A much more t probable supposition however is, that this sifperkufl covering has resulted front the decomposition of I the rncks themselves. The principal difficulty which attends this supposition is, to account for the great depth of the covering, or to assign a sufficient reason why it should be so much deeper here than it is in uther countries, whei?e the same sorts of rocks are found, but remain for ages with out de-compositionJ The following arguments appear to me both to establish the truth of the supposition, and to account for the unusual extent to which the process of decomposition has proceeded. The rocks of this country east-wan 1 of the mountains, very generally exhib-it a strong tendency to decomposition. This tact is observable not only in those rocks which conn pose the principal formations, bu t also in many individual specimens. Thus we meet with many examples ot small masses ly ihg oavthc surface which we should take for red ochre, but on breaking them we find with in one of the liardest silicious stones, called greenstone. . Hornstone, another very hard mineral which abounds in this state, is usually fou nd inc rusted with a whitish coat, which has resulted from a decomposition of the exterior;, and this process has in some instances proceeded, so far, that entire veins of horn-stone have passed into the state of fine white infusible claystone. On breaking the smalt masses of which these veins of clay are. composed, we may occasionally find pieces which exhibit in the centre a portion of the original Itornstone. The granite rocks of this country manifest, in most cases, the same tendency to decay. Wc may often see, in deep gullies, a shelly kind of granite, composed of grains loosely cohering, and ; exhibiting the work of decomposition still going on, even at the deptli of ten feet or more from the surface -and in all the western counties, whose geology we have examined, the granite' rocks, with a few exceptions, contain a large proportion of feldspar, which is constantly de-composi n g in to vv h ite clay and dest n lying t he texture of the rock.; The abundant proportion of this substance will account for the de cay of the granite rocks: anil the remarkable diffusion of iron, particularly in the state of pyrites, amonV most of the other rocts. esoe- j cially those of the slate formation, will sug gest a reason tor the disintegration of these.
