Meurtheet Moselle

Meurthe-et-Moselle, a French department, deriving its name from the rivers which traverse it, has Germany as its eastern, and the departments of Vosges and Meuse as its southern and western, boundaries. There are valuable iron and rock-salt mines, and manufactories of woollen and cotton goods, of glass and of pottery. Corn and the vine are also grown.
