A warrant was Issued' by Justice Bev ridge, of Rouseville, for bis arrest, and placed in tba bands ol Constable Fetterer, for service.

Coostable F. was not dressed very well, and i spoo entering a "free and easy" at tbe op- per end ol tba street, encountered an indi- -idtial wbo undertook to "take blm la lor II St." Tba game proceeded lor a few mo st vats, until officer F. accidentally., discov i d tbat tba would be sbsrper was tbe very m la be wanted, aid It was but tbe work of a moment to "clap tba Irons on bis wrists.''

By tbe following, wbtch we oipy from the Cleveland Herald, it will will be en that tbat city li reaping a Just reward for tbe part her citizens have taken id tbe wlcksd monopoly that sought to ruin tbii region. We pity the poor laborers, and only wish the punishment bad falleo on Rockatelloi, Waring, and olhets of tbat ilk: Judging from a New Yoik dispatch it would seem tbe railroad eoapaoier bad ttbdrawn from tbe geat oil combination. Uniform rates been have established for tbe transportation of oil, and no advantages, either to reduced rates drawbacks, or In auy other way, are to be given to any shipper or combination of shippers. Tbat oeint having been reached, and tbe monopoly of the oil trade effectually prevented. It is to be hoped soma way will soon be found for a settlement af tbe existing difficulties and tbe termination of a quarrel tbat has em barrassed an Important branch of trade, caused already tbe loss of hundreds o' thousands of dollsrs, thrown thousands of persons out of employment lathe winter, and caused suffering and distress in hun dreds of families. Tbe stoppage of tbe refineries here and at other points has caus ed serious loss among the produceis, but tbe heaviest losses have fallen on the re fining points themselves, where tbe branch es of industry connected with tbe oil busi ness were suddenly paralyzed, and bun dreds of families dependent on daily wages for Ibeir daily bread fouad themselves, with out warning, lace to face with want. We have beard pitiable talcs cf distress in this city, caused by tbe sudden and almost sim ultaneous stoppage of tbe reflueries, and tbe worgt, we fear, is yet to some, as on tbe first of April some refineries yet running will extinguish their fires If there is any way In which this quarrel cau be adjusted to tbe satisfaction of al parties, and some employment found for tbe men thrown on their resources, and who are now without any, wa hope it will be adopted without delay. Every 'day adds to the difficulty ot settlement and increases the distress tbat cannot much longer be suffered to exist without danger.

Tbe ".word entered just in front of tbe short ribs of lbs right side and came out opposite, close to tbe spine; and what was most remarkable, ba declared he did not feel its entrance, hut when tbe fel low drew It out it gave blm some pain. He was considered mortally wounded. But neither bleeding nordying, as the surgsons expected, be wa transported to a bo.plta in New Orleans, where in a few months be wss perfectly well. A question came up io tbe circle of surgeons bow ba escaped so miraculously. Scientifically considered, the bowels must bsw been cut through io sev eral places, and arterial twigs lacerated by dozens. The latest Ibt'ory was this, viz., tbat neither intestine nor blood-vessels were wounded.

It Is source of gratification tbat the oil men work so harmoniously and determined ly together, against their common enemy the Southern Improvement Company. When the monopolists attacked tho coal, or lumber, or any other Interest, tbe men en gaged en such business never were all a to combine, but were compelled to snccumb to, wbstever might be required by the soulles corporations. Not so with the oil men.

The sympathies of the mass of tbe people are with the oil producers.. Tbe IUftmao's Journal, pub lished at Clearfield, in speaking al the pre sent excitement says: Tbe South Side Improvement Company, a corporation created by tbe present ore recent Legislature, and, therefore, likely t) involve some clever scheme to enrich lis cor porators, Is creating an Immense excitement in tbe oil regions. Its objects are staled to be "tbe ruin of producer of petroleum, to enforce a reduction in prices, and so enrich Us members," wbo are mostly capitalist and railway officials. Tbe petroleum-inter eat is ooe of tbe largest and most important in Pennsylvania, and it Is to be regretted tbat tbe Legislature instead of protesting nas put It in the power of uuscrupulou meo.

It is a well known tact to oil operators, that upou wells where Gas Pumps are useil It is aecmai-j to preserve as nearly a per fect vacuum as possible, and that no air should h lot into tbe well, at any time, when it can possibly be avoided; consequently, whenever the tubing is drawn tV m a wll it is tbe cause or great injury to it, as tlie siutung box, being then necessarily open ed, tbe air immediately ruabes back between tbe tubing and caatug, Into the well going iuto li e oil rock and gas veins, and eoisequeotly causin. the oil and gas to rush back te a great distance, bo much so, that It almoat always takes several days a.ter pumping Is resumed fur a wel I to be brought back to Its fwrmer condition, and oftentimes It takea several weeks; and quite frequently wells have been almost completely ruined by th air being thus let In while drawing tubing.
