1864 - Tons of Coal

News
There is a bed of coal near Portsmouth, Rhode Island, which is estimated to contain about forty millions of tons, and the opening of the new railroad to Newport will be likely to bring much activity to the mines and throw the coal into market, where what is now got out commands the remunerative price of $7.50 per ton. About seventy-five tons are now sent to Taunton every day.
