Old noddy Cuttles lTP. ' Fa? the past tw weeks the Missouri riv?r has been nearly bank full, holding a big stage of water longer than we have ver know it to before. Last Friday and Saturday it waj rising slowly. On Friday, ws learn, it cut a channel thro' the slough which bornJs McKissock's Island on the west, and the main channel is now through it. By this caprice of the Big Muddy rirer trarel is shortened at least twenty miles. Several fine farms, we are informed, are "wiped out" by this move, and we are told that Saturday evening late some of cur citizens saw a large dwelling house and barn floating doWh the river, supposed to be Irom Maj. Denmau's farm, destroyed by the rise. For the Advertiser. ProL nayden's Letter, Mr. Editor: I wish to say a few words to those who are earnestly searching for Coal in this State Much prospecting and boring has al ready been done and much money spent jq that way ; but the information secur ed is of such doubtful character that it throws but little light on the Geological structure of the country. . Whenever a boring is made, or a shaft sunk, each layer or stratum passed through should be carefully noted in its order of super position, and - a careful memorandum made of the thickness, color, etc., of each, the written record should be pre served with great care as the memory cannot be trusted to any extent in mat ters of science. Specimens cf each bed passed through should also be preserved and numbered in theirorder, and if any organic remains are found they should be preserved with the utmost care, as these are the safest guides in determin ing the age cf rocks, A great deal of money is squandered in making several borings ia tha vicinity cf tach other; one careful boring made, or one shaft c u&k to a proper depth, will generally settle the question as to the existence or non-existence .cf a workable bed cf coal within acce&bibie distance of the surface of the whole country around. - The strata being generally so nearly horizontal that if a workable bed cf coal should be found at a rccjcnable depth at Brownville the 'same bed would be reached at not far from the same depth frcrn the surface cf any fam cf the surrounding country, making allowance fcr its elevation above the commencement cf the borinrr. The excellent b)ricg made by Mr. Croxtoa, cf Nebraska City, if continued 400 cr 600 feet farther down anl etch bed recorded with ecrcpnlous care, with what is known cf the beds abort the hcrizca ia the hills near there, would un doubtedly settle . the qnesticn for the whole county at least, arid, perhaps, for a greater area. I would alo say that much libor and money would be saved by commencing the shaft or boring as nearly on a level with the bed of the Missouri as possible, for if a workabled bed exists above that horizon the fact can bo determined from the outcrop?, or in their absence by stripping the looae material from the slopes of the hills Many persons in the Slate on seejng an outcrop of black shale along the baiA' drift in, under the impression that it will change gradually into a bed of coal cr if the seam is four or six inches in thick ness at the outcrcp that it will become thicker as they drift farther into the bank I would say that all experience shows that the chances are very much against them and their labor and money will be almost continualy thrown away. A ted of coal thculd be near thirty inches in thickneRi to be worked by drifting with profit, end it is of 'very little use to fol low the four cr six inch seams which are not uncommon along the Missouri River. I would again ask the people o Nebraska to preserve with great care al Geological ALineralogical or fassil speci mens. Dome or tne organic remains may be of very delicate texture. Let them be wrapped with great care in cottcn or soft paper and be placed where they will not be handled or pricked at by the curicu?. Every specimen should have a label with it showing locality and i possible the character of the bed from which it was taken and the finders name All specimens of Peat, Ores, Clays, Lime stones, etc., xre very much desired and a statement cf their extent debth etc. Much valuable information has already been obtained from the intelligent ob servations of various gentlemen ia the State, and if these observations are con tinned with care, they will prove f great aid in making out the final report. F. V. HAYDEN. U. S. Geological Surveyor. Browuville, July 5ih 1667. About Homesteads. The following interesting facts abou Homesteads is from a letter written by the Commissioner of the General Land Office in reply to. a letter of inquryfrora a settler in Dakota Territory. The re ply is published in ihe Dakotian : First. That any person, male or fe- male , who is the head of a family, or has arrived at the age of twenty-one years, and is a citizen or the United States, or has declard his intention to'become such, is entitled to make a homestead entry under the provisions of the act of May 2U,ibU2. Second After making an entry at the District Olhoe, the party must j roceed with dilligence to build his house, and get upon the land with his family, and commence the culuvauoa and improve inent of the same iiira ine nnn section cl ine act makes the abandonment cf the land, or exchange of reside nceor more than six months at any one time, a cause of for feiture under the clause of the law. You state that many persons claim the right to go upon the land ones evry 6 months. remain there for a day or two, and leave it agsin. That interpretation of the law to be supported by this Office Those parlies could not shdw in the final proof their actual residence and home had been upon their homestead entries. But, on the contrary the evidence would indicate that land had been only a temporary abode. Hence such quasi settlers could have no cause fcr grievance if, upon presentation of the facts their entries could be declared invalid. Ia brief, tha ihe acts of the settler must be as to show an intention fully to comply in good faith with the requirements of the law and make the land what the law intends it to be his actual residence with such im provements and cultivation for the soil as his means and strength will allow. An exception to this requirement of res idence is made where the entry is for an adjoining farm or homestead. In such cases the party is not required to build and reside upon the adjacent homestead entry.But he must prove residence upon the orginal farm to which tha homestead tract adjoins, and al?oI cultivation and improvements oftthe adjoining tract Proceedings Board of Manager Ncmalia Co. Ag. Society. Board metpersuant to call, at 1 o'clock, p. m.,on the 6th, at the Co. Clerk's offi ce in this city. President of the Society in the Chair. On motion of H. O.
