Attion sitlimiliCter ' "An: Cr:l lk by,
legislative enaceinene - thath.la consistent
'with, - or indispe isible . to the ' , purposes of

intaiiita r thait 'it 'Mai!' be l absdhnely neces
sary for..him to. yield, to these purposes,
should be allowed freely to pursue his own
qrue . anitsubstaptial happiness. Teo much'
entire, wltet 9,f -it. , maxim is :true,
that "the ` Wo rld is 'grained too' much."
The graniPeail, in relation.tii the incor
poration of companies, and agaipit which
the cometittee would 'iciest earnestly pro-.
test, Is in giving them, in addition 'to their
mining,privileges, 'the control oE'a canal
Or rail ineitorit!tpower toloCk up at Wee
sure, the rites of a whole valley or
community ! - To this source may be tra
ced many tir the. evils •complained' If by
the pnblie; and it' Is hoped; - Ss at 'this day
'such inducements :Cannot be conmdered
r necessary to the construction Of public im
proveinentit;they may io future be guard
, ed against by the legislature. • For mining
purposes tdoite, stich powers would at
presentpreeent'teem'to be entirely unnecessary,
unless in the cases already adverted to.
Should they ever, hereafter, under change
of circumstances, be deemed' necessary,
the legislature will then be cOmpetent to'
determine the question. - Until that'exi
gency arrive, 'it would,‘'in - the opinion of
the'conrinittee, be the surest and safest
policy to alloo o the business to remain open
to the free antfuntramelled exercise of in
dividual-enterplise, and indi vidtiat control.
- The' cointnittee, therefore, having ex
tended this report toe greater length, they
fear; than may be acceptable to the Senate,
will not scot) t to comment upon the many
other brats which the case would seem
i tolireserit, nor to analyze, more
'the fadta coiiimbnicsted by the 'coal deal ,
ere of the different districts. They con
clude byexpressing the opinion, that, with
the exception of the measures already re
commended, there is at present no "fur
ther legislative provision necessary to
protect, ilicilitittrand 'encourage the coal
trade. 1 , • --
le proving tht . individuals have outstripped
coal companies, it by no means follows that com
panies and harmless. The truth is,that the very
reason why individuals have so far succeeded in
'this regionl% that they have thus fir prevented
them frosn'obiiiding the ticenhavicy. In. all the
other Anthracite regions individual competition
is driven swag sad eschided. And the same ‘
result must take place here, if the number of coal
companies is to be augmented at every session.
Xnd if thii region "hall'heen in the hands of coal
comperes*, the market at 'this 'day- w ltild *it
have 'sten supplied with foal. The Lehigh
`Company commenced shipping coal in 1820, and
