The neology ot Petroleum.
Now Chlcagn night become the great
center ol tho petroleum trade, for there's
ijrcase enough there, If it was oome-at able.
Dr. Hunt, tbo distinguished Canadian
neoloirtt, read a paper at tho American
Selenlilio Association In Troy, wherein he
proves petroleum to be indigenous to certain
limestones, not however, entering Into
them, as is sometimes staled, by distillation
from neighboring schists; tbeso schists have
not been subjected to great beat, and the
petroleum limestone olten lies far below
ditch formations. The oil is usually found
in patches and bands, with strata above
and below containing no oil. The oil is
iterineiically scaled in the pores ot the lime
stone and escapes only on lines of disturb
ance, again accumulating in figures -or on
overlying strata. Near Chicago there is
trap limestone of the Niagara formation, 35
to 40 reel thick, Ailed with oil and really
containing nearly half lis weight In oil;
every square mile has 7;4 million barrels
of real petroleum. As Pennsylvania In ten
years yielded 28,000,000 barrels of oil, it
follows that within four square miles of tbe
Chicago limestone there is more oil than
has been obtaioed altogether in ten years in
Pennsylvania. However, tbls oil is not
obtainable, as It does not appear wilh pools
that force It out in spouts in other places
where Its collection has been a success.
Tho whole secret is that heat is vitally
necessary to tbe separation ol oilaud lis
.I'norbent rocks. In relation to this sub'
ject, Prof. Newberry bore testimony to the
general accuracy of tbe conclusion ol I)r
aunt, but bis experience warned biui to
regard limestone as by no means tbe only
ource of oil in fuctslrutihVd bitiimiuoas
shales, that so largely abound with pole
ioio rack holds oil and yield It liberally.
come of this in Pennsylvania, too, is of un
questionable animal origin. It that Slate
bituminous shales underlie all tbe produc
tive oil wells, separated hundreds ofleet
from tbe limestone, wbicb is besides luiper.
vious. These sbalus yield oil spontaneous
ly, and over all of them are sandjtunes
allowing eisy csc tpe. Tbe practical work
of oil-getting is largely indeliied lo these
investigations for success in boring, end tbe
present discoveries are no less important
ban preceding ones. Continuing this In
teresting discussion, Dr. Hall, tbe eminent
geologist of our Stale, averred, that two bun
dred miles of limestone, of tbe Niagara
group in Ibis Statu, upon being tested,
yielded drops of petroleum, und when expos
ed lo beat the oil would run out in streams.
A specimen from Block Creek, now in Ibe
State Museum at Albany, has been drip
ping with petroleum for thirty yeais. ,
'rum tbe Marcellus shale, and tbut of Gen-
easee. 1'ortugo and (Jliemung, there are
constant emissions ol inhamable gas in pro
digious quantities and an escape ul pelro-
en in in small quantities. In none ol these'
localities, however, are tbeie any produc
tive oil wullg Tbe outcrop is neurly on a
plane, or without undulations or apex, and
on tuis account tbe Jjoctor bad always dis
couraged boring wells along these oil bills,
tbu.ugb It is certain that, bad tbe country
originally been disturbed, so as to produce
some iuterolivial flexures, where ibe slowly
ooziug oil could have accumulated, there
would now be numberless productive wolls
iu that part of tbe State.
Tbe Stanton (Va.) Spectator gives tbe
particulars or tbe horrible death of two
young girls, caused by tbe explosion or ker
osene oil. The victims wero daughters of
Mr. Edward Heiser, residing several miles
west of Cburchvllle. One or two circum.
stances connected with this sad affair are
worthy or note. The cider alone was
burned by the explosion, and tbe flames
were communicated to the younger while
fying lo save her sister. Tbe younger af
tor proceeding somn distance in the direc
lion In which they ran, her clothes being
almost, it not wholly, burnt Irom bor body,
returned to the bouse to tirocure a rlress.

Mail steamers. Both parties are cutting

for the same kind ot freight. Compeliiioti
is so lively tbat it costs less to send freight
