in fact for two years 
the brave, suffering exiles had to be fed from the military 
stores of Fort Niagara, before they were in any condition 
to support their devoted wives and children. 

History, written by party prejudice and blind admira- 
tion of mere success as a test of right, has pleased itself 
by maligning the character and principles of the U. E. 
Loyalists. But the course they pursued, after their set- 
tlement in Canada, was honourable to their humanity, 


wisdom and generosity. In less than seven years after 
their arrival in this country they established, with the 
aid and under the direction of that great statesman and 
soldier, Governor Simcoe, a Constitution and Goverment 
for Upper Canada which, they were proud to say, was the 
very image and transcript of that of Great Britain, and 
was the model of our Dominion Constitution of to-day. 

The first Parliament of this Province met in September, 
1792, on the spot now covered by the ruined mounds of 
Fort George, which we see before us ; and there the first 
representatives of the people of Upper Canada, few in 
number, but worthy and capable of sharing in the delib- 
erations of any assembly in the world ; met, and estab- 
lished the old English principles of law, order, and govern- 
ment in this country. 

Contrast their acts with that of the Constitutional 
Congress of the United States, which had established 
their new republican system of government in -that coun- 
try, only four years before ! 

The States which had rebelled in the name of Liberty 
and had declared all men to be free and equal, did, in 
their new constitution, solemnly sanction the institution 
of human slavery, and perpetuate it, seemingly, for ever ! 
While the U. E. Loyalists of Upper Canada, in their first 
parliament, and on this spot, made sacred by that Act of 
eternal justice, did without a dissenting voice, and without 
a claim for compensation, declare slavery to be for ever 
abolished in this Province ! All honour to the true free- 
men and their noble governor Simcoe, who won for Can- 
ada the glory of being the first country in the world 
which abolished slavery by an Act of the Legislature ! 
and they not only set free their slaves, but placed them 
on a civil and political equality with themselves. We 
are not a boastful people, < or we might justly boast of 
having taken the lead of all the world in -that great act 
of justice to humanity. So far was Upper Canada in 
advance of all other people at that time, on this momen- 
tous question. 


This fact strikes us more forcibly, when we recollect, 
that England herself did not abolish slavery in her Colo- 
nies until 1838, while the United States only did so 
twenty years ago, and that at the cost of the most fright- 
ful and destructive civil war on record ; and Spain, ano- 
ther of the liberators of America, has not freed her slaves 
to this day ! 

These acts prove better than any words, the noble and 
generous character of the men who founded this Pro- 
vince. The maintenance of the Imperial connection, of 
the " Unity of the Empire," as we call it in our Canadian 
speech, was the moving principle of duty in the hearts of 
our forefathers. Let it be so in ours also, now and for 

If evil days should ever befall us, and we have no 
right to suppose that, as a people, we shall always be safe 
from the storms of fate, or the malice of enemies, inter- 
nal or external, and you Indians will understand me if I 
say, that', " bad birds are now singing here and there in 
the trees." I say, if times of trouble and adversity should 
ever come upon this fair land, we have the noblest ex- 
ample in the deeds and principles of our forefathers, how 
to meet them. And I have perfect faith in you, brother 
Canadians,- that you, like them, will be found equal to 
every demand upon your honour and loyalty, in a word 
your duty. 

I am proud, Mr. Chairman, to see so many of the U. E. 
Loyalist ladies of our district present, and wearing upon 
their breasts the honoured loyal badges of this Centennial 
celebration. But, the time never was and I believe 
never will be when, be our men loyal and patriotic as 
they will, the women of Ontario will not outshine them 
in ardent love to their Queen and Country ! Among 
them are preserved the honourable traditions of our peo- 
ple, and so long as they teach them to their sons and 
daughters, Canada will stand in honour for ever, as the 
right arm of the British Empire. 


I will conclude, Mr. Chairman by repeating a few 
words spoken by me on another occasion : 

All honour to the Loyalists ! The brave self sacrificing 
exertions of these men in defence of the unity of the 
Empire, brought ruin upon themselves in their old homes, 
but was the making of Canada by settling it with men 
of such chosen virtue. If, as a Puritan divine once 
boasted, " England was winnowed of her choice grain for 
the sowing of America." We can truly say that " America 
was reaped and winnowed afresh at the Eevolution, and 
its very choicest men selected by Providence for the peo- 
pling of this Dominion ! By the loss of these Loyalists 
the United States were drained of their noblest elements, 
and suffered a moral loss, which they have never made 
up for to this day. 

Some of the best and wisest men in the United States 
have brushed aside the covering of prejudice and obloquy 
cast over the memories of the U. E. Loyalists in popular 
American history, and boldly express their admiration for 
the courage and devotion to high principles which actuated 
them. Truth will have its revenge in justice at last ! 
And I venture to say that in another century America will 
be more proud of her exiled Loyalists than of the vaunted 
patriots who banished and despoiled them ! 

CHIEF HILL of the Mohawks, Bay of Quintd, great 
grandson of the late Captain Joseph Brant, said: Mr. 
Chairman, I did not expect to be asked to address an audi- 
ence like this, but since you have honoured me, I must not 
shirk the call. 

We are here to celebrate the centennial of the one hun- 
dredth anniversary of the landing upon Canadian soil of 
our forefathers, whites and Indians. Red and white fought 
side by side in the Revolutionary war. The blood of the 
red man and that of his white brother mixed together to 
uphold the Loyalists' cause. My ancestors and yours, my 
white friends, left all their property to come here, where 
they could hoist the British flag. They sacrificed all to 
hew out of the Canadian bush new homes. 


My great grandfather, the late Captain Joseph Brant, was 
one of Britain's strongest allies a hundred years ago and in 
the late American war the white and red blood was again 
spilled together some of it on the very ground on which 
we stand for the cause of Britain. Now after a hundred 
years of friendship and many changes, we are still broth- 
ers, and I feel happy, as the descendant of one who proved 
himself a loyal man, to meet so many white Loyalists. 

We have been well treated by the British Government, 
and, should occasion demand, Indians throughout Canada 
are ready to do as our forefathers did fight for the dear 
old flag we love so well. 

CHIEF A. G. SMITH said : 

Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, I did not come 
to make a speech, and consequently am not prepared to 
do so. But as I have been so honoured as to be called 
upon to address you, I shall endeavour to do so in a few 
words. I shall commence by saying that I am very 
much pleased to see such a large gathering on this very 
important occasion, and I am also very much gratified in 
being able to tell you that there is a very large represen- 
tation of my people, the Six Nation Indians, of Grand 
River, who are to-day as anxious to be identified with the 
descendants of the U. E. Loyalists of Canada, as their 
forefathers were one hundred years ago. And I am grat- 
ified in being able to stand before you to-day, to speak to 
you on behalf of my people, and to remind you that 
the Six Nation Indians have always been, and are still 
ready and willing to come to your assistance in every un- 
dertaking which is calculated to be for the good or honour 
of our common country. 

It will scarcely be necessary for me to remind you of 
the historical fact that the Six Nations did not hesitate 
to leave their beautiful home in the Valley of the Mo- 
hawk, in the State of New York ; and to sacrifice every- 
thing that was dear to .them, in order to maintain the 
honour of the British flag, by fighting side by side with 


those brave U. E. Loyalists, who counted not their lives 
dear, so that they might win for their posterity a name, 
and the many blessings which we, their descendants, en- 
joy as fruits of the unswerving allegiance of the U. E. 
Loyalists and the Six Nation Indians to the British Crown. 
And, although the time may forever have gone by, when 
the tomahawks of the Six Nations were needed to assist 
in maintaining the honour and dignity of the British 
Crown in this Dominion, yet you can not but admit that 
their assistance and co-operation is still desirable, though 
in another direction, namely, in doing what they can to 
aid the loyal and peaceable citizens of this fair Dominion 
in developing it into a great and prosperous country, and 
of which I am proud as chief, and one of the many repre- 
sentatives of my people among you to-day, to be able to 
say they are willing and are endeavouring so to do. And 
that our relations with the government of the country 
have always been attended with the happiest results ; and 
that the government of Canada has in general kept faith 
with us, and, therefore, we have very few reasons to com- 
plain in that respect. 

But there is one thing that I must not omit to mention, 
it is a sad circumstance which "has not only grieved me, 
but one and all of the many of my people, who are among 
you to-day, when in going about the historic plains of 
Niagara to visit, as we thought, the different places of 
interest, we came to Fort Messissauga, and lo ! we could 
scarcely believe our own eyes, but when we came to 
realize that what we beheld was a melancholy fact, that 
the old fort was allowed to go to rack and ruin, by the 
sons of the U. E. Loyalists, we were not only grieved, 
but we blushed for the descendants of the U. E, Loyal- 
ists, and for every true Canadian for allowing the dear 
old historical landmarks to become a heap of rubbish. 
Why, the Six Nations would set them an example in 
that respect. A church, though a frame one, that was 
built for them a hundred years ago, is to-day in good re- 


pair, although they have a good brick one for present use. 
A set of communion plate that was given by the good 
Queen Anne, is to-day in a perfect state of preservation ; 
a church bell, Bible and other historical relics equally 
as old, are almost religiously venerated and taken care of. 
And we are of opinion that every true and loyal Cana- 
dian, and the government itself, should see to it that 
these historical landmarks be restored, and kept in repair 
as monuments to the memory of those who were not only 
willing to undergo hardships, but to die, if necessary, in 
defending their country. 

In conclusion, I desire to say that I am glad that the 
time seems to have arrived when the Indian is looked 
upon as being as capable of being educated, and to have 
his mind cultivated, when his disadvantages are taken 
into consideration, as any other race of people, and we 
have undeniable proofs of the same from the fact of our 
having already quite a number in the different learned 
professions, as well as many good mechanics and farmers. 
And, on the whole, the Indians are prospering under 
the good government in which they live, and I firmly be- 
lieve, that the day is not far distant, when the Indians will 
be able to take their stand among the whites on equal 
footing, when I am quite certain that the white popula- 
tion of the Dominion will be forced by their sense of 
justice to accord the Indian that right which is their just 
due, namely, a representation on the floor of the House 
of Commons by one of their own people, who ought to 
know what is best for his people better than any one 
else. And now with these few remarks I beg to be al- 
lowed to resume my seat, thanking you, Mr. Chairman, 
and all for your attention. 

JAMES HISCOTT, ESQ., Warden of the County 'of Lin- 
coln, said : 

Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen. It almost seems 
presumptions in me saying anything, having heard so 
many eloquent speakers. But I would not deserve the 


name of a Canadian, nor would I deserve to represent the 
County of Lincoln, as its warden, if I did not try to do 
all honour to the memory of the noble men and women, 
who sacrificed so much for their country, and who calmly 
endured hunger, destitution and all the privations of a 
howling wilderness for the sake of their country. Not only 
did they give their fortunes and homes, but in many 
cases their lives, for the love and honour of their country. 
The memory of these people, we are commemorating to- 
day, whose last resting place of many is in this and the ad- 
joining county, and whose descendants fought so nobly 
in the war of 1812, and, had it not been for their bravery, 
--Canada would not be a part of that great Empire, which 
we all love so well. 

MR. WM. HAMILTON MERRITT, was next called upon, 
and said : 

Here, in this historic town, in the old County of Lin- 
coln, represented so long a time by his grandfather, he 
would indeed be unworthy of the heritage of the name he 
bore, did he not testify to the same loyalty still existing 
in his family, as was manifested by his forefathers in 
fighting for Canada. 

He was confident that this feeling of loyalty to Canada, 
and therefore at this present, to the Crown, existed as a 
strong under-current through the whole Dominion. He 
would mention an instance which took place in a section 
of the country, where he had resided a great deal during 
the past few years, as a case in point. It occurred on the 
Grand River, in the County of Haldimand, near to where 
the descendants of our brave allies the Six Nation In- 
dians come from, and who, to-day, are so well repre- 
sented at this gathering. At a convention of one of our 
great parties in 1882, called to nominate a candidate to 
represent it, when the name of a candidate for nomination, 
who was not personally well known to many of the dele- 
gates, was brought before the convention, one of the lead- 
ing men in the county rose and said : " Before a nomina- 
tion could be made unanimous in this conv3ntion, they 


must first know the feelings of the candidate on British 
Connection." His answer was, that, " If severance from 
the British Empire took place, and there followed the in- 
evitable annexation to the United States, his inclinations 
would lead him to sell all that he possessed in this his 
native land, and leave it for ever." The reply satisfied 
the convention. This spirit of loyalty as shown there, in 
Haldimand, Mr. Merritt was confident not only existed 
strongly in that county, but would be found to be the 
key-note of the national feelings in every county in 

Being of a younger generation than the previous 
speakers, he believed he could vouch for by far the largest 
number of the young men of Canada, when he said the 
sentiments of loyalty that had been so ably expressed by 
the Lieutenant-Governor, Col. George T. Denison and 
Senator Plumb, would sink deep into their hearts and 
bear fruit of a sterling quality, and that, in spite of the 
" Bohemian " agitation in the press, the young men of 
Canada would be found the strongest advocates and 
warmest supporters of the grand scheme of Federation, 
and that following in the footsteps of their fathers, they 
would be found ready, if unfortunately it were ever 
necessary, to shed their blood for the defence and liberty 
of their country. 

MAYOR GARRETT, of Niagara, I. P. Willson, of Welland, 
Mr. Kilburn, reeve of Beamsville, Lieut.-Col. Denison, 
D.A.G., and other gentlemen delivered brief addresses. 

Five aged and principal chiefs of the Cayuga and 
Onondaga tribes, dressed in the ancient costume of the 
Iroquois, representing the still pagan portion of the Six 
Nations, then came forward, led by the venerable Captain 
Buck, head chief of the Onondagas, and Fire keeper of 
the Confederacy, and performed a ceremonial war dance, 
semi-religious in its character, expressive of the gladness 
of the Six Nations in taking part in this U. E. Loyalist 


The proceedings then closed with three hearty cheers 
for the Queen. 

The following extract from " The Hungry Year," a poem 
by William Kirby of Niagara, was republished in connec- 
tion with the Centennial. 


THE war was over, seven red years of blood 
Had scourged the land from mountain top to sea ; 
(So long it took to rend the mighty frame 
Of England's empire in the western world) 
Rebellion won at last, and they who loved 
The cause that had lost, and kept their faith 
To England's crown, and scorned an alien name, 
Passed into exile, leaving all behind 
Except their honour, and the conscious pride 
Of duty done to country and to king. 

Broad lands, ancestral homes, the gathered wealth 

Of patient toil and self-denying years, 

Were confiscate and lost ; for they had been 

The salt and savour of the land ; trained up 

In honour, loyalty, and fear of God. 

The wine upon the lees, decanted, when 

They left their native soil with sword belts drawn 

The tighter ; while the women only wept 

At thought of old firesides no longer theirs, 

At household treasures reft, and all the land 

Upset, and ruled by rebels to the king. 

Not drooping like poor fugitives they came 

In exodus to our Canadian wilds, 

But full of heart and hope, with heads erect 

And fearless eyes victorious in defeat. 

With thousand toils they forced their devious way 

Through the great wilderness of silent woods, 

That gloomed o'er lake and stream, till higher rose 

The northern star above the broad domain 

Of half a continent, still theirs to hold, 

Defend and keep for ever as their own, 

Their own and England's to the end of time. 


The virgin forests, carpeted with leaves 

Of many autumns fallen, crisp and sear, 

Put on their woodland state ; while overhead 

Green seas of foliage roared a welcome home 

To the proud exiles, who for empire fought 

And kept, though losing much, this northern land 

A refuge and defence for all who love 

The broader freedom of a commonwealth 

That wears upon its head a kingly crown. 

Our great Canadian woods of mighty trees, 

Proud oaks and pines that grew for centuries, 

King's gifts upon the exiles were bestowed. 

Ten thousand homes were planted ; and each one 

With axe, and fire, and mutual help made war 

Against the wilderness and smote it down. 

Into the opened glades, unlit before 

Since forests grew and rivers ran, there leaped 

The sun's bright rays, creative light and heat, 

Waking to life the buried seeds that slept, 

Since time's beginning, in the earth's dark womb. 

The tender grass sprang up, no man knew how, 
The daisies eyes unclosed, wild strawberries 
Lay white as hoar frost on the slopes, and sweet 
The violets perfumed the evening air, 
The nodding clover grew up everywhere, 
The trailing rasp, the trefoil's yellow cup 
Sparkled with dew drops, while the humming bees 
And birds and butterflies, unseen before, 
Found out the sunny spots and came in throngs. 

But earth is man's own shadow, say the wise ; 
As wisdom's secrets are twofold, and each 
Responds to other both in good and ill, 
A crescent thought will one day orb to full, 
And on the earth reflect true light of Heaven. 

But long and arduous were their labours ere 
The rugged fields produced enough for all, 
For thousands came ere hundreds could be fed ; 
The scanty harvests gleaned to their last ear 
Sufficed not yet, men hungered for their bread 
Before it grew, yet cheerful bore the hard 
Coarse fare and russet garb of pioneers, 


In these great woods, content to build a home 
And commonwealth, where they could live secure, 
A life of honour, loyalty and peace. 

* * The world goes rushing by, 

The ancient landmarks of a nobler time, 
When men bore deep the imprint of the law 
Of duty, truth and loyalty unstained. 
Amid the quaking of a continent 
Torn by the passions of an evil time, 
They counted neither cost nor danger, spurned 
Defections, treasons, spoils ; but feared God, 
Nor shamed of tneir allegiance to the king. 

To keep the empire one in unity 

And brotherhood of its imperial race, 

For that they nobly fought and all but won, 

Where losing was to win a higher fame 

In building up our northern land, to be 

A vast dominion stretched from sea to sea ; 

A land of labour but of sure reward, 

A land of corn to feed the world withal, 

A land of life's best treasures, plenty, peace, 

Content and freedom, both to speak and do, 

A land of men to rule, with sober law, 

This Christian commonwealth, God's gift, to keep 

This part of Britain's empire next the heart, 

Loyal as were their fathers, and as free.

Monday, 9th November, 1789. 



The HONOURABLE WILLIAM SMITH, Esquire, Chief Justice. 







His Lordship intimated to the Council, that it remained a ques- 
tion, upon the late Regulation for the disposition of the Waste 
Lands of the Crown, whether the Boards constituted for that pur- 
pose were authorised to make Locations to the Sons of Loyalists, 
on their coming to full Age and that it was his wish to put a 
Marke of Honor upon the families who had adhered to the Unity 
of the Empire, and joined the Royal Standard in America before 
the Treaty of Separation in the year 1783. 

The Council concurring with his Lordship, it is accordingly 
Ordered : 

That the several Land Boards take course for preserving a Regis- 
try of the names of all persons falling under the description afore- 


mentioned to the end that their posterity may be discriminated, 
from future settlers, in the Parish Registers and Rolls of the 
Militia of their respective Districts, and other Public Remem- 
brancers of the Province, as proper objects, by their persevering in 
the Fidelity and Conduct so honourable to their ancestors, for dis- 
tinguished Benefits and Privileges. 

And it is also ordered, that the said Land Boards may in every 
such case provide not only for the Sons of those Loyalists, as they 
arrive to full age, but for their Daughters also of that age, or on 
their Marriage, assigning to each a Lot of Two Hundred Acres, 
more or less, provided nevertheless that they respectively comply 
with the general Regulations, and that it shall satisfactorily appear 
that there has been no Default in the due Cultivation and Improve- 
ment of the Lands already assigned to the head of the family of 
which they are members.
