Mr. Laughrey, of Jefferson township, in digging a well, last week, at the depth of fifty feet below the surfiice struck what appeared to be a drift or deposit of soil contaiuing largo quantities of vegetable matter and partially decayed wood. Among the pieces of wood taken out was a board one inch in thickness, eix inchea in width and eighteen inches in length. The board is tongued and grooved, and in evpry particular resembles a piece of modern flooring. The land upon which the well is dug is a high prairie, and no improvements had ever before been made upon it, to the certain knowledge of old settlers in the vieinity. Now, how did that piece of man's unmistakable handiwork get there ? Is it a relie of the Mound-buĆ¼ders, or some pre-historic race ? - lAneville (foiva) Tribune.
