formity ol its meahderings. The river, in
its onward course, mkes a
sweep, almost with the precision of a com
pass, and then it i precipitated diagonaliy
across its chancel to a curve of equal reg
ularity upon j the opposite shore ' The
deepest channel, and the most rapid crr
rent, is said to exist in the bend; ami
thus the stream generally infringes upon t! o
bend side, and throws tip a sand bar on
the opposite shore. So constantly do thc-o
sinuosities occur, that there are said to I o

the confluence of the Ohio and the G il ;
