The Lakes er Nartk America.
Professor Guvoti of Prlhectdtl 1ol
lege, calls America the Continent of
humidity, or the Oceanic Continent,
on account of the largo amount of
freshwater it contains. The Krcitt
lakes between the United State and
arc computed to eohtalfT ifcarTyerm
half of all the fresh Water on our
globo, and IX to these we add the lakes
of Brkixh America, Orinoco, I
Plata and otbors, with their hundreds
of tributary lakes and rivors, there is
a quantity of fresh water fully sufllci
cnt to justify Professor Guyot's ap
pellation. , . , ,
Tne great lakes, witn tne Bt. law-
rence, which forms their outlet to the
ocean cover an area of more than one
hundred thousand square miles. The
rise and fall of the water in the larger
lakes has never yet been fully ac
Sometlin.es the water In lake Supe
rior rise eighteen to twenty-four
inches without any apparent cause,
and in llko manner subsides. There
is no uniformity tn these changes.
Prof. William Mather, of the West
Point Academy, several Veilrsago
spent sottie weeks hi studying this
iihenntnenon, and gave it as his opin
ion that the lake system formed a
van! hammntcr. 'Ilia atmosnhere

such as winds of a different tempera

of the cataract, only a barren wants

Tbo fact is tout we have, lu a geo
logical point of view, ouly juet boun
to make acquaintance with these
lakes. Geology is but in ita infutieyi
and tho geology of tho lakes iastill lea
