Sec. 1. Showing the series of sandstones and slates with the coal seams at the Gulf.
Sec. 2. The same section prolonged north-west, showing the relations and position of the veins of iron ore in the Taconic series, together with the position of the brecciated conglomerates. S. I., specular iron. H. I., hæmatitic iron at ore knob. Con., conglomerate. T. S., Taconic slates.
Sec. 3, extends across the coal series at Murchisons, Moore county. F. C., fire clay.
Sec. 4, extends across the coal series at Evander McIver's. The Salines consist of drab colored sandstanes, which, in dry weather, are coated with salt. The Breccia marks the boundary here between the Keuper sandstone and the coal measures, though the term breccia would be more properly replaced by the term conglomerate.
