The Oil Wall* of Patin sylvan la.
On Cmy, (Pa.) Venango Co., Aug. 30.
Perennial fountains of oil from the boweis
of the earth! Think of boring tbe ground as
you would a cask or a maple tree, drawing off
cxbauntless supplies of this uuotuoua fluid.—
Surely Ibis is one of the mervsli of the age.
Among tbe moat remarkable terrestrial phe
uomena of which we have any knowledge are
the hot springs of Iceland and the voloauio
eruptions of Italjr and South America,- but tbe
former are uf 00 practical utility exoept to boil
egg», and as for earthquakes, few have
been any "great shake," after ail. In Venen
go County, however, we witness that whioh may
well excite Astonishment. Here are thousands
of acres apparently the orust of an immense
rcservior of oil, representing untold millions of
wealth. Just as tue oetaoeous speoies were
threatened with extinction from the ravages of
tbe harpoon—just as the great 8outbern rebel
lion deprived us of our tar and turpeuUne for
ests—then au ample substitute for these animal
and vegetable products was presented from be
neath our very feet. Instead of spending three
Jears among the ice of the frigid zone to get a
cargo of oil, we have merely to vieil western
Pennsylvania, strike aa auger intoihe earth,
with your harrels ready, and the wliole thing
is dono. Material for illumination, lubrioation,
and endless variety of domeatic and meohan
ioal purposes, is immediately found, in quanli
beyond the chunce of exhaustion. We
need uot distress ourselves by speculating upon
tko danger to tho terrestrial globe whioh pos
sibly threatened, while this enormous maga
sine of combusible matter was left undisturb
ed in the heart of our continent and in
junction with the hugo coul-beds of Pennsyl
vania. Why, here is substance for a confia**
gratiou which might be terrifio ia its conse*
say what meroiful dis
quer.cep, and who
peneation is concealed in the so-called "enter*
prise" which prompte the extraction and remov
al of these subterranean firebands. But enough
of this nonsense.
The great oil reseryior as it might be called,
is in tbe northwestern part of Pennsylvania,
i!y a moderate ride from the Hriu Railroad,
and underlies the whole region on the valley
of Oil Creek from Titusville to Oil City, a die*
tance of eighteen miles.. The auger is also
used with buccess oo tbe lateral branches of
the stream. It should not be inferred from this
that the water courses havo any influenoe in
marking the oil beds—only this, chat the oil la
Hoouer reaohid when wcRb are sunk al the bot
tom of the valleys than from the u^jncent hill
Bides. The int3rvening strata of earth are lees
in (he
thau in the other. In general
appearance, the oountvj olosely resembles
ot the rough l^ris of New England, ib* bot
tom lands fnrbig Inqi out id cultVvai«d
with hemlock, pine and oak forests covering
the lands
elevated. Bigna of oil
parent from tb* dark slimy oots whioh seems
to saturate the ground In many plaoes. Odor*
substantial. indications are observed long be
fore reaohlng tbe spot, in the long trains of
leaded vehicles and acoumutions of greasy look
ing barrels at every depot, and
way-side where
have broken down

fil ike
unfortunate teamster may
met with other accidenta
Ou approaching tho actual soene of operations,
(he faot becomes known by the ourious forest
of hewn sticks, 40 to 60 feet in height, whioh
stud th h whole valley, stretching far away be
yond (be limit of vision. These are explained
to he tbe derrioks used in drilling the wells
and pumping. Every well has one, with
accompanying shanty for the necessary fur
and engine. All the apparatus is of the
most primitive kind, operators being too busy
to experiment with
tbeir first introduction. A walking beam, say
thirty feet in length, oonnects the well with the
engine,
tho drill, while the other is worked by a crunk
visitor, who is determined to learo all
about this wonderful oonntry, at onoe
solves to count these derrioks, but by the time
he has got through with
the different sections of the valley
ed, his mental equilibrium is as muoh disturb
ed as that of the man who wanted to learn the
uumber of brigham Yeung's wives, and began
to count the stookinge
finally turned away, OYeyoome by a sense of
dininesfl. These farms have undergone a sin
gular transformation since the oil discoveries
first made, say three years ago, when they
wei'ö of comparatively little value. Now the
property could not be purchased at any
prioe, the proprietors on Oil Creek consenting
only to le&BQ privileges from five to ten rods
square, retaining a right to reoeive one half
tho oil—like the old system of "working
shares." 1
improvements since
extremity being used to support
•farm," by whioh
designat
the olothee-line, but
Sinking these wolls is often attended with
singular results, a good one often being ruined
by its neighbor, afterward drilled in th* vi
ciniiy; for no sooner is a rich vein struck than
other ambitious borers oroWd as near as their
claims allow, and perhaps intercept the flow.—
For example, tbe Woodruff Well was the best
flowing on Tar Farm, being 000 feet in depth,
and at first yielded 2,500 barrels a day; but
•be glorious prospects were soon dissipa ed, for
the Philips Well was afterward sunk within
five rods, slopping the flow entirely. Fortu
nately for the former, both would not flow at
the a t ue time, so the two parties interested
compelled to compromise, by whioh
of the wells was stopped and (he proceeds of
the other divided.
There are very few flowing wells, probably
not more than twenty or thirty on Oil Creek,
though there are umny small ones, equal to
from five to ten barrels per day, but which
puuq from forty to fifty *from Mie same orifioe.
Most wells stop flowing soon aft*? they are
opened; then the owners resort to pumping,
though there 19 one well on Tar Farm which
has yielded steadily very near thirty barrels
per day sinoe the first disoovery, thrre years ago,
wrihout artificial assistance.
The enormous tanks f cnervlug the oil
till it is ready for shipment, of themselves form
a conspicuous object in the landsoipc. At the
Noble Well alone no les» than five acres
covered by them. The tanks are circular cis
terns of plsnk, capable of hoMlog 100 to 600
barrels èaob, and so oonneoted like a set o^
Leyden jxrt'that
tlfrougfr a long Beiles. The water, whioh al
wftya accompanies the oil In greater
qffantllie«, encapea through vents at the bot
drawu off
oaff overflow into another
, while the valuable contente
by means of faucats at pleaaur*.
The barrels are raoeily mode c
ths spot. »»
uxteuoiye cooper »hops are In operation all j
ale 1 g the creek.
For fual in Ur« flsroaoc«, wood and ooal are
used, though lu numéro us
lag from the wells furnish os
he only requisite being a few iovertod barrels
to not m receiver*, while pipes conduct the gas
to the better. Of coarse every precaution is
UkgD to prevent are communicating with (be
«relia, eegArs, matches,.£0., being stringently
«xoluded. Otherwise terrible expbslons would
the gas esoap
ample supply,
ABiue. . ^
The oil eaeitement r«^4 high all through this
region, parcels of resl estate frequently changing
hands at a hieb yaloatjjp: but in tbe estimation
vf those oonosraed all tflüfla but e valnt premoni-
tion of what Is te camv.MlIte present production
of eil is estimated at 7.000 barrels per day, and
from present appearances th* large number of
wells going into operation Will enhanoe
tori all y this aggregate. The Sherman Well
the Foster Farm, the JefSty Well and tbe Phillips
Well on the Tar Farm are producing from 400
te 600 barrels per day. A new well recently
struck oil on Cherry Ruu L a small tributary or Oil

"Thou Abt thb Mar 1 "—The Editor of the
Indianapolis Journal, the central organ of the
Indtaua Republicans, says ;
If the Demooratio party of 1860 had exhib
ited the nerve and resolution of Jackson, whom
it professed to so muoh revere, and said to tho
Southern conspirator«, we will defend the Con
stitution and aid the President in putting down
by foroe, any resistsnoe to the laws and Oov
ernment of the United States, we should have
war. It was by ioduoing the Southern
people to believe that there would be no oppoai
offered by the Governmeut of the United
States to the withdraw tl of the Slave Slates
from tbe Union, and the establishment by them
of a separate Government, that they succeeded
in carrying those States into tbe sahexne of se
cession with its consequent calamities.
No doubt the Editor of the Indianpolii Jour
nal, when he O-mtemplates thismythioal charge
against tbe Democracy, feels as indignant as
David felt when Nathan told him tbe parable

Thus saitb the reoord. Now, what has this

people must do. And thus much they will do.
