OFFICE OF PITTSBURGH GAZETTE,
FRIDAY, February 19, 1869.
There is really nothing that is new or'
important in the- oil market worthy of
special notice; There was not a single
operation in Relined to-day, at last
there were none reputed, nd while the
market is dull and lang id, prices are
nominally unchanged. - he confusion
and uncertainty which h s prevailed for
some time in regard to the future, still
continues, and with a general conflict of
- views, and feelings, buSiness is:neelect
ed, and the sales I unusually light. The
first instalment of oil by riveron the
present rise arrived tc.day, haying been
• towed down by the tug Oil Valley, and
was consigned to!Maw'ninney . ct Bro. and
Fleming ct Co. It is probable that the
receipts within the next few days will be
large, and the river could not be
in better condition for running oil than
It is at present.
The market Is unsettled and rather
- weak, with more sellers than buyers,
though compared with yesterday, prices
have undergone no quotable change.
Sale 500 bbla on spot at 17; 1,400 to be de
livered on this water at 17y,; 1,000
bbls eaoltfrom March to December, at 18;
and I,ooo . 'seller. till October, at 16%.
Last evenibg there were sales of 3,000
bbls, seller ;till December Ist, at 10; 2,000
seller till August first, at 17; and 1,000
October Ist, at 1634.
The market, as already noticed, was
exceedingly quiet to-day, not a single
sale • reported, and while the feeling,
apparently seemed to be weiker, prices
are nominally unchanged. There seem
ed ,to be no demand , whatever for any
delivery, though, it is proper to remark,
in this connection, that there is not
much disposition manifested to sell, re
finers generally appearing to hold off for

NEW YORZ, February 19, 1869.
The-money market Alas become ex
tremely easy; after meridian - offerings
increased rapidly, banks and foreign
bankers appearing in the market as lib.
..eral lenders; the rate on call declined
from 7to 4 and 5 per c ent. among stock \
brokers while 'in the . Cinveniment bond
market loans were made as low as 2 per
cent. Many bankers and brokers have
carried over balancee, being unable to
lend at any rateOf interest. These ex
treme rates are hardly a fair criterion of
the market, however, but it %accounted
. for by the free influx of currency from
the interior and the increased demand
for foreign exchange, which relieved the
limkers .much. Prime business paper

NEW Yonx, February 19—Dry Goods.
In prints ,there has been a further de
cline, and it his been quite general.
Sprague's goods have been reduced to
1330 regdlar, and they now job at 13a
144 c. The Merrimack D fell off to 1334 c,
and all others are down to 13c except
DunnelPs and Pacific Mills, ,which coin.
mhnd 14c. Amoskeag is selling at 12c,
and so are Lancaster and Oriental; the
decline in both of the latter makes forced
all the latter brands down. At the pres
' ent prices the goods cannot be made to
pay a profit with gray cloths at 93;e and
cotton at 30c ' at the mills. Spool cotton,
it is thought, has found a leyel, as the
stock has bedtime reduced: prices are
firm - at 900 for all important six cord
makes except Orr and MaNaughty,which
sell at 80c. 'Three cord thread is lower,

ECONOIY BUTTER CO.
ask the attention of all interested in the reduc
tion of the extravagant cost of Butter, to their
practical and.economical system of making pure
Prime Butter by the aid of the ,
EXTRACT OF BUTTER PLANT.
A brief allusion to the origin of ; this inirortant
discovei y may not prove uninteresting. Among
the authent'cated records of the renowned Cap
tain Cook's voyage around the world, is found
the statement, that while soJourrilng fora short
time on the Brazilian Coast of South America, he
observed the natives using, in the preparation of
their food, a necaliar oil, which, upon examina
tion. lie found to possess the appearance, taste
and flavor of Butter; upon further inquiry, how
ever, he ascertained that it was simply a sub. '
stance that the natives distilled in a crude and
imperfect manner, from a rich and luxuriant
plant that grew spontaneously and abundantly in
that warm tropical country. A few yea rs ago,
an eminent French chemist, while on a profes
sional visit to the tropics, made numerous exper
iments wltn this remarkable production of na
ture, and succeeded in extracting a concentrated
essence of the plant. The formula for itB Preps,-
ration, and' the Sole Right 1 ,, r . Its sale In this
country are the exclusive property of this Com
pany, by whom it was purchased from the origi
nal discoverer. We claim for this remarkable,
yet simple and perfectly harmless preparation—
llts.—That by Its use a net gain of from 50 to 200
per cent. is made in the manufacture of Butter.
2d.—That Butter, which from age or whatever
cause, may be strong, rancid, streaked or
coarse-grained, and comparatively useless for
general use, by the aid of this Extract, is re
stored to it s original freshness and sweetness,
fine-grain, and even color.
3d.—By the use of this Extract, one pound of
delicious, fresh Butter Is actually made from
one pint of milk.
4th.—That a pure and excellent table Butter can
be made, at a cost of from 15 to 20 c nts per
pound. The chief eiVense wherein being But
?er, which is the essential base.
sth.—That Butter manufactdred by the aid of
this Extract Is equal i in every respect to the best
Butter made - by the ordinary method.
6th.-The Extract after thorough analysts, by
able chemists, Is pronounced perfectly free from
any deleterious substance, the ingredients be-
log purely of a vegetable nature•
St.h.—ln proof of .he foregoing assertions, the
factory of this company Is magosg one ton of
Butter per day, which meets with ready sale
in the New York 3irrket. and Is consumed from
the tables of the first Hotels, Restaurants and
Private families in this city and elsewhere.
A sample package of the Extract (sufficient to
make 50 ihs. of Butter) with full directions for
use, will be sent to any address on receipt of $l.
CAUTION.-•As articles of real merit are sub-.
Ject to spurious imitations, we Would specially
caution the public against counterfeits and worth
