New Well A new well was struck on
the Clark farm, Shambufg, last evening,
which started up pumping at the rate of
350 barrels per day. Frew Ave o'clock last
evening to ten this morning a 250-barre;
tank was filled. Thta well la near the
Thompson well, and is owned by Dr. Coo
mey and others. Shamburg is ahead!
The New York, Bulletin, in discussing
the petroleum trade, says seventy per cent,
of all the exports of petroleum made this
year have been made from New York, while
the remaining thirty per cent, shipped from
Philadelphia was nearly all on account of
New York merchants. It says that coo
tracts can be obtained from Pittsburgh re
finers at buyers' option for one mouth, in
'lines" for a series of mouths extending
ever the whole year, and that speculators
can be more readily accommodated in Pitts
burg than in Cleveland. It is this mania
for speculation that the Bulletin ascribes
the decline in the refined products of l'itt--burgh
for the past year. It alleges that re
finer of this city are nearly all .speculators
on either the "bull" or "bear" siile, biiylug
ad selling options of each other bands out
side parties who always have the advantage
The result is that speculation baa almost
entirely usurped the place of legltlmato
manufacturing business. Tbe Bulletin
then gives the refiners of Pittsburgh the
'If tbe refiners thero would be content
with moderate and sure profits, limit their
tales to periods of thirty or forty days u
bead, and to tbe legitimate exporting trade,
and contract to deliver at seller's option to
suit the "lay-days" of tbe buyer's vessol, it
is unquestionable that tbey could run their
work at a greater profit than any othor man
ufacturing centre, By adopting this course
tbey become more intimately connected
with those who buy oil for actual export,
their brands would become better known,
and more desirable to the buyers, bb, i
many cases, one brand would make an en
tire cargo; they would pay lees by leakage;
in short, they would become misters of
their own business. Having no contracts
Jor future delivery of refined oil they would
not be obliged to buy crude futures at ad
vanced rati-s to cuver, thereby continually
stimulating tbe price of crude. Tho l'itts
buig refiners possess, in most cases, ample
tankage, and could easily bold their refined
oil over toe wean anu uuu stage ot tne
market. The location ol Pittsburgh, con
nected as she is by rail and water with the
oil regions, and possessing obeap fuel, iron
and cooperage, and (bo Pennsylvania Rail
road alwaja guaranteeing her lower east
ward freights than the Pennsylvania or any
other railroad company will concede to any
other manufacturing point all these ail-
vantages combine to enable bor to deliver
refined petroleum at tide-water at lower
prices than oan bu touched by the rcfineri of
either New York or Cleveland."
Referring to the rumors tli-it the Pitts
burg rcflueis had f-iriiutl a combination that
eauscd the recent alvanc; iu both eniJe
and refined oil, the Bulletin says that after
diligent Inquiry it Bods that crude for im
mediate delivery is exceeding scarce, and
that the demand on Oil Creek Is rrom tho
legitimate trade. It says that the reports
of dully production and stock at the wells,
published in the Titusvilie Ukrai.d, are as
serted to be gross exaggerations, and that
purchasers on Oil creofc estimate the produo
tion at not over 10,000 barrels, and the act
ual stock at from 50,000 to 100,000 barrels
less than Hie Herald reports. Tho stock
in New York is very light, and exporters
are buying very little, assigning as a reason
that Europe has plenty of petroleum and
will not respond to tho advance in American
AN OLD MAIDS DEATH.
Tne Last of -'Lochy Ostuom" A
strange History $25,000 Left Beiiird
and no Will A Prospective Fight for
the Money. I'oughkeepsie, Nov. 2fl
'Lochy Ostrotn is dead," was whispered
about the Court House in I'oughkeepsie,
this morning. Who is "Lochy Ostroui?"
inquired a Supervisor. Thereby bangs la
talc. Rechel Ostrom, or Lochy," as she
was fnmilliarly called, was born in this city
In 17112. When she reached ber majority
she became acquainted with young Pougb
kuepsie lawyer named Gnzley, and an ar
dent affection gretf up between them until
Gnally ber suitor applied to ber parents for
(he band) of their daughter in marriage.
It was refused peremptorily, though Mr.
Gazley was in all respects an honorable
man. This, of Course, sadly disappointed
the lovers, and they parted.
Some time afterwnrJs Hendrlck Ostrom,
a brother of "Lochy," who was considered
a miser, died, it is said partly of starvation,
leaving a considerable sum of money. He
was the first to drivo a hackney coach in
this city. Some of his money. $3,000, was
inherited by 'Lochy." After bis deals' the
property which 'Lochy" und Ilendrik had
mutually enjoyed was sold, and "Luchy'
then began to hew ber own way through
the world. She wool out at days' work;
was industrious and economical to the letter;
in fact, like tbe brother she was miserly.
The youug and beautiful girl bad grown
to be a homely and morose woman, on
whose face the marks of time, disapolnt
ment, and a soured life bad left their mark.
Fifteen years ago the young lawyer, then
also grown old and grey, reappeared, nml
then again offered bis baud to ."Lochy" iu
But she was a changed woman. II t
heart bad become hardoned to her lot in
life, and tbo proffered band was rejected.
Since turn she had subsisted on friends
about the city, scarcely ever eating a din
ner in ber own bouse Sbe has been known
to say that a mutton chop rtould last her
two weeks, and one who knows her says
she would subsist on ten dollars a year.
By continually eating at others' tables, she
managed tt save every cent she earned.
She purchased no clothing for a number
years, and for the last fifteen or twenty
years of her lH'e was not Inside of a church
It whs known that she bud accumulated
considerable properly, but when uBked
whether sbe wished to do any writinir, re-
plied that she did not, and died wi'hout
making a will. She leaves $25,000 in the
bands of J. II. Full man, Eq. This pro
perty will go to the State.
