Tn "U region cf Pennsylvania may not
be ao plnar.t to reside 'id during the winter,
but ia the summer no fairer portion of the
country can bt fonnil. If those who bill Id
here would meet good substantial habita
tions, instead of the miserable inflammable
concern tlicr now put up, it would be no
xrorie living here in the winter tliau in any
other part of the country, Tho ureal
trouble is, our peop'e haven't got rid of
the idea of merely staying. Tliey are con-
, aiunlly looking; forward to the time when
they sitoil be leaving here. This keeps so
ciety in it a unsettled condition. The busi
ness of this region ought to iusure us a largo
permaaent population. Petroleum Centre
ought, within tho next year, to grow to twice
its present ize; and the same should be
the case with Oil City. This region is
tich in rejourns. For years to come tho
development of lis oil land will continue,
and there is no good rer.son tu believe that
the supply will be exhausted, nt least during
the present generation. We would thme-
; fore advise the men who make tbelr money
' hi r, o stay ami help make the country
what ft ought to be, end not go to other
" puna of the lund to spend what they have
r.ntnped out of the earth here.

A Pad History. The Kenoshe, Wis i
Telegraph, in speaking of vessels built at
that port, gives the following sad history
of a Buffalo lady:
In addition to those previously nnmed,
quite a namber of Brat class grain vessels
have been built at other ports, fur owners
living at this place. The nami'g of the
vessels that occur to us at the present writ
ing, are the C. I. Hutchison, Mary 11. Unh
and John V. Ayor. There is a sad history
connected with the last nnmed vessel. Her
eemmander bud just left the Paul Jones to
command tho Ayer. Both vessels left the
port of Chicago en the same dny, loaded
with wheat.and both vessels in the succeed
In j night dioappeared forever. It is conjec
tured that the vessels collided during a
storm that occurred a few hours after they
left port, and went together to the bottom
of the lake. The wife of the captain
of the Ayor, young, beautiful, intelligent
and devotedly attached to her husband, be
came Incurably insane soon after receiving
intelligence of the fate of her husband. She
resides at Buffalo; and whoever she chances
to meet, she at once addresses to them the
oft repeated inquiry, if they had seen the
Jubn V. Ayer, and if her hiisband ia sunn
expected into port. Alas! poor woman,
she will have to puss over to the -other
shoro" herself, before she meets him again.
Henry Clay's son, Theodore, is an inmate
of the insane asylum at Lexington. An ed
itor who witnessed a recent hall given In
that institution, says: 'The most noted of
the male Inmates nro Theodorn Clay and
'Boss' Liter. Tho former is of small stature,
thin, with gray lmir and whiskers. Ha Is
partly bald, and keeps his cheeku smoothly
shaved. He seldom speaks, recognizing
those who address him by returning the sa
lute politely and with dlcnity. Oti the con
trary, 'Boss' Liter is very loquacious. He
ia a portly, farmer-looking man, and so
harmless that bo is allowed to go and enme
nt bis pleasure. He is under the delusion
that bo owns tho asylum nnd ground."
