Coal In Kcbraslta.
K.'JMuor Advertiser:--During my so
journ at Lincoln, 1 examined all of the
works on Geology, that there ia In the
State Library, in order to form an
opinion as to whether we can reason
filly hope to find coal In paying quan
tities In thi3 portion of Nebraska.
From all the Information I could
get, I am of the opinion that there Ls
coal here,' but that it is two hundred
or more feet below the level of the sur
face of ihe Missouri river.
Thegeneraldipof the rocks in north
western Missouri, in Kansas and Ne
braska, i3 to the north and west.
At Ft. Scott and other places in
southern Kansas, there is an out-crop
of coal several feet thick. This strata
finks as We come north, nnd nnnr tlio
'(r-"e3 .river there' is another vein
crops out of less thickness. I under
derstand this last vein to be Identical
with the vein at Lexington and else
where in Missouri. . ' ' -
;Tbe: State Geologist of Kansas esti
mates that this last vein is about one
hundred and forty feet below the level
of the Missouri river at Leavenworth.
. David Dale Owen, in his geological
reconnoisance of this country in 1S49,
came to the Missouri rivet at Council
Bluffs, and descended the river to its
mouth. ; He says: "The base of the
hills under this marl is gravel and
drift, the whole resting on carbonifer
ous strata." This was at Council
Again : "The first locality where I
had an opportunity of inspecting the
carboniferous rock in place, on the
Missouri was at liellvue."
:t At this place the rock was ten or
twelve feet above the water, but at
Key creek or Rock Bluffs, it was one
hundred feet, and a few miles further
down the same rock was forty feet
above the watet. Showing that there

This Is the first place where shale is
seen, but from there down, itcropsout
in many places. Again he writes :
"The first workable bed of coal
which I encountered in my descent of
the, Missouri, was at Wellington. It
is a few feet above the level of the
river. At Lexington it is fifty feet
above the river."
At Lexington he was assured there
was another vein below the surface of
the river, which I believe to bo the
same as the Ft. Scott vein.
We all know, that at Nebraska City,
and at various places in Johnson, Paw
nee and Richardson counties, there is
a vein of coal, variously stated to be,
from twelve to twenty-two inches
thick. The question naturally arises:
Is this the same vein that crops out at
Lexington, Missouri, and in Kansas,
near the Kansas river? I think not,
and base ray belief on the. fact, that
the general dip of the rocks is to the
north and west, and as the State.Geol-
ogist of Kansas estimates that vein to
be one hundred and forty feet below
the surface of the river at Leaven
worth. I assume it to be at least two
hundred feet below the river at Brown- j
That' we are In the upper part of the
carboniferous series, I am confident.
The Magncsian limestones are above
the coal measures, and as we go north
and west, we come to this kind of
limestone, and in northern and central
Nebraska we find the chalk fomation.
I have now given "the reason for
the faith that Is in me," if any person
can thr.ow any additional light on this
subject, I, for one, will be glad to hear
trom them. .. .
There is a man at Nebraska City,
who has a patent borer. I am told
that he will bore in a nine inch hole,
M A 1 5

I do not think it would be necessary
to bore over five hundred feet at this
place, and if coal can be found at less
than that depth, it will not cost as
much to mine it, as it would to strip
off eight feet of earth at the surface.

Norma l School, Feb. 25,
Editor Advertiser: There are now
in ine iNormai uiass aiouc twelve
young ladies and gentlemen who wish
to engage in teaching during the
spring and summer months. ' Some of
them already have situations in view;
others have not.
As principal of the school, I feel it
due the teachers and people to let it be
known that there are those here whom
we can confidently recommend as ev
ery way quanned to tcacn success
It Is not alone In having mastered
the branches they have studied but as
teachers, many of them having taught
classes in the school for more than a
term, and have evinced a tact and apt
ness to teach, that convinces the facul
ty beyond a doubt of their ability, not
only to impart instruction, but also to
manage a school in all its details, suc
cessfully! The Normal School niust be yet
counted as an experiment in this State,
as no student has received a regular
certificate from the school. But few
students from distant parts of the
State have been in attendance, hence
we cannot expect very much result
I5ut the people must give these
teachers an opportunity to test their
ability; and as principal, I will do all
I can consistently to secure any dis
trict a competent teacher for the sum
mer school, if the directors will con
sult me by letter.
: I sincerely hope that there may be
evinced a proper desire to obtain
thoroughly qualified teachers, and at
the same time to give the teachers a
chance to show their ability.
'I could speak with pleasure of the
advancement and proficiency some
have made, but think it not. best to
make any distinctions, lest they may
be invidious. Several have nearly
completed Davies Bowdon, Algebra,
Geometry, Rhetoric, Astronomy, Phi

What vre may Kxpecl or Gen.
. .!! Grant. ' ".
BY CHARLES (. CAM.E.
First, Gem. Grant will bo President
in fact as well as in name. As , we
have seen, he never was a man to hes
itate about exercising any amount of
lower that might be confided to him.
In Jackson's place, he might-have
said, "I take the responsibility"; but
he would have taken it, nevertheless,
and said nothing about it. Even one
of his associates in the Gelena leather
store understood this peculiarity well
enough to give Governor Yates of 111.,
who had confessed his inability to get
at the special capacities of "this Capt.
Grant," the following good advice:
"The" way to deal with him is to ask
him no questions,, but simply order
him to duty. He will obey promptly."
The people have now summoned this
same prompt officer to be President of
the United htates, and that he will be.
If any individuals high in position or
prone to intrigue indulge the hope of
managing or improperly Influencing
Mr. Johnson's successor, it only re
mains for them, seeing how blind they
have been to tlie plainest pages of re
cent history, to take a lesson or two
in the school of experience and pay
Secondly, it is but a reasonable cal
culation that Gen. Grant, In. the dis
charge of the duties of the Presidency,
will win a substantial success not un
stated to his martail renown. Indeed
nine tenths of those who have risen
above the folly of confounding thegif
of popular oratory with executive tal
ent con cede already that hd has all the
main requisites for administering the
affairs of the country at this time, ex
cept, possibly, the information de
rived from long civil experience. His
generalship reveals governing ability
of tho highest order, 'circumspection
only matched by energy, ami an un
erring faculty for selecting the right
men for subordinates. As to the
possible deficiency alluded to,
and we must always bear in
mind that there is no special
training school for the Presidency,
Gen. Grant is the son of his
time, and, though he may not be
learned in the statesmanship of books,
he 'comprehends his own age. Start
ing with that political tabula ram, tlie
mind of an army officer, having real
ly voted but once before the war (for
Buchanan), and having always re
gretted that, he enjoj-ed the excel
lent privilege of having" nothing to un
learn. Tiie crisis found him without
prejudices, and he took in all its ele
ments uispasionately as comprising
the true situation with which he was
to deeil. Even that conservative bias,
of which a few good Republican sup
porters are still. absurdly suspicious,
was in his favor, for winch it has been
observed that the descent from J-outh-
ful liberalism has often been as swift
and extreme as the apostasy of a Straf
ford, the contrary tendency, as illus
trated in the live of men like Peel
and Gladstone, gives he finest fruits
of genuine progress. Hence it hap
pened, that, while anti-slavery men or
many years' standing were worrying
over the future relations of the institu
tion they had so long fought and
feared, Grant calmly foresaw and an
nounced; and, more than that, every I
stage of the extinguishing process can
now be traced in his military orders, j
in advance of the action of Congress
and of the executive. , The same re
mark may be made respecting the re
construction policy of the govern
ment ;. Its germs are all to be found in
the record of his field measures, while
toward the maturing of that policy he
gave his valued counsels and his pro
foundest sympathies. Of all the great
questions which appear to demand
settlement during the incoming ad
ministration, it may be truly said that
none are older than Gen. Grant's pub
lic life, while nlost have already
touched him. at many points in his
career, and engaged his earnest atten
tion. For the last three years iu par
ticular he has reflected upon the po
litical juncture, perhap.s with the
prescience that he would be called to
deal with it practically : he has con
ferred with the acutest statesmen of
the day, and has mingled with his
countrymen in every part of the Union.
It would not be strange, therefore, if
the whole situation bearing upon the
Presidency, comprising policies, men,
and measures, should be at this mo
ment's accurately mapped out iu his
miud as were his great campaigns be
fore he fought them in the field, and
should be followed by national results
hardly second in value. Atlantic
Monthly for March. - .
Dad for Omaha.
The Sioux City papers say that the
military headquarters of the district
are soon to be removed from Omaha to
that place. The principle reason for
this movement is the heavy losses
which the Government.has heretofore
sustained by the sinking of steamers
laden with government stores between
St. Louis and Sioux City, while from
that point up the losses have been
comparatively very small. Under the
new arrangement it is the intention of
the Government to ship supplies by
rail to Sioux City, and from there
transport them to their destination on
the steamers of the Northwestern
Transportation Company. The Gov
ernment has determined to abandon
tlie policy of letting tlie transportation
of goods by river to the lowest bidder,
but will give tho jobs to the best boats
and most responsible parties, and will
avoid as far as possible, the most dan
gerous portions of the river. Last year
the value of Government goods lo.st by
the destruction of steamers south of
that point was upwards of two mil
lions of dollars. Alove there the los
ses were, insignificant. This is not
only the fact in regard to last vear,
but of many previous years. These
ruinous losses the Government pro
noses to avoid, and will avoid, hv ma

ters and the point for the shipment of
goods to the military posts and Indian
agencies on the upper Missouri. .

Hon. G. B. CrnfT, President Trunk Railroad
Company, Nebraska, -
Dear Sir: A short time since I
addressed you a letter on the impor
tance of the early construction of vour
road along the right bank of the Mis
souri river, between the Kansas State
line and Omaha, and its extention
above to Sioux City, which before long,
will go onto the rich mines of Mon
tana, connection with the subject of the
importance of a direct route to the sea,
on the shortest line, through Kansas,
the Indian Teritory and Texas, reach
ing the Gulf of Mexico at Galveston,
following nearly the line of the lSih
parallel of longitude. This great inte
rial line of railroad will be not less
than 1,500 miles west of New York by
the shortest rail line, while it will
reach the sea at Galveston, distant
from Omaha not to exceed IKK) miles,
an advantage of more than the entire
distance to Chicago by over 100 miles.
From Galveston you can supply the
productions of Nebraska to the people
on the shores of the Caribbean sea,
and the coffee and sugar country south,
at a less price than New York can,
because she .will have a larger and
more dangerous sea transportation
than 'ships from the north shore of
the Gulf of Mexico, while you will get
the tropical fruits and other produc
tions -without paying tribute to the
Iowa State roads, the City of Chicago,
and great mart of New York. Your
productions too, will find a good mar
ket in our own cotton and sugar grow
ing region; At Houston in Texas,
four railroads now diverge and two
more I believe, in progress, giving
outlet along the Gulf cast and west.
On the S5th and 32d parallel your
country will find an outlet both at the
head and foot of the Gulf of California
to the Pacific, on roads sure to le soon
made because, first they will pas
through a good country all the way,
and therefore one that will sustain a
road by local trade ; and second, be
cause neither will run above the snow
line and can be used the whole twelve
months for traffic from ocean to ocean.
All these great roads will be cut by
branches, giving you an outlet for
trade not dreamed of by those who
have not reflected properly on the
subject a mine of wealth to your
beautiful State not to be Jost.
To show you that this picture is not
overdrawn, and that you have no time
to loose in the construction of the
Trunk, I will quote from an article
coming from Fort Smith, Ark., fore
shadowing the speedy completion of
this north and south rail communi
cation. The writer says:
"The Lawrence and Galveston rail
road is being pushed northward from
Bryant iu the direction of Preston and
Sherman, on Red river, and southward
in the direction of Fort Gibson, until
it reaches the great Indian nations,
both on the north and south side; .but
no provision or treaty has yet been
made to construct it through the
Indian country. The incorporating
by Congress of a Central Indian Rail
road Company for the purpose of organ
ization to build this road through the
nations is a move in the right direction,
though it is not believed here that all
the nations interested will be willing
to let their funds in the hands of the
Government be appropriated towards
this desirable purpose. The Choctaws,
and most likely the Chickasaws, if it
should pass through a cornor of their
land, would prefer to give land. The
railroad from Sedalia by Springfield
and Neosho will, of course, beextended,
as y ou r G o ve r no r re m a rks an d s u gges t s
to the Lawrence and Galveston Road.
For the interest of St. Louis this road
should run down tlie valley
of the Grand river to the Arkansas,
and down tlie Arkansas untill it reach
es the mouth of the Canadian below
Webber's Falls, and thence down the
Arkansas on the north side and cross
it at Fort Smith, or cross at the mouth
of the Canadian and thence to Fort
Smith, on the South side of the Arkan
sas, it win ie seenuiat mis is almost
in a right line with Galveston. Thence
from here to Preston, the great Pacific
Railroad and the Lawrence and- Gal
veston Railroad would, for a distance
of two hundred miles be one and the
Again. The Icavenworth Commer
cial nearer home, mentions that.
"Stretching away to the Ilocky
Mountains is the Union Pacific Rail
way, Eastern Division, and its branch
es diverging in dilfreent directions, the
Leavenworth, Lawrence and Galves
ton road, Oskaloosa and Topeka, and
the Leavenworth and Atchison road,
the former of which as our readers
know, is already completed, and the
remainder fixed realities only awating
time for. their rapid completion. In
addition to these roads, connection is
afforded with St. Louis by the Missou
ri Pacific, the North Missouri, Hanni
ble and St. Joseph and Platte Valley,
and in a very few weeks by the wes
Branch of the North Missouri road."
But your patience will tire in draw
lug this beautiful picture in your
mind, and I will stop, with the re
mark, that if your State looses the
construction of the trunk road at an
early date, she will lose a brilliant
jewel in her crown, difficult to replace.
All sectional predjudice should be
shut out from the minds of your hon
orable law givers on this important
subject, and aid should be extended
to foster such an enterprise as a State
measure, to guard against paying trib
ute to those to whom tribute is not due.
I am sir your ob't serv't

We learn from undoubted authority
(a member of the legislature) that the
reporU and accounts of the commis
sioners appointed to select the State
lands, and also of the commissioners
to superintend the erection of the Cap

to investigate them projerly, and
therefore appointed committies to in
vestigate the reports, and accounts of
each set of commissioners, with pow

to conduct their investigations during
the legislative vacation.

In tiers ramred one above another to a

water is 200 ot 300 yards wide. About
4K) yards above the main falls nre five
islands, at nearly equal interval acros
the river, dividing the stream into six
parts. As the water passes between
tlie islands it is precipitated 2 or 30
feet. Below the island the water
unites and passes in an unbroken sheet
over the great fall ; the descent is near
2i0 feet. The semi-circle at the heat!
of the falls is apparently perfect, and
the leap as clear as that of Niagnr,
Enormous clouds of mist and spray

the foot are rushing showers of spray,
from under which the water, beaten
into foam, dashes furiously away. Oc

producing a combination not possible
to obtain from a single cataract. At

it can be heard distinctly not contin

When the notes strike in unison they
can be heard at a gre;t distance. In

smoke from a volcanoe. A few dimin
