A sketch of the Mineral resources of the District through which the Sunbury Aud Erie Luil Road is located. Ridge Ond the application of Anthracite Coal is easily smelted and yields a very Superior Iron for Many purposes.

Music murdered or run Mads squeaking cot from an old fiddle the Brier Tifi o operator witty his head twisted if in agony Hie own performance in doubling Hie the Mineral wealth of the Region through which the Sunbury and Erie Railroad is located is but very imperfectly developed and even what is known a not duly appreciated. In deed in is scarcely possible adequately to comprehend the real position we now occupy in re lation to our Mineral during the last Quarter of a Century practical science has developed such a multitude of inventions and improvements and so vastly extended the use Ful arts that none but the most attentive can keep Pace Wilh the Progress of this age of in Valion. The Field is yet open to the scientific explorer Aud the Artisan and a thousand new subjects demand their attention fur although a Rich store of knowledge has been obtained much yet remains to be discovered. In 1638 the smelting of Iron Ore with anthrax cite Coal was accomplished simultaneously in this country and in Europe. During the ten years preceding that period vast sums of Money had been expended to effect thin object. This discovery once opened a new Era in the manufacture of Iron. Ores hitherto useless once in demand Hills and mountains of but Little use became intrinsically valuable. In 40 the raw bituminous coals were first successfully used in this country for smelling Iron Ore Al though used in England for that purpose since 1713. The superiority of Anthracite Over a4l other lae s fur locomotive engines has just been demonstrated and the uses of the different varieties Coal in the various branches of manufactures and the arts arc so generally admit Ted that i will not attempt to allude to them deeper y. Coal known in great Britain As Early an the nine Century but is but Little More than 250 years since came into general use is a fuel. Both the Anthracite and the bituminous Coal vase first observed in Pennsylvania in 1768, was not until is 12 that the first Coal from the Schuylkill from the Lehigh and 1829 from in 1820 there were 365 tons of Anthracite Coal sent from the Anthracite Coal Region of Penn Sylvania and in 1853 there were tons sent to Market. In 1327 the Mauch chunk Railroad nine Miles in length was constructed a Cost of about the total length of railroads constructed to the Anthracite Coal exceeds Miles a coast of the assessed value of the counties embracing the Coal regions to 1852, was the same District in 1853, showing a degree of Prosperity unequalled in any other portion of the state. An Effort was made to bring the bituminous Coal into use a period prior to the Anthracite Coal Trade a Small Quantity was sent Down the Susquehanna from the Vicinity of Cle Arnald in arks previous to 1789 but the Means of transportation have always proved too imperfect to make this business All profitable on an extensive scale from this Region and this great mine lies almost untouched in the very Centre of our slate. The local amount of bituminous Coal mined in our stale does not exceed one million of tons annually. The Eastern termination of the Sunbury and Erie Railroad Sunbury where connects with the Philadelphia and Sunbury and Erie Railroad and also Wilh the Susquehanna rail Road is near the Western termination of the shame Kin Coal Field. This great Anthracite a sin a the most regular and productive of All the Coal basins in Pennsylvania. Nearly 30 veins Are said to exist and some of them of great size. The Mammoth is reported to be 60 feet thick another one 27 feet and Many others from 5 to ,11j feet. is generally a White Ash a free Burner and quite soft. A cubic Yard weighs one ton and seventy three pounds its specific Gravity is and contains 89.0 of Carbon 6.1 of volatile Mailer and 4.0 of ashes. The White Ash coals Are generally preferred for making Iron on account of their greater density and compactness of Structure and will longer remain in the open air with out change but the red Ash affords a Small amount More of heat. Shortly after leaving so Bury we reach the contours Ridge which contains a vast Supply of Iron Ore. The numerous Iron establishments Danville Are up plied with Iron Ore from this is the West Branch into Union found in various locations in the same Range extending into Miflin county but Ila principal body appears now to be Between the North and West Branch of the Susquehanna. Iron ores have been found in almost every part of Union county and Thero is no double but that in exists in Greal bodies since Ibe bog deposits in Many places Are very considerable. Lead has also been found in a number of paces bul As Yel in no considerable Quantity the difficulty however has been in the ignorance in the Truo Geo logical position of these minerals. The geology of this often quite complicated and foreign miners Are the last ones to know anything about . Leaving Union and Northumberland counties we enter Lycoming a county extremely Rich in minerals. On Ibe South Aida of the River along the Side of the Muncy Mountain in a formation of no. 5 of prof. Rogers. Liis for mation contains a vein of Fossiliferous Iron a few inches to two feet in thickness. Where the strata is nearly vertical this vein is very thin and poor but As the inclination of the strata increases the thickness of the on in creases and ils Quality is More productive. This vein extends the Clire length of ibid Ridge. In the Valley of thu West Tho Limestone of nos. 5 and g Are found in great abundance and of the purest Quality.

This Coal proved to be the beat of 42 varieties for the use of British steamers. Its specific Gravity is 1 391 con Lains 73.44 can on 18.8l volatile Are let and 7.75 of ashes. is moderately and close burning. The Supply Here is almost inexhaustible and will command the attention of our Seaboard cities Al an Early Day being 280 Miles do stand from new York and 200 from the Cumberland Coal mines Are 215 Miles from Iho City of Baltimore and the Bloss or Coja mines 342 Miles from the City of new York. Under the Coal is found a great abundance of fire Tulay in Many place sex feet in thickness and in the Coal Region is found Quartz Santl admirably adapted for the Manu facture of Glass. Every few Miles Are axes of Elevation run Ning nearly parallel with each other which Divide the Coal Fields into separate basins. Near the month of Youn woman s Creek we enter the second which extends uninterruptedly to Cambria or to Somerset eight seams occur in this Basin the largest is from 6 to 9 Feol thick contains 78.2 Carbon 13 volatile matter and 8.8 ashes.

These ores contain from 42 to 60 per the following Section will exhibit some of cent of Metalic Iron. These three veins of Ore the minerals of this Region run nearly parallel Bro Ghoul these ridges for a distance of nearly 100 Miles. Small quantities of the Black oxide of Manga Nese and the Green Carbonate of Copper have been observed in a number of places in these ridges but their appearance has Little attention. On the top of the Allegheny the bituminous Coal is found. This Coal approach i within 25 Miles of the Anthracite of the Wilkes Barre a san from this Point to Queen s run n distance of about 25 Miles the bituminous Coal lies in detached basins and patches. Eight different seams of Coal have been detected in this District two Are worked about 4 feet thick. This Coal is of an excellent Quality containing 74.5 of Carbon 20 5 of volatile mat Ter and 5.0 of ashes. There exists throughout this District an Argillaceous Carbonate of Iron and a Ali Ite pro to Carbonate of Iron a Bich somewhat resembles a Fine grained Sandstone and is not generally recognized As an Iron Ore by those unacquainted with in contains about 38 per cent of me Talic Iron and with Greal Success i Ashl Onville on the Lycoming Creek. There were in 1850, 52 furnaces in Pennsylvania using these varieties of Iron Ore and is Cin played extensively in Many parts of the world for the manufacture of steel Clinton and Centre counties next claim our attention and these Are pro eminently Rich in Mineral deposits. In the Antic Linal Axis of the Limestone valleys in these counties Are found in exhaustible deposits of the pipe Iron which yields the celebrated Juniata was not formerly known that this Ore was so abundant As really is and there is no doubt but that will be selected throughout these valleys in the have these ores yield from 50 to 65 per cent of me Talic Iron.
