TUE PRESS GANG AND POISON, This isn't altogether a story of press gangs, as you will Dud before I've done, and it mado a eood deal of talk hero at the tune n I remember. though I was only a lad i but you see the rrowtier's 'qnost act all things right, and after that It was no una asking further uuctdioti. It must bo nigh fifty years ago lift y years !" be repented, half closing bis eyes and pausing as IMS imnl traveled over the space whieb had brought so many and great changes even to that quiet bttle village " that an old sca-farirg mail, they called Cupuin Meredith, lived at leoet that Is to say , lodged--iu tbe house of a widow named Penrhyn. Yoi might see the sft from the hill, for the house itself has been pulled down smvo then, ucll, he might hare been a Captain or not, I dou't pretend to sayt It is certain bo bnd a bit or monoy put by, and lived comfortably enough, ijouios.iid bo hail been in ths smuggling trade, and inuJe money that way,1 However, .it don't' much' ntatter bS was well respectsd, and though be hud no wife living, be bad a daughter us win culled Ellen, and was tho prottie.t lags in Cowssnd and for miles around. Well, now, this old woman had a son uauied Paul, and a at range ait ice be was. I remember Lint t a little bandy-legged chap with red hnir, and tho people ued to unl! turn 'doctor.' " as he a surgeo o, then 7" 1 Interrupted. " I'm toinir to tell you. . He hud been 'prea ticcd to a cbcmUt In l)evenort (we uned to call it 'dock' in thono duvs.) and after his tiino was out he had been Stopping with his mother to take sure of her, or perhaps Lccauso he couldn't Cud a situation readily for himself. Tho old widow had put something by, I supNe, and Paul had been at home about a year when' the Captain came to lodge there with Lis daughter. This Paul's room was at the top of the bouse, a hero bis light would be seen burning nt a tiino, f tbe night when all honest folks were In bed and asleep. Sometimes he would bo out ull night, tvbco bo wns met in the moruing returning with his arms full of weeds and plants, which he u.-e t to take up luto tLe Moelor's shop,' (is they called It." ' "An: a botso'td, I remarkod. " I don't know about that." replied inr fiieniL slightly puzrlcd " lut the peoplo said he made pi: ten out of them. Any way, once when Paul was ping by the blackMuith's, tbo dog ran out and bit him, und the next day Paul wus seen to give him a piece of Lreud and the dog was dead within an hour, nod I reco'leet, when a -ounetdcr, culling after him,. 'Thcro goes Doctor Night f liudo !' and his ftcj )Jug und fsi ing, 'if I had to doctnr yon, my bid, you wouldu t Iioiit so loud.' Well, shortly after Ellen si.d hr futher had been hrlgiog at tlie widow's boue, it was clear to see that Puul wUhcd tocourt her wherever she went, sure enoiigh Paul wns m l far behind ; und thingi went on in this way for about six montln vhn one dark and wintry flight, the wind blowing groat guns, snd tho sen running high, the widow saw signala of Uicticfs from some vessel vtt the point. There was no little loat in thu lacs, and our small craft couldn't have lived a minute in suih weather. In lb morning we taw tio signs of the vessel, nod we supposed she had gone down and all on bonrd lost, llowcvtr, we hoard during tho day, that una poor fellow had ccupi'd, mid though cul and biuised, hud contrived to cranl up to the point there, whero he bad teen found by Cnpta'ii Meredith who brought hint home to his own lodging eu 1 lamed buu Ho was a flno youns; fellow, un orphan he said, by the name of William Randall, and hail been working his way to Livcrxol in hot of obtain ing employment.

Bill was a handy il.sp and soon mado trictidn with I lie people, iinJ aha pcnuadol to stop here iiiMead of gidng to Liverool ns bo had Intruded. Ho didn't want nnnh pneaing, fir any one conbl teo there wasaRirl in tho hhso and that girl was Ellen Meredith and it ilidu't waul inori than tno eyes tj sue that the liked him. " Tho folks used to jrer Pjul hhnut his nso emit h, nsoao l him a grudo fur 1'fie dog, ii-V'ilTo ay, 'well, doctor, ha's your Lose by this timet lint they said the doctor only used to turn white mid rub his hands, it was a way be h id, and he did the same when ho g ive th'.1 !"g tho I read. " Well, thints pn sKiroit no well with young Pandnll, that at hu-t he mado up bin min I I nrk tho Cupt;i:li for bis ii.nM iit that bo and Lllcll fhoi.ld In man led and ns tho obi fellow was a jolly, easy going customer, and l.kciU I. ill Very much iM'aiUes, ll womi t long ijcloio l.o gave it Just ul out tbi. time the folks in tho vitiligo cre frightened at tho report that tho press gang were out that they bad been us far as Plymouth, four or five luili-s fiom thetw u thcie, nud hd prcocd thirtv or forty men. "Tho Captain and Ell n Wfliite l to put o!T tho marriage, but l'i!l wouldn't hear to it, and, sir it, gc to my, Paul, r n bij ttorrt rival, as you tuny say, sidul with him, , " Well, on tbe very day afro tho sicll'.na strnngo man ns hiidti't been seen in tbo village nfore, cilled at tho house to see Paul, end a neighbor ss happened to lie prevent nt tho tune, said iillcrwanlt ho hud seen them tailing tugett.cr on. the road to Plymouth. Now, mind me, in the evening, just as they wore sitting dov a ti supper and drinking healths, Paul, who was late. ian into tho lo.uii leaving the door open bihiiil him, and entreated William to look to himself, as the prees g-uig wero already in the village! snd afore iionr lull could get away the press gang were ide and bad seined him, and In i-pito of his rubles ami 1. Urn's erics and Paul's entreat carried bim to mo r.cncn, a here a bout lay re ady, and took him away, la that all?" I asked. "Not exaet'y, mnto," said my friend, finishing bis rum; the strange part has not come So renleiiicbing bis gloss und resuming bis pipe, bo continued ! Welt, everv one of course was very much caa dowo el this, but iar Ellen paitkiilmly. However, for many months sho kept a bravo heart, always telling tho Captain that she knew Wi am would rctnrn, nmnucy mioiiiu no nappy yet and d'yo see no one liked to toll the ior thing d ncrcnliy, aituougn cry iow tuougui they d ever sco bim ngain. Al anv rate, it was clear that Ir. Paul didn t, for after a whilo ho began again to pay his ad- dreises to her, and this tunc more in earnest than before but it was no uso. Lllun would bavs I nothing to say to him at all. Now iibout two years after they bod prcsre l poor Rill, alien it wus gutting on townnts tno winter tiino tiicie had been a deal of duty weather about, and several vessels lia I been lot upon the ; coast there was a rcjicrt thnt several crews hud lieu paid off, and then l.llcu mado up her min ) more than ever that Wilifuin would return, whtnono dav a mighbor conns In nnd s.iys ho hud heard that a vesM.1 like the r pit lire that was the one that William went out in bnd gone down t ft tho Sicillys, and it w ns feared all bauds ha 1 pcruiic-J; he bad it bo said from a party oier to Pcvtnpoit tho day before on some matter of business. '1 Ins wns I ad news for the p.-or lass, but 1 believe she still hoped and prayed Tor her sailor sweetheart, nnd all along kept telling the Obtain that bo would live to ico her snd Will Randall bride and bridegroom yet ; but about a fortnight alter tide Paul comes in, in a great way, and showi tho Captain a bottle whhh he said had bcon pu ko l up on the t'oruifctt coast, no uoum uaving uioicu in i nnd in it was a potior saying that thu Spittire couldn't live through tko nigld, pruymg that whoever found tho bottle would, rur Heavens sake, send It to Captain Meredith, of Cowsjud, with the last prayers of po.r ill. Th:s was dnlcd back, and was alout square with thedoyahon tho Spit Ore whs said l have gone down nnd so now there seemed no liopo at nil, and so J oor L'llcn seemed to think at l.t, for he got paler and leaner every uay ana uiovci uim.i.i like otio alio bat nothing to live for, To in.iko matters worse tho Cuptam got into debt, and difficulties got bigger Mid higher. Will, one day oil on a sudden, the doctor goes to him and offers to marry F.llcii out f baud,, promi-ing to pny all the Captain's debts and staling Hint his long and strong attachment had Induced bim to make the proHal. The Captain, as you may believe, didn't much farcy Paul for a son-in-law, but ho at last relented and prtswd by his dol.t.i and troubles, urged LHcn to accept him. Hi poor tana refused lor a lonr time, but when she found her father's liberty and welfare depended on it and Ws.dcs had lort all hope of ever seeing ill Randall again, she consented." ' Rut yoo don't mean to say that they got mar ried aflsrt 7" 1 interrupted. "Intao or three months they were, and a pretty couple they must have mndo she with her tall figure and pale, and he w ith his red head nnd bowed legs shambling along by her aide.

Thsy say Filer UkJi.'t cry orfniat.or h ire sny nonsense of that kind, but went through ho shaie quietly nnd cnlmly, while tho IVk tor seemed ell aboard. Now it seems this very evening, just about dusk, when the Cnptala had gone out M smoke bis pipe, that Paul who had gone ep stairs, heard a terrible loud scream, and rurhing bsw k Into the room where be hod left Fll-n fmJ her fainted away on th6orand Wl liaiu.; Randall himself kueeliug by her side. . . , , Willlau. ued to say afterwards that lie never Kiuld Torgoi Paul's faoe a hen they saw one an another for the flrt timet boused to d roans of it, he said. He had many and many a time seen the faces ef strong men who h:td bcoo, struck down in tho heat and pasidon of but' If, and who bad d ed violent deaths in other ways) but Paul's face, ie mini, reminded him only of a picture he had ofeee seen when auito a little lad, of the devil, which he remembered ha4 I Tightened bim then, sndshiih be bnd forgot teu until their eye- met that night. When Paul recovered from hissur pri.v be said not a word alaiut the marriage, but when William said he had juat It ft Plymouth, und hadn't aeon a soul in the village yet, he sud denly seemed tlclighled at meeting him again, and insisted on their drinking together, lie led Ellen into snot tier room, where bo told Will bis mother would stlend to her, and shortly after re turned lih two ghfsdofst If grog which be put on the tub between tbein.' "Now, D ll, old mate," says lie, "we'll drink to J'snr return borne." Ret what aUut Nelly, joor girl 1" says Will.

TIIE ItOPTE TO THE OIL ItKOIOK. 1 left Detroit at half-pat six la tho morning, aud at half-past nine arrived at Sarnia, Which, in a direct line, is distant about fifteen miles from Potro- lia. Prom, Sarnia there aro two trains a day over the Great Westorn road to Wyoming, distant from Petrolia about fivo miles, and from Oil Springs about twelve miles. There is a btngo running I rem ach train lrom V yomini through I'etrolia to Oil Springs, oyer tho w orst plank road I ever saw. I did not, however, tako the route by Wyoming, but Bocurod a light wagon and a good driver, and passed over twelve miles of tho plank road, (which is excellent,) which leads from Sarnia direct to Oil Springs.- The distance from Sarnia over this road to Oil Springs is oighteen miles, aud to (his point about sixteen miles. I'etrolia is oft' tho lino of tho Iilank road about four or fivo miles. mado tho whole dibtanco from Samfa here in about two hours and a half. i-Eiitom. , As I approached Potrolia mv oliW. tories told me that 1 was in tho reirion of oil.' At this point there aro tiome twenty wolls, more or lofs, already produoing, or nearly ready to produce, oil. There are four flowing wells; tho remainder aro pumped by steam power. I visited every well in this vicinity, ami made as carelul inquiries ns pus bible to ascertain, tho cost of einkinir a well, tho average cost of working, and the probable daily product and tuo value ot tho oil. Cost of biikig a well. The result of theso inquiries satis fied me thut tho average eost of link ing a well, exclubivo of tho co.st of a location, is about live thousand du'lars; tho average extienso of woikitnr. about live dollars a day, and tho AVLUAGE ruODVC'T ten to thirty barrels. fiom ten to thirty barrels. I think tho former nearer tho truth than the latter. Tho to-day is 6ven dollars, the purchaser finding barrels. In ull cases,, when I speak of dollars, it is Canada money or specie, and not " greenbacks," or the notes of our national banks. THE CRI'.sCUST PETROLEUM COSirANT. The largest company here is the "Crescent Petroloum Company, of New York and Canada." This com pany hnve one hundred and ninety-six acres of land, and commenced activo operations in May last, and have now four wells in nn activo producing state, and several more nearly at that point. Tho first well sunk tit this point is on the lands of this company,' nnd has been producing oil since lc'Cl, and is now yielding from twelve to fifteen barrels per day. OEOLOOlSl's REPORT OF THE OIL HEOIO.VS. i3i r William jogan, ueoiogist ot Cnuada, in his ablo report published by tho Canadian Parliament early in IMr.f, speaking oi tno region aooui I'etrolia and Oil Springs, says: 41 Tho deeper wells have, however, given by far the greatest supply oi on; ana in sorao of them, when first opened, tho petroleum has risen above tho aurfaco of tho earth, constituting what are cor.ed flowing wells. ' One of these, which was sunk to tho depth of about J00 feet, is said to have yielded, when first opened, not less than 2,0i)0 bar rels in 114 hours, and several others gave very largo quantities. In soino cases both oil and water flow from tho wells, nnd tho water of somo of tho deeper ones is Balino. Tho recently opened wells have frequently been observed to furnish jut-'olenm only, which, however, after somo time, u neeoinpaniod with a portion of water. Tho total amount of petroleum ex tracted from theso various wells in Enniskillen (I'etrolia and Oil Springs) bineo their opening may bo seen from the returns kindly furnished by tho frei-'ht ont of the (treat Western Pailwny, over which the produce of this district finds its way to market.

ITS MOST NOTED WELLS. per Well," tlm "Pi. k Well," tho "Pope Well," nnd tho "Victoria Well,'' but unfortunately for mo, nono of theso nro in working order. Ono is putting down a larger engine ; another is re pairing its pumps; a third has broken somo part of its engine, and u fourth is pumping water nnd not oil. Prom tho most reliable data I could find, which 1 am imbued to tako with some grains of allowance, tho "Pepper Well " has produced for many days iu succession ocr n hundred barrels per day. The strota is tho same here ns nt Petrolia and Oil Springs, nnd from tho number of new wells just starting, this seems to be tho point for specula tion. ' ' Tiiur.E iirxri:r.D wells heino srxK.

OKOLOOIt At. rollMATIO OK TI1K Oil. RrctOXS. Tho most interesting question re specting theso wells is to determine, if possible, whether tho oil found here is exceptional, or whether tho forma tion is tho samo asiu other oil districts. Per this purpose I have examined tho best accounts given of the Pennsylva nia Oil District and wells, nnd com pared them with tho facts observed hero. I havo drawn my duta ns to tho former region from the able work of Mr. William Wright, "On the Oil Pec-ions of Pennsylvania. In spenk- ing of tho geological strata in which oil in that State , occurs, ho says: " That tho series f rocks found in sinking fivo hundred feLt wore : "J-'irsl. Schist rock, w ith mica and a littlo horn-blendo. "Second, A very soft, selicious rock, resembling soapstone. Peels very soft nnd greasy nt first, and has a nearly white color; but hardens and becomes bluish after a timo. . "lln'rd. A hard transition rock;' " Ionrth.' Posf ilifercus limestone, containing fissures or caverns, in which oil is found.' This is usually termed tho 1 second sand rock,' as it contaius sand iu various proportions. The first sand rock in Pennsylvania occurs usu ally from ono hundred und sixty to two hundred and five or ten' ft, is from sixteen to forty feet thick, nnd is followed by the stiata called soap stone,' which varies from fifty to one hundred and fifty feet in thickness, and is followed by n second sand rock' , from fifteen to thilty feet thiik, in w hich nil is found. Iu somo of the wells, it is said, thcro aro threo stratas rrf 'sand rock, but tho Pennsylvania Oil Creek Company sunk a well twclvo hundred and Kitten leet Without reacn ing this third 'sand rock if it exists " r'nii sTitAfV f.vssr.n ix sinkixh a well. The formation in the various oil districts rf Canada, viz., at Petrolm, Oil Springs!, afid at Pothwell, uro so similar thut a description of one w ill answer for all. The difJ'erenco in tho descriptions giveu us by thoso ivha havo sunk w ells arises, wo I'cltottV from tho neglect in taking act urnt') data. Tho most reliablo record wo found was at Petrolii, nnd the strati of rock there was said to'ho fcubstan-. tially os follows: "'. Ten feet of bltto limestone very hard indeed. "Second. Ywm fifty to sixty feci of" looso schist or schalo, uThird.-i About ono hundred and fifty feet of f oapstone or decomposed, rock, very soft, almost white w hon it comes out, but hdnlefis and frcwmc bluish. , i , . "'ow'M. A rery t hard rock, abou(, twenty feet in thick'ness, which was called limcstuue, . . . "'lM. Prom fivo to fifteen feet of.

About ono hundred nnd fifty feet of bluo and grey limestone,, very hard and diificult to drill. ip renth. A porous or honevemnb 'sand rock' varying in thlckftoSs from three - to ten feet. This is fu'l of oil; nnd thus far those sinking wells havo' generully been content to suspend hilling on reaching oil iu their 'sand5 rock,' although in some instances they have gone far below." , , , A comparison of the two regions' thus civen proves that tho oil reiriori . of Cuimda is rio 6xceptional. Tho' surface or physical appearance of tho two regions nro very different, but the fctruta of rocks from tho surfaco to tho oil arc- so nearly alike -that, they may uw mm to no uimost identically tlie same. Jn 1 ouusvlvama tho country is very hilly, and might almost bo ailed mountainous": while irr Canada it is u level plain, stretching" . dll tho way from tho foot of Lake Huron to, Iake Erie. There is scarcely an uu- lulution in tho surfaco except where . tho streams havo washed out a bed from tho soil, from ten to forty fee deep. Thcro aro floVring wells in both? regions. . . , . oexekaL scmmakt: No marvellous wells are now flow ing in this oil district, nnd from ton to' thirty barrels a day may bo considered tho nvoroge, and, taken altogether, probably tho former is nearer tho truth than tho lalter. Thus fur, whilo there hnvo been less failures to find oil than in lVrwsylvunia, - thcro have' been fewer w ells lik6 those wo read of there. . . - settled are : Pivst, tho limit of the oil district. Very littlo, if anything, is really known upon this point. That . there is a limit is certain, and it is equally certain that thousands upon thousands of dollars will bo expended, and fail uro written in lurgo letters' upon their derricks, befot 6 the exact limit of the oil territory will bo found. As yet wo are in primeval darkness upon that subject. Prom the bot.t , geological map have found tho, ,"eor-j niferous" .formation in which tlie oii is found in Canada is nearly '6ne thou sand feet below the salt rock of Sogi-' naw. If this is correct, it probably settles the question as to tho existence of oil in paying quantities in your State: ' . , The second important qncstiwi, Which can only bo settled by experiments, is Rfi tSitcVuAlUuto"0!! i'elVniVaVia it is estimated that nine out of ten., nover produce oil, on I that many ot thoso which nro at first successful finally fail, jind tho averngo yield is about I7 barrels a day to n well, lir Canada, fronV all tho jltxia W6 could ' obtain, tho number of failures are far less than in Pennsylvania, , but I ap prehend thoso will largely increase as operations aro extended1.' : Tho average' vield is also less than iii Pennsylvania, Lut this is compensated in part by tho? ensy transportation, tho cheapness of labor nnd every Article necessary tc carry ou tho works, and tho absence of taxes." . Petrolia can be reached from your city by taking tho Orand Trunk to' Sarnia, nud then by the Great Wes-" tern to Wyoming in about four hours,' and Pothwell can be reached over tho , Great Western direct in about threw hours. Its closo proxhttiy to Detroit w ill undoubtedly cause largo numbers' to viwit the oil regions of Canada, whii could not bo induced to go to Pouu-'i aylvnnia. , , , ."V A NICE SlT.CULTIOX A Iff.' 1 1' tbolilfY witty Englishman onco witkedly said that it would tako tho dovil to boat it Yankco nt a trado, and that tho chances wero against tho former unless ho started with in two points' in tin game."
