The fee simple of 136 acres, known as the MV.ter Farm." on llig Broken-Rtraw creek, and on txe line of the Philadelphia and Krle llaltroad, one aud a half miles west Of Oailand, Pittsflrld township, Warren county, Pennsyl vania. Tills land la situated In one of the best localities la the neighborhood. It takes In the whole of the valley for ever a mile In exteat, giving a frontage on the Broken-Bu-aw creek of over two miles. It also extends northward over the bluff, and takes In a considerable portion of the Blue Eye Run, a tributary of the Rroken-Htraw. Hrokea-Htraw crock takes Its rise from tlie east side of the bluff, which gives rbe to the oeiebratrd Oil creek, on the west side. It Is navigable from the Cotter Farm to the Allegheny liver, a distance of ten miles, and thus arTnrds facilities for transportation by boat to Pittsburg. As mentlonod bo fore, the Philadelphia .and Erie Railroad runs directly througb the propetty on the bank of the creek, and thus it la brought lu direct communication with the great oil markets, Kew York and Philadelphia. Tho blaifs rise from 400 to COO feet, la some places very abruptly. There Is a dam built across the creek about midway on the pro perty, giving Immense water-power to 0110 of the finest and best-constructed saw-mills In the country. This mill at present saw sCtOO lect of lumbor per dsy w ith one sluglo upright saw. A gang of saws can be added at a small cost, and tho mid be made capable of yielding a revenuo to the (Jvu panyatonce eiual to an ordinary producing well. Tho bluffs abound with pine, hemlock, &c.,in such quantity as to keep the mill running for several years. Jn addi tion to the mill there Is a very substantial aud large frame bouse, several smaller ones, bams, stables, blacksmith shop, carpenter shop, Ac. &c ; In Short, everything that an experience of a twenty years' residence taught the late owner to be necessary. The bottom land on the flat Is good farming land, Is cleared for the purpose, and is from ISO to 300 acres In extent. The farm abounds with eholee spots for drilling, and with facilities for the purpose, such as few other lands possess. The rav ines which Intersect and form breaks be tween and through the hills, and which are favorite locali ties for wells, have flno streams, which will give sufficient w atcr power tu enable the Company to Immediately com mence sinking several wells, thus saving the expense and delay In obtaining engines. A derrick can be built near tho saw mill, and gearing attached, thus making tho mill to answer a double purpose. Tlie "shows "ot oil are equal, and In many places superior and more numerous, to those ob served in what has proved to be the beet localities on Oil creek. About two miles from the farm, over the bluffs, tho JTosmer Oil Company, of Philadelphia, are drilling two ells on the llosmer run, which empties Into the Broken Straw at Garland. These wells are giving the most (.'rati fying evidence of tlie existence of oil in great quanUtles, and have established Its presence in that region beyond a doubt. The Cotter Farm Is situate about ten miles nearly due north 01 the now celebrated Tideouto, on the Allegheny river. 11. The fee simple of 11C7 acres on the North Salmon creek, Tionehta township, Forest county, Pa., just ovar the border of Venango county. This land, as In the ease of the Cotter Farm, takes In the valley as well as the hluiTs on both sides, and Is traversed by numerous ravluoa and Uttle stnams running into the Salmon creek. The evldcnr es of oil cannot be excelled lit fai t, are so marked, and the formation of the land is so favorab.e to the exist ence of ol , that every oU man visiting tke region says : "Salmon crock Is bound to equal the world renowned Oil creek," and the speculating public have shown their faith In It by leasing or buying every ai re or land from this compauy's territory to the mouth of the Creek about tlvo milts as well as up and down the Tlonetta river for several miles. This property Is situate about ten miles east of the Alle gheny river. It abounds with the best description of timber pine, cherry, hemlock, etc., which can be made to yield a handsome revenue to the Company. The development of the country is rapidly progressing. A well is being sunk half a mllo trom the property, two others two miles from It, and the Tlonesta river Is lined with thum on each side for miles one at the mouth of'Nalmon creek, now yielding oil, and all of Ihem giving such Indications while drllllug that have heretofore only accompanied the sinking of the best w ells on OU creek. In addition to tills, the counties sur rounding Forest county north, south, east, aud west, are all yielding oil, and give great strength to the suppo sition that Foreit county Is lu the centre of an Immense basin of oil, underlying that whole region of country, A COMPETENT SUPERINTENDENT, Mr. FRANK O. EVER, who has had four yoiri' expe rience In the business, has been appointed, and has com menced operations on the lands of the Company. A limited number of shares will be sold at the above mentioned subscription price , tlU) per share.whlch will bo AiU paid, and S.'iO,000 applied itiantUtately to the develop, nieut of the property. From the above prospectus It will be seen that the 4,Cotter Farm Oil Company" offers unusual inducements t Hose wishing to Invest tn oil stocks. The extent of the property ow ned br them, over four square miles, the well- known productiveness of tlie snrroundlng region, aud the facilities possessed by tbem for the Immediate develop ment of their territory at not more thau two-thirds the usual coat, warrant the Irlreetnra In asscitlng that tlie 'CotUir Farm Oil Company" wilt soon place Itself among tlie first dividend paying Oil Stock Companies la the auunuj.

One-rbnrth royalty Interest In three acres one hnndrsd and five perrhes of land, being the MofHIntoek Reserve, situated at the Junction of Oil Crei k with Cherry Ron. The leases (M yoarsl are held by onergetlc and re sponsible men. There la a flowing well, struck about tlie 0tb of October, and Is now yielding 140 barrels per day, with a good prospect of a large Increase. There la also a posaping well, yielding over HO barrels.

On this territory there is room for twelve er six teen wells, and, from the character of the leasees, will be developed rapidvy. Ho . J One half acre of ground tn the eentre of the above tract, reserved originally by tbe owner as his roaidenoe, and on which 11 stands. This la a fee simple, but subject to one-fourth of the oil produced from It. The best Judges pronounce this half acre to be at good oil territory as any on the creek, and which the Company expect to deve lop as rapidly as possible forthe benefit of the stockholders. Ko.8. One-third working Interest In three and one-half aerie on Oil Creek, situated further up, adjoining the widow McCllntock's farm, and as favorably located as alos.land 2. On this property there Is a new well, pro ducing 30 barrels or oil daily, and Increasing. Another well In progress of boring, and progressing tatltfactorlly. This properly It susceptible of greater development, and promises to be largely productive. Xo. 4. Two hundred and ten aeres of land In fee simple on Pltiiole Creek, three miles from the Allegheny Hirer, and surrounded with wells, already developed aud success ful. A Urge portion of this farm Is believed to bo good oil territory. No. 6. A valuable tract on Smart's ltun, containing about thirty aeres. This Is regarded as onn of the most desirable regions outside of Oil Creek and Cherry Unn. Bevcral companies bare commenced operations with highly favorable prospects. fo. (. A valuable tract on and near Tubs Run, which empties Into the Allegheny River, on the east side, about one roue above Tlonesta Village. Several ravlnni past through tills property, and there la considerable of good timber on It. No reason w by It should not prove to be good oil territory. No. 7. A valuable tract on Tlonesta creek, lustahove Laeey's Mills, on the left-hand sido of the creek, contain ing abont fifty acres, with at many rods oa tbe ereek. indications for oil very favorable. No. 6. A valuable tract on Tlonesta creek, just above the Inst described, containing about fifty acres, and about fifty rods front on the ereek.

It contains abont twohnndred acres, part well timbered, the balance believed to be good oil territory. No. 10, A valuable tract on and near Pithole Run, abont one mile from the Allegheny river, and nearly opposite the celebrated Pithole Creek, which It now regarded with much favor. This property contains abont twenty-five acres, part well timbered, and there are good reasons for believing they will prove good oil territory. Immediately on going into operation this company wlr be la the receipt of say 60 barrel! o f oil per day, wlilvb at tlO (it Is now selling at $V2), will be a daily Income $i,00, or $10,000 per annum, enubllng the compiuiy make dividends of not less than three per cent per montl on the Invest moot from the beginning, with a good pros pcet of a large increase, It I believed that no oil companv has been formed with more certain prospects of success. Only a limited por tion I tlie stock Is oflercd at $r, as tlie corporators confi dently believe that In a very thort time the stock will be worth much more than par. As the company reUes mainly on the first described property for their present Income, tho following report, tnsile by a committee of gentlemen appointed to make the exumination, Is submitted : Tbe undersigned committee, appointed to examine the property of tlie McClintock Reserve Oil Company, respect fully report 1 hat they navo thoroughly examined the John Mc' lln- fork Reserve, situated at the junction of Oil Creek and Cberrvltun. The property alocated on a beautiful biuff, admirably adapted to boring. There arc six wells finished and In progress. One well, which had been yieldiug about forty barrels dally, had suddehly Increased to one hundred and forty barrels, and was flowing at about this rate on our visit. Another well, represented as yielding seventy live barren, was pumping at tbe rate of eighty to ninety barrels, and the Intelligent superlntendeat aud lease wui sanguine In the expectation that In a thort time It would beeonie a flowing well, and live a much btrger yield. These two wells are but a few weeks old, and have evory Indication of becoming vor j large wellt. Three other wellt are In process of bortnir, and will be finished on or before tlie first of January i and from tbe truncations, we believe they will aU be largely productive. One other well was just commenced, and will be pushed rapidly to completion. Tlie whole of tbe properly, exoept the half acre oa which the homestead stands, has been leased, and is in the lusnds of experienced and energetic men, who wl 1 spare no pains or expense to develop the propertyln tlie best manner, aud In the shortest possible time. The derricks, houses, aagines, tools, etc , are all new, and tlie best of their kind, and In excellent order, giving evidence of the careful tnservlsloii of tbe owners of tho leasee. W e have no doubt that the Company's Interest one fourth royalty now about nfrv-flve barrels perday, which at $10 Is .,-'0, will be greatly Increased by the first of January next i and as the land will admit of twenty wells being bored upon it, a good Idea may be formed of the Immense yield which will result when all are finished. The homestead occupies half an aore from which the Company will receive three-fourthf of the oil If they work It, and which your committee strongly recommends i It would uot be surprising il'lbls interest alone shimld, before the expiration of a year, realize an Income of several hun dred barrels per cay. The entire property consists of a little over four acres, with a superior dweldng and good barn upon It. From Its proximity to Cherry Hon, and Its peculiar location, together w 1th the fact that the property nad not been found lo be atrected by other wells in tbe Immediate neighbor hood, we are led to the conviction that it is one of tlie mast desirable properties ou Oil Creek Tours respectfully, J. 1).
