The Price of Coal.
The Stroudsburg Jeffersouian of last
week oomplains of the high price of coal
at that place, which, it alleges, sells, at
the Stroudsburg Depot for $9 per tou for
Chesnut coal, audSD. 70 for Stove. The
papers of the large cities, are also loud in
their complaints, because of prices which
are proportionately higher, even, than at
Stroudsburg. "We think both complaints
have justice in them, and that there should
be some means by winch an evil so griev
ous could be redressed. There is no
earthly reason for these high prices, save
that which exists in the greed of llail
road companies aud speculators to swell
their dividends beyond all reason ; and it
is an outrage that, because of their rapa
city, consumers of coal all over tiie coun
try should be literally robbed, that the
profits ou the employment of capital may
grow to a most marvelous figure. As
much as an' one we desire to see this
sectiou of country prosperous, and our
companies, by which it has been, in a
great measure, built up, flourishing; but
it is not necessary that the whole outside
country should be swindled to secure this,
nor is it just that our companies should
be managed solely with a 'view to
their own aggraiidizemeut. lu the seek
ing of corporate privileges v from our Lc
gislature the view is always placed upper
most, that the public would be benefitted
by their granting; and it should be an
unalterable rule in their conduct, that the
interests of that public should not be
swamped in an inordinate scramble to
line the pockets of the stockholders with
'greenbacks." But the reverse is really
the case; and the securing of the Wil
ling ty dollar" has become far more of an
object, than the accomplishment of any
good to ousiders. The question is not
one of general utility, but one, altogether,
of special profit.
A reasonable profit on the capital in
vested no one could or would object to.
Indeed it had long ago become a settled
thing, that it was reasonable to grant a
profit to corporations which, in the ordi
nary business transactions, would be con
sidored unseasonable ; but when that pro
fit amounts to an absolute robbery ; when
the principle which secures it is the same
which secures for him who demands
"your purse or your life," a speedy yield
ing up of your valuables, it becomes a
crying evil, and one which the law should

Take the prices of coal at Stroudsbur
as an example ol the evil which this r
venous greed of companies can and doe
inflict. The average price, per ton, charg
ed the people ol that locality, by the rai
road company, which has the monopoly
of t lie market, is $9,35. The cost of the
coal to the company, on the cars, on the
track and ready for transportotion is $1
85 per tou. The price charged for trans
portation by the compan',

run ou its own account, to Stroudsburg, on
the hrst lot run bv individuals, was $1,95
per ton. This was considered, at the time
by the company, a full equivalent for the
service rendered, and makes the cost of coa

It was a cause of sad complaining on

By way of Barbadoes we have news o

A Large Boiler Thrown Twelve
A Manufacturing Establishment Com
In the small settlement known as Bla-zin"-
Star, about five miles from Railway,
N J., the boiler of Johu A. Steinhauser's

the building, a frame 100 feet square, was
entirely wrecked, and the tabular boiler

400 yards from the place, and 100 feet
high, when it struck the earth, throwing
up the dirt to a great bight, aud then re

The names of the killed were A. F.
Beyse, Superintendent, a resident of the
vicniity; J Master, boiler-maker of this
city, and J. Broush, of Williamsburgh.

his body, and Broush's skull was crushed

The accideut is ascribed to the defec

this city. Mr. Beyse had no idea of the
quantity of steam in the boiler (and he
was an experienced engineer, having
been in one of our gunboats, aud on the
Otsego at the time of her destruction by
a torpedo) aud therefore anticipated no
danger, supposing the guage would indi
cate the pressure upon the boiler.
All of the killed were men of family
and their remains were promptly cared
for by Mr. Steinhauser, and iots purchas
ed for their interment iu Greenwood
Cemetery. He has also gonerouslyoffcr

A strange circumstance connected witl
the casuality is that Beyse seemed to hate
a prcmouition of his fate. When he was
in New-York last Monday with Steinhau
ser, he said he felt a strong disposition to
have his life insured, and returning home
asked his wife where she woula have him
buried in the event of his being killed
saying he felt as if something were about
to happen to him.
The boiler had 163 tubes, which were
thrown 100 feet apart, aud this fact, with
the tremendous force of the explosion
indicates that there must have been at
