RPlesidents of New York customarily
lcok to the West and SoL", and to
foreign countries for precious and
se CMius stones in their natural
state, but in the Empire State are to
be found some of the most beautitul
known. Underlying New York City
are gem-beariiz guartz reins, -but
these -aults era now locked and in

stones long ago gave "p his place to

An 1ide ! th-- te i d bl;et
of the rre'ic"s stoes fcuind in Ne'v
York Sige may b3 gathered from i
visit to th Timtny-Morgan coliection
of gems, belongmg to the State
Cabinet atAibany, and to the Mineral
ogical Clab's collection in the Museum
of National Ykistory. On Manhattan Isl
and are found'the yellow aquamarine,
or beryl. the pale-green beryl, and
the small, transparent red garnet, the
quartz veins bearing them traversing
the archmean rocke. The same veins
irrilvewhers in the State towaxds
the Adirondack -region. In Lewis
County, however, precious stones are
most abundant. - Here are found, in
particular, great anautities of purple
and red garnets. -At Newcomb, in the
same county, -beautiful crystals of
brown tourmaline are found. Prof es
sor Beecher, of Yale, made this dis
covery some time ago. In Richville,
in the townthip of De Kalb, the finest
crystals of pyroxene are picked up
from time to time. Cut into gems
weighing from three to thirty carats
each, they possess a peculiar charm.
They are of a rich, cily green, differ
ing from the tourmaline, peridot, or
green garnet.
One of the most valuable of the na
tive precious stones is the titante or
sphene, which is found in the "Tilly
Foster" mine, uear Brewster's, in Put
nam Courty. This crystal is of a
brilliant golden substance, and a great
favorite with lapidaries. Cut inlo
gems, it shows a greater play of color
than the diamond itself, it is said by
Mr. Kunz, the Government expert. It
would be one of the most remarkable
gems but for its softness; in beauty
aud coloring it is unmatched. A sin
gle stone, in its natural form, brings
from $100 to $300. In excavating for
the ship canal on the upper end of
New York Island, crystals of smoky
quartz were found in blasting the
magnesium limestone. So exquisite
in their crystallization and natural
-olish were they that they had only
to be cu~Idnto smoky topaz.
v near i Count
seems jo be the home of the Gaii
line. One of these stones, of the col
lection-of. ?lihu Boot, Sr., is as thiel
as a mai"-s neck. Occasionally th
crystals are transparent enough to af
ford gems of from one to five carat:
each. In Orange County, near Sus
sex, on the New Jersey line, crystal
of sapphire are found, but they ar
not sufficiently tra parent to be c
much value. B ly they have bee:

sandstone. they are more beautifa
than the diamond of the Africar
mines when it is first brought t<
light. They are found in great pro
fusion in Herkimer County, and thej
are usually set in pins and charms.
Jewelers' say, however, that nowhere
do they look so well as in their nat.
ural state, and mineralogists discover
them always with delight. The cry
stals, when they are fine, are snowy
white, like Carrara marble, and when
free from flaws, very beautiful. Some
times they are found so minute that,
when carefully sorted from the mud.

Ging~ For a Lost renrura.
STreoasure Island" is a omance
whc snot likely- in these days to
jind a co unterpart in the world of
reality. bnt an intimation brought to
our notice that an expedition is in
course of --preparation to enden-or to
recover the gold which was lost in
the ship Gene~al Grant, under ex
traordinary circumstances. in May.
1806, seems to promise exciting times
fortheadvntuerswho roay partici
pate in it. The stoi-y is that the Gen
eral Grant was on her way from Mel
bourne to London with a number of
miners returning from the Ballarat
diggings when she was becalmed off
the Aackland Islands, and a heavy'
swell drove her on to the ohore, where
sho entered a rift in the rocks and wa
gradually driven into a care. Here
she sank, and of more thsu eighty
souls aboard not a dozen were saved.
Severatl insuccessfuli attempts have
been made to recover the gold. The
new expiedition of which we ahall
pobably hear more later, has made up
its mind to succeed.-London Chroni

suburban sewage farms; situated To
spectively at Mery and Trial. A largo
portion of the Mery farm is already i
working order, and was ofilcially '
ited a day cr two ago by the municipli
delegates. Mery is a high-lying sandy
plain, known to the local inhabitant3
as the Sahara of Paris. With the help
of the sewage it is to be converted into
pasture land, and it is to be hoped
that when thus changed this desert
will aid in the solution of the problem
o supplying the capital with pure
milk. A few yaars ago such expecta
tions would have been scoffed at, but
the results obtained with the sewage
farm already in existence at Gennevil
"iers have converted the most hardened
skeptic. In fact, the inhabitants of
Gennevilliers, whose land has gone up
enormously in value, have just erected
a statue to Durand-Claye, who caused
the new system to be applied, and
whose life was threatened by his fel
low-citizens when first he proposed the

Just as in the case of practi-ally
every great scientiie achievement,
there has for some monthe past been
an active course of speonlatic in
various channels respecting the prob
able uses to which liquid air could be
put with benefit to mankind. The
X-ravs came in for their share of this
sort of discussion, much of which was
uninfcrmed, eome of it harzful to the
accurate judgment of the people, and
some of it sugestive. Liquid air has
been hailed aE a great po-ver agency
and as a refrigerant, capable in either
capaciy of revoluticiizing existing
methods. Later developments have
served to cast doubt somewhat upon
these sweeping claims. It is found
that there is a serious difficulty in the
storing of the power, with an alter
native of running grave risk of el
plosions or of suffering less through
wcate. Thus far little progress has
been made toward the general adop
'tion of the liquid for either purpose.
Meanwhile a new field for it has been
oened-that of sut gery and medicine.
There is little doubt now in scientific
minds that this new agency will prove
of raiae in mauy branches of their
work.
