Number 6 of the Publications of Canadian Archives is a Rapport sur les Archives de France relatives à l'Histoire du Canada by Mr. J.-Edmond Roy (Ottawa, 1911, pp. iv, 1093), which upon hasty preliminary examina

The Ontario Bureau of Archives has in the press a volume on the Huron village sites associated with the missionary operations of the Jesuit fathers in the territory known to students of Indian lore as Huronia. The author is the Rev. Father Arthur E. Jones, S.J., F.R.C.S., whose labors in this branch of research have been long continued and 'exhaustive. Another interesting work announced by Mr. Alexander Fraser, the archivist, is the publication shortly of the Journals of the House of Assembly of Upper Canada from 1792 to 1804, now only available in manuscript. Those for the years 1795, 1796, and 1797 are missing. This will probably be the first of a series of volumes bringing the publication down to 1824, from which year printed journals are extant. The material thus to be given to the public will be of the greatest possible value to the official and student world as well as of wide general interest.
