Fortunes Lost in Cornwall.
Every tourist in Cornwall is familiar
with the deserted engine houses and ruin
ous chimney stacks which form so char
acteristic a feature of the scenery of the
Western mining districts. They have
their picturesque aspect, but they are
the evidences of wide-spread ruin. To
thousands of families they have been, in
the phrase applied to ,an unprofitable
speculation by Carlyle: " The grave of
the last sixpence." They stand there by
scores and by hundreds, dilapitated,
stripped of every morsel of wood or
metalth at would sell, towedring over wide
wastes of rubbish-heaps, their high
sounding names forgotten. Millions
drawn from the wealth and the poverty
of outside investors have within the past
thirty years been buried in the bowels of
the Cornish hills, or have found their
way into the pockets of some wily pro
jectors. It is not twenty years smnce a
shrewd Cornishman made large profits
b~y disposing of shares in a mine with a
high-Bounding name, near his native vil
lageo; upon inquiry the magnificent mine
p roved to be merely a pit some score feet
deep, with a windlass and a bucket I
This gentleman was indeed rather too
clever, for he speedily found himself in
jail, but after no ver long time he was
let loose again upon hsprey. How many
aliases he has had since then, or into
how many mnine-broking firms he has
developed, probably no one but himself
knows, but more t'han one well-puffed
mine of the present mining revival is
kviown to have owed its origin to his
energies. It may be quite true that, on
a capital of ?1,000, Devon Great Con
sols made in its earlier years more than
a million profit ; that South Caradoxi
gave its wealth on even easier terms ;
that Tfreavean paid ?60,000 dividends
in one year. But let us look a little fur
ther into the results, and we shall dis
cover that the families that have realized
wealth by mining, and not from the
dues they have received a lords of min
ing property, are few and far between.
Often withmn the life-time of the Indi
vidual, frequently in the next generation,
miniug has taken what mining gave.
The greatest mining fortune of the last
two or three generations was that which

was considerable trade in coal, and In'
1880 the productioil of ooal in Gr6at
Britaiti was 184,008,288 tons.
The United 8tteA, with a oal asea of
192,000 square miles, produced 66,200,
934 tons of coal in 1880, while Great
Britain, with a coal area of 11,900 square
miles, produced 184,000,060 tons, and
Germany, with an ausa of only 1,770
square miles, produced 46,953,002 tons.
In the same year - Franoe produced
17,104,485 tons; Belgium, 15,446,581
tons ; Austria, 15,447,292 tons; Ansaia,
2,588,604- tons; Samn, 775,000~ tons;

China, 4,000,000 tons.
Increase in the production of. poal in
England has not been rapid. But in
countries like the United States, Russia
and Australia, the growth in business is
astonishing. Ten years ago Russia
mined only 829,745 tons of coal, and in
1829 Australia produced only 780 tons.
In 1858, the output of the whole German
empire was 4,883 585 tons of conl, and
1,417,420 tons of lignite. In the United
States the production has been more
than doubled in the last ten years. The

It will be seen by this table that while
the older of the coal-producing States,
like Pennsylvania, Oio and Illinois,
have about doubled their output, the
newer States like Iowa, Kansas and Ne
braska have increased their production
.ten and twenty fold.
The consumption of coal at Pittsburgh
for 1880 is about 2,000,000 bushels;
New York, 5,250,000. The receipts of
coal at Chicago were 2,886,748 tons; St.
Louis, 1,675,000 tons; New Orleans,
3,187,400 tons; Cincinnati, 1,787,230
tons ; Cleveland, 1,750,000 tons.
The United States sltand1s niext to
Great Britain as a coal-producing coun..

18,702,551 tons last year, the United
States exported 614,000 tons, more than
half of this going to Canada.

"It was only a short time, however,
wh'len ai message came that the President
wished to see me atL the engine house.
I went. There was no( olie but the Pres

undertaker. Mr. Lincoln was walking
up and dlowni the floor, very much ag1
tated. ~rle was wringing his hands, and
there was, I thought, the trace of tears
upon01 his check. He did not appear to
niotice my enJtrance at first. Liftmng the
cloth f 011 the face of the diend man he
'eitrimned, with a depth of pathos I shall

hate the whole occurrence in detail. I
had searrcely finishied bef-o Mrs. Lin
coin earne, and I was agamir asked to re

T'he following letter from Mr. Lincoln
