LAURENTIAN MOUNTAINS, a range of mountains extending from Labrador to the Arctic Ocean , whole course about 3,500 miles. It gives the water shed separating the tributaries of the St. Lawrence from those of Hudson's Bay; but beyond the basin of the St. Lawrence it is traversed by two affluents of Hudson's Bay, the Saskatchewan and the Churchill, the former taking its source in the Rocky Mountains, while still farther on it becomes the limit of the Hudson's Bay rivers, dividing their sources and those of the Back and other streams, for 800 miles, from the tributaries of the Mackenzie. The general elevation of the Laurentian range is from 1,500 to 1,600 feet; some peaks about the Sagueney attain a height of 4,000 feet. The surface is of a mammillae character, its hills being. worn by glacial action into round backed Corms, in general thickly clothed with wood, the prevailing trees on the summits being evergreens, in some places chiefly pine, and in others spruce, while hardwood sometimes abounds on the tower elevations and in the valleys. The valleys are in general not very wide, and many are worn into deep pits holding ponds and rakes some streams indeed are nothing more from their sources to their mouths than a chain of such quiet expansions united by short discharging channels. The prodigious number of these sheets of water, great and small. bespangling the whole area, is one of its most remarkable features, and when looked upon as displayed on a map, they appeal so scattered at random over the surface as to contradict almost any supposed law of distribution The Laurentide rocks are oldie azoic era.
