Our young readers will thus understand how it happened that the whole continent, with the exception of certain wild regions in the interior, has been wrested from the possession of the aboriginal inhabitants, and converted into settlements inhabited by Europeans and their descendants, while the Indians of America have been driven into the woods and deserts, and whole nations and tribes of them utterly exterminated.
