The Origin of Petroleum.
Denton, in hia popular lectures on
Geolopy, entitled, "Our Planet, its Past
and Future," after making some re
marks upon ancient sources of rock-oil,
&c., thus speaks of the original causes
of these deposits: : . -.
"This is, then, no " now thing ; but
whence ' cornea it t And in answer to
this question we have many theories,
some of them - sufficiently - ludicrous.
One suggests that, since the earth is a
huge animal, tha rocks its bones, the
water circulation in them its blood, the
grass and trees its hair, the hills pim
ples upon its face, and iEtna and Vesu
vius eruptive boils, all that is necessary
to obtain oil is to bore through the skin
into the blubber of the monster, and oil
very naturally flows from it. Another
supposes that,' during the time of the
flood, the great whales were buried deep
under accumulations of mud, in those
places where the oil most abounds ; and
be nee petroleum is merely autedeluvian
whale oil. It has been suggested that,
since the earth is at . some period to be
destroyed by fire, the oil was probably
prepared against that terrible day when
the match will be applied, and the world
burned up. - -
"Apart from these ludicrous explana
tions, however, men of science have con
sidered this question, and rendered their
verdict.' Professor Silliman 'says . that
'petroleum is uniformly regarded as a
product of vegetable" decomposition.'
Professor Dana says 'protroleu'ra is a bit-
amous liquid resulting from the decompo
sition of marine or land plants (maiuly
the latter), and 'perhaps, also, of some
nou-nitrogenous animal tissues. ' By
many, it is supposed to be a product' of
coal; and hence the name of 'coal-oil,' so
frequently applied to it. Some suppose
that the coal, being subjected to the enor
mous pressure of the overlying beds, has
yielded oil, as a linseed cake does under
a hydraulic press; and I have seen the
theory advanced, that ' the coal, heated
(as it evidently has been in the-coal re
gions of Eastern Pennsylvania), gave off
oily vapors which, rising to the cold re
gion of the upper a'r,"; condensed, and
subsequently fell in oily showers, mak
ing its way as best it could to the hol
lows of the" earth's interior, where the
oil-borer finds it to-day."
'Fa'c'ts play sad havoc with these va
rious theories. If the oil comes from
coal it seems strange that it is so rarely
met with in a coal district. I have visi
ted coal mines In England," Wales,- No
va Scotia, Cape ; Breton, and ;; not less
than ten of the United States, but nev
er saw petroleum in a coal mine. or even
smelt it; and this is an article that nev
er waits for an introduction, but salutes
the olfactories- at "once. Of course, if
this came from coal, coal miues would
be the place in which to discover it; coal
neighborhoods sliould abound with it,
coal , miners be familiar with, it, and
should never be found in rocks older than
the coal measures. The contrary of all
tins' is true. . "When it is found- in the
coal measures it has been forced up from
underlying beds in which it was origi
nally contained. ' . , .. ; -
"In this couutry, nearly all the oil
hitherto obtained has been from beds
that lie below the coal , measures, and
sometimes at a great depth below them.
Qn Oil Greek," in Pennsylvania, it is
found by boring in shales and sand
stones, sometimes to a depth of a thou
sand feet; these beds belonging to the
Chemung group of the Devonian forma
tion, and many hundred feet below the
coal measures; At Enniskillen, iu Can
ada West, where the oil has at one time
come op iu springs, and overflowing,
leaving a thick bed of asphaltum cover
ing the ground for an acre, the limestone
in which borings are mads - contains
characteristic fossils - of the Hamilton
group of the Devonian formation. .:. The
oil wells in Western Kentucky, and in
some parts of Tennessee, are "in the
Trenton limestone that is," in the lower
Silurian formation; and I have seen oil
even at the base of this. The same oil
floats on . the surface., of a -; limestone
quarry near Chicago, the limestone be
longing to the JNiagara group ot the Si
lurian formation, showing conclusively
thai it has no necessary connection with
" But may it not have been produced
from sea plants, as coal has been from
land plants, as several eminent geolo
gists have supposed ? The . quantity of
tree oil existing in the earth seems to
forbid' this. "I saw a well in Western
Virginia which' produced" twenty-eight
thousand barrels in ten months. From
three wells near Oil Creek, one thousand
barrels spouted in twenty-four . hours ;
and from one, three thousand seven hun
dred and forty. The Big Phillips' Well
struck oil in October, 1 SCI, at a depth of
four hundred and eighty feet. It yielded
about three thousand barrels a day. 1 he
oil rushed out with such violence that
the well could not "be tubed for several
days, and it has been calculated that
forty thousand barrels or oil were lost m
the creek before it could be collected.
The 'Noble' Well struck oil in
April, 1S63. Its daily yield was about
fifteen hundred barrels, at which rate it
flowed for six months. . . .
"There must be lakes of petroleum to
render such flows possible. Where are
the bodies of fucoids or sea-weeds from
which this oil "could flow? The sea
weeds of the - Silurian ' and Devonian
times (in-whoso beds the greatest quan
tity ' ,of petroleum is found) were so
loose in structure, and contained so lit
tle bituminous matter, that their impres
sions do noteven darken the light color
ed shales in which they are found im
bedded. Had these plants been as oily
as fish, their bodies would have left dark
impressions on the shales, as the bodies
of fish do ; and if they were not as oily
as nsh, or as bituminous as land plants,
by what possibility could they produce
lakes of oil 1 Jf the plants had, indeed,
been oily, no oil could have been collec
ted from them, unless preserved from
contact with the air and water. Each
plant being separated from its compan
ions, on being buried in mud, the oil, sup
posing any to exist, would have been
absorbed by it, 'and thus lost.
"Has the oil been distilled from bitum
inous shales, as some suppose 1 I think
not. : It requires a strong heat to distil
oil from shales; aiid generally, where pe
troleum is found in the greatest abun
dance, there" is the least . appearance of
igneous action. j ;
" How was it produced, i then t ' It is
a coral oil, and not a coal oil. I have
In my possession numerous specimens of
tossil coral, obtained from Devonian and
Silurian rocks belong-hio- to the family
of Jocosities, or honeycomb, stone, as the
name, means, the cells of which very
much resemble those of the honeycomb ;
and, as the cells of the honeycomb are
filled with honey, these cells are filled
with oil. ..I have found oil in some speci
mens nearly as limpid as water; and,
by heating the coral, oil runs out readily.
I have seen these oil-bearing corals at
Smokes Creek, where there are coral
reefs full of it ; in the Silurian limestone
of Middle Tennessee ; at Williamsville,
near Buffalo, and in rocks near Penn
Yan, in New York. . In the State Col
lection of Fossils at Albany, and in the
Montreal Goelogical Cabinet there are
numerous specimens. Professor Dana
informs us that it flows in drops from a
fossil coral at Monttnorenci, Canada, and
at Watertown," New York. . .
"It might be supposed that this oil fill
ed the cavities of the corals, as it might
any other cavity in the rocks; but I have
found it repeatedly in these corals, and
in no other part of the rock, invariably
accompanying 'the corals, and never con
nected with any other fossil; these corals
occur freqently in center of certain lime
stone blocks. ' Reefs of such coral would
furnish oil in quantities sufficient to ac
count for the immense deposits that have
been discovered.' Preserved by them in
compact bodies, the oil taking up at least
half the space of the coral reel, we. can
readily suppose,' tbat 'when : the ; cells
were' crushed by the superincumbent
weight of rock, or during upheavals and
subsidences, cavities and crevices in the
earth's interior would be filled by it. ;
"It is, then, an animal production,
and not a vegetable one. It is a pro
duct of the ocean, and not of the land;
being almost invariably associated with
salt water from the bottoms of seas that
then covered a large portion of Western
New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia.East
ern Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee. ' It
is not formed from the bodies of the cor
al polyps, as some' have supposed for
when dry they are a mere film, that could
be blown away Ijy a child's breath but
secreted from the impure waters, princi
pally, though not exclusively,-. of the
Devonian times; the ; coral polyps per
forming the same office for the water
that the carboniferous plants did for the
air."';,;." ' ..-'.-.
A Snake in a Watermelon.
- A boy named Cofter, who sells pa
pers " occasionally, ' for the sake of
making a few dimes, yesterday invested
ten cents of hi3 earnings in a water
melon, on Deadenck street. - He" took
it over ' to the ' stalls in the market
house, and in company with a "chum,"
proceeded to have a luxuriant feast. A
large jack knife, which Cofter had pur
chased about two weeks ago with his
savings, was brought into active opera
tion. The melon was cut in two, but
horror to horrors ! inside one half of the
melon was a young &nnke, yellow as a
leek, and about nine inches long! The
half in which he had bis habitation was
nearly all Hollow. 1 The young snake
darted his forked tongue fiercely and
aimlessly about five times, the first durt
he made hitting the forefinger of young
Cofter, who immediately ran off to the
drug store on the corner of Cherry and
Cedar streets", but finding ' no doctor
he hurried up Cedar still further.' ; We
learned afterward that the physician
cut off the first joint of the bitten fin
ger, and "sent the boy home in a hack
telling him it would be all right.
The little snake was caught and put
into a fruit jar, by Whitesides, a butch
er's assistant, who lives out in German
town. It is a most extraordinary freak
of nature, and it seems impossible to
account for how the snake could have
got into the heart of a large and appa
rently sound melon. The part in which
it was, found was thrown violently
against a post by Cofter, : and bruised
aud broken in such a way ' that . it was
impossible to ascertain whether there
were any holes or damaged spots on the
rind. - The case is decidedly uuusual.
