It is by far the nicest lolllal paper ever brought to this place. The ladies are f especially Invited to eall in and examine It. It is neat and nobby. " . i Speakiug cf lb business prospect of St. Petersburg a well as tba other seolloo ol the oil ronton, the Piogress truthfully says: During the past lew days biiBlneas has been eery dull, and every one baa begun to feel the depression resulting from dollar and a quarter oil. Every one is more or less off 'Cti'd and bis depression la in exact pro portion to bis connection with the oil bus) ness. Probably the moat severe suffereis at the present time are tba hardware dealers, wboare compelled to ourry a Urge slock o' good, and flud that they have tbern oo band, there beiog oo demapd; or if there is any at all, time is askod, and in moat cases much more tbao tbey eao receive from tbe manufacturers. Tank men are alto suffer lag severely, because, although tbeyjare Compelled to put up the tanks oeoesaary at Che oew wells beiog struck every few days, In keep their trade, tbey Bud tt almost im. possible to make any ool lections whatever, and are in consequence r behind, a a rule. General business men also complain Of the oloseness of money natters, and it is generally expeoted that within ten days times will become exceedtugly bard. It is to be hoped that oil will drop to Oily cents out, and rinain at that pnoe a few weeks or memos, and thus close oat the Arms that have been overstocking I be market, and mndoring every kind of Investment uosale. After the reaction occurs times will improve, sud oil will tell for Uokhy instead of for KOTUINU. Several small wells hereabouts have re ceo iky bean shut down. Peter Kiuaey, our efllsleot eight watcb mn, received a telegram from Lawrence bmy, yesterday, accompanied with a re quest for bjm to go oa duly as night watch man at that place. Peler sent back a din patch drcliolog lbs oiler. Tbat' where be was right. OH Creek is low, sud su is oil.

" A strange story, and one entirely appro priate to tbe season, is laid by e correspnm sntoflbe New York World who writes from Moscow. It involves tbe adventures of a Russian named Cberitoo, who escaped from tbe mines orSilaris, afier having sert. ed lour of a term of twenty years, for smug gllog. After bis escape Cberiton lived for a time with a tribe of Lungouaas; but as tbey threatened to return him to captivity be escaped from tbern aod wandered Into tbe wildernees of the Altai mountains. Hera winter overlook him and be suffered terribly from tbe culd; but he killed some fur-bearing animate, feasted oa tbeir flesh and clothed himself with their skin sewing them together wltb sinews. Ilere be ob served large numbers of beasts of various kinds moving io tbe same diteotion, as if migrating, aod following tbeir lead be came to a past la the mounts n, 1 joking dowo from which be saw below a beautilul valley, abut io on all side by lofty mountain ran ges. The depth of tba valley was so great tbat be thought It must be even below tbe sea level. In tbe ceotre a beautiful lake. Descending Into the valley, he slept for tbe first night on a bed ot soft mots frea from snow, and the next day be found thejair so mild tbat bis fur garments were oppressive. Surrounding tbe lake, but some distance above It, was a level plateau well wooded, crossed by numerous streams. Game was abundant, and so tame were the creatures, both ol strange aod lamiliar species, tbat tbe fugitive was sure tbat tbey bad never seen a human being in tbeir valley. One nlgbt be was terrified by various uncouth nobes and buga and monstrous shapes. Tbe next day be sought lor a place ol safe ty, aod while exploring a cava he found a mammoth, alive and la vigorous health. Tbe discovery ol Ibis beast, heretofore sup posed Io be extinct, is described as lollows : e entered with some precautioos, for tbe rocky pat emeut was worn a if by use, aod witbio be; beard a slow, measured move ment, a of ao eulmal gently ruminating, ani heavily breathing, wltb greV, calm in spiration and expirations like the ' sigb ol a smith's bellow. One turn, then another, be beard a heavy, startling snort, and there la the half ligbt ol tba oave, stand log lul before blm, alive, chewing tba cud, and waving Its proboioi to and Iro with a slow, gentle, mejestio motion, be saw mammoth. Cberitoo describes the mammoth as beiog a very imposing-looking animal, covered with ' reddisb-browo wool aod long blaok hair. During bis slay io tbe valley ba was close U five ol them, all ol which were nearly ol a size, beiog about twelve feet bigb, eight een feet long, wltb tuaks projeotlog about lour feet, aud being eight to teo feet, count- log tbe curve. Tbe sklo, which was bare oo tbe upper surface of the ears, oo tbe knee and rump, was of a mouse color, and seemed very tnicK. The aoimal was noc turnal in its habits, frequenting oanes or forest depths by day, and feed log at night sad early morning. Cberitoo thinks there might be some fifteen or twenty of there monsters lo tu valley altogether, but thai all tbese are aged, aod tbat very few are bora nowaday. At any rata be saw none tbat had tba least appearance of being young. Tbey were very peaceable aolmalti torpid aod sluggish a old oxen, never die; turbing Cberiton, nor indoeed taking much notice of him. This lortuoate explorer fouod also other animal not knowo to exist elsewhere, of some of wblob these tbiogs are told: Io the course of bis exploration he en countered many animals indigenous to lb" valley, which be things are not knowo lo exiat elsewhere, except in tbe shape of foealj remains. Among these was a speoies of horse, a wild aud beautilul orealute, that went in droves aod ran with lightning-like speed. Tbese borses were small, pure white io color, with long black mane and tail. Tbey were covered, however, rather with fleece lhao hair, aod in ruoolog looked a much like lambs as borses. The lake was full offish ot many species, but was inhabit ed by a mocster of which Cberitoo was ia constant dread, a sort of saurophidlan, which ha described as being thirty reel long and armed wilo scales aud borrible fangs This monster be never saw but tbe on e was master ot tbe lake, and lived.by devour ing the animals wbicb came by night to its brink to drink.' Cberitoo gives a graphic and exciting description of a contest which ba wiloessed one morning at early dawn. be tween this crocodile-serpent aod one ol tbe mastodons. The battle, wbiob lasted mora than ao hour, euded.io tbe discomfiture if tbe mammoth, wbicb could barely limp aray after having been constricted in the serpent's folds. After a timo Cberiton made bii'eeoape from tbe mysterious valley aod gave himself up, aud to bis great joy tbe iuteresl oreated by a relation of bis adventures accomplish ed his pardon. We need hardly add tbat there is to be a book, and tbat it will be one ot tbe extraordinary kind.
