a more aud mom important article of

the annual coal product iqn of Great
Brilaba was 24,OW.tx0 tons; for the
year 1001 tlie coal proiliK-tiou Iwll prob

of 1,HW) nr cent.- In, 1831 tlie popula

and "the next census, 1!X1. will proba
bly ' show aliout4ti.iim.imo 5n that
eouutry, an Increase of tit! 2-3 ier cent,
in 70 years. Therefore the production
of coal ha increased . from one ton
ler capita to six tons, and the rate of
increase has been 15 times as great
as the rate cf increase in population.
Iu 1840 the production of bituminous
coal in the United States was bet wee-.
