Kver tince lite liit rcuy tidincs reached aa
from the IYnnsj-lvania oil tv ions, I bave been

anything of that sort, but oil coal oil. And
what improved mc with this 1 ;Iief, do you ask !
(leolopy the immortal science of fieolojry.
The first peol"Ki'iU pccnlinrtry th it attracted

After making the alnivc iliacuvcrics, I i nin
menced a thorough Keoloeical survey of the
ronntry in search ol oil indications, w hica I only
completed two or three days ago. HiN surrey
has thoroughly witiMiul me thai tnuui,!! oil exists
in the bowels of ilatuilton county to furnish a
hogshead of hair-oil to ovory ma-i, worn in, and
child in the world, without in the k-m diminish
ing the supply. Numerous i-L-ns, besides those
first mentioned by me, have attracted my atten
tion. I titid that the pala o.on: clam of the Intro
nian series largely crops out ia the neighborhood
of onr hog pen and distilleries. Thus we tind It
nrcinsary to withhold from publication the lit of
tneu drafted in the Second Ward, else they wou d
oil their locomotive organs, nnd slip Inui Canada.
Then the mcso.oic strumitis purpura was
every where apparent to tho scientific eye. The
mesi.r.oic stroinbiis purpura is a varioty of the
calceola. both of these vermin indicate tint, if
oil ia not to be found in the immediate neighbor
hood, it can be procured ai the nearest drag stoic
And, from a simpler course of reasoning than
uny of the foregoing, we arrive at the conclusion
that Hamilton county Is an oil region. Look at
the number of "oily" citizens here In Cincinnati.
Likewise stip Into any well-regulated drug storo,
barber-shop, private family, or restaurant, anil
you will find oil in the greatest nhundanco. All
Mint's abound. There is enstoroil, and sweet oil,
and hair oil, and coal oil, and goose oil.
Oil is a good thing to grease boots
with, and to cat on lettuce. I don't
like it on lettuce, however. To my taste there
is uoihing better to cat on lettuce than a littlo
good, sharp vinegar, with a mild sprinkling of
pepper and salt. Terhnps my rcpiigtiaiico to oil,
from a culirmry stand-point, Is owing to the fabu
lous amount that was forced down rav juvenile
throat by our well-meaning, hut deluded, hired
girl. Of course she acted tinder orders from
headquarters. Tho regular d se was two tablo
spoonsful twolve times per day. If I should
chance to sneeze before going to be J, a goose
qnill, saturated with oil, was at once Introduced
Into each nostril. There Is nothing like having
careful treatment when you are young !
Thus, It will be seen that Hamilton county is
an oil region. Science says so; I say so. If it
wasn't an oil region, why would traphoa bclem
nites oo.c out of the ground, whenever you rake
tip a little dirt in search of anglo-worms i Traphou
belemnitcs mean oil, and nothing else. Where
you tind truphon belemnitcs you llnd oil, and
where you rind oil you tind tiaphou bolcmnitos.
That was Hugh Miller's experience, and it has
And whut is going to be the result of this won
derful state of things ? Why, it's going to make
every human being in Ilatuilton county as rich
as grease can make thein. C reeve In her palmiest
days was nothing in comparison to what Hamil
ton county is destined to lie. Paupers will be an
article entirely unknown hero in a short time,
and the Relief Union will throw up his commis
mission and resign in disgust. Of course I hare
given several of mv particular friends, in tlitien-nt
parts of the county, hints tonching these oil dis
coveries, and they are already beginning to profit
thereby. The beginning or this end is not far
distant. Soon the oil Outer, assisted by science,
will be at work, and
"Greate. her knee in stiiiiancc beat, '
Will UeuiMe ut tils power."
A couple of weeks nco, Mr. Job Dobbs, of
Colerain township, planted a hogshead of oil on
his farm, and in about twenty-four hours after
wards commenced boring tor oil with the hap
piest results. Day before yesterday he sold tho
farm which contained twenty acres to a New
York firm lor live hundred thousand dollars. Tho
farm, betore the oil discovery, was valued ut one
dollar and a half per acre. Mr. Dobbs has now
leased an adjoining sheep pasture, and has put
down two hogsheads and one barrel of the best
quality of neat's foot oil, and will commence
boring again in a short time, lie says there M
no reason why neat's foot oil shouldn't be pumped
as well as coal oil.
He has already been oflavrl a fabulous price
for his pasture, but he decided to hold on to it a
spell longer. Several oilier e.iterpriaing farmers,
in various parts of the county, are putiingdown
oil. I would advise ull Mich t i u e leaky barrels,
as by so doing the oil will escape, and appear in
dillerent localities at the tame time, thus greatly
enhancing the value of their tarnis.

boring was done, a omp my his baeu formed to

Tub Sinks in Flohiua There are agencies

The most dnnEeroui enemies of the soil of Florida
are what lis inhabitants call '-sinks." Those ab'

Tbe undersigned committee, appointed to examine thg
property of tlie Mct'lintock Roserve Oil Company, rrepvgt.
hat tucy imvo thorouglily examined tho John Me' lid
lock Reserve, situated at tho junction of Oil Creek anl
Cheirv Kun. Tbu property alocated on a beaatii'sl bluff,
admirably adapted to boring. There are stx wells finished
and In progress. One well, which had been yielding ehoat
forty barit-ls dully, had suddenly Increased loone hundred
and forty barrels, and waa flowing nt about ttia rate oa
our viilt. Another well, represented aa yield. ng seveoty
flve barren, was pumping at the ruta of eighty to ninety
barrels, and tlie Intelligent superintendent and lessee wan
anguine in the expectation that In a ahurt time It xouldl
become flowing well, and give a much larger yield.
Those two welts are but a few weeks old, and have every
Indication of becoming very large wella.
t hree other well! aro In process of boring, and will M
finished on or before the first of January; and from tag
Indications, we believe they will all be largely productive.
One other well was Just commenced, and will he pastied)
rapidly to completion.
The whole of the properly, except the half acre en "Well
the homestead stands, has been leased, and la m tbe l.aadg
of espcilrnced and energetic men, who wl I spare no palu
or expense te develop the properiyln Hie best manner, a oil
tn the shortest possible Umo.
The derricks, housei, engines, tools, etc , are all n.w,
andthebefctof their kind, and In excellent order, giving
evidence of the cartful supervl.Kin of the owners uf UlC
We have no doubt Uiat the Company's Interest ue
fourth royalty now about fifty-five barrels pcrdky, whiek
at tlo la V0, w III he greatly Inrteased bythebrst at
January nest ; and as the land will admit of twenty welhj
being bored upon 11, n good Idea may oc formed of thg
Immense yield which will result when all are Caishod.
The bouiestead occupies half an acre from which the)
Company will receive thno lomtlis of the ol1 If thsy work;
It, and wt.li h your commltlee strongly reeommenda; at
would not be surprising If this intere.talona should, beforn
Uie txplrutiou of a y ear, realize an income of tuverai hun
dred barrels ptr flay.
The eutl'e properly consists of a little over fear arret.
With a superior dwelling and good barn upon it. Kront
lit proximity to Cherry Run, and Ita peculiar loea lon,
together with the met that tlie property nsj not aeea found
te be affected by other wells In tne Immediate ntlgiii
hood, we are hd to tue conviction that it ia enec' H.s agj
desirable (roperties on Oil Creek.
