SURVEYS OF THE PUBLIC LANDS. The uniform mode in which the Public Lands are surveyed conduces in the greatest possible degree to compactness of settlement. This method is rectangular.

The greatest division of land is called a township, containing the quantity of 23,040 acres. The township is six miles square, and is subdivided into thirty-six equal divisions, or square miles, by lines crossing each other at right angles, called sections. The section contains 640 acres, and is subdivided into four parts, called quarler sections. The quarter section is divided into two equal parts each called half-quarter seclions, which last, previous to the act of the 5th April, 1832, was the last regular subdivision; that act, however, admits of another, under certain circumstances, which is, by running an east and west line through the balf-quarter sections to divide them into quarter-quarter sections.
