the front, but by some delay bo missed the train
and was obliged to lay over a few hours. Uo-
tween 10 and 11 o'clock, accompanied by one of
his aids, Colonel li ideau, he left the hotel on
privuio bu-iiics.s. Ho wi.s tlresscd in civilian's
clothes, with a large slouch hat, having u nliiug
whatever on his person to indicate his position.
He proceeded down Chcsnut street unmolested
mil il a short distance below Sixth, when a soldier
who was standing with several of his comrades on
tl.u sidewalk recognize d him, und wildy ex
claimed, "My God, there's General Grunt !"
This rows spread almost with tho speed of
lightning, and in a few minutes tho General was
completely besieged. Tbe crowd increased with
great rapidity ; people seeing the excitement came
ru.-hiiig to the spot to inquire Into tho cause of
the rejoicing- He was grasped around the neck ;
to his coat tail, und his bands and arms were
seized by till who could possibly reach him. Tho
scene whs becoming more exciting, aud the Gene
ral stood confounded, not knowing what to do in
order to extricate himself. A large number of
police rushed to tbe sjiot, and the fact that tho j
excitement wits owing to the presence of G'.'uei -.' :

The police t- u formed a hollow square, and
the ierttl was placed within, and fairly lifted
by the crowd Into the Central Telegraph olliee,
Fifth end Chesuut. The doors were speedily
closed and guarded by the pollec. The crowd
gulkered around and climbed up in the windows,
and cheer alter cheer wus given for tbe hero.

Considerable attention has been a'trac'.od to
tho unexpected advance in tho stock of the
Clinton Coul and Iron Company, which for a long
period was inactive. Indeed the rise has been so
sudden, that holders of tho stock have Ignorantly
disposed of it at less figures than It would com
mand at tbe Board.
The reason given by those who have a know. 1
ledge of the subject, is tbe discovery of unmis
takable oil indications upon the territory owued
by the company, which embraces about thirteen
thousand acres. Within a few days a lease hit '
been entered into by responsible and wealthy
operators for tho oil privilegos of ono thousaud
acres under an ample rental and royalty.
Tho lessees will immediately comiuenco the
work of sinking wells and developing the oil
production. Notwithstanding the Indisposition
of those connected with the Company to furnish
details of the mutter, we feel It our dutv to nnt
the holders of the stock on their guard against a
ruinous sacrifice of it on the eve of so iinporUn
a devclopmcn'. . .
Tho les ecs are sangnlne of the existence 0
Jarge veins of il beneath the enormous wealth
