Wc linvo received from .1. Neoly Johnson,
the United States Land Register of this dis
trict, tho following importantoommunicntion,
which explains itself :
DkI'AIITMBNT OI' THE LVTEKIOR, ?
Gr.vnnAi, Laxd Oi'pici:, June 2, 1808.
Register and Receiver, United States liud
Oliice, Sacramento, California Gentlemen:
In reply to the Receiver's letter of the 1th of
April, you are instructed as follows:
Tho tenth section of tho Mining Act of
July 26, 1800, tiruvidttt for homesteads made
jnior to the passage of the Act, by citizens
of the United States or persons who had do
ctored their intention to become citizens, un-
on hinds previously loserved as mineral, and
as auch excluded from surrey ami sate, but !
which are properly agricultural, no valuable
mines oi goto, silver, cinnabar or copper hav
ing been discovered thereon, and which havo
been improved and used by settlers fw agri
These settlers have a right of pre-emption
to such lands, not exceeding ICO acres, and
may pwcbie at the minimum of SI. 25 jier
acre, or enter them tinder the homestead law,
aftr they become surveyed, upon the usual
awl jHoper proceedings in soch casos.
If the Deputy Surveyor returns it as agri
cultural und you have rto data to the contrary,
ami no one files an affidavit of iu being more
valuable for mineral than for agricultural pur
poses, the setter will he allowed to enter It
under thejirortfions of the said 10th Miction.
If an affidavit is filed alleging the land to
be mineral, a trial mot he had to determine
whether it is more valuable for mining jmr
poees than for agricultural purposes. In such
can-s you will set a day for the hearing, giv
inc to the claimant and the rty filing the
affidavit sufficient notice to enable them to lie
prw-wt iih their wiiHf; and when the
tract Itas been occupied fw agricultural pur
poses, and imtiroved as soch liefore July 26,
1666, the burden of proof will he upon the
party seeking to establish ita mineral char
actar, and the testimony should he of a na
ture dearly to prore the tiutu of soh ah
gatiow, before you deride toe right of the
MrttUr to enter the land.
Should the Deputy Surrey or return the
kind as mineral you will require the settler to
furnish you sati4actory jtroof of the error of
such return before permitting him te enter
the Rewfees cttinmby him under said 10th
The return of a Deputy Surveyor, although
ontitled to rcanect as coming from a strorn
ofttoar, h not to be taken as eonelHsive in
these cam, when dfepttted, but the matter
most be investigated by the examination of
witnesses, c;aW from experiance and obser
vation, ami from previous examination, to
testify underfiUndingly in reference to the
existence of minerals ujkmi any rwrtimlar
tract, and whether tke depeMt isof sufficient
oxtont to render it more valuable for raining
than for agrktilmre.
When lands of the character contemplated
by W 10th taction have not yet been filed
upon, yon should satify yourself as to which
eh? they lralong beAms taking steps in refer
ence to their disjyjsal.
The 1 1th srrtion of the Mining Art author
ise the Secretary of the Interior. . after the
nrrey uf lands pret ionsly reserved as mineral,
to designate sad fet apart Hich portions of
them a are rieariy agritjltural, which are
nade shjert to ro-etnntion and sale, as oth
er public lands of the United bUtes.
To give etTect to this section the SorTeyors
General ia the mining States and Territories
have been instruct oil to require their depu
ties in the ilehl to keep notes, and designate
on towns! lip plate such lands as arc "agricul
tural.'1 After the flling of the plats in your
office, If no counter affidavits arc presented,
the tracts designated "agricultural lands
may be Hied upon under th pre-emption or
bomostesd laws; bnt prc-cmntors must not
be permitted to jrove up and entt-r until after
such a period of actual settiemant nd culti
vation as shall show good faith, sav not less
than six months from the date of settlement
embraced in the Ming of the declaratory
statement ; and if lforc the expiration of
sucn lime an auniavu is tliexl alleging the
mineral character of the particular traet
claimed, a trial must lie had before any entry
s ma ue, to determine mat question.
It is not doubted that in ovory township
there arc tracts of land more valuable for
farnu and gardens tiian for mining wrpoes,
and the object of the law is to segregate these
from mineral and dispose of them as a'gricHl-
Errors of judgment may sometimes occur,
but as a general rule ?t is believed a careful
examination will onablc claimants to act with
safety in reference to these lands; and al
though they may be jwt to tho necessity of
proving their chief value to be for puqoes of
agriculture, by an opposing affidavit filed at
any time before ontry, yet where reasonable
precaution has been exercised such proof will
seldom fail, at tt as tho whole tract filed
uiMMi ; and if a jwofltablo mine were to Ims
discovered upon a part of the premiies, it
would only enhance tho value of the remain
Affidavits allcginc particular lands to be
more valuable as mineral than arable, must
apply to each of the smallest local subdivis
ions. Of a quartor section, 120 acres maybe
niinoral and the runminiug 40 anilile, and the
minora! character of tho lonnor is no 'reason
why tho latter should not be entered as agri
cultural. Nor is it sufficient that such affi
davits aro based upon opinion or belief. They
must contain a statement of facts within tho
knowledge of depononts, derived from actual
observation or examination, furnishing a
6trong presumption that the particular subdi
vision is niinoral land, and moro valuable as
such than as agricultural. More speculation,
based upon no positive knowledge, and dis
closing no material facts, should not bo re
ceived, and claimants ought not to be put to
the trouUs and nxjinnso of minting nflldsvits
of this character. There should Sxj the ut
most good faith required from both sides.
I-mds more valuable for mineral than for oth
er purposes are net to be taken under tho
pre emption or homestead laws; nor, on the
other hand, are parties to be intimidated
from making settlements upon and ultimately
entering under these laws lands as are most
valuable for agricwltural purposes, simply be
cause valuable mineral lands may lie in tho
immediate vicinity. Roth classes of lands
are to lie disjioscd of under those appropriate
laws, and neither interest it to lie subordin
ated Uj the other, to the detriment of the
If the Register and Receiver have reason
to halinVit that, tnilmnal alHilarit am lufnr
placed on timber land on whleh no mineral
has been found, for the jiurposo of keeping
the same from settlement until after the tim
ber has been removed, they will inform tho
Mrties flling such papers that aflblnvite in
which it is not alleged thatoither gold, silver,
cinnabar or copper, have been found are in
irjsuftlctent. And lion over specific and foil
such affidavit may lie, they arc not to bo
deeemed conclusive as to tho matters alleged.
Any settler filing an affidavit of a contrary
character, aud desiring to enter the particular
tract as agricultural land, is entitled to havo
tbc question examined and on proring It to
ho moro valuable an arable than as imnoraL
may file upon it under the pre-emption, or
enter it under the. Homestead law, and in duo
time consumate the title.
1 1 matters not whether the precious metals
are found in quartz ledges or in placer or in
hydraulic mines, if the particular subdivisions
of the public lands containing them, are moro
varaalde for mining than for agriculture, they
cannot he entered under the pre-emption or
homestead law. If placers ence valuable have
become exhausted an as no longer tu be vtl
uahle as mines, the Und may then be entered
as arable. These affidavits arc to be filed
with the Register, and cojiies transmitted t
tiii office. Ihey are to be registered and
carefully filed, but need not be recorded.
In reference to the fees suthorised in pre
emption and homestead caest ami for prov
ing up tne name, you are reterred to the legal
proviftMms and instructions communicirtodtn

KrmiMff 'et, good Republican authority,
says: "Wc have now an unintelligible jum

inallr bad, it has been patched up at each

improvement in its principle has become a
new difficulty in its administration, by intro
ducing confusion and inconsistency into die
system. The Interpretations of it by the de
cssrons and instructions of the commissioners
hare iwcn vacillating: vcrv ranch of -it is
deemed by lawyer to lie unsound; and it is
quite doubtful what jwrtions of it have been
onset tied by rulings or various courts. And
the administration of the whole is corrupt
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, so that spies
and thieves, the waste of collection and tho
needless burden of commlstionfi and profits,
incrva-iiig the iivvoisiry bnrden of the taxct,
take from the people together twice the mon
