Salt Wells in thh United State The consumption of salt in this coun try is enormous but of unknown mag nitude. Our supplies come from the West Indies and reat Britain chiefly, and Liverpool salt is nothing more than that of the West Indies improved by grinding. A great deal is derived too from domeslio distillation. It will be remembered that an important duty performed by the Navy along the Atlantio and Bay coasts of the Southern States was the destruction of all salt factories, some of which were unexpectedly large and well fur nished, nod turned out immense sup plies. Besides being produced by so lar evaporation of sea water, as in the' cases alluded to, salt is aiao ootainea in this country from distillation of the brine of salt springs and from the borders of salt lakes, where the eun evaporates the water. Now York and Western Virginia, and Ohio and Mohigan furnish something of the former. Texas and Utah provide the latter. The business is now voay im. portant, since we consume...
