of last year only 18,000 burrel(,'"hat

nearly three times the corsumption of
last' year. ' lAfilwerJj shipped during
the past five months of 1866. 84,000

In fact,' notwithstanding our " heavy
shipments to'Knrope. the stoexs there
cannot be said to hare much increased
since January first.1 In 'London, on
January first, tho stock was 63,000,
how it la 42,000, a decrease.'' In Ant

78,000. Iluvre and Marseille show a
decrease, alid only In the' North Ger

largr than they wer in the' cem
mencement of this year. ' ;
But the regular mcreas6 of ono-tlnrd
over last year'a consumption will prob
ably bo added thia yeur, an exlraoidi
nary increaso, resulting1 partly from
the stoppage of the i shiilo eil refineries
in England, and partlyr fi-otlr.the fail-
ere of this years rupe-seed crop in
France and Germany. .The-, shale oil
refineries of England . are said to have
turned out last year not less than 500,
000 barrels refined, but were obliged
to atop in consequence of the low price
ofjH iroleum. : Many ol them are broke

The following resolution was, aoopt
at the Republican Convention, July 1
1855, which nominated Salmon P. Chase
for Gorernor of Ohio, and it was re
affirmed at five successive State Con
ventions of that party:
"Resolved, That tho people, who con
stitute tho supreme power in tbe Uni
ted States should guard with jealous
nro the rights of the soveral States as
ndispensiblu Governments. No en
croachment upon their leg'inlaturo or

And this resolution is in their Chica

wa nominated: ' '
