A RAMBLE AMONG THE WHITE MOUNTAINS. From the period of the first settlement of New England down to the present time, the giant heights then called the “Crystal Hills," and since denominated the White Mountains, have attracted the attention, and tempted the visits of many a curious and inquisitive traveller.
