Before being torpedoed the yield was only three or lenr barrels per day. A new well was stiuck near Kane City, t!ay btfore yesterday, which started pump, 'm three barrels dally and Improving. Owned by Gaily Bros. It was to have been torpedoed to-day by Mr. Roaob. From Capk Keller, superintendent of the Watson well, on the tract o( that name, Tarr Ran territory, we learn the well con tinues to yield lull a well as when first struck last wln'er. It is yielding 10 to 12 barrels of oil every day.. It istbe Intention of tbecomniB m.tnb two or three new wells in that vicinity the uummg mi. Quartermaster Air. Myers, of Petersburg, was In town to-day. He re presents tbiogi as being lively at tbe Adams House, and states that bis dally shipment of green btoks from the oil regions, after accounts are all balanced, would almost fill a flour barrel, which yarn takes the shine com pletely cut of tbe California tales or the talking dog.

This rock undoubtedly records tbe history Of many hundred years. Among tbe figuree yon can distinguish a turtle, a snake, an eye, an arrow, a sun. These are symbols or hieroglyphics. They reeord the exploits and illustrious actions of forgotten nations and their battles. Who shall decipher those wondorous characters? Who shall write tbe bleorv of those mlubtv trltes? How muob of thrilling Interest and' romance re mains bidden beneath those luscrlptloosf Where Is )be proud warrior with bis plume, and trophies? Where is tbe patriot that fell, and the conqueror that triumphed and exalted? That stone is sll that commemor etea their greatness and glory. As you look upon tbst bleak bistorio stone, fancy calls up from tbe long uoremembered past, the shout, tbe shock, tbe caruage and tbe deadly strife of tbe victor and tbe vanquish ed, whose glory and disgrace that wondrous stones records. If it bsd been found amidst the ruins of Tadmore or , Persepolic in Greece or Rome, in France or - Britain a thousand scholars would have labored for its Interpretation, and ten thousand strang er would have traveled to heboid tbe Won der. Tbe Indians are nsarly gone. Their last footsteps will soon be washed away forever by tbe resistless waves; yet may that stone, with every other memorial, re main to carry to other times tbe remember auce of tbat slogular people. Our townsman, Mr. Geo. W. Winaor, bas opened a branch of his extamive hardware establishment in this place, at St. Peters burg, Clarion county. Mr. Jas. Mcllwalne, Jong connected with the store in this place in the capacity of book-keeper, takes oharge of tbe brooch establishment. The old-time reputation of Mr. Wlnsor as an honorable and square hardware dealer has preceded him In tbat region, which coupled with the fact tbat tbe store is under tbe charge of so capable a man ss Mr. Mcllwalne, will un doubtedly buildup a good trade for tbe new store. Our readers In tbe "down r v er" territory will find It decidedly to their advantage to deal with Mr. Wlnsor, at St, Petersburg. One hundred yesrs ago tbe following law was In full force in England: "Whosoever shall entice into matrimony any of ye male subjects of Her Majesty by means of ye rouge, white paint, Spanish cotton, steel corsets, crinoline, high heeled shoes, or ye false hips, shall be prosecuted for witchcraft, and ye marriage declared null and void."

Tbe wound bas since festered and swollen, until tbe surgeon has decided to burn tbe fiesh with caustic, and treat It as If It bad been the bite of . mad dog. It Is stated tbat a by was lynched while endeavoring to sell to tbe passengers on one of tbe blockaded Paolfic railroad trains, err, tot of the balltid'-Beaolifnl Snowi GaUaiitry of Pallors. Tbe achievement of tbe United States squadron at Marseilles, France, is causing a good deal of comment abroad. .That city and a thousand merchant ships were actu ally saved from destruction by tbe discip line, skill and Intrepidity of tbe officers aud men. Tbe squadron, consisting of the, Wabaeb, Congress, - Brooklyn,' Plymouth, Shenan doah, Juniata, and Wacbusette, under the command of Admiral Alden, lay in the Na poleon Basin, amid innumerable merchant men of every description and from every nation. Shortly after midnight an explos ion startled tbe city, followed by . fire and dense clouds of heavy smoke, which issued from an Italian ship just arrived from Phila delphia with a cargo of petroleurr. Tbe nature of tbe danger soon becsme evident, and it seemed Impossible to prevent tbe spreading of tbe Ore from ship to ship, as they lay in such a dim, sod a general con flagration seemed Imminent, for tbe bouses extended down to tbe wharf on every aide. No city of France baa tbe means to extin guish a great fire, and bence tbe people gathered, contemplating tbe scene In panics stricken, fascinated horror. Presently a well-manned boat came from tbe part of tbe basin illuminated by tbe blaze and pulled directly toward tbe burn ing sbip. This wss soon followed by an other, then a third, ten, twenty, all tbe boats of tbe American rquadron. A mo ment later men were seen on the deck of the burning ship. Tbe silence of tbe peo ple on shore wss such tbat tbey conld bear, through the smothered rosr and crsckie of tbe Ore, tbe word of command and blows of axes. Tbe people were thinking of the hundreds of barrels of petroleum below and its possible escspe on shore and communica tion to other ships, perhaps others with pe troleum, and in Imagination conceived the whole surrfase of tbe basin covered with blazing oil. Presently tbe burning vesiel began to settle. She bad been scuttled and ber cargo was now under water, tbe deck being level with the surlace. The danger from tbe escape of burning petroleum was still Imminent, when a line of boats lashed together stern and stern, was seen pulling away, and as tbe file traigbteued out tbe burning ship moved also, and was slowly towed out to the bay by over two hundred welUmanned oars. It was only then that an Immense cheer broke from the thousands of people who felt Inexpressible gratitude for tnefr solvation of tbe oity . Louisville rejoioes in tbe possession of a preoooioua lour year oldster, who. be I no placed in a closet by bis lather the other day for disobedience of paternal authority, instead ol crying put bis wits to work to set out. Calling to bis father to come in and see what be bsd found, the unsuspecting paterfamilias walked in, while tbe four year old slipped out and quickly turned the key, leaving him to sweat it out. Presently, the youngster called to hh pa to know if it was hot In there; nor did he let bis prisoner out until be replied in tbe affirmative. Tbe following condensation of tbe Ten Commandments Into ten lines of poetry is to be tount in an old parish register lo Lan caster, Nottinghamshire, England. It was written in 168&: ' Have no other God but me;' Unto no image bow the knee; Take not the name of God lo vain;' Bo not the Sabbath day profane; Honor thy father and mother too; And see tbat tbou no murder do; ' From vile adult'ry keep tbou clean; And steal not tbo' tby stale be mean; Bear no false witnes shun and blot; What is tby neighbor's covet not. . A Kansas city editor Is In a panic Hear him: "They sent home with our wssblog yesterday a thing that branches off In two ways a little below, like a railway junction and bas puckered frills edged with 'letting' on etch end of tbe divide. We don't know what it Is, and we're a poor friendless man, with only our vlrture, aod none but villains would seek to iojure tbat." An anecdote Is related or a young preacbs er, who bad for bis text a verse from the parable of the Ten Virgins; and in the course of his sermon explained, "That In old time it wag customary, when bridegroom and groom were coming, for ten virgins to go out and meet them, and escort them home five or these virgins being male and five females."
