Coal in Utah. --Coal is believed to exist in large quantities in the Great Basin of Utah.--On the Weber river, a tributary of Great Salt Lake, from the western slope of the Wansatch range, coal is now regularly mined, and selling at the pits for $5 per ton; though the price in Salt Lake City is $25, on account of the expense of transportation. Should this coal prove to be of good quality, one great obstacle in the way of a Pacific Railroad will be removed, viz: A scarcity of fuel for locomotives. Wood is extremely scarce on the plains this side of the Rocky Mountains, while in the Great Basin there is even less.--The discovery of coal near the centre of the projected route, therefore, is exceedingly fortunate.
