—REMAKKARIR KM K HISTORIC
HIM O VERY.
Prof. Jaiucn R. tinge. of WimIilug
ton Citr, An eminent geologist and
mineralogist who ha* recently been
engaged in making extensive explo
rations regarding the the works of
the ancient mound builders, reports
! the discovery uf a very remarkable
wall in ('laiborne county, vignteen
i nole* east of Port Uibaon. IIis*. The
discovery has been mentioned in
several paj- rk w ithin the coarse of a
few days, nut they do not apjicar to
have rrulired a tithe of It* antiquart
itn and nrciurologiral interest and iin
Cnrtaare. We condense the parftaR*
n* of the diecovi ry from the Pn»
fesfor’s statement in the Washington
Ibputdii nn. It 4|'|H «rs that kiock*
of the stone have Wn taken hy the
limners for building purposes for
man) j ears, and it has formed a gen
eral quarry for furnishing large
blocks of stone. Hut the farmer*
have n< ver, it seems, been aware of
the antiquarian im|M>rtanee ot‘ this
wall, w bieh i* i laimed to he eieval or
anterior to lladhn* gnat wall in
Kngiand. Prof. I .age employed fa*
borer* nnd mi iivcnil a portion o|
me w:*ii leei in w aim ami lift feet
in length, hut on returning the noil
here ami there lie traced it 000 feet.
The workmen uncovered the wall!
to n depth of* six led but lower tlinh |
thin the exntvations wen* not eon I
tinned, lairgv forest tree* of pine I
and oak several hundred years old
are grow mg on top ot the wall. The
block* are limestone, uml belong to
the tertiary formation. They were
Io wa out of this formation and un.* i
three fbal in length, twenty inches in j
width and twenty-two iiiehen in
thickness. One ot these* blocks has !
been diipiwl to 1'liiladclpliia for the !
milennial. The wall from which it j
tails11 form* two sides of a reel
•agtar, #ne part running east ami j
weat, and the other north and south. \
Tha para\ atioiia were made nuar the
rti• <■* ...ttm «!,««• souitl mull j
thia point another portion of the wall j
re np|wars on the bank* of Havoc
1’icrre, owing to the washing out o|
the i reek, making it a large exim
wire, and it is therrlore judged that |
this is n continuation ot the ancient I
wall. The wall wus built on the
side of a ridge overlooking a swamp I
which, la anew nt times, wus undent-1
Jj the lied of a lake, and the mter
em-e is that the wall was « reeled hy
the ancient orru|mnts as a barter
against an cm my or poa*iahly as an '
ancient levee or dyke erected for the !
protectiou of the inliahitanis against
the enerom hments ot the lake or the <
waters of the Mississippi. From ,
other rviilenres ot the wide extent of!
this wall, an diNcrilad by Prof. tinge, j
it appears that it im luded a large
area nt land, covering prol.uMy ton
souar* miles and extending to the;
Mississippi river. The totality j
where tin* wall exists is in neighbor- I
hood o| the Matches Indiana, who !
were found in a stale ol consklembk*
civilisation when tirst visited hy the i
French, and these reinniiis, it is eon i
jeetured hy Prof, tiuge, hud some
connection with the occupation hy
the warlike ancestor* of tin* interest
mg and famous tribe.
