Androscoggin River, New England

Or Ameriscoggin. Its most northerly branch is the Margallaway river which receives the waters of Dead and Diamond rivers, and unites with those flowing from Umbagog lake, about a mile distant from its outlet. From this junction, the confluent stream pursues a southerly course till it approaches near the White Mountains, where it receives several considerable tributaries, and passes into Maine, N. of Mount Moriah. It there bends to the E. and S.E., in which course, through a fertile country, it passes near the sea-coast, and turning N. runs over the falls at Brunswick, not far from Bowdoin College, into Merrymeeting bay, forming a junction with the Kennebec, 20 miles from the sea.
