Mlitrat trealih of Missouri,
tm the ditto lemto oo th 21st ultimo,
SeDiter V, A. ltozisf, chairman of tbe
committee en mines and manufactures,
reported a bill lo provide for the publi
cation of the geological report, aod to
tpfropriate money therefor, lie esti
mate that it will cot (9,000 to publwh
2,000 copies nf Prof. Pumpclly's report
embracing 400 pagos, besides bis act om
psojinir illustrations and plates ; and
that 2,000 copies of Prof. Swallows' (un
published) report, numbering 400 pagef,
and 3U0 more rajti of maps and, itlustra
lions making 4,000 copies io all can I
b published for 812,000. In advocating
an appropriation fur this purpose, cent
tor Roricr aaid : Mr. l'reideu In view
of the fact that the state has already a
propriatcd $2 000 for tb;s purpoto, does
it not strike ccry sunatirbcro that tbe
geological surrey and tlio geological ic
vestigations cf tbe mincfala of our state
require our deepest and profound atten
tion ? For I must reict. that when I
cxaroino the statistics of tbe mineral
fields of the world, I find there is not a
country on the globe like the great state
of Missouri, embracing, as it docs, so
many varieties of minerals in such great
abundance It is an astonishing, but
istrangc fact, very, that in tbe Old World
we find minerals are buried beneath the
ground, while hero in .Missouri, bow dif
ferent the scene presented to the vision
of mortal man. We tea vast regions of
minerals ming from tbe earth and form
ing, as it were, mountains and pyramid,
kisdng tbe rising sun, and brilliantly
glowing in their erystal-likc clusters.
This is not sn exaggerated picture of
tbo history of Missouri in its mineral
position before the world to day. Jf you
but come to the vast iron regions of
Southeast .Missouri, you can behold a
tight such os is seldom vouchsafed to
tbe vision of man ; imtnenso deposits of
iron, lead and zinc ores, mines of cobalt
and nickel, and building material of every
It is truly wonderful to behold the
vast accumulated banks of mineral that
hove been thrown together for the pur
pose of making Missouri a stato unc
fjualfd in wealth and commercial import
ance by any in tho land. Senators, i-liall
we, as a state, for tbo sum of S12 000
refuse to publish to tbe world these
mighty resources of wealth ? I think
not I No senator should hesitate.
Very soon there is to be a grand exhi
bition at Vienna. I refer to this fact
because the state of Missouri to day,
with unanimity in its councils, should sec
to it that these very important reports in
relation to our wonderful mineral re
sources should bo placed before tbo as
sembled peoplo from nil parts of the
world, nnfl should nUo ha placed in every
bciontific university in Europe. By pur
suing this course wc shall publish its
chiracter in every respect, as to wealth
ar.d importance. I see no other way.
I have been born and reared in a coun
try where minerals arc of such an extent
and magnitude that tbey have become an
ordinary scene to me, and the picture I
now draw is one of reality.
Look at tbe vast coal fielda north Cf
tbo Missouri river. By pursuing this
purvey you will pour down into the lap
of St. Louis, thciicu to other ports, Us
vant amount of coals, which is so neces
sary for tho purpose of working up the
iron and mineral ore of Southeast Mis
souri. When wo behold the vast mines liter
ally covering tbe counties of tbe south
west, it becomes a neco.-sity for us to
have a proper knowledge of those mighty
deposits of mineral.
But what is moro astonishing in South
east Missouri, when you throw a Gordon,
as it were, within forty miles of Ste.
(Jcnovicvo we meet iron, zinc, and cobalt,
immense deposits of rose granite and
building material unsurpassed. And
what moro has Providence done for us ?
"You cross the Missie'pi, and there in
Illinois are tho coal fields planted for
tho purpose of manufacturing tbeso beds
and mountains of minerals.
I believe- this nioasuro is one of more
importance to the s'ate than any other
that may come before this houorublo
It is for you, senators, to say to-day
whether you will expend this amount of
money for tbe publication of this report
without a division among you, to the
world, contaiuing an account of tho vaet
and magnificent wcnlth that Missouri
possesses in a mineral point of view.
Tho importenco of the subject has
cctucd to compel mo to dwell thus at
some length on tho bill at this timo. AVc
should call tho attention of tbo capital
ists of tbo North as well as tbo world at
large to theso great trccsurcs of which I
bavo spoken, embosomed within tbo soil
of Missouri and above its surface
With tboso icmnrks I leave tbe matter
in your hands, fooling, as I do, that you
will givo it tbo consideration it demands
in accordanco with tho best and truest
interests of tho wbolo stato of Missouri.
