A long aooount of tbe Oil Wells in tbe Kanawha Valley, Va., is published in the N. Y. World, trom which we extract tbe following : Beeare a well is soak, a spot is chesen on which to commence work. This location is de termined by the dip of rock, course of stream, burst of upheaval, concentration of ravines, a 3-1 other nwrts governing oil men, the failures and successes ef others being of great benefit in mak ing seleotions of tpots for wells. A derrick, resembling the frame of an old-fisaioned church steeple, it erected over the ipot choseo. This derrick is about 40 feet high, 10 feet tquare at the base, aod tspenng to four or five feet at the top. where a pully-Mock is aSxed, through which rues a rope to work the drill and haal up ibe baring tocls, rand-pump (s tube or pump which is used to clean out the chips from the bole made by tbe drill 1, tubes, rods, ke., used in sinking or working the weU. A long box, about eight inche square is then put down till the lower rnJ rests on the bed rock, be it one or 50 feet. This box is called a conductor, and its use to steady the drill which works np and down inside of it. The cost of erecting a derrick is from SfiO to ;S6, according to its height or plainness; and the work is done by almost any man acquainted with tbe use of carpenter's tools. The conductor costs from $15 to $30 according te tbe depth at which the bed rock is reached. Tbe drill it a heavy iron chisel with rounded and sharpened end. It is about three feet Vang and weighs from 70 to 100 pounds. It is worked up and down by means of a rod or rope attached to the upper end. This chisel Is followed bv a reamer, made like the drill, except the end Is tquare. It breaks down the little irregular jultingt of rock left by tbe drill. The reamer is followed by the sand pomp, which cleans out tbe debris. To work the drill and other tools necessary to sink a well, epring.po'rt (resembling an old-fashioeed well-tseep) are sometimes u.eu. Spring poles are cheapen, than engines at first, but not as good. Tbe relative cost of boring is as follows : With spring poles S3 to St per foot Engine ?2 60 to $8 76 per foot. This is tbe price paid to men who take the con tract to sink Ihe well, the employer finding the tools, and if tbe work be done by an engine, the fuel ami oil to work tbe same. 1 his price include the cleaning out of the well acd putting in tbe tubing, but not the cost thereof, which is about 60 cents a loot. The range of price is governed by the depth of the we!L In this section oil is found at the depth (average) of 210 feet A twelve horse power engine costs, delivered on the ground ready for work here, about two tbouKand four hundred dollars; a set of tools complete, three hundred and seventy-five dollars. From the above flrures. men will see how much it costs to sink a welL Tanks cost about two hundred dollars, but this expense need not be incurred till the oil is reached. The building over the engine to protect it from rain and storms, costs about three hundred dollars. The barrels are furnished by tbo refiner, who takes the oil from tbe tank, pays his own cost of trans portation, barreling, c, acd keeps yoa sup plied wits empty barrels. This tares the ques tion of transporUtica to parties owning cr op erating wcus. We arc often asked how fast a mas can bore, or how many feet a well is sunk In a day, Tha answer depends os clrcusatartees acccrdisg to the nature of the rock. Some dayrthe drill will cuka fifteeaor twenty feet; again, ft will poowT all day and cot paetrate mere than twenty inches. The average is about ehfSet kdir. The best clxa is to vnwkfrwo son nf , men, from twelve to twelve, and wuhoot'swp ping, drive dawn as tstt as7 possible; tm the oil I ts reached, ' As next1 'asTwe can learn, there will be put down fa Western Vh-gmra thir season at lent two thousand oil, Welti.
