THE FOliMATIOX OF COAL, j
Cuiil. then, according to tho modern
hypothesis, is merely a transmuted
vegetable soil which accumulated, not
under water, but under the trees com
posing primu'Vitl forests. These forests
stood on areas which were subjected to
repeated chungos of level in relution to
that of tho ocean. It must bo under
stood that though the ground beneath
us is popularly regarded as the type of
everything steady and immovable, this
artlt ot ours is liir ipom deserving the
haraeter ior stability with which it is
thus f'ondlv credited absoluto rest is
all but unknown to it. It hapctis that
even at tho present day there uro cer
tain regions, such as those stiiiiect -to
volcanic disturbances, whoso tenden
cies are always to move upward, liko
the more aspiring ot our youths, w lulu
tljere are others, such ns the coral ro
irious, which are surauny anuiu, tti.v
tiioRcunfbrttinnte youths w ho have failed
in the voyage of life. So it was in tha
olden time. Tho coal beds appear to
havo accumulated on the latter class of
areas areas of depression geograph
ical regions which bad a tendency to
sink Ik'Iow the level of tho ocean. Mud
and silt hail collected upon such areas
until tbo deposits thus formed reached
the surface level of the water ; antl then
emtio what appears to have been neces
sary to tho growth of tho coal-plants,
namely, a bed of peculiar gray mud.
We do not know why that mud enme
there, or w hence it was derived. That
it was vory different from the ordinary
deposits, tho sandstones It lid shales,
which accumulated in tho carbonifer
ous tx'oun, is shown by tho physical
properties which it still possesses, and
winch they do not poseB properties
which ht it lor the purpose to w Inch it
is now devoted, of being manufactured
into fire-bricks, whence its common
name of fire-clay. That this gruy mud
was the soil lirelerred hy tlio. great
majority of the plants constituting the
curlsinilerous torests is as obvious r
thut tho onk wood of Herefordshire
and tho sunny south will not flourish
upon tho cold soils of the Lancashire
uplands. Minute sKrcs. representing
the seeds ot the plants which ullcrwuril
bccnino coul, were floated to this mud
by wind and water; nnd finding there
a suitable soil, they germinated, struck
root, nnd soon converted the swampy
area into a magnificent forest. As the
trees irrew they shed successive showers
of their microscopic spores, which ollen
tell in such vast quantities as to consti-
tutu an important contribution to the
accumulating vegetable soil ; but a long
with them there tell other and more
bulky objects, such as might be expect
ed to accumulate under a semi-tropical
torest, the dead leaves, broken tirnnclies.
and prostrated stems, aliko contributed
a share to tho decaying vegetable mass.
In tho tropical regions ol tho present
tiny such accumulations becomo rapidly
decomposed, ant) pass away iu gaseous
tonus; but such does not appear to
have lieen the rase in thu carlsinilerous
aire nt least, pot in tho same degree
l.ven in Jiitncaslnre, notwithstanding
all the influences tending to diminish
tho bulk of the vegetable mass
such as atmospheric deconiosition
cheinicul changes occurring aurin;
the later process of mineralisation, am
the pressure of super-imposed rocks
prolonged throughout ull sulujcquont
ages, wo have cottl-seams six or seven
feet in thickness, while they occur in
America, as foroxamplein theooliticcotil
field on tho James river, with tho sur
prising thickness of between thirty and
rty leet. Such accumulations ol
vegotuhle soil ns this thickness of solid
coal represents, almost exceed compre
hension, nnd must indicate enormous
periods of undisturbed forest life. But
at length a change came over the
sylvan scene; the land sank whether
suddenly or slowly we hnve no means
of saying. Tho numbers of dead fishes
found on tho roots and uK)r portions
of some coals seem to indicate a sudden
rush of pure water over the land, fol
lowed by tho quick destruction of the
hshos, iKUSoncu try tlio bituminous
vegetable mud m which they found
themselves entangled. In other cases
tho roof of clean blue shale, devoid of
all appearance of either animal or
vegetable remains, and resting iniluedi-
uUily upon a defined surliice of pure
coul, is suggestive ol a slower submerg
ence, allowing time for tlto destruction
and obliteration of all traces of grow
ing vegetation upon its surface. The
extent and duration of the submerged
stngo has varied, as also has, in ull
probability, tha kind of water under
which it sunk. i helher the coal-
mcasuits are murine or lrosu water
dessisit is still an oh'H question, and
answer to which depends partly upon
the nalure of certain bivalve shells
(Aiithraeosiu)) found iu connection
with many of the coals. It is allowed
by the advocate of tho marine hypoth
esis, that the ganoid fishes so common
among the carboniferous beds are ns
likely to be fresh water animals as
murine ones r-tho only living ganoids
with which we lire acejtiuiutcd, being
found in rivers and not in the sea; but
tho woight of this argument is mate
rially reduced by the tact thut in those
paleozoic ages all the known fishes
were either ganoids or pincoitls: and no
one doubts lor a moment thut the givnt
muss, even of the former, must have
been marine, otherwise we obtain in the
reiiWie ad aluurdum thut there were
no fishes in many of the anejent sea.
But there remains yet a moro conclu
sive argument in favor ot tho murine
hypothesis. Many ol tlio remains ol
tlshe found both in the lowermost ami
in the uppermost coal-las Is are those of
placoids ancient sharks, oltcn ol large
sio and of many siHicies, These
fishes, which are unite as abundant in
tho carboniferous rooks as are tho gan
oids, were certainly murine animals,
ami indicate in an irrefragable manner
the marine submergence of some at
least of the coal-seams. Hut the prob-
abilities of the onse suggest, tho conclu
sion that the nature ot the water would
vary at different localities. u Ire
quetillv meet with long burrow areas
of sandstone plowing theirway llmmgli
coui-seama which evntimie their uni
form course right aud left of those in
terruptions. e may conclude, with
great probability, that such sudden in
terruptions to the continuity ol thu
vegetable soil represent ancient creeks
or estuaries which rau in among the
forests, and which, doubtless, reuvivct)
their drainage in Die shape of brooks
antl river. In such case, submergence,

two agendo would lie tho same. Suc

the outlines of his 'career: lu IStjtJ,
Georgo Hamilton Gordon, sixth Earl
of Abenlcen-took bis seat iu the House

title nnd esliile. i r " . i i
lu 1S72, a jH'rnon about tho snmo

was tho occupant of a magnificent suit
of rooms ut tlio Metropolitan Hotel, in
New York.. His meals were nerved" In

upon which were the armorial bear

private secretary, hi valet, and all tbo,
iipMirteiiauces to w hich his blood and
wealth entitled him were in attendance1.
Ho had been travelling in the Woat,and
was thoroughly familiar with tho rail-,
road interests in tho United States,

and the development, of our
Western territory. Having aurmuiui

tions, parted with, nnd Ijord Gordon
took possession of, stock anil money
amounting to half-a-millioii of dollar.
Among theso t ocks were five thousand
share of Oil Creek, which Gordon
threw on the Philadelphia market.
Gould, discovering his mistake, had
the negotiation of the bonds enjoined
by our Supreme Court, and Gordon,
upon the receipt of a cable despatch
announcing thospuriotisncss of his title,
w ns arrested in Xew York, aud gave
bail, in 1807. ;
In explaining who he was, Gordon
sworo that hi stepfather, tho Count
Cliai'ltsi Henry do Cruuo, who was tho
trustee from whom he received hi
large fortune, then resided in Cam
bridgo Sqtinre, Nottingham Hill, Ivon
tlon. A London '" detective, however,
swore there w as no such place atiil no
such mini. " " i '
Mr. Gordon,' finding himself com
pletely unourtbod, his ','urnw'' shown
to be spurious, and concocted iu ignor
ance ot the laws of bcruldrv, and all
his other little tricks vain and" illusory,
left liir Manitoba, leaving hi bail to
bear tho blunt of It. " yonld, however,
nut his case into the hand of two St.
quietly over the line, anil, with tlio con
sent of tho Canadian authorities, ar
rested Gordon and were bringing him
towards tbo United Stnto when they
in turn were arrested by th Domin
ion police on the charge of knidnupping
an English, subject. ,Tha American
detective were thrown into prison and
Gordon released. ' The detectives wero
detained for several month and wero
the subject of much diplomatic corres
pondence between the two, govern
ments. They were finally released
and returned hnnuy vowing vengonco
against anything Canadiun, A a re
sult of this vow the District Attorney
of Manitoba, who prosecuted tlio caso
against the Americans, on his recent
visit to St. Paul wns nenrly beaten to
tleath nn two necasinn by the Inhabi
tant. All this whilo lord Gordon
was lying perdu, but it seems now that
the Kuglish detectives finally got on
his track and Hills' Caused the end'of
tho noble Lord's life.
