The 'Memorial' of the undersigned. now indi.
vidufilly engaged in th_c mining of Anthracite Coal
in Schuylkill roanty, RESPECTFULLY steawrru:
That 4iisr With feelings of deep interest and a
larm, they witness the exertions of certain Capi
talists and Monoporists, (now within the Halls of
your Honorable bodies,) to obtain chartered privi
leges for the purpose of mining coal; privileges
which if grunted. most tend not only to destroy
the exertions-and blight the hopes of your Mew.
orialists, and drive them from this vast field ot
competition, but place the coal trade entirely in
the hands of a few Corporate Bodies; thus legal.
izing a monopoly of one of the ) most important
necessaries of domestic economy; an article which
must evemday add to the wealth and !importance
of one State, placing her at once pre eminent in
.U.e Union, with regard to Manufactures.
Your Memorialists arc well, aware, that ape•
eious arguments hare been made use of, to induce
your lionorablel3udies to believe, that rto mate-
rial quantity of coal can be mined without the in.
ter vention of dock companies—that the mining
of coal is too precarious, and respires too much
capital for individual enterprize. &c. &e.
We therefore pray that your Honorable bodies
will receive with caution such statements, as their
fallacy is at once shown by the fact,that come 'in
dividual operators have mined more coal the past
season, than one of the companies located in this
region, the whole fizturea and apparatus of which
would be considered disreputable in the most
hum'ile mining estahlishment in the region. The
large-quantity of coal sent to market by the 'other
company, it is well known, owes much more to
the enterptize and exertions of the indefatigable
gentleman at the head of that company, than
its chartered privileges, and is at once a conclu
sive demonstration., that individuals arc fully com
peteot to meet bny demand in the article of coal
that the-market may require.
A question hero suggests its6lf: was not some
of the coal sent to mar ket by this company. the
past.seassan,parchasedfrom individuals; and if so,
(of which there can be doubt,) dog's it not im
„ply that individuals can mine coal at least as well
'as companies, when companies can afford to buy
their coal to sell again?
• It is a matter worthy of notice, and perhaps
not generally known to your Honorable Bodice,
_that chartered companies , with all their reputed
capital and advantages, have made hut one effort
to trace the existence of our coal measures below
what is termed the water level; and that attempt,
owing to the want of knowledge on the part of the
agents of the company, was decidedly calculated
to establish the absurd Weeny that our coal mea
l:imps terminate at isvery inconsiderable distance'
below that level. Individual enterprise, however,
was not to be lulled into repose like the distant
Directors of a Coal Company, but was "wide a
wake" at the alarming theory, which wos soon
refuted by the driving of five different inclined
planes, within the past season, for the purpose of
exploring the vast depths ofuur etial veins. Two
Steam Engines, ullwenty horsopower each, have
been already erected, and a third contratted for,
for this purpose, and yet you arc told that iddi
vidual enterprise and capital, is ineentetent to
the mining aerial in any quantity.
Your 'Memorialists cannot but approach your
honorable bodies with confidence, when they re
flect that they address themselves to the combin.
ed sound sense of the Repreteolotisri of the Peo
pie, 'the bone and sinew - of the Cinnmonwealth.
They ask for what? for nothing, but to be ullotv
ed to explore the lvdden treasures of the earth, as
mossof you individually are periniitted to till its
surfice or plough its mighty waters in your own
way,& without the intervention ofstock companies.
Few of your Memorialists would have had the
honor of addressing you as Collins, had they not
most confidently believed that-the very able report
of the Committee of the Senate of Pennsylvania,
df which S. J. Packer, Esq. was Chairman, in the
year 1834, had completely settlad the question;
that corporsto Companies were 'entirely ormeees
eary to the full and complete spacers of Alining
Coal. To use its own concluding words, •• There
is at present no farther Lsgistatice pr•uvisioni as.
cessary to protect, facilitate, or encourage the Coal
t -
Your Memorialists therefore ,:have but little
more to add:- - They pledge them elves individu
ally and eeiteelieelyithat they ixpssess the means
and the,ste c t employ, the appeacbing season,

We are highly 0-atified to see that the
citizens of Ohio are truly sensible of the
merits and claims of the distinguished pa- lc ,
'riot who resides among them. We re
joice to find that some of the most eminent
ine.n•of the .staff; are his warmest -advo
.cattes. We cannot require higher or more
conclusive t6-tituony of the fitness and
qualifications of Geiniarrison than the n
recommendations of the most distinguish it
ed of his fellow citizens—men who were
not only eye witnesses in many instances t i
of his brilliant military career, and specta.-
tors of the manner in whicb.he discharged .
his civil functions, but likewise men who
are at present intimately acquainted with

would not hazard:their own reputations,
'tar less betray their country hfrecom
mending a man for the high office of Pres
ident, who is destitute of the necessary
qualifications,as his enemies are in the ha-
hit of alleging.. These are.perfectly well
aware how idle and ifnpotent the
attempt to assail his well known integrity,
and tried patriotism, and therefore they
resort to the artifice of decrying his abili
ties, and pronounce bum entirely destitute
of intellectual strength, that whatever his
faculties might once have been, they have
now fallen into Utter decay and rum—such
remarks being sometimes repeated by in
dividuals who have heard them from o
therS,-and adopted withotit sufficient consi
&ration, and who may ho perfectly hon
est and sincere in . their present impres
sions, but who are Waiting for further and
more satisfactory information. We call
upon all such to reflect that the fellow citi
zens of Gen. Harrison are those whose si
tu:it:iota enables them to be best acquaint
ed with his present qualifications, and that
some of themosterninent of these have by
their rte-lepai, borne the highest possible
testimony in his favor, besides the vast
multitude of others who have come for

more conclusive than this?
