per ton.; and if any back carriage could be procured they would be delivered for less, hence the advantage of taking yarns, &c. from Knaresbro', and the neighbourhood of Pateley-Bridge to Barnsley, and bringing coals back; but independent of such an advantage we are able to prove the great saving named before in these coals:
Pounds s. d. Cost per 0 10 0 chaldron of the Kippax, or Haigh-moor coals, at the end of the Rail-way, at or near Bolton Percy, is Removing do. 0 0 9 into the waggon, (if not landed 4d.) Rail-way dues, 0 3 0 18 miles, at 2d. per ton, per mile Waggon dues, 18 0 2 3 miles, at l.5d. per ton, per mile 0 16 0
The present cost by way of Boroughbridge, is one pound five shillings, and hence the saving to the public on every ton, or chaldron of coals, will be nine shillings, except the merchants' profit.
By the foregoing statement the tonnage of the Knaresbro' and Pateley-Bridge coal, when it reaches Knaresbro', will yield a revenue of 3200 pounds annuall
