A Tho common con Oil of new York City passed a Resolution to petition the legislature to Amend the City charter that Tho councilmen should re Nievo $1,000 a your for services. Tho mayor vetoed Tho Resolution and it failed to he passed by a two thirds Voto. Pennsylvania.

It was us to a term of contempt but arose state and of their yearly increasing value a j from the paucity of the language of the Day. These Are a vast source of wealth which we j a3 i,ll0 old 155�?~j, we Hud in a memorial of Cecil s enjoy in coms nod with our sister states few of j which approach us in the amount of value i produced but it is her vast Mineral wealth by i lit a \ its organization Jobu 1l. Dawson president. The Lecompton men in the majority appointment of a tub committees on resolutions. # which gives her a pre Eminence Over any one of them the limits of a newspaper article preclude the possibility of our giving More Thap a general sketch of the coals Orke a minerals 4c. Of Pennsylvania. The immense Coal regions form the most interesting feature of the Mineral Reso tirces of our state. In Quantity it is inexhaustible and in Quality almost j everywhere West of the mountains and in the Southern part of the state to a the East of them bituminous Coal is abundant and easily mined. The bituminous Coal Region of Pennsylvania a a estimated at 21,000 Square Miles or 13,440,000 acres Over which scattered. Of the amount mined in each year there Are no data irom which even an approximate estimate can be made but it is in Rufous. Twenty years ago it was Esti mated that in Pittsburgh Alono the annual consumption of Coal was eight millions of bushels and at the present time this amount is More than doubled. The annual Export to All Points in the Mississippi Valey from Pitts Burgh to new Orleans from the mines of Pennsylvania is almost beyond computation and forms a great source of Indus rial occupation and wealth. We Are probably within the with Joy. Mark when we estimate the annual amount of Bitu Mirons Coal mined in Pittsburgh at three millions of tons or say ninety millions of bushels. Here in Pittsburgh we ares accustomed to Coal that we do not sufficiently a Precy ate its importance As an element of wealth. Coal i amp the food and Iron the muscle of oar vast manufacturing Industry. It furnishes innumerable workmen with employment and feeds and clothes millions of people at Home and Ata distance whose Active Industry constitutes the True sources of National wealth. Pennsylvania Coal keeps up the fires of thousands of steam engines which Hammer blow grind pump spin print navigate the Rivers lakes and oceans travel the railroads and perform Hundred other works of Industry and commerce1 it keeps in operation a countless number of finances rolling Mills and workshops in different branches of arts and manufactures the Anthracite Coal Fields of the Eastern portion of the state Are equal in importance As a basis of wealth producing Industry to the bit Minns ores of the West. It is generally Classi fled As consisting of three Separ the Coal Fields designated As the Southern Middle and Northern Coal Fields. Thu Southern comprising the mining districts of Lehigh Schuylkill Swatara and Susquehanna has immense Beds of Anthracite coals some of them sixty feet in thickness of the Best Quality and mined with great facility. The Middle Coal Field is composed of several minor basins and lies North of the Broad Mountain including the Beaver Meadow Ila Elton Shamokin and Mahanoy districts. The product is a hard shining and it compact Coal and has not been fully developed hitherto but that great civilized Tho Railroad is causing it3 hidden treasures to reach a Market and their value to become known and appreciated. The Northern or Wyoming and Lackawanna Field is nearly equal in extent to the others and contains numerous Beds of excellent Coal from Oue to thirty feet in thick Ness. These three great d. Posits of Anthracite Coal have been calculated to contain 957 Square Miles or 624,000 acres. A cubic Yard of Coal when mined �8 estimated to contain a ton so that a vein but three feet thick and an acre in extent would yield 4,848 tons. When the fact is considered that these Beds lie one Over another to the number of ten and some of them Are sixty feet thick tie mind is at a loss to conceive much less to calculate the vast Quantity of this most valuable and useful material which Underlays our site and no one can estimate How much it is destined to add to the wealth and importance of our state. The consumption and exportation of Coal Are both annually increasing b a eastward and Westward. H a a now the general Luel in the Atlantic cities and must eventually become the common fuel in All operations which require artificial heat. The Dimi Autira of Wood upon the Western Waters constantly increases the consumption of Coal and from Cincinnati to new Orleans As Well As All along the Atlantic Seaboard Pennsylvania Coal is mainly depended upon for fuel. The Supply is inexhaustible and the demand As it increases causes new capital to embark in the business which is greatly facilitated by the Railroad enterprises of the Day. The Coal mines s of Pennsylvania Are As much greater and Burer source of wealth and Prosperity than the Gold mines of California. The one is an actual value the other but its representative the Industrial operations of manufactures and Trade which depend upon the a a Black diamonds of the Keystone state furnishes employment and support and luxuries to millions of people. In Mineral wealth Pennsylvania brands preeminent and univ led a Moug her sister states her Hills and valleys teem wit i an inexhaustible source of wealth and Prosperity and daily the efforts of productive usefulness Are developing and enlarging All those elements of Prosperity which form a sure basis an 1 permanent employment for the interests of the agriculturalists the manufacturer and the commercial Man. The Iron Oreb of Pennsylvania Aree tens sively diffused throughout the state and the Quality which is annually mined and smelted in the state May be ascertained with tolerable accuracy. Marble Salt Limestone and a variety of other minerals Are produced. Iron is the great Staple of Pennsylvania and ranks in importance with Coal. Our own soil produces the one which is wrought into value by Thein Dusty of our own people its production and manufacture Are so much additional wealth gained to the slate but the production and manufacture Are so indissolubly connected we shall Endeavor to give an idea of the Iron interest in a future article under the head of manufactures.

Hammond contended that Tho Lecompton Constitution embodied the will of Tho people of Kansas for the convention was an assemblage of the people in their highest capacity. To said that he had understood that Ike senator from Illinois had declared that he had opposed the Lecompton Constitution Only on one Point namely because he was not satisfied that it embodied the will of the people. A or. Douglas replied that that was not exactly Bis position. He thought there were other irregularities but he would waive them if he would be assured that the Constitution embodied the will of the people. Or. Hammond had understood that. Or. Douglas maintained that All the other irregularities could be cured by Congress and that was some ground of difference Between them but the question is How can the will of the people of Kansas be ascertained ? lie thought that or. Douglas was in error in saying that the Lecompton Constitution was the creature of the territorial legislature and to thought that from that error had probably Arisen All his subsequent errors upon that subject. How was it possible that Tho convention could be the creature of the territorial legislature Tho convention was an assemblage of the people in their highest Sovereign capacity about to perform the highest possible not of sovereignty the territorial legislature was a Mere provisional government a Petty corporation appointed and paid by Congress without a particle of Sovereign Power and therefore would not interfere with sovereignty although that sovereignty Wab still inchoate. Con Gress would not interfere with a convention and could not Confer upon the legislature Power to interfere with it for Congress is Dot Sovereign it has no Power to outside of the limitations of the Constitution no right to carry into effect the supreme will of any people if it has not Boon expressed in that Constitution therefore Congress is not Sovereign nor does it hold the sovereignty of Kansas that sovereignty that resides in thirty one Sovereign states. He then proceeded to argue that Thole Compton Constitution was a Legal instrument even if i embodied but the will of a minority of the people of Kansas. He closed by saying that if the South was obliged to surrender the government after sixty years they would surrender it with a country abundant in Prosperity incalculable in strength and the wonder and admiration of the world. Or. Doolittle alluded to throats made in a certain Quarter that unless Kansas be admitted under the Lecompton Constitution Tho Union will be dissolved. Did he believe that such a great National calamity could follow or was at nil Likely he confessed that the consideration would to entail led to great weight. He did not believe that All Tho politicians in Washington could dissolve the Union. Referring to boasts made that if Fremont had been elected he would never have been inaugurated he said that the re publicans would stand by the Union whoever was elected president. He then passed a glowing Eulogy on the Union. Without concluding the Senate adjourned until monday. House of representatives. The speaker announced the first business to be or.
