Introduction. It is designed in this paper to describe the character and distribution of those deposits in the Chenango valley which owe their form and structure, wholly or in part, to the waters of the melting glacier. Theoretic considerations will have but a limited place, and especially must any adequate reading of the glacial history of the region await the detailed study of parallel areas on the east and west. The upper course of Oriskany creek oil the north is included in the study, the common valley of the divide near Bouckville being as spacious as farther down on either stream. The position of the water-parting is determined within certain limits by the disposition of the glacial flood materials. The neighboring cols at Pratts, Waterville, and Cassville are of a similar nature. Thence the north-flowing streams pass, by short, sharp descent, to the Mohawk and Ontario waters, while the Chenango . . .
