Raquette River.—A French word meaning a " snow shoe." It ia said to have been first so called, by a Frenchman named Parisein, long before settlements were begun in this quarter, and that the name was suggested by the shape of a marsh, near its mouth. The Iroquois name I Ni-ha-na-wa-tc, or " rapid river," is peculiarly applicable. It is said that Colonel Louis, the Indian chief, told Benjamin Raymond, when surveying, that its Indian name meant " noisy river," for which reason it bag been usually written Racket.
