n CELEBRATEO 1 A
Th? 3IvtrIons Inland Sa Ivhowii 3
At the annual mealing of the One
bee geographical society, bold on the
will of January, a paper was reml v
Mr. Bignell, laud surveyor, throwing
additional light upou the mysterious
inland sea visited by him last sum
mer in Kupert's Land, and kuovn as
Lake Mistassini. Foam Bay or the
most northwesterly of the two great
arms into which the nearest portion
of the lake is divided by a long nar
row peninsula, is about three hun
dred miles from Luke St. John and
the St. Lawrence. The ouly settle
ment of any kind found by him in
the vicinity was the Hudson Bay
company's iost, a small station in
charge of the factor or trader, WH
liam Miller, whose father accom
panied one of the early expeditions
sent, in search of Sir John Franklin.
The half dozen buildings comprising
the station arc surrounded by no
stockade of any kind, a fact which
speaks for the friendly disposition of
the neighboring Indians. These are
of the Montaguaix tribe, who to the
number of thirty-five or forty fami
lies, reside in the vicinity of the post
and subsist upon the wild fowl and
fish of the lake. Iu the autumn they
leave for the woods on thoir annual
hunting and trapping expeditions.
They are reported to be tolerably
free from.crime, though an occasional
murder occurs among them; bnt their
habits are of the most filthy descrip
tion. They are nominally Christian,
and are visited once a year bv a cler
gyman from Hudson Bay. They still
hold, however, to a number of hea
thenish traditions, and their medi
cine men and magicians still exercise
over them a very great control.
These Indians would appear, how
ever, to be much less superstitious
than some others whose camping
grounds were seen by Mr. Bignell
aoove .uai;e buipsnaw. mere is an
other small lake near the last men
tioned, for which some Indian tribes
have the most profound veneration.
On its shores the explorer found an
Indian burying ground, where in the
shape of offerings to the departed
dead, the skulls of bears, beavers, ot
ters aud caribou hang from the
branches of the neighboring trees,
and the graves of the dead warriors
are strewn with relics of the chase, in
the shape of the weapons, the cauoes
aud paddles the clothingnd. even
thotocaoIandmatchTs which be
longed 10 mem in me. une ol tne
most remarkable features of this vir
tually ttuknown country is noted by
Mr. Bignell in connection with the
height of land already referred to by
him, and which forms the boundary
between thaprovince of Quebec and
Rupert's Land. Though, as men
tioned above, it divides the rivers
flowing south from those emptying
themselves into Hudson Bay, it is no
where more than six to eight feet in
height, and sometimes much less. Iu
fact Mr. Bignell found it at times
most difficult to trace it at all, aud it
is said that one lake is so situated
that it has two outlets, one toward
the St. Lawrence, the other toward
The climate is reported less severe
than the latitude of the lake would
lead one to suppose. In 18S3 the ice
first took on the lake was on the 4th
of November, but the main body was
not frozen over until the middle of
January. The ice broke up in 18S1
on the 22d of May, but did not en
tirely disappear until the 8th of June.
Excellent potatoes and other roots
are raised at the post, and it is be
lived that oats would ripen, though
they have never been tried. The flora
shows little difference from that im
mediately adjoining the height
of land on the other side. One
of the most esteemed plants
in this region is the Ilona
ceniu Jlornura, the root of which is
said to be a complete specific in cases
of small-pox. The Indians of the
vicinity have never known it to fail,
and its use also prevented the pitting
of the skin, which is frequently ono
of the most dreaded results of the
disease. The ground is covered bv
what is known as the sub-arctic for
est, consisting principally of canoe
birch, or bouleau, tamarac, poplar,
balsam and spruce, but no pine. There
would appear to be little mer
chantable timber, most of the
trees averaging seven to oight
luuuub iu mummer, inougn a
lew run to twenty-two inches. Mr.
Bignell considers the soil well suited
for agricultural purposes, and saw
sumcient of it himself for the forma
tion of at least a dozen parishes. The
auimais in me vicinity ot tuo lake are
the caribou, moose, bear, lynx, wolf,
wolverine, otter, mink, weasel, hare,
red, black, white, silver and cross
foxes, and black bears of unusual size
No new light will be cast upon the
actual extent and configuration ot
Lake Mi6tassini until the return of
the expedition now engaged in its sur
vey. Mr. Bignell ascended it for 120
miles without reaching the main body.
Just as in the case ot Lake Superior,
however, the turbulence ot its waves
frequently gives warning twelve to
fourteen hours in advance of ap
proaching storms. In the o'pinion of
Mr. Bignell, the immense body of
water is an expansion of the Rupert
river, just as the great American and
Canadian lakes are of the St. Lawrence.-
