THE BROAD TOP RAILROAD.
PLIII.ADELPHIA, June Bth, MI
L. P. Wabon, Esq., President H. et B. T. RB.
Dear Sir:—At your request 1 give you my
opinion of the general character of the Broad
Top Coal region, its facilities for mining, and
the quantity of its coal. . . .
Being a small, compact group of basins, in
the midst of a very large manutacturing region
(the country of middle Pennsylvania drained
by the Juniata, with innumerable iron lama.
cos, forges, steam saw and grist wills, and
large towns, and traversed by the main trunk
of the Pennsylvania Railroad, opening to a
trade of a million of tons made upon it, will
task all the energy and capital put to work
within its limits.
The Broad Top Coal is nearly altogether
free front sulphur, and resembles most nearly
in its different varieties, the George's Creek
and other beat varieties of the Cumberland
Coal, Maryland, the regions being in the same
line, and the beds being identical and similar
ly situated. It in neither a gas coal nor an
anthracite, but the finest steam coal in the
Philadelphia, therefore, must also become
a great market fir it, and I think the Oman
steamers will run on Broad Top nod Cumber
land coal. Without referring to the caper
ence of the Welsh and English factories and
steamers, and the experiments on thin aide the
water, the report of the late trial ttip of the
Ericsson, with its new steam engines, give
this Cumb3rland and Broad Top variety of
coal a preference over the Anthracite they
uthd (variety nut stated) in the rates of 94 to
There are eight or ten beds in the series re
maining in the Broad Top basins, three being
large beds, averaging six and seven feet, the
rest rouging between one foot and four or
The lowest large bed on which fine openings
Lave been made tor some years past, at the
Biddlesburg and Old Hopewell banks, the Ev•
ans and Hamilton bank, the Crawford and the
Barnett banks, yields on an average nix feet of
coal, but swells sometimes to ten and twelve;
has a regular top and an irregular bottom; sel•
dom dila more deeply than ten degrees either
way ; keeps above water level chiefly in the
wattt basin, and meet content in all two thou
sand millions of tone. It is the - second bed

or six narrow parallel through which together
from the Broad Top Coal basin; exposing its
outcrop to attack at water level each time on
each side of each of the three transverse val
leys or ravines which trench the mountain to
its base. The coal of this bed is usually very
good. The Barnett opening has yielded cope.
rior coal, equal to any sernibitutui,tous coal in
the country. Tits Crawford opening in this
bed on the Railroad Company's lands, as well
as the Barnett opening, is admirably situated
for mining this bed northward in the two west•
The second large bed is the seventh or eighth
in the series, ascending, and takes the place of
the former at water level at the headwaters,
and in the deepest and middle iroughs. An
upper conglornorate, rolling over it and all the
coals below it, in a great wave, forms the high
vault•shaped central axis of the Broad Top
Plateru, and has protected this coal bed from
denudation to such an extent that it must con
tain at least twelve hundred millions of tons.
Where this "top rock" ends to the northward,
underneath its broken down outcrop along
Slioup's run, the coal bed has been attacked in
several gangways, new and old. Here in the

be good enough to tell us who is?

Last Wednesday, the trial of Driscoll, charged
with participating in the murder of Farenbaugh
near LaFavette, Indiana, resulted in his eom
viction. The jury brought in a verdict of gull.
tv, and the jud.'o pronounced the sentence of
&nth. On the previous day, as we learn I: o
the.l sidianapolis Journal, as Mr. Saunders, one
of the jcry who convicted Miles, another of the
gang of Farenbsugh murderers, was shot at by
a desperado with a rifle, the ball striking withiu
a few inches of him. The following is the
guess of the journal as to the cause of this act.
Since his discharge from the Miles jury, he has
been acting as bailiff in the Court room, and
has been more recently employed as inside
watchman at the jail, His vigilance has been
a source of great annoyance to the prisoners,
allowing them to hold conversation with no one
except in his presence, and adopting other pre.
cautions that would effectually prevent the ar
rangement of any plan for their escape. Their
outside sympathisers may have concluded to
