THE DAILY EVENING TE LEUK A PU I'll I L A D E L PHI A, SATUDRAY, MAI 28, 1870.
CITY IN TEtH IS II C K. THE COAli TRADE. The Klght-honr Tele The Chnrnrterlntlrn mf the Mining Community The NrrnnCcn Hnle A Itamor ef Itmuinpllon Quotations Kir. The result of the vote on the elittit-hour question has not yet been made public. Those who have oeen appointed by the tliilercut Couuoils of the W. h. A. to receive the vote met at Tamaqua on Friday, the SOth liiHlant, but adjourned to meet on June 8, wil rm making the vote known. As far as can be a-tcer-talneil, It is against the iiii-nHiire. Those who work iy the week have voud ami would naturally vote fur it, and ttitmo who work by contract huve voted against It. The former class Include!! the laborers, while the latter embraces a" ut ninety-live per cent, of the miners. The labor of the miners Is dependent upon that of the laborers. la many collieries a miner can cut as much coal In eiptit hours as a laborer can clear out of the sc Mutes and break In ten hours. If the working time of the laborer is shortened the miner will also have to work less, or the breasts will become choked witn coal. Of course in this case the miner who works by con tract, as most of thum do, will prefer not. to have such a measure put luto operation. A veiy Rood view of the private workings of one of the miners' unions can be obtained by rj.ullii a letter to the Scranton it-publican, a portion of wtucU we give below. The picture will apply equally ai web to many other unions, to our certain kuowlucl and not only to miners' unions, but to those of vari ous other trades and haudicralts. The communica tion concerns a strike lu a colliery In (iibsouhurtf. Hie operator had previously, at various times, made concet-Blons to his men, but at last took a Rtand aca'Uht them. The men wished to select tile lust le foreman. Thn present incumbent of that oillce is unpopular, and men refused to do as ordered in ona Instance. In the words of the communication, 'The mult was a strike, a meeting was afterwards held, and they decided not to resume work while Mr. Ureen was boss. A vote was taken on the mat ter to-day, and there was a majority of ilfu a.nust Mr. oreen. so here the mutter rests for the pre sent. 1 believe we have the most, troublesome lot of men anywhere In the valley. Not a week pusses but there Is trouble of some kind. Things of tliu most trivial character will result in a meet ing of the 'Union' and the appoint ment of a committee of Investigation. Their president, John Gardner (when there is a lull lu tlx; stnle), slirs them up to another. He exercises such a control over these men that it matters not ho ridiculous anything is, if he decides in lavor or it they believe hun, and no one can snake their b dlef. s;,i r'g'o is their dlhc pbne thai, the members are not allowed to speak out what they think. Afo-vdiiys ago, when the) hell amoet'ng to take a Jtlon iin timt Mr. urecn, a member veuturet tj say something tu raver of Mr. t;rcen, wueu ho was knocked down by thoT vice president. Another time a miner ex pressed an oplr ion that Gardner was making nnuey out of tutlr 'Union,' and lor this he was lined ten dollars, and was compelled to pay It or stiver per sonal violence. The above may trund absurd, but nevertticlPKS it Is all true." This is the cIiiks of men who nesire the operators to give In to the Ihbhuc demands of tfieir U'dous. To be hure, the t 1b.b are not ail of this character, but those who are lirmest in the striking movement are. A glance at the letters of the miners who wish the strike continued, published lu thiir own organ, and those of more moderate and sensible ideas pub lished elsewhere, will Hhow at once the t:t:il igno rance and blockheadediiess of the former. The let ters of the belter class Bhow some Bigns of reilue incut and intellectual culture, while those of tlio other class abound, for instance, not only in ba 1 but most hideous grammar, such instances as mak ing a verb agree with its subject, which immediately jiii ctdes, in the wrong number, sliowiug In the writer a total want of the first principles of educa tion. Of course, such men ure not the most foresighted, nor Is It the easiest thing In tho world to beat a new idea Into their heads, la souio regions a majority are of the more sensible sort, but this Miaju-ity is ruled by the minority. On the ques tion of going to work the vote is taken by acclama tion, not by ballot, and any one who votes against the wishes of tho interested leaders is a marked man in which case let him beware. This is not too strong at all. Any one who has lived in the coal regions can vouch for the truth of this assertion. The better class of men as a rule do not attend tho union meetings, and it is said tliat iu the Schuylkill region, which Is not the place where they have the "most troublesome set," large numbers of tho best men are leaving the country forever, tota.ly dis gusted with the leaders and unwilling longer to sub mit to their tyranny. The regular Scrauton sale took place in New York on Wednesday last. The prices nave been already published. These show a still further decline over the low rates of the last sale. The following Is tho amount of decline on the various kinds aj compared with the April sale, with the amount of coal sold of each kind: Lump, 1VX cents 10,000 tins. .steamer, 7 " I2,i!i,u " irate, It hi " lo.uoo " Egg, IX " 10,0(10 " Move, 22 " 20,(100 " -'llC8t., 8 " 12,000 " Total amount so,ooo " Tne average decline lu all hizes is 11 5-0 ceuts par ton. f-cmo talk was made of a resumption In the Schuylkill region to take eil'ect June 1, but as far as can be ascertained, it is entirely without foundation. Should no action be taken then, it is not likely that any will be taken until July at leust. At Mauch Chunk there were transported over both railroad and canal, during the pa:tt week, 119,379 tons, against 113.4S0 the previous week, a gain of tb'ii tons. The following are the prices of coal by the cargo at Port liichmond for shipment east of liordentown and south of Cape Henry to oilier points 40 cents per ton is to be added: Schuylkill Jted Ash, t P45.$ 4-60; do.

From Bultimore: Philadelphia, 81$ THE ASSEMBLY. Vo Hetmlon To.lny ExriiraloriH to Cape May and Princeton College. The commissioners to the Assembly of the Re united Presbyterian Church, now sitting in this city, have ha: no reason to complain of monotony during their stay among us. The Committee of Arrange ments have been unceasing in their endeavors to find amusement and pleasure for their guests during the hours that have intervened between the ses sions, invitations have been extended to visit all the prominent institutions in the city, and in many insisnet s our more wealthy residents have thrown open the doors of their private art galleries, etc. The delrgates have not been able to visit a!l these places, and yet the invitations still come flow ing in. During the week Messrs. Ashbel Welsh. Charles Wacalesier, and A. w. Markley, representing the w est. jersey iianroau company, invited the Asseui lly to take a tiip to Capo Mav, the popular seaside itsort, audou inotioD it was accepted, and thanks were returned to the above-named gentlemen.

The journals continue their comments this morn ing on the attempted invasion of Canada by the Fe nians. " The Post admits that the Washington Government has done all that can be reasonably required of it. The Haunlay Hevian scouts the idea expressed in some quarters that the Washington authorities are iu connivance with this Fenian raid. The Time thinks ihe Fentau attempt will not be absolutely regretted if it will only prompt the United States to such action as Bhall prevent a repetition of such outrages. 'I lie sprctatur says the action or the Fenians is due to their hereditary passion, ami the policy of Eng land due to her hereditary lnsoleu.ee and contempt. Other journals have articles similar in tone. The good faith of the American authorities is generally admitted, and the attempts of the Fenians ridiculed. The Siniilli Cortex. Madiup, May 2S. Last evening a caucus of the country Deputies In the Constituent Cortez was held iu this city, to decide what action was desirable to take relative to the selection of a future ru'er for Spain.

Mr. Milliner Bnid the suDject wan now under considera tion by the.lurliciury Ccuimitteo, to which he asked tua rtlereuce of t.he papers. It was so reterrod. At 1215 o'clock Air. Chnndlnr proceeded to address thn Senate upon tho resolution recontiy introduce! by him tor refcliTirg our foreign comm rce to Aiuerioan vessels. Ho said our domestic und coustwiso oommeroe w.is never in a more favorable conuition than now, but our tliR had been driven from lorcittn tratro. Tue miHstion was hor best to restore our former prestige iu that tratlio. Here furred to the gradual substitution ot tteain propellers for Auieiiean wooden flops, by which iron bud taken the p'uee ot wood ana steam tne place ot wind. You could not to-day even sen t a letter across the oce in nnoer the Anixrican t!;i. Tiie coastwise and inland tr ide was a strict Aniericun monopoly. We allowed no for- eit!U ship to touch a single pound or fretuht, but the lor eixn tratho whs opon una tree to tne world, and was awarded to who could do it cheapest and quickest. The commerce of the lakes was alike depressed in conseqimr oo ot this revolution in the carrying trade, mainly causa l by railroud competition. Hut the great question was aj to tho best means of ucain a. qtiirinrf our position as one of the chief curriers ot the world. Tee idea that a remedy was to be found in shinbuildintt was not lenaldo. You mitfht build ten thousand ships, nut it yon cannot Duwd tiiein prontauiy you nave no com merce. If tlit y lose $5 a trip they will not ruu. We miuht, by au abrogation of ull trtatios, impose diilerential duly between our own and all other Hhi;.i, but this would yield no practical benefit, because o:her nation miirht phS8 retaliatory laws. In record to drawbacks In look isue as to the s Kindness of the proposition of universal drawbacks in Mr. Lynch's bill. In view of the necessity for protection ot our foreign commerce, wnilo tne uoinest to reouircd no protection, he would favor a drawback e.iu tl to the amount of duty on imported materials to be usod in the construction of irou vessels intended tor foreign tri flic. He then referred to the advantages enioted lr the Fnj.-lit.il over Americao ship builders in the diti'erence ol wages ot labor, nd repltod to a suggestion ly Mr. Mur man as to wheib.fr by the substitution of machinery for labor IhUditTeieuce could be overcome. He taoucht the result would be the reverse, that the te'lyde builders, alter thirty reais experience in building aud itnorovinir upon repeated faimes, had accumulated in their yards cvrry piece of machinery known to the inventive ingenuity ot tne ige ana as soon as we discovered a now principle in machinery, they aiiprojn iatod und applied it before we knewit. He bad found in Knglish ship yards evcryspeciosof material used in vesst-i iimiuing manuiactured in yard, excepting only iron and coal, which in the yr I he visit 1 was brought irom a p'ace only seven miles dist int. Hi then showed tbe nitterence in tne cost of const met imr. A three thousnnojie n iron ship, costing in tbiscountry from six to eight hundred tliou-iun j dollars, could be built in Kngland for from t'l'W.cij to -tc'i,uou. An in stance of economy of irou ovnr wood vessels was shown in tact mat one tliree thousand ton iron propeller coald carry as much freight as nine sailing vossols of a tUou ian i tons each. Mr. Chandler dibensscd at length the disadvantages of th I nitod iSiatPb in attempting to compete at onoe with lo-iign nations in t he carrying trade. The question wis wht tner it was better to nurmit for a limited period the build ngoi a few steamships that could aud would even tually compete witb foreign sbips, or whether sabsidiol should be paid.
