J - .J ueaaga mentis, l win. witn your Indulgence, introduce you to this, the met wonderful city on the Western Continent. And here permit mo to remark, in the Inception of my article, that I am not In the least afflict ed with that intolerable confaeion, known as Oil on the brain," or "Pithole on the brain," but merely came here last week, on a hasty visit, to "see the Elephant," as tbe bovs have it. Pithole City Is distant from Tltoiville eleven mils. i situated on Pithole CroeV. sbout Ave miles from ft, confluence with the Alleghany River, aud is proving to' be tbe most business place in tho State. ' The re cent development of oil In this locality!, already more successful tban in any section on Oil Creek, and it bids fair to prove the great centor of the Oil Region. Operators are very suppessful In boring for oil, not yet boving "struck dry bole, ai trie par lance i, among oil men. All teem lo prove successful wells. The U. S. Well, with ibe 'Twin Wells. No, 1 and 2, belong to tho U. 8. Petroleum Co., and were the first struck. The U. 8. Well is now flowing 800 barrets per day; Twin Wells, about 500 each; tbe Homestead Well was next struck, and it flowing 000 barrels per day; the Morehcad Well is flowing 300 barrels, and going rapidly. There are a number of others not to fully dovelopod. that are flow ing various amounts, from 50 lo 300 barrels. New wells are being struck every day, with tbe best of prospects.

But Pithole is finally reached, and we are at onoe craztd with tho incetianl clang of hammers and taw,. Ifo one ever saw tbe like before. A city, with its ihoutaodt, has sprung up, like a mushroom, almost in a night! It it now iota man two monim unco tbo permanent boiling, wore commenced, and now most every department of businei, found in largo cities, is here represented. A Post Office ws, established last week. Last Sabbalb, I had tbe pleasure of lis tening to three very excellent sermons by Revs. Morse and Sleadman. from Oil Cily. Rev. Morse loprosenl, the Presbyterian or der, and Rev. Sttadman tbe Methodist. Tbeir mittion bere is to preach, and procure the erection of two commodious churches, which promises now to be truly successful. People do business bere in ao off baud, careless way, aod.if tbe churches go up, like tho hotols and boarding bouses, in a very brief time roligious service, will be hold in Ibe new buildings erected for God's wor ship. Tbe meotiog was held in the base ment story ot ao onnuisoea noiei, wo;co was filled with as intelligent and neat-look, log ladies and gentlemen, (for there were quite a sprinkling of ladies,) as I ever saw. Mr. Morse preached in tbe forenoon, and Mr, Bteadman in tbeaftelnoon aod evening. Tbe Sabbath waa remarkably well observed for tbe place; do hammers aod saws were beard, no engines were running within bear ing distance, wbeo, but a few days since.ibe tbe streets were literally blockaded with gamblers' tables of various kinds, aod tbe Babbatb seemed unknown. Nothing but tbe oharacteris lo features of uncivilized so ciety were visible. ' But, wbeo it was an nounced that "God was knowo," even io Ibe heart of Pithole, aod that proper services would be bold lo some boildiog during tbe day, all teomgd. impressed to observe tbo "boly injunctions, and forget, if possible. lor ooe day, the u.ty niammon.imt teem, to bo excluding all In teres it in Eternity, The hotel accommodations aro abundant for all who may como.

New Zealand. Tbit remote of all tbe British colonies Is fait rising in import unco, aod will soon lake us place among the energetic. Eoglisb- speaking communities of tbe world, and ul timately become an indepondeot nation. Tbe aboriginal inhabitants aro computed at from seventy five to a hundred thousand. Although savagos, and uotil late year, can nibals, wbicbsome of them are still, as thev showed a few weeks ago, they are more en- ergetio man the avetage of tbo iitanaots ot the Pacific, as some or tbem aro yielding to ibe influences of Christian civilisation, r -i New Zealand ocosisis of two adjacent islands, divided by Cook's Strait, and uni tedly are a little larger than Great Britian. The northern island is fertile, heavily tim bered, in some parts mouotaioous, and bai numerous fine harbors, eipooiaily on tbe western coast. By far tbe larger enumherof tba natives are found on this Island. On tbe Southern Island a lofty mountain range skirts tbewesiorn coast, as Ihe Andes do in South America. Between that range and tbe eastern coast there are extensive gratty plaint, only broken by numerous streams. Tbeso plains, as ibey am described, re semble our western prairies.., Thero are several English settlements or colonies on both islaods; aod although tbe colooists bave bad considerable trouble and some war with the oiaones(as mo aborigi nes aro called) they are prospering finely. But the recent discovery of gold. along the ttreams which ittue from the mountain! it attracnog thouiands from . Australia ana alio from England. This, combined with the rich soil and fine climate, will soon change New Zealand from a savage and almost uokuQwo portion of .the globe to a community postetsing great power and in fluence. It is a noticeable faet tbat Great Britain and New Zaalaud so similar in site and conformation, are almost precisely, an tipodean. i . .

A lit tlo girl four years old, wss on ber way borne from church, with her mother, when they passed a boy splitting wood, and tbe father remarked, "Mary, da you see that boy breaking the Sabbath?". Tbe child made no reply, but walked home very thought fully, aod meeting her mother exclaimed, "Ob, mother, I saw a boy breaking tbo Gab bath with a big axe T How I Began Life. began life by ruoning away from home, Boilcau, wo are told, was driven into bis ca reer by Ibe hand of fate and the pock of a turkey. Attila started in life with no other caute and capital than an old tword, which hft was adroit enough to palm off for the divine weapon of Mais; and Robespierre owed his political career to wettiog his stockings and there heard "words which burn," thai fired hia sonl, and determined his course in life. My running away from home arose from a minor mortification, cautcd by carrjing a pretty girl over tbe brook. Donald Lean and tnytolf were good friendt at fourteen year, of age, and we both regarded with a little more tban friend ship pretty Helen Graham, "our oldest girl at school. .We romped and danced to got ber, and this lasted for such a length of time' that I look back upon the mystery of two lover! ' continuing friends. But the time came, ai eome it most, when jesloosy lit ber spark In my boyish bosom, and blew it into a consuming flamed - . - Wotldol remember bow and . when Ihe "green-eyed" perpetrated thi, incendiary deed. It was on a cold October ovoning, wneo iioion, Donald and my,e:r were re turning with our parents.from a neighbor ing hamlet.' At we approacbod a ford where Ibe water ran somewhat higher than ankle deep we prepared to carry Heloo across.as we wcr accustomed lo do, with bands inierwo veu"chsir faihion"and tbut carried our ptot ty passenger over the brook. Jutt a, we were io the. middle of ibe water which wa, cold enough at the time to bave froxeo any thing liko fooling out of boyt less hardy tban ourselves a faint pang ff jealousy nipped my heart. ' Why it was. I know not, for we bad carried Helen fifty timet serosa the brook i ere now without emotion, but this evening I thought or fancied, that Helen gave Donald an undue preference bycast ing ber arm around hit neck, while she steadied hersolf on my side by holding tbe cuff Of my jacket. ' ' ; No flame can burn so quickly or with ,o little fuel as jealousy. Before we had resohed the. opposite bank, I was wwbiog Donald at . the bottom of the sea. Being naturally impetuous. I burst out with "Ye need na baud lae gingerly, Helen, as if ye feared a fa. I can avo carry yeligbtor ih.i, nnn.i.t ... t..ir .( .WW.. UU.IU VHU 1 1 B 1 1 If, J V" 8or prised at tbo vehemence of 'my tone, our queen interposed with an 'admission that we wore both strong, and that she had do idoa of jsharing my powers. But Don ald's ire was kindled, and be utterly dooied that I was at all qualified lo compete with bim in , feats of moral courage, ,0a such topics boys are generally emulous, and by me time wa reached the opposite bank, it was settled that, the poiot should bo deter. aunea ty oar singly carrying Helen across tbe ford io our arms. . Helen wat to determine who bad carried ber tnott easily, aod I settled with mysotf privately in advance, tbat the one who obtained tbo preference would really be tbe person who stood highest in ber affections. The reflection stimulated me to exort every effort, and I verily believe, to this dav that 1 could nave carried Donald and Helen on either arm like foatbert. . But 1 must not anticipate. , Wa suffered all the rest of the party to pass quietly along, and Iben returned to the ford I lifted Helen with tho utmost ease, and carried her to the middle of Ihe water. Jealousy bad intpired a warmer love, and it was with feelings unknown be fore that I embraced ber. beautiful form. and felt Ibe pressure of her cheek agaiosi mine. All went swimmingly, or rather wa dingly, for a minute. But alas, in tbe very deepest part of'the ford I trod on a treach erous bit of wood, whieb rested, I suppose, on a smootn stone, urer i rolled, bearing Helen with mo, nor did we rite unlit fairly soaked from bead to foot. . 1 need not detoribe the taunt, of Donald cr the more accusing sileoee of Helen. Both believed that 1 bad fallen from mere weakness, and my rival demonstrated his superior ability, by bearing ber in bis arms for a long distance on ber homeward path. At we approached tbe boute, Helen, feeling drv and better humored, attempted to eon eiliale me. But I preserved sileuco. 1 was moriifiod beyond redress. Tbat night 1 packed np a few things, and ran away.. My, boyish mind, sensitive and irritatd, exsggerated tbe negation which it bad received, and promptod me lo a course which, fortunately, lod me to better retultt than usually attended tuch irregularities I went to Edingurgh, where I found an uoole, kind-bearted, ebildlett man, who gladly gave me a place in bi, boute, and employed me io bit buiinota. Wealth flowed in upon him. 1 became bi, partner went abroad rctided four year, on the continent, and finally returned to Scotland, rich, educated, Id short, everything ' but mart led." ' Ooa evoning, while at a ball at Glasgow, I wa, , truck by a young lady of unpretending appearance, but whote remarkable beauty aod brightened expression indicated a mind of more tban ordinary power. I wat intro duced, but tba Scottish 'name, had long been unfamiliar lo my ear, and I could not eaten ber,. It wa, Helen something, and there was something in tbe faoe, too, tbat seemed familiar something suggestive of pleasure and pain. ,,, ; . But ' we became well acquainted that evoo'mg. . I learned, without much diffi culty, ber history, Sbo was from Ibe coun try, had been educated, ber parent, bad lost tbeir property, and ibe was now a gov erness in a family of the city. - I was fascinated with her convertation, aod wa, continually reminded by ber grace and refinement of manner tbat she was ca pable of moving with distinguished success in a far higher sphere tban tbat which for tune seemed to bave assigned ber. I am naturally oeKber talkative nor addicted to confidence; but there was that io tbi, young lady, tbat inspired both, and I conversed with her at I bad never converted with any. Her quettiont of tbe various sountrios with wbioh I waa familiar Indicated a remarkable knowledge of literature aod air iocrodiblo i toro of Information. We nro? retted in the Intlmaev. and aa conversation lurood on the reasons which Indoced so many to leave tboir native land. iBugmngiy remaraoa mat my own travels wore owing to falling with a pretty girl in to a ford.

He answered well enough, and I was about to give him a sixpence, when Helen stayed my hand, and cried out In tbo old style: "llev. Donald, mon. dlnna ve ken v'ere oldfrien'tr .

Boston Courier of vosterday makes the following statement: "' "It will bo remembered that when Gen. Grant gave a public reception at Ibe Atlor House, Haw York, some time sinne. some dastardly fellow made an attempt to wrench tbe General's arm oot of joint, by seising bi, band with a vice-like grasp and twisting it around in a painful manner. A similar attempt to injure Ibe General was mado at Ibe Faneoil Hall reception in this city on Monday. W bile the tbrong of ladies and gentlemen were paying tbeir personal re spects to tbe distinguished hero, ao individ ual approached bim and seised bis band in the iinis manner' that 'H waa grasped to Mew York attempting to give It a sod den twist, which tbe General succeeded io provonling only by forcibly withdrawing n. isoe o: ine Aldermen woo witnessed tbe operation seized Ibe man by Ibe nock, but the ratcal escaped from bim. and wat quickly lost in the crowd which was hurry ing past, mere is no coobt sut tbat it was a deliberate attempt to inflict personal in jury upon tbe Gonoral, and we nndorstand, aiso, mat no was laonttaed at tbe same per son, who tried tbe same game in New York." If Ibis scoundrel should fall into tbe bands of some of Grant's veterans, he will stand an excellent, chance of having his neck "twisted around in a painful manner." i hat twist will cure nim of bis disposition to twisting.. Complex Relationship. A correspondent of Harper'$ Monthly is involved in domestio perplexities. He writes: I got acquainted with a young widow, who lived with her ttep-daughter in the tame bouse. I married tbe widow; my father fell, shortly after it, in love witn Ibe step-daughter of my wife, and married ber. My wife become tbo mother-in-law and also the daughter-in-law of my own father; my wife's step-daughter is my atep-motber, and I am tbe step father of my motber-in-law.

A Tribune tpocial ,ayi: Notwithstanding tbe varioua atories set'afloat in regard to tho ill-treat mant of Jeff.

No officer hat been or it statiooed in bis cell; be is allowed to take frequoot walks on tbe ramparts and it permitted to cboote bis own food. Tbe stories that hia cell is guarded by a score or more of bayooets, that io bia promenades be is attended by a battalion of soldiers.aod tbat bis diet is limited to tbe army ratioo, are as ridiculous as Ibey are untrue. The treatment of J. D. ia Cbristian-like and ha maoe and jutt, tucb at a generoua and dig nified Government can well afford lo be stow upon one wbo ia do longer ill enemy, bnt its prisoner.
