Cape Breton, an island at the eastern extremity of Nova Scotia, mostly between lat. 45° and 47° 5' N., and lon. 60° and 61° 30' W. Extreme length from north to south 100 miles; extreme breadth 85 miles; area 3,120 square miles. The first settlement in this island (which was united under the same government with Nova Scotia in 1819) was made in 1712 by the French. It has been discovered by Cabot in 1497. Previous to the year 1700 it had been frequented only by fur traders and fishermen. After the loss of Acadia, the French turned their attention to this island, and began to build fortifications at Louisburg, which continued to be the capital for many years, the government being modeled on that of Quebec. War having again been declared between France and England, Governor Shirley of Massachusetts, formed the design of taking Louisburg, though the place was supposed to be almost impregnable. The expedition sailed from Boston and arrived at Canso on the 5th April 1745. The reinforcements dispatched by the French were captured by the English Admiral and Louisburg was finally forced to capitulate. The Acadians in great alarm sent to France for help and an expedition was got up to reconquer Acadia and Cape Breton. But the hostile fleet met with terrible disasters. Wrecked and dispersed by violent storms and the crews thinned by epidemic, the expedition accomplished nothing and only a remnant returned to France. By the treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle in 1748, Cape Breton was restored to France, but it was soon after finally attached to the British possessions. The island is very irregularly shaped, being triangular and is greatly indented with bays. An inlet called Bras d'Or (i.e., arm of gold) entering Cape Breton on the east nearly separates it into two islands, rendering every part of its interior accessible by water. The two natural divisions thus created are striking contrast. The northern portion being high, bold and steep; while that to the sough is low, intersected by numerous inlets, diversified with moderate elevations, and rises gradually from its interior shore until it presents abrupt cliffs toward the Atlantic ocean. The highest land in this portion does not exceed 800 feet, while the northern division at its termination in North Cape rises to the height of 1,800 feet. Between North Cape and Cape Ray on the opposite coast of Newfoundland, 48 miles distant is the main entrance to the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The Bras d'Or lake is 50 miles in length and 20 miles in breadth. Its depth of water varies from 12 to 60 fathoms, and it is very secure and navigable. In several of its larger bays the timber shops from England receive their cargoes. There are several fresh water lakes and numerous rivers, but none navigable. Salt springs are found on the coast. The climate is varied, but not so rigorous as that on the adjoining continent. Vegetation is very rapid; Maize and other grains are raised; but the corn produced is insufficient for home consumption. Marble, granite, limestone and primitive slates prevail; and gypsum, salt and coal are found, the latter in great abundance and of a superior quality. The coal deposits of Cape Breton occupy not less than 120 square miles. There are also rich deposits of the best iron ore and gold.

Cape Breton has long been celebrated for its fisheries. During its occupancy by the French it is said that the harbor of Louisburg exported no less than 500,000 quintals of cod annually, and 600 vessels were employed in its trade and fisheries. The products of the Cape Breton fisheries in 1871 were as follows: -

Dried Cod, cwt 126,275
Scalefish cwt 64,025
Pickled fish, Mackerel in barrels 49,226
Pickled fish Herrings in barrels 39,266
Pickled fish Salmon in barrels 944
Other Pickled fish in barrels 3,363
Oil of all kinds in gallons 74,625
Estimated value $1,283,050

5,780 men were employed in the above fisheries.

The forests of Cape Breton furnish large quantities of excellent ship timber, and shipbuilding constitutes an important and lucrative business.

Cape Breton has as yet no railway communication with Nova Scotia proper, but a line is projected between New Glasgow and Louisburg, one of the finest harbors in the world. This would give the trade of the Dominion an outlet winter and summer. It is about 200 miles nearer Europe than Halifax, and as a coaling depot it would be unequalled on account of the cheapness of coal. A short railway of ten miles now connects the coal mines with the port of Sydney, but the several companies are arranging to build a line to Louisburg so as to ship at all sea-sons. As coal only costs $1.25 a ton at the pit mouth, it will only add 50 cents to the ton to be delivered at Louisburg. The estimated cost of a railway from Now Glasgow to Louis-burg is five million dollars. Cape Breton is divided into four counties, Richmond, Inverness, Victoria and Cape Breton, and sends 8 members to the Provincial Legislature, and 5 to the House of Commons. Pop. in 1861,: in 1871, 75,483.
