The scenery to be / found among these Ranges, which extend nearly 500 miles in length, is mostly peculiar to the various districts and / ranges, owing to its geological formation or volcanic disturbances. Our present illustration is one of the many to / be found in the Jim Crow Ranges, between Mts. Blowhard and Macedon.
