1 By this statement it appears that the Penn
sylvania Coal Trade has increased at more
than 100 per cent, in each five years! ' Sup
posing 4 busnel of coal to be 80 pounds.
which is the legal weight, we find that the
Pennsylvania production of 1851 was ens
hundred and ten millions of bushels. -" ?
The marketable production of Coal in
Ohio may be determined approximately by
the last report of the Board of Public Works .
The principal points dfCoai Mining in Ohio
are at Ta'madge Summit county;' Pomeroy
Meigs County; Nelson ville Athens county J
and some points ;n Stark, and.Coshocion
counties. 'The amount brought 10 market
from these several poinu in 1850-1 was as
follows, viz: ' ; '
From Akron, Summit county, 3,062,880 bush.
Do . Masstlon, Stark county, . 180.893 do ,
JJover, 69,050 do
Roscos, Coshocton county,' 360,266 - do
Nelsonville Athens county, 930,160 ' do
Do . Pomeroy, Meigs co., about 2,000,000 do
Total . . 6,489,299 do
This is but a sixteenth part of the coal
brought to market in Eastern Pennsylvania;
yet it is a large amount, and a large increase
on the production a few years since. It is
about the production of Pennsylvania fifteen
years ao. ..May not , the increase of the
Coal TraJe.in Ohio.be nearly as rapid as
that tn Pennsylvania! If so, what a 1 im
mense eff-ct ii will have on the business of
the state, and especially on Cincinnati 1
The great difficulty with our coal mines is
that we have so very little capital applicable
to that business. The opening of the Pom
eroy mines has been of great utility to ibis
city; but it" has been accomplished only by
the uncomon energy, perseverance intelli
gence of the spirited proprietors Time
and labof were the substitutes for capital.
The mines' of ' Tnlmadge have 'also been
ii:any years', in arriving at important results.
Notwithstanding the' unpromising effects of
the Tariff on the inanulaciure ol Iron, there
la a wide and profitable field for the employ
ment of capital in Ohio, in developing its
mineral resources. - u -1 .
' The-consuption of coal, in the interior
towns, is increasing. . The consumption of
some of these Is known, by ihe receipts from
the cauufs.1 We have the following, viz:
Chillicothe, ' '
' 183,139 '
' ' 93,839
.' 63,840 '
. 9'd77 ,
Tliese are Comparatively small quatititie 1
but the increase (50 per cent.) In, one year,
is. quite, remsrkak-le, and. proves, . what we
have said, that as wood rises in price,, the
consumption of coal rapidly incre,aits.
Within a few years past coal has been ex
tensively substituted (or wood io steamboats.'
This has largely increased the consumption
on the rivers.- We have seen a steamboat
on the MississippY take poor coal on board
at 30 certs pef bushel f It is obvious that
coat will be entirely used In.Bioaniboait; and
it la equally obvious that coal must bo almost
the only motive power'of machinery. The
numerous' railroads Will soon facilitate the
introduction" of" coat Into -numerous towns
now inaccessible to the coal trade. A!1 ,uese
