Physical Aspect. — The face of Alabama is somewhat varied. Near the gulf of Mexico the country in low and level, embracing numerous swamps and savannas. A large portion ot the upland, toward the centre, consists ofpine-barrens, thinly wooded, or covered with coarse grass. The soil here is generally sandy and thin. The central part of the state consist of a table-land, with a deep, rich, productive soil. Toward the north, the surface becomes mountainous and hilly, beyond which lies the valley of the Tennessee, where the soil is highly fertile. (Fanning's, 1853)
