Speaking of mobile apps, two of my favorite mobile apps for exploring the southwest are two different mapping apps one that builds your schedule and the other helps me look to see if my rural destination is taking me to private or public lands. Highly recommend both!

We learn from Charles Hoppin. who left Willow Creek Sunday morning, that a company of cavalry, supposed to be Captain Wagner’s, were seen at Sod House on the Bartlett Creek road, and are supposed to have reached McDermit Sunday. Egan’s commander, two companies of the Fourth artillery, are now guarding the stage road north of McDermit. and Captain Well’s company of the Fifth infantry, which left here last Friday, marched to McDermit in three days. Two more companies of the Fourth artillery, marching as infantry, under command of Colonel Miller, and Captain Hasbrouck’s Battery, mounted, will arrive here from San Francisio next Wednesday.

In the next place on our road, end is situated on Quin River. This place is run by Matt Danglemire, and also has good accommodations. Mr. Danglemire has found a vein of coal in this locality, which has the appearance of being as good as the Rocky Mountain coal. The vein is small at present, but with a little development it may widen out to a large holy of this valuable mineral. It is quite a curiosity, as coal is very scarce in Nevada, and if found near the railroad would be worth more than all the gold mines in the country. As we journey on down Quin River we pass a good many ranches, and all have good crops. This is a fine country for the stockman.
