Frenob Creek is impaspable except to foot

Freuch Creek at tbis lime ol year could
only occur under tbe direction of public

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
