Side 10 - Pormian in the Paleozoic; but I think the old classification a better one; and more, I think the term Permian, at least as given by Murchison for the strata of the government of Perm, a very improper one. There are strong suspicions that Murchison has put in his Permian of Russia a part, if not the whole, of the Trias; and I am...
Side 5 - Descriptions of new organic remains collected in Nebraska Territory in the year 1857, by Dr. FV Hayden, geologist to the exploring expedition under the command of Lieut. GK Warren, Top. Engr. US Army, together with some remarks on the geology of the Black Hills and portions of the surrounding country.
Side 8 - Explanations of a Second Edition of a Geological Map of Nebraska and Kansas, based upon Information obtained in an Expedition to the Black Hills, under the Command of Lieut. GK Warren.

Our object being! « simply to announce our conclusions derived from the study! «of fossils collected from these rocks in the West, we did! « not refer to their supposed prior discovery in Pennsylvania and! « on the Atlantic coast, nor were we able to judge of the evi-t «dence of their existence in those localities, it being based,!
Side 5 - By these remarks we do not wish — to withhold from « Mr. Marcou the credit justly due him for having first suggested the existence of Jurassic rocks in this region...
Side 5 - Shumard at Fort Washita , Texas, where they «appear to hold the same geological position, and are asso« ciated with Ammonites vespertinus Morton.
