Tl III PVAY, SEPT .2, 18,75 Fajta for Voters. Wo commend the attention of voters to the following: The new Constitution forbids all persons from voting unless they have been assessed at least two months and paid their taxes at least one month before the date of the election. No one of foreign birth can vote unless in addition to the above, he has been unturalizcd a month previous to the lection. The date of holding the next election is Tuesday, November 2d. Friday, October 1st, is the last day lor naturalization papers. From the 1'itlnburg Telegraph. Petroleum. The special report on the petroleum 'of Pennsylvania, its production, trans portation, manufactures and statistics, is oue of the most interesting volumes ever isiucd under State nwspkea. The gen eral details of the history of the diseov- firJlt veif ' ty'Plk Je.JiiAkin ofthe the enormous enterprise in the same direction which followed, the big prices which crude oil commanded in 1864 ($14 per barrel,) and the development, o( the BennehofT, Pioneer, Stevenson, Tidioute, Triumph, Pleasautville and Shamberg oil regions, are tolerably familiar to most of our readers; but the ingenious researches of Lestjuereux, fixing the geological and geographical distribution of petroleum deposits and fucoidal remains, which are published in the pamphlet under notice, would con tain much of novel interest to those who have not investigated the subject. The opinion most firmly maintained is that petroleum is the fossil product of Kolt sea atiimuls and sea vegetable?, and Lesqucrcux illustrates this view in a very captivating and convincing way. At the date of the report, which was prepared last December the tankage of iho oil region amounted to over 3,100, 000 barrels, and the balance of trade was of course disturbed by this great production. The report submits that wc arc producing at a reckless haste, and makes this very suggestive state ment. "When we carefully consider the short life of the best tetritory that has been fouud, how comparatively small is the relative proportion of the actual producing area to the entire re gion, it becomes a serious question even in the lace of tLo cuormous production of to-day, whether we shall in this Com monwealth continue to supply petroleum in the next generation." It is con ceded; though; that American and for eign petroleum ceasu to be obtained, the world would bs amply supplied with shale oil, so that we uced not fear be ing left in utter darkness. The refining capacity of the United States at the date of the report was put ut 40,570 barrels per day, of which Pittsburgh was credited with 0,090 bar rels per day, Cleveland 11,732 burrels per day, tho Oil Region 9,231 barrels per day. As to general hints, facts, etc , in the report, wo notice the statement that the safety of all oil is increased by age. Left stauding undisturbed, the lighter parts pass gradually off, but tho oil will then burn with a dull light. The greater the illuminating power, the greater the danger. Church Run, near Titusv ille yields the best crude of about 4G gravity, yielding a greater percentage oi refined than any other. The oil at Pithole was tho lightest ever found, the gravity reaching in some cases as high as bV. The standard fire test recog nized by Great Britain is greater than that of Germany uud America, but the report says that "the earlier use of the shade pils there has introduced a great number of burning fluids which are ically more dangerous than any petro leum." Tbo predominance which our oil has obtained is due to tho fa 3 1 that it contains a greater proportion of the lighter products than any surface oil found elsewhere. Nature has distilled it for us from the shales and we take directly from the well an equivalent to the first product ol the coal oil still, but containing also a much greater propor tion of those members whicli possess il luminating properties The use of petroleum and its kindred hydrocarbons for the purpose of fuel is treated in the report and ou the ques tion of relative cost as compared with coal an adverse opinion given. Ihis matter, however, is yet in its infancy. Washiugtou, August 21). There was a very heavy raiu storm here to-day, two inches and eighty-oue hundredths having fallen between 7 33 this morn ing and 4.35 this afternoon. The rain at do other point in the United States during the same time exceeded the fourth ot an inch. There is considera ble damage to property all over the city, and particularly on Pennsylvania avenue, caused by water in tee sewers backing up and biting the stores of Drominent business houses, causing heavy destruction of goods stored therein. In the vioinity of the Balti more and Potomao depot the streets were thoroughlyj flooded. J he street railroad tracks were submerged in some places to the depth of more than s loot. Naw York, August 28 At the exe cutive office of the Western Utioo Telegraph Company this afternoon, a reporter ascertained that a committco of that company and of the Atlantic and Pacifio Telegraph Company have effec ted a consolidation in favor of a lease of the property ot the Atlantic and Paci fio Company, subjeot only to ratifica tion by the respective boards of direc tors. The Atlantic and Paoifio has been rited at a capitalization of $2, 500,000 instead of 510,000,000 stock outstanding, but the committee decline to state for the present whether the rental is to be fixed, or graduated on the profits of the Western Union Company. SU.nhy A. Parsons, Jk. A Funeral at Heading llstorbei the Se cern suicide case. On Friday after noun the funeral cf Mrs. Philip Bissinger and ber three children, whoso death by drowning oc curred in Heading on Tuesday, took place from the house of the busbaud and father. Tho utmost excitement prevailed and a very large concourse of pci pie fol lowed the bodies to tho grave, the pro cession comprising over thirty carriages, and not les than 1,000 people on foot. For an hour before the time for the funeral, the house was surrounded by excited people, and the excitement was so great that a dotachment of police kept, guard on the premises. The circumstances attending the death of the mother and children were such as crente the strongest interest, which partake very largely of indigna tion. Philip Bissinger is tho keeper of a saloon on Penn street, in this place, and his family consisted of bimsolf, his wife, a woman of about thirty years, and three small children, a boy and two girls. His mother also made her home with his family. Of late, it is said, there lias been considerable UDhappincss, caused, the neighbors say, by the treat ment of Mis. Bitsingcr by her husband and his motiicf. The report commonly accepted is that Bissinger had bestowed his affections upon an unmarried wjman t-m pluladelt'hia, whom iiilULUl'J' had nl rni aoVou ...... .My accor ded an authority denied his wife. On Monday, as is stated, a quarrel took phce between husband and wife on this account, and he ordered her out ol his sight. He told her lie would give her ?2, 000 to go away, and return no more, she to take the two girls, and be to keep the boy, and he threatened to kill her if she returned. This prospect of separation from one of her children, added to the previous uuhappiness of her position, manifestly preyed upon her mind, and she was very much depressed. On Tuesday, accompanied by her three children, she left the house and entered a street ear in which shj rode out of the city for a distance of about two and a half miles, to a point ou the batik of the canal. She bad a basket with her, and this she pro ceeded to fill with stones, ber children assisting her. Having filled the bas ket, she bound it securely to her waist, and tlun, taking a child under each arm and holding the third child to her breast, she jumped into the canal. The cries of the children attracted the attention ot a man who could not swim, and before he could get help aU were arownea. me bodies were re covered and taken to the undertaker's shop, where they were identified. They weie removed to the house ol the bus- band and lather, and he was notified of the occurrence, receiving the news, it is said while in company with the woman who had caused tho uuhappiness. So great was the indignation among the people at large that a detachment ot police was kept guarding his house from the first uotil after the funeral. It is stated that in the crowd in at tendance not less thau fifty meD, and even womeu, were armed with pistols for the avowed purpose of shooting Bis singer. He was guared by police all the way to the grave and back, and as a further protection the coffin contain ing the little boy's body was placed in the carriage with him. When the bodies had been lowered into tho graves, a part of the crowd hooted ut Bissinger and a number ol women endeavored to get at him. One shot was fired at him without effect. He was instantly hustled into the car riage and driven off. Another shot was fired at him in passing the gate, and is supposed to have struck him as he was carried from the carriage into the house. Great indignation still exists, and lynch law continues to be freely tHlkcd of. JUauch Chunk Coal Gazelle. Mr. Church, the English lockmaker, in whose locks so many of his country men place implicit faith as a protection against thieves, has lately written a book, in which he admits that no locks can resists the efforts of accomplished thieves, and extols the small terrier dog, with a sharp bark, a3 the best possible protection against burglars. Velocipedes have been adopted by the Italian army, and are used for the conveying of dispatches from the various corps to general headquarters. Twenty tales an hour is the speed gen erally attained, and so successful have the experiments been that volooipcdes have been ordered for all the corps o! the army for the use of their several couriers. In July a diver in submarine armor, working at a wreck on tbe coast olJN or mandy, was seizod by a devil fish, whicli held fast to a neighboring rock. His comrade camo to bis assistance, and was seized also. It was only with great difficulty that they could give the signal that tbey needed help. Others went down. Cutlasses were brought and the monster's arms were hewed off. The wheat crop of Minnesota was too much for the young grasshoppers ol 1875, and those pests were obliged to leave growing plauts, which produced about 32,000,000 bushels of grain. The St. Paul J'ioneer Press estimates that of this crop 25,000,000 bushels will be for sale, and that it will bring to the State over $23,0U0,U00, or more than twice as much as was obtained for the crop of 1874. Professor Janney sends forward most interestioK report on the Black Hills exploration. Gold has been found in deposits along the creeks in quan titics sufficient to pay for the investment of capital and labor in scientific mining. There are also traces ot tho precious metal in the foot bills, but tbe work of developing it will be costly and difficult. Notwithstanding these indications, Pro fessor Janney does not consioer the tie posits to be at all equal to those of Cali fornia, but only as sufficient to aid in the population and improvement of the country, for which he principally relies upon its tacuities lor stocs raising and agriculture. The climate is cool and healthy, and probably averages about the same as that oi Maine or a. 11 NEW ADVERTISEMENTS, SHERIFF'S SALES.
