The attention of , Eastern cap italists has, fot the past few years, been steadily directed to the min ing industry, which sprung up like a meteor iu the Kooky Mountains and the far West. More interest was manifested on on account of the disastrous fail ures in mercantile pursuits from (ho year 1876 until perhaps up to the repeal of the Bankrupt law and the year following. Many who are ever ready to pick a flaw in legitimate mining pursuits, and make the wild expression that there is more money sunk in this enterprise than taken out, will do well to peruse the following statements of mercantile disaster: In the year 1332 there were over 4,000 failures. Thu liabili ties of those failures were over Sl.O.CCO.OOO. In 1873 there were over 5,000 failures, whose liabilities reached over $220,000,000. In 1S74 there weie nearly C.000 fiiilures, whose liabilities reached over $150,000,000. ' In 1S75 there were 7,500 failures, whose liabiliiies reached ovei $190,000,000. The failures in the above men tioned years in the United States will reach in the aggregate 30, 000 ;u liumlpr, and the liabilities upwards of SS00, 00,000. Capital is a sensitive element and in this w ide-.-prcad ruia ii mturally sought new and more profitable Holds. The question lies, not ii the greatest number who may have derived a benefit from mining but in the teturn for capital in vested. Within the past seven years more gold and silver has ken taken from tho mining fields of the far West than from ne mines of any other country in .he world in a like time, and ihere is no country in the world chut contains the number of rich and paying mines, or the same prospective fie-i'is that the United States presents at this time. In one statement furnished by She department at Washington it is staled that the United States furnished $70,000,000 annually from her mines, and during the last few years over twice that tmount. Nevada alone furnished from her mines in 1876 neatly 50,000,- 000. For the past two years the yield is steadiiy going on with a rapid increase From Maine to California, all along the lines there ate scenes of new strikes and new mining fields, where mineral was not hitherto known to exist. The completion of railway enterprises. the cheapening of transportation, together with mora improved processes in the abstraction of the precious metals will make the ii. crease iu the future advance with the most rapid strides. Ores ihht few years aao could not lie touched can now be re din ed at a profit, and I ho im provement in the process is not by any means yet complete, and if it ever approaches that state we may look lor a revolution in min ing far exceeding .my thing which has ever yet occutred in any en. terprise. '1 he rich mining regions of the West are no chimera but a fact which cannot bo disputed. The hundreds of millions already taken out, both fr carrying on of commerce and expoitaiioi dem onstrates iliis. The remooitizatiou of silver has given a new impetus to tho mill ing industry. Nature has placed these immense veins :ad deposits of ore within mir reach, and they who say they should not bo used in the pursuit of national happi ness and prosperity ure but 111 advised counselors. There are mines today of which we have but a traditionary record, which were worked witli a profit, although a depth below alevt-l of the sea has long since been reached. I he liabilities of failures, divid ed among the various commercial enterprises of our merchants, lias reached fur four years, ending 1S77, ovir $000,000,000. During that time there was not over $15,009,000 invested in mining pursuit. Take into considera tion the losses accruing from mis management, poor machinery, or ;vorthtess processes, together with money sunk in worthless pros pects, and the above amount can be greatly reduced. The product from the mines in thos same years averaged $70,000,000 a year Yet we are told there are Hiore dollars put i.1 than are taken out of mines. Taking into consideration the lax manner in which many min ing companies conduct their oper ations, we feel safe in stating that no industry could succeed under such a management except a solid one like that of mining. The most promising pursuit to day, if put in the same perfuncto ry hands which we see oftimis conducting mining, could not stand. To insure success ' in mines and mining, vou must first have the vein or mine; then the government of affairs mutt nec essarily tie put in r 'ones', skillful and economical hands, and when this ia done it is safe to say thai no enterprise will remunerate the investor iike that of mining. C. M. Dalv. uoh.a Duff's Peculiar Experience Mr. John Duff is assistant cash ier in the Adams express office on Chestnut street, below Seventh. He died the other day, but was not aware of the circumstance until waking into the office, he heard a friend of the eentleni tn next below him In rank there 'congratulating his colaborer unon the probability of his promotion. The visitor was exceedingly sur piised when ho saw Duff, and mumbling something which no body could understand, backed out of the office, while several of Duff's companions gathered aiouud him and told him that for a dead man he was rather spry, addiiig that perhaps this was accounted for by the suddenness of his death, and that he had not yet learned ho. v to properly ccn duct himself as a corpse. Duff said that he was not dead, but they brought him that morning's Ledger, and there was the an nouncement as pbiin us could be, and, with such indisputable evi dence, of course Duff h:-d to give it up, and he went over into corner b himstlf to think about if, and tty to unravel the mystery as to why death &hould take him in this unaccountable fashion. He passed a miserable day of it. A-.i sorts of fe.iows came in and to d him how very sorry they were he was dead, and hoped lie didu'j find the weather too warm, ec, etc. Duff made up his mind he was uead, but as he didn't feel so he stuck to his work and went ! home at the usual hour, lie was loot staifhd iu the least when lie saw Ihe crape on the door. That was as it a'aould be. lie went 'iulotlia parlor and looked over ! the flowers which had been sent i for his funeral wreaths, doves and pillows. The dove was u little siiaky on its pi.is, and f r 'ge.tiug his condition for the mo j meat, he made up bis mind to drop in on the floiist and have him send another bird. The undertaker was there and told Duff that when he was ready the country to flud a summer lo- they would goon with the prep- cation for his family telegraphed arations, and reminded Mm that' hU wlfe. ' .-Iloine to.uig,lt. in summer it was not well tojThe reridt?rt.d lnla iuto keep bodies too long. Duff agreed i , . .. . ... , , , . "Come to night," and so the.wife t everything until he found outj " that the coffin was only walnut. ! posted into the country at once. "i'il be Mowed!" say Duff, "if, I go In the procession unless I h ivo rose wood box. I can afford it, and that's what I want.'' The undertaker replieel that there was I house in the city from his travel no time now for a chunge, and J ing rgent, who had reached Pnil- t-iel to convince Duff that the walnut coffin was fully as com fortable as any could be, and added that he "didn't see what difference it made anyhow." Then Duff got angry, showed the un dertaker the door, and fold his family that the funeral was post. pondd. "Uuiess I can have things as I want them I won't be buried," he said, "and that settles it." He has teturned to duty at the express office, and the boys have granted him a week's trial fn see if they can safely let him be around. Notwithstanding the heat he keeps nicely, and there ire no evidences as yet that he is spoiling. Philadelphia Mirror. Water ia Mines. One of the most important expense in working items of many coal mines is the enormous amount of water that has to be pumped rqm them. The posi tion of the coal strata is such that if no water rose from below I hem, he W;ter that finds its way to them from the Piirface would stM ho no inconsiderable quantity. All this water has to lie brought lo the surface by the aid of ex pensive and powerful machinery, she running of which, exclusive of wear and tear, involves a heavy expense in the way of fuel and l::bor. In deep mines, where there is no possibility of passing the water through turn nels or drains, it entails a contin uous work on the pumping en gines. Some idea f the quan tity to he removed may bo fount d from the Hatrment of Gypsy Grove Colliery, in Pennsylvania, which mines about 100,000 tons of cos.I per annum, in which it is asserted that Ihe water pumped out reached 1,000,000 ions, or ten tons of water for every ton of coal. It is also stated (hat (he water pumped from the Diamond Colliery exceeds in tons all the co d taken from the mines in the Whole Lackawanna District. Silver mines sire also subject lo the same evil. The Couittock mines ate raising from four and a half millions t five millions o! ions of water p r year. As the depth inci eases, the quantity of vater has also increased. This vast amount of water has Lither :o been raised to, or nearly to, the -urface; but the completion of ihe Sutio tunnel wiil obviate the necessity of raising abjve the level of it. t From the facts given above, it will be seen that the removal o! water from the mines is one of ihe greate t, if not Ihe grealei-t, iiem of expense. It requires the nigiiest engineering skill to over come this difilnidty, and were it not f'M- the appliance of ponder ous machinery, such mines us the Comsiotk v.'ouid have to be abnii- loiied ;u account of the impossi btiiy of removing the water. Mining and Scientific Press, Telegraph Blunders. A gentleman who had gone to while her husband was making ; his way in a contrary direction. Not long since a message came to the princip.d of a business delphia "Am at Continental House. Send some hash by mail." The agent aid not intend to re flect upon I lie quality of the food at'the hotel, but wanted "cash" sent by mad. An affectionate uncle was in formed by telegraph: "Mary is to be buried on Wednesday. Come sure." Mary, who lived in Chi- ; cago. was his favorite niece, and j as he had t.ot heard of her illness the sad intelligence gave him a seveie shoi k. He dressed him- self in deep mourning and made a hurried j urney to the West to find a j ivial party at Mary's wedding. The wires had ar ranged for her to be buried in stead of ni'trried. Probably the worst blunder ever made was ono that occurred in the case of a St. Louis merchant, who, while in New York, re ceived a telegram that his wife was ill. He sent a message to his family doctor, asking the nature of the sickness and re ceived piomptly tne answer: "No dang jr. !d Your wife has hstd a child. If we tan keen her from having another to-night she will do well." The mystification o the agitated husband was not re moved until a second inquiry re vealed the fact that his indis posed lady had had a chill. Ilcrocco a Paradise fur J ews.
