The Value of Trees. ,L Let our readers carefully pcruso the follow ing article from the N. A. Review, It gives a clear explanation of the cause which makes Michigan far more healthy than many of the western states. In an open country, tho absoluto quantity of water which tho rivers discharge, is not only less than in a wooded country, but the flow is incomparably more irregular and un equal. This week the Btrcam may be a foam ing torrent, forbidding all passage ; next week it will bo only a sluggish pool which scarcely wets your horse's fetlocks. -Since our west ern lands have been cleared,;, the; alterations in tho rivers have been much more marked and violent. Tho fact has been vexatiously . brought home to our practical men by tho constant hindrance ot tno mm-sireams irom iresneis and. droughts. Many water-privileges which half a century ago,' were steady and valuable, have, now become nearly worthless. The dam which was conveniently put up to saw an adjoining forest into "profit...
