Having heard that a shaft was being sunk by Mr. Newman on the property of Mr. Degraves, at the Cascades, with the view of finding coal, I seized the first opportunity of visiting the spot, in the hope that the debris of the shaft would be a safe clue to the actual age of the sandstone of that locality,—and which I believe to be a continuation of the sandstone of this city.
