Gold at 1 p. in. 107 Petroleum Centra looks very quiet. Trav eling troupei inldotn stop here. Tbe bill boards are used by Messrs. Sheriff, Consta ble & Co., lor tbeir day entertainment. Tbe above notice we ollp from tbe Titus vllle Herald ol Saturday morolng, written by Uncle William, In bis note from tbal City to Irvineton. We are quiet, but does that excuse the faot of Tltusvllle's fate. Let Uoele Wll Ham' give ut a few notes about bis own place, its deserted streets, Its. faded and worn appearance, or as a reoeot visitor to that village expressed himself 'I (eel like one who treads alone Some banquet hall deserted, Whose I jots bave fled, Whose garlands dead, And all but be (Uncle William) de parted." i The sheriff using the bill boards. That Is good coming from a cltlzn and paper o Titusville, whose bill boards, fences and bouses are literally covered with sheriffs' eales, and whose citizens, II reports are true, are distressed far greater than those ol their neighbors te get tbe wberewitb to make ends meet. Traveling troupes "seldom stop here."- If Uncle William means thealrloal troupes, we say lhauk tbe stars that they keep away from us as It leaves that muob more money with us to pull through tbe hard times, that Titusville does not feel (T). We bave bad some troupes here this sum mer and fall, and without an exception, Ibey bave had better bouses here aod re- umveu more money man they look to at litusvllle, with half the expense. In fact what Ibey took in here bad to belp make what they were out of pocket at tbe city of huge pretensions at least we have the ipse uixu oi their agents for saying so. . roasiniy uncle William bas no rofereosl to thealrloal troupes, but to those troupes uirmu iuuub, wnose Clothes were unpaid for, that used to stop off bere from Titusville, and visit tbe "buzzlog kens," too dance bouses and dead falls at the up. per end of Washington street, aod although we do not miss Ihem, they seldom stop bete now, for that part of tbe Centre looks quiet the denizens having as a general thing moved lo Titusville in order to save the troupes" tbe expeose of coming down. Did Unole William ever belong to Ibis troupe. Au revolr, William. Stoddar.1 played lo a small bouse on Sat urday evening. It was one ol tbe best theatrical entertainments ever performed at the Opera House. Cou rler. IT no. I- h. win, . N A laige force ol workmen are engaged iu laylug a pipe line from Titusville to Oil City. Tbe line Is an extension ol the Pennsylvania Transportation Company's line, nod Is lo connect at Oil City witb tbe Vandergrllt & Form an lioe to. the Butler oil fields. Tbe pipe takes tbe line or tbe Warreo & Venango Railroad, and the pipe is nearly completed from Titusville to tbis place. The Chinese laborers In Cuba tiobject to bulog paid lo paper.

Twins, singly. like misfortunes, never come A man named Foster was arrested in this city on Saturday, on susplolon ol bis beiog the murderer ol Williams, who was sliot near Oil City last Friday. He was sein to start away with the colored mm, but could not be found alter the body had been ills covered. Detective Tom furlong, or U 1 City, suspecting foul play", started In search ofbim. He was traced lo Peiro'enm Cen Ire, where he bad said William's sun, wbicb he bad changed lor bis own. From there he came to Titiisvillle where he was found and arrested. A number of articles weie lo bis possession which were Identified as be longing to tbe murdered man, and are Strong, circumslantioal evidence against bim. The prisoner was sent to Oil City to await trial Titusville Herald. Tbe prisoner's right name is Charles Lar ribee, bis step father being named Foster, a well known resident of Funkville and Pio near. Larrlbee is well known nere as a hard customer. Tbe examination is not concluded as yet. Tbe testimony so far is of a damaging nature !'. Larrihee Judging Irom a view woicb we bad last night, we should tbiok that "rheumatism lo tbe hair" would be tbe prevailing dis ease to-day. Somebody evidenlty thought he bad got into tbe wrong bouse, sad it took a heap of argument to convince bim lo tbe contrary. And then again somebody wanted to get Into tbe bouse, and we should judge he weul In by the window. People who went to bed early woke up aod though mass meeting was being held oo tbe side walk. It ain't often the prodigal returns, we know, but don't get too enthusiastic; don't get out on tbe street to discuss prob lems of polioal economy lo tbe night; don't tear folk's clothes; above all don't throw your tor a clothes away tut you nave emptied tbe pockets, aod don't let your party get scattered so that you bave to ca tor them so loud.

He then made bis escape, aod tbe officials have bei n uoable to find any trace of bim. It was ooiy a week ago 'bat another convict escaped by jumping over tbe wall. Bucks oounly can const of a model jail building.

There Is an air Of flesolnt'on, a Badness that pervades the dreary prospect. Ascending Mount uagmo. we obtain a panoramic vlewot tbe etljicent enunirw. Here anil mere in toe ubwuw we discrv a miserable hovel built among the ruins of the citv. and few wretobed Inhabitants gathering B S. lo tin cups, yellow dogs with their ears cut off, snd tin rans to tbeir tails prowling about. Uoves, more soiled than that wbicb Noah liberated tne Ark, hover at times over the city of tbeir former congregation, while hostile saloon keepers have converted tbeir spa cious gardens into cock-pits. We again enter the city, and observe ono or two dee ceadanteof n.rtid chiefs selling oicknacka. Our heart fails us when we attempt to des cribe Hie suHerinis, the distress, tbe wars, tbe beer bottle fights, the thefts, and gen ttrul deinoralfzttioo which bas since time iinuiorial been coosumullng tbe destruction ot this historic city, and we sadly return by wuy of the ball-way bouse, lo civ'lzition. WHICH t Ca'led to our attention, a few days sine was a very curious fact, and one too, on wi'icb much information can be vouch safed if those imeiesled were so disposed The aiiHStiou is tbis: "How is it that a few mogliia ago Ibere was a cry ef over-prudnc lion, with no tankage at all, while at tbe present writing Ibete Is tbe same cry that the daily production is in excess ol the de maud, snd yet no one thinks of saying that there is not doubt e ibe tankage necessary fur all Ibe oil prouduced? Why is It that when 23UOO barrels of oil par diem Oiled all tbe tMiks in tbe county, that 30,000 barrels tbe amount stated by so-called reporters, does not locoovenience any one? Vt'bile no one asserts that there has beeo a parti cle more tankage erected than bas been takeu down?" Aiiaiu we are asked: ''Are not the d if ferenl Pipe Lines concentrating tbeir en. eries to bear tbe markeis?
