The Great Tree of California.
A pew years ago the botanical
world was excilod by tho discovery
in California of two specios of trees

A enrions rivalry sprang op a
mong botanists relative to tho na
ming of our California species.
Tho British botanists Lindloy, Gor
don and others called it Wellington
niit yijnuten, aftor their great mili
tary hero. Mr. Kellogg, ot CalifoT
nia, nettled at tho idea of having an
American troe symbolise a British
soldier, called it Washmgtonia yigan
tea. Others again called it Amcr-
icamisgijiintexs; but Dr. Torroy, of
mis city, siiowea Clearly thai it be
longed la tho genus Sequoia, and
named it S. gitjantca ; tho English
botanists, however, persist in call
ing it S. Wellingtons.
This species is found on tbo wes
tern fluiiks of t);o Sierra Kovada
Mountains, and is snid to havo been
first discovered by a company of
minors. Somo, however, givo tho
honor of the discovery lo Mr. Lobb,
an English Scientific explorer, and
others again lo Douglass, in 1831.
Wo are inclined to beliove that
Douglass discovered it, but did not
meet with the trovo in Cnlivorna

Oneo! tho Inrgost trees was folloj
some ten or twelve years ago. E.
timatmg its ago by tho annual rings,
it must hnvejbceii throo thousand
one hundred years old ; it was over
ninety foot in circniuferonco at the
base. Tho stump is used as a ball
room, and tho hollow trunk as a
bowling-alley. A mnn can ride on
horseback, for a distance of seventy-
five feet through it, going out by a
anoi-itoio in the side, it required
six week s labor to fell tho treo at a
cost of (500. It was done by borinir
holes throngh it with largo pump
nugors; a largo pine tree was then
felled ngamst it, but this not suc
ceeding, wedges were driven into
the cuttings, and tho troo thrown
from its contro of gravity. It was
estimated to contain two hundred
and fifty thousand foet of timber.
Professor Brower has since found
a still Inrgor troo, whii:h measures
one hundred and six foot hi circum
foronce ut four foet frcm i ho ground
and probably hud boon one hun

ronce, as it had lost some of its but.
tresses by fire; it waa two hundred
and seventy. six foet high.
Another specios, S. tempervirens,
is much more p'ontiful, and is also
a very magnificent troo. It was
discovered by Mensios in 1790. At
Santa Cruz, above Monterey, succN
roons of ibis species, two hundred
and seventy foot high, wore found
by Hurtwcg, and Douglass speaks
of specimens throo hundred foot
high anj thirtytwo foot in circum

that measures fifty-five feot ,in eir.
