From tbe Memphis j4rafoncA, Jaauary
9 : The amount ot coal brought out
from Pittsburg during the 24 hours ot
tbe late rise was 8,344,224 bushels. The
bushel being 70 pounds, this would be
317,081 net tons, requiring a fleet of 61
steamers or towboats, 201 coal boats and
338 coal barges. On the basis of 100,000
bushels to I lie acre of mine sur
face, there would be 8HJ acres
of coal, and tbe boats and barges would
cover an area ot 45 acres, so that each
steamer would tow on an average- about
an acre of boats and two acres ot co :1 as
measured In tbe vein. Tbe towing is not
by line, with tbe boats following after the
motor, as the term would seem to Imply.
With a tow of say twelve boats or barges,
one would be lashed to each side, while
ten would be placed In front, A ve long
and two wide, each barge being about
130x224 feet. This mass of boats is firm
ly lashed together, the steam towboat In
tbe rear, and the flotilla is propelled
ahead of it. This system ot towing be
gan in 1830. Before this time all the
coal was floated down the river In large
bottomed boats, propelled by nuiscle and
tide. Each boat con'ained 15,000 bush
els, and were "run" to tbelr destination
