We have heretofore, on one or two occa- sions, urged the importance of providing by law far a Geological suryey of the State.— The reasons that reader such a survey expe- dient and necessary are too obvious to re quire special mention.

Ex- tensive and valuable deposits of coal abound ia several counties West of this, cropping oat qo the surface at several places fn Young and wise counties. Immense fields of Gyp- sum aie found in that fine region of coan try, from Clear Fork of Brases to the Wichita Mountains, and there is scarcely a doubt that rich mines of gold and silver will .be found in these mountains. Gald is known to exist high up on the Colorado. We have recently seen iron ore in its virgin state iu .the Keecht mountains and on the hills ...
