One of the strongesi points in connection therewith is an abundant supply of the purest mountain water, obtainable within a reasonable distance and by gravitation; never • failing, and to be gathered in by a scheme of concentration which would not be inordinately costly. It lately occurred to us, that there if a spot (not much over 30 miles from Gouiburn, and within 10 miles of the northern end of Lake George) which is superior to many, or even all, ot the proposed points for construction of a reservoir. The place we refe...
