Fatheas and brothers, leaders of the blinds
But wanderers now,- a bation's pour remains ;
But now, alas! exhausted is our store!
The sons of labour now usurp our soil,

Should through the wide Cabean * spread your fame.
The Ochipwey language is spoken and understood by the Alganquins, Nipilengs, Olawis, Manomings, Patawatings, and several other tribes, forming a population, Nough widely extended, of more iban fifty thousand souls.
