The French Creek Itlockarfc. Tbe Venango Spectator very appropriate ly pays lis respects to those venerable mum' miea, the County Commissioners, alter the following fashion. Tbey deserve . it and much more: ' , . Tbe great blunder of the County CommiS' sioners In putting off tho building ol tbe lower Frenob Creek bridge and neglecting the upper one ooe until the aeasonjof storms and high. water was close upon lis, la now apparent to everyboby and a serious datrl moot to tie busioess of the city. While teams could lord the creek tb lack of the bridges was not so apparent, but to-day Frenob Creek is impaspable except to foot passengers. Suob a state of things In a town like this could only exist by tbe gros sest mismanagement or unusual stupidity. It would never have happened In tbe case or private individuals; it wbould have been Impossible under tbe management of a rail road corporation, or an loorpated bridge Oampany, because In any of , these cises tbe men chosen to attend to such business would r ave been selected because tbey were fit for e place. Such bundling as a blockade o 1 Freuch Creek at tbis lime ol year could only occur under tbe direction of public officers, nominated and elected under the present system, without any regnrd to busi ness qualifications or any qualifications whatever. Charity leads bs to place this contlruction upon the neglect ot tbe County Commissioners. Tbelr ofllce Is one renuir ing first-class business capacity: and if, in Connection witb it, tbe magnitude ol the duties to be performed is too large for tbem, tbe fault is wilb the people who put such burdens upon snob men more than with tne men themselves. An Ottawa dispatch says tbe Royal Com missioners In their report decline to avail themselves of tbe permission given to ex press soy opinion of the evidence regarding tbe Pacifio Railroad scandal. Considerable credit Is due Mr. Tbomas MoHugh, for the care taken by bim of tbe unfortunate stranger whose death is an nounced elsewhere. Mr. Mcll. took bim in and oared for bim when uo other place oould be found to take bim in. Try a dish of those shell oysters at Snow- den & I'ugb's. Quartermaster All. Myers, of St. Peters burg, was in town today. Tho same jolly good natured fellow as or yore. This morning a singular looking craft pased down the Creek. It coutained the worldly effects of some individual wbo was taking bis family west. The craft ran aground a short distance above the Hubert bridge, but through tbe exertions of Jim Meloney, the well known cartman, it was set afloat and tbe man went on Ills way west rejoicing. Oil Looking Up. A crisis In tho oil business appears to have been reaohed and safely passed. There bas of late been such an exiraodinary falling off In tbe production of oil, that the present yield is hardly up to the actual consumption, and everything predicts a rise io tbe great staple, and a Suanclal cbango for the better in that ex- eusive region with whose prosperity the Oilizens ol our country ere so olosely con nected. Nothing but Ibe immense wealth previously accumulated in tbe oil regions, backed up by indomitable courage and en terprise oould have given the business men of the dll regions the bottom to wilhstoad the pressvre of such bard times as for over a year tbey have experienoue. Wo rejoice that they begin to soo daylight. James town Jaurnal. The Scrantou Republican says: '-In sev. erlwards of Scranlon samll-pox ss again making its appearance in a virulent form."
