stones within it are rolind and
smooth as though washed by the
ocean; they are of various sizes,
and of every color. On one side is
a cavern 60 feet deep

other ruptures seem to indicate some
great change in this mountain since
its formation. This village is very
pleasant, and the scenery around It
is of a fascinating character. The
people here are good farmers, and
are noted for their good schools and
philanthropic disposition. *    .    *
