fingers, into the finest white sand. At a Mill near the River Ararat, I saw a pair of milestones, said to hae been quarried from an eminence eminence on the North West side of the Pilot They consisted of quartz rock somewhat resembling French Burr, and appeared to be of sn excellent quality. Grind Stones are also quarried from the grit rock of these Mountains.
