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 conceivable variety. 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 body. 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.
