sissippi. h. May. v.v. The Bald or Deciduous Cypress is one of the largest trees of the New Continent. The extensive use made of its wood, and other particulars respecting this interesting tree, are fully elucidated in the exceilent work of the younger Michaux, who paid particular attention to the use and properties

of the different American forest trees. 2. C. ramulis compressis, foliis quadrifariam imbricatis

Q. About rocks, near the falls of rivers, in Canada and

particularly in the province of Maine, in rocky or
gravelly situations. N. May. v. v. The Common
Juniper may probably have been originally brought
from Europe ; but the variety B., or probably a distinct
species, seems to be really an original native; it does
not grow above a foot or two high, and one single

root will cover sometimes a space of from fifteen to

twenty feet in diameter. 2. J. foliis ternis basi adnatis, junioribus imbricatis, senio- virginiana.

In dry and rocky woods and fields : Province of Maine

to Georgia. h. May. v. v. The Red Cedar, so
useful and durable a wood, for whose history I refer
to Michaux's work so often quoted, is as yet in great
abundance in most parts of that country, but its ex-
termination is going on so rapidly, that future inhabi-
tants will be very much at a loss, and will feel the

want of it when it is too late. 3. J. foliis oppositis obtusis medio glandulosis, quadrifariam Salina.
