Post Office Visitors, A great many "peculiar people'' call at the postoffice, among whom may be mentioned the follow- ing: Tbe Individual who gets a letter about every six months, but always strug ales to be the Brst at tbe window: the one who regards bis letter as a natural ourloal ly, turning it over and over, viewing it from an uphill and downhill point, as if In astonishment that be should' get one at all; the spruce clerk who gels a dozsu letters for his emnloven, and looks aa wise as though they were all Intended for himself; the Indignant speoimtn who wonders why tbe dace tbe expected letter hasn't come and who holda an earnest colloquy with the postmaster as to tbe probable cause of tbe detention; tbe basblul young man witn faint traces of down upon biscbini who ex Beets a letter from bis sweetheart, and re- Urea in confusionbebig foaobed man who treads en bis neighbor's corns; tbe seedy customer who gets a bill ; for washing and tries to make you tblok it Is a draft;' these, with tbe boob) who waits an hour on tbe curbstone to see who goes In and wbo comes out, are tbe most prominent ol the post- oflloe visitors. A recent wtiter, evidently of tbe male persuasion, In treating of 'the subjeot of the gradual Increase of feminine liberty of ac tion, thinks in time that youog ladies will at least be allowed to do tail tb courting. He pictures the misery w blob every young man Is compelled to andergo during a legu. lar courtship. How be has t eooure tbe sneers of bis companions, tb gossiping bis lady friends, frequently tb Ironical compliments of tils relatives; sad Mnflaltar tag paternal or maternal opposition. Then under tbe new order of thing', tbe advao (age woald be entirely on tbe other side. The writer continues : "Ah! whet a de llgbtful tbing It would be, Hurriedly wait Ing in your mother's parlor, carfutly brush' ed and stripped to tie courted. - To be ten, derly stared at night-alter night, by glr alter girl; to have one's brown, rough band occasionally squeezed, aod to bave oae'sl waist delicately encompassed (of course only after tbe engagement) by some ol tb mos( delicately tapering arms In tbe world!" We notice by our down ilver exchanges that a number of individuals bave been -ar lestedand are at present confined - in tbe Armstrong county jail, charged with stesl- isgoitro glycerine from the Roberts' Petro leum Torpedo Compaoy. we remarksd a few days ago about the robbery ol their magazine at Sbamburg, and now we learn tbe parties are known and that several ar rests will be- made soon. W also learn that several parties residing on Cberrytree Run are auspsoted of belonging to tbe moon light torpedoists as tbey are called, aod we hoar that Icjunotlons ate out and will be served as soon as the parties can be found. Look out lor M- J. Samuels' new adver !Unieut in tomorrow's paper. Tbe editor of tbe Petersburg Progress bts Bsid a visit to tbe Butler oil Held, and gives a part of bis experience as follows : On the Fourth of July, we Visited the Butler oil field; tbe much talked of Eldora do of the oil mon. Tbe land flowiog with grease, and overrun with dead beat. Travell og over the country front St. Pe tersburg toFoxburg, thence to Parker, Ar. gyle, Petrolia, Falrview, Karos City, Mill erstowo nnd Butler; returning passing through Greece City and Bnena Vista; tbeoce to F iirview, Martlnsburg and St. Petersburg. Tbe opinions which we bad previously formed, from the reports from tbe lower dis tricts, were fully confirmed. We found Petrolia overrun with loafers; business Id lerests suffering from t be rapid deolinein Derations In Its vicinity, and every evi dence of decay set plainly before us. Al though tbe place still has life, Its total desertion Is a question of only a very few months. It bas passed tbe tremor of excite, ment, the feverish hurry and worry of firs i development, aod Is now well advanced on the "back track." Falrview, which promised at one time to beeome tbe center of tbe lower region, bas settled down to the conviction . that sbe drew busty conclusions, and "went in for stamps," while bad she considered, solid reason would bave told her that her exist ence as an oil town was a my tb. The Im mense hotel erected bv Major Adams, with a view of accommodating over a thousand and ninety persons, stands tenantless and incomplete, a warning to .the brilliant thinkers who are compelledto go through an abstruse calculation before they can de tannine the distance of the point of their nose from their feces. Fairview is of little consequence other than that it is an old settlement, and will always bave more or less business centering there, not being de pendent upon tbe development for its ex iatence. Kama City preseuts the appearance which ia natural Is a collection of true oil town buildings, and oil town characters. Geo tlemen loafers, brutal buffers, sleek city business men lounging about tbe hotels stove-pipe hats supported by animated mat ter, abangbe nests In full blast, aod tbe usual accompaniments. The developme nt of the territory in Its vicinity is now beeorn log extensive, ana operators appear to nava been inspired with considerable confidence. This Is to be the southern terminus of the Kama City Railroad, connecting with tbe Allegheny Valley road at Parker. Trade ia very dull hereabouts at preae nta Tbia ia mainly due to tbe extremely lew price of oil. Removal. Dr. J. H. Helvley, long en gaged In tbe dental profession io tbia place, baa moved hla office to Oil City, and wit1 hereafter practice hla profession there. Tbe Doctor la a thorough master of bis profes slon, and we lake pleasure in recommend Ing bim to tbe oitizens of Oil City and bope tbey will extend bim a liberal patronage, An attempt waa made a night or two aioee to blow op the Roberta Torpedo mag' azlne near Titusville. Had tbe attempt proved successful the losa of life and proper ty would bave been immense. The soouns diels that would thusjeopardlra their neigh, bora' lives aod property deserve banging from tbe nearest telegraph pole. , we understand tbe board of auditors of tb Watren & Venango Railroad Company were in town yesterday, (or tbe purpose auditing tbe claims of parties owning the land over which the route Is graded. This would sssm to indicate tb completion of tb road down the Creek. , A railroad amaah np occurred on tbe Oil Creek Railroad, near Broctoo, yeaterday,by which tbe engine of Coodoctor Taylor' train waa badly smashed up by a grave1 train baoking Into It. Tbe engine passed through here last evening enroul t tb re pair shops at Oil City. In a recent oase of assault with Intent to kill, lu lodianay it was shown that the aO fray came about from a father Insist Ing on remaining In the room with his dangbtei and her beau.- Tbe jury cleared the youog man. Tab latest f tbe new townsjof tbe off re gion are Modoo City and Mllrertown. Tbe former la represented as- having thirty houses, where but two weeks ago there was nolhlogjbul nature. Ilhaenowttwo drug stores two groceries, two 'hardware stores, tank shop, a hotel and a number of boar ding-bousea. Mrllerstown bas from seventy five to one hundred houses, inoluding hotel that oost $20,000. They bave a new style of building eisr elation In Stamford, Connecticut. Each member pays three dollars a week, and as fast as bouses are ereoted lota are drawn to see wbo shall be tbe possessor. Tbe whole tbing looks to ns like a moral raffle, but It is popular Id Stamford.' So-called "spiritual" phenomena are un dergoing tacit attack In London In tbe pe: formaoce of a certain Herr Dobler. This person does exactly the very same things wbiob the Davenport Brothers did but with out claiming the atsts'Miceof any ttuperna- tural agency. Ills audience site in dark ness Tor about two minutes while be binds himself band aod foot to a obair. Tbe rope is then examined add appears quite fast, tbe knot being between, his bands and Beaming ly so tlubt aa to reodor it Impustible to withdrew tbem. The light is again distin guished he is guarded upon the platform by by two wellkoown members of tbe audience and, suddenly a tambourine flics about tbe room, aod a bell is rung. Other things Herr Dobler does ;wbicb abow that with handa and logs tightly tied be can do more than most people oan accomplish with bands at liberty. He borrows a coat from a spectator puts it beside him on tbe table, the light goes out, Is instantly rekindled; and the coal ia on bis back, bia handa tied as belore; in another daik moment it is off aod thrown to the lender. Tbe lights are ex. lioguisbed, bia bauds Oiled with flour, and in two minutes tbey are found untied with the flour atill remaining in tbem. He ac knowledges tbat tbia ia all mere alight of band. ' If tbe Boston newspapers will continue to impress upon the publio tbat our Fire De partment la worthless (wbicb is not a fact,) and our builders do not understand their business (wbicb is also falsely,) there is a prospect-that rales for insurance will be mora onerous than the income tax. Boston Journal. Ia there any claim too extravagant lor Chicago? It is now putting forth preten sioos as a summer resort and trying to en tice people to visit it merely for pleasure and enjoyment during the heated term. It it does not become more bumble and truth ful, we greatly fear it will bave a heated term of long duration before its wonderful history is complete N. Y. Mail.

New Music. We are iodebted to Messrs, G; D. Russell & Ce,. Music Publishers, 126 Tremont street, Boston, Mass., for tbe fol lowing beautiful pieces of new musio .'Open Wide tbe Golden Door," "There is rest for thee in Glory," "Nora ia Pretty," "'Dancing through tbe Leaves." Messrs. R. & Co., are among tbe most extensive dealers in musioal merobandise in tbe New England States. Among tbe latest works published by tbem Is a nsw and improved method of learning to play on the Piano. Lovers ol music will do well to ssnd for their catalogue of music Red hot today. Oh for a looal Item. The Elevated Railway la to be used In New York by tbe poslofflee to transport tbe mails to and from lbs upper sections ef tbe city. There are to be eighteen malls sent daily eaob way by Ibis Hoe, which, It said, will eensideraby facilitate business, Tbe transportation of the mails between tbe General postofllce and Its out lying stations It" greatly interlered with with by the orowded streets, and consequent slow Iocs)', motion, which this plan will, to a certain extent, relieve. ' The New Bedford Standard bas made an Investigation Into the extent of the recent forest fires In tbat part of Massachusetts, and says. ' Tb ground actually burned over, ss far as we can learn from parties largely interested aud who know tbe woods pretty-well, Is about 8,000 acres." "The handsome managing editor of tbe Cincinnati Enquirer a few" days since plunir ed Into tbe raging Miami canal and pulled out of tbe mud the drowning cook of a pack eL He received ' bia reward. Her fatber wrote: "Yon bave save the gal'i life; she's your'o !" The sditor aforesaid, wants some, body to drewo that g, Tbe will of a Keotuckian, made before bis marriage, and giving all his property to tbe lady wbo became bis wife, bas been success ruly contested by hi legal beirs, It being beld that tbe marriage operated as a revocation, and that tbe widow is entitled to only ooe-tbird. ' It has been decided in St. Louis that tbe laws of Missouri do not reongniio such a thing ss a scout, aud when oue-'gets to wan-' during about In purgatory it must take cars of Itself. The decision was rondered In a care io which tbe relative of a deceased man sued for the sum of $4,000 devisad tor the purpose of praying for massee for the dead man'e soul. The relatives got tbe money and the poor soul has no redress In tbe courts of Missouri. A new sensation has presented itself In Loddon in the shape of the arrival of the great Cape diamond, which baa been Con signed lor sale to Messrs. Pillar Loverson Jk Co., of Gracecburcb street. Tbe weight of this splendid gem is about two hundred car ats, and according to reliable anlbority, it IsJ likely, when cut to be a worthy rival of tbe Kobl-ooor. Be carefal bow you go Ic sleep at an auc tlon. A gentleman settled bimaolf In a comfortable chair, and bis lenses soothed by the auolioneer'e lullaby, soon dropped asleep. When his nap was over be In It the place. Tbe next day he was astounded at the reoeipt of a bill for several hundred dol ars worth of carpets and oilier things Tbe auctioneer bad received bis aomnleulous node for bids. At a balloon ascension at Lafayette, on tbe Fourth, a live bear was taken up. The beast was attached to tbe balloon by har ness, and as he went up and came dowu be uttered tbe most piteous cries. Tbe bal loon went out two squares ana alighted on a root. Tbe bear used his claws to tbe host advantage on tbe shingled roof, but tbe balloon was too powerful for bim, aod it dragged bim into the street, where he fell upon a pile of brick, receiving serious Inju ries. A girl seventeen years old was arrested io Buffalo last Monday, charged with three seperate attempts to burn her omployei's bouse. After denying tbe crime for some time she at last made a full confession, say log that abe only did it "to have a little tun with the folks," aa aba "knew tbey wero badly soared." A no snah nt reraia knows how to say pretty things to ladies, II we are to believe a London journal, wbicb says tbat when k visited Qoeeo Vlotoria, at Windsor be told ber Majesty tbat until then be bad reckoned bis years from the day of his birth, but tbat hs should henceforth daja tbem from tbe hour of bis meeting tbe Queen of Eog- land. Women are never riumofouoded. There is a Brooklyn belle wbo pickles ber bands twice a week to make them white, A Minnesota paper says: "If pitching fish from tbe lakes witb an ordinary tbi lined bayfork is any indication of good fish Iog,;tben we have good flsbing here." Tbe British Koyal Humano Society re, oently awarded their bronze medal to an old gentleman n England, 82 years ef age, wbo courageously plunged into tbe sea to res cue a drowning ohild. Ladies of tbe demi-mosde ia Lexington, Ky.,ere to be incontinently arrested ir tbey ride or drive in any vehicle through the "streets, cemetery, or other publio places" of tbe oity, aod the nice legal question comes up whether the letter ol the ordi oanoe will let tbem ride to the cemetery in a bearae in case of need. The Boston Herald is making odorous'' comparisons. It says tbat soup for tbe poor of Boston last year cost $4,000, and "refreshment" for tbe cily government cost If 1,000, or about $2 60 a day lor each member of tbe Council. Boston must board ber City Ceuooil, and give tbem pret ty good board too, bnt as for her poor, tbey are always on1 hand, aod there ia much philanthropy In $4,000. Walt. VanAusdell a well known chera plon of local option baa invented a new aod Obeap drink, composed almost entirely of water. He bas named it "rataplan. " A starllinf tombstone waa ereoted to the memory of "Tabllbe, beloved wife of Jo ssph Wright, Thomaa Andrews, Eben Hal. sled, Charles Dean and Edwin Murray, by her devoted husband Cyrus Morgan.
