COAL, IRON, AND OlL. — This is the unpre
tending title of a work just published by Benjamin
Bannan, editor and proprietor of the Miners' Jour
nal, Pottsville, Pa. The book is compiled and ed
ited by himself and S. 11. Daddow, mining engi
neer, and is the most practical and exhaustive
treatise ou the subject that has come under our
observation. The theories explaining the forma
tion of coal and the generation of petroleum are
somewhat novel, but appear to be based upon care
ful observation and analog}'. We cannot hut
agree with the evident belief of the authors of this
treatise, that the formation of petroleum, if not of
coal, is not altogether and wholly an event of the
past, but that the process is still going on, al
though perhaps not so rapidly as formerly.
The description of the great coal and oil basins
of this country will be found valuable and inter
esting to the business man and general reader,
while the statistics and information relative to
these two great natural products, will arrest the
attention of the practical man and the scholar. —
The manufacture oi iron from the ore is treated in
an eminently practical manner, making the work
one of great value to mechanics and manufactur
ers. W e shall take occasion to refer again to this
treatise when time and space permit.
The volume is one of eight hundred pages and
contains over two hundred engravings with numer
ous tables. It is a most valuable work, and one
that deserves to be read by all intelligent men.

" MUGBY JUNCTION," Dickens' Christmas
Story for 1866, is published complete in the 50th
number of Every Saturday. As Mr. Dickens' con-
I tribution to the story this year occupies a larger
portion of the volume than usual, it is safe to pre
dict that "Mugby Junction" will prove even more
popular than any of its predecessors. The first
four tales in the collection are from the pen of the
inimitable " Boz.' These episodes are written in
the author's happiest vein. The sketch entitled
the " Barbox Brothers," is one of those delicious
lessons which Dickens teaohes so admirably. No
one can read it without strengthening his belief in
human goodness. "Young Jackson," " Phcebe,"
and "Lamp," with his periodical " rounders," be
come our personal friends immediately. "Little
Pollv." the lost child, whose name is no t Trivits,
is a conception as charming as anything in that
marvellous series of novels which we are never
j weary of perusing. The whimiscal description of
the Refreshment Room, with the stale pas try, and
poor Mr. Swift, will make "Mugby Junction " a
j favorite stopping-place this year for many a de
lighted reader. This Story appears in Every Sat
j urday seven days previous to its appearance in
| England. TICKNOB A FIELDS, Publishers, Boston.

THE COUNTY HOUSE. —The commissioners
named in the Act of Assembly to locate the county
house reported in iavor of the farm of T. L. Bald
win, Esq., near Tioga,price $13,000. A strong op
position to this report was developed, and after a
long and tedious hearing, during which much evi
| dence pro and con was brought forward, the Court
refused to confirm the purchase. The chief gronnds
for this refusal were the great size of the farm and
its liability to overflow in seasons of high water.
The Commissioners then reported in favor of the
Benjamin Austin farm.li miles southeast ol Wells
boro. This report was accepted and confirmed.—
The farm lies in Charleston, contains 180 acres of
fine land, with a good 304x0 two-s'tory house, and
suitable outbuildings. Price $7400. We suppose
that the County House is a fixed fact.— Tioga Agi
BURNED TO DEATH.—A correspondent F rom
Upper Lisle, says that on the sth ot November, a
daughter of Henry Orton, seven years of age, went
to the field where her father was burning logs.—
Her clothing accidentally took fire, and before help
could reach her, were burned entirely off. She
lived but a few hours after the accident.— Bingham'
ACCIDENT.— On Wednesday last, a man
named Van Gorder fell from one of the piers of the
Railroad Bridge, a distance of fifteen feet, striking
his head and shoulders upon a pile of stone. He
was picked up insensible, and Dr. Lyons, who was
called,found upon examination that no bones were
fractured. He is now in a fair way of recovery.—
The only wonder is that it did not kill him instant
ten" The Presbyterian Church of Troy
having been ably served by Rev. Samuel F. Colt,
late of Pottsville, have with entire unanimity invi
ted him to settle here, and he is expected to return
with his family in the course of ten days or two
weeks. Mr. Colt is favorably known in Bradford
county as a pastor, and especially as originatoV
and founder of the Collegiate Institute at Towanda.
As chaplain of the 96th Pa. Volunteers, he serv ed
through the McClellan campaign on the Peninsu la.
As a Secretary of the General Assembly's Commit
tee on Freedmen, with indefatigable exertions he
organized that most beneficent mission on the
Eastern field, from Baltimore to St. Augustine,
Perhaps to Mr. Colt as a preacher,his most prec
ious toils were those of last winter at Shamokin,
Elysburg and Williamspoit, in which he was per
mitted to welcome converts by scores and hun
dreds. May "his bow abide in strength," and his
coming bt> as happy for himself as we know it to
be most acceptable to the citizens of Troy. Troy
REV. T. K. BEECHER. —The congregation
of this reverned gentleman, in Elruira, says the
Advertiser, have have granted him a six months'
leave of absence, on account of failing health. Mr.
Beecher left Elmba Tuesday evening for New
York, intending to sail in the Brazilian steamer, for
Rio Janeiro. It is understood that Mr. Beecher's
brother, James, will occupy his pulpit during his
abscence.— Elmira Gazette.
SINGULAR AND FATAL ACCIDENTS. —We take
the following notices from the Danville Intelligencer:
SAD AND FATAL AFFAIR. —One day last week, an
interesting child, aged about two years, daughter
of Mr. Geo. W. Miles, in this place met its death
under very distressing circumstances. During the
momentary absence of its mother in an adjoining
room, the infant crawled to a closet where a box of
Concentrated Lye was Kept, and before it was no
ticed, had swallowed a portion of this caustic salts.
As soon as possible, Dr. tjimington was called, wfio
applied what remedies he could to alleviate the lit
tle suffer and to counteract the effect of the poison,
but it was of no avail, it died on Saturday morning
j last after two days of intense pain and suffering.
ANOTHER FATAL ACCIDENT.— Some three weeks
since a child of Mr. A. C. Russel, of this place,
aged about forteen months, swallowed a shawl pin
in length between two and three inches. The ef
fect was to produce much pain and suffering. The
pin, notwithstanding its length, worked through
the passages of the intestines and was evacuated
from the bowels. But the irritation from its pass
age produced inllammation, which caused death 011
Sunday morning last. This was a very singular
case. That a pin of the length stated should work
its passage through the intestines, convoluted as
they are, and that the child should live so long un
der the circumstances.

Nov. 20, 'OO. BY ORDER OF TIIK TRI'STKES.
GREAT SECRET EXPOSED !
Yielded at last to the wishes of friends. Time aud
again has the lollowtng proposition been made ; bat
:. r exposed until the present.
FIVE YEARS Ay UN REVEALED SECRET '
NERVE YOURSELF FOR THE SHOCK !
First proposition to be made public :
FRIEND NELSON First, I would say., according to
the best calculations, in the Brrough ot Tuwanda, there
is sold yearly one hundred thousand dollars worth ol
Boots aud Shoes,mostly slop work of the most interior
kiud, and tbe people generally are sick of it. And now
1 say to your again, as 1 nive belore,enlarge your Store,
make it neat and commodious, and keep a good stock ol
Boots and >hoes, and you shall be sustained. Most ol
tbe people begin to feel a little above buying their boots
and shoes at Dry Goods Stores ; it looks verdant and
outlaudish. c do not ask to make y >ur goods if it is
not convenient. The facilities in some other localities,
where a better ch "ice of sto ik aud woikmen can be had,
may be still better Aud you have always been in the
business, and better understand this one point and im
p rtant branch ol the Merchant's art, than those that
deal in Silks and Muslins, and they, I believe, would be
glad to let this business go where it belongs ; that they
have done it heretofore to accomodate tne people ; I do
believe it you would open a lirs -class Shoe Store the
people wou Id not go to Dry G ods Stores to buy Shoes .
any more than they would to Drug Stores for Oats.
stop, stop 1 what are you talking aboutlias not any
one the light to sell what be pie ivjs ? It may he, but
not injustice is it right in so large a place as this .where
practical men are engaged wholly in this business. It
has been given up ia every other place, and according
to custom it will be here.
Two thousand live hundred propositions made'rom
i ;i-I.uuers, is, to br.ug ai ire ol the same kiud ot Boots
and Shot s you brought with you when you came in town
seven years ago. I have never teen a good Shoe belore
nor since, is the language oi ihem all at the same lime,
liaise thy leei gently
And think it so queer
That the Boots I sold then
Should weat them a year,
i now yield to the above propositions, aud have prom
ised to sell Twenty-five Thousand Dollars worth ot his
Boots aud Shoes it he would make them as good AS
those 1 brought here seven years ago, and the answer is
1 will 1 I will!
Well friends, your proposition made
And I've consented to the trade,
So I will sell j on telioes both strong and ilea!,
To please the taste and suit the leet.
I have Ladies,' Misses', Boys' and Mens',
From fancy down to coarse brogaas,
Come one and ail, do as yon agree,
And buy your Boots and .Shoes of rue.
Come ! Come! I say. where you can find
Boots exactly to y jur mind ;
A d if y.,u was never here before,
Yoa'll find it is the very Store.
Come Ladie-", Gents, I have goods for all.
Buy your goods ot me this Fall,
And when Spring comes I will the cry,
•• At L. C. NELSON'S I will buy!"
There is one thing more I'll say to you,
I'm in the old Store made over new ;
It any read, and stand the shock,
My place you'll find joins Pattern's Block.
