Another Town Heard From!
East Brady and Vicinity.
East Brady, Pa., Sept. 18, 1871.
Dear Editor : In this letter I pro
pose to give you through humble en
deavor, a weak response to the weekly
visits of your paper, by a few inciden
tal remarks of East Brady and vicini
East Brady, Clarion Co., ia situated
ou the opposite side of the river from
Brady's Bend, in Armstrong Co., and
like it derives its name from its being
the scene of some of the most daring
adventures and gallant explots of the
renowned Capt. Brady, who figured
so conspicuously in Border History be
tween the years 1779 and 1791. The
country surrounding is rich in iron
and coal ; and the Brady's Bend Iron
Works are amongst the largest in the
State, giving remunerative employ
ment to above 1500 men, and turning
out every week an average of 350 tons
of R. R. Rails, which sell at from $75
to $80 per ton. They have been in
operation for nearly thirty years, and
their supply of mineral is still lar-e
and sufficient. It is stated that the
first "T" Rail ever manufactured in
the TJ. S. was made at these works.
The Armstrong oil field, like other
parts of the Oil Dorado, contributes
its portion to the joys and the sorrows
of those who court its favors in pro
portion, as they are more or less able
to withstand the losses and draw the
blanks until the prize is finally reach
cd. Some succeed; more fail. Al
though oil id found in some quantities
in nearly every well.the great depth of
the oil bearing rock (from 1200 to
1350 feet) renders a small yield of oil
almost as entire a loss as a dry hole.
This fact, together with the sudden
falling off in production of some of
the roost promising wells soon after
"striking" constitutes the obiections to
this territory and has had the effect of
greatly retarding development. But
there are many good wells, and some
parties have made money here. This ter
ritory is on line southwest by 5 degrees
south with the best producing oil dis
tricts above, and is the southwestern
limit to which oil has been discovered
in paying quantities in the State.
East Brady, where four years ago
but a few scattering houses could be
seen, now proudly feels itself a town of
the first magnitude, and of rapidly
growing importance. It now contains
a population of 1200 inhabitants, up
ports a spicy weekly paper, the Eatt
Brady Independent, edited ai.d pub
lished by the indomitable Col. Youug,
formerly of the Chrion Banner. The
Loppy Col., through the healthy en
couragement of paying subscribers is
building one of the finest residences in
town, and is soon to give a grand par
ty in honor of its completion, when
your correspondent expects to be a fa
vored guest. Then more anon.
The people here have the "go-ahead-ativeness"
requisite to the successful
advancement of any town, and East
Brady will soon bo known for its
manufactories. On account of the in
exhaustable supply of mineral in the
surrounding hills, convenience of ship
ping and cheapness of village proper
ty, no place in the State offers greater
inducements to manufacturers. A
large foundry and machine shop i ex
pected to be built here. And there is
now in successful operation a. Sash aud
Poor factory, and a Prussian Blue fac
tory whose goods are as readily sold
in New York as the genuine impoited
w. r. dunn
And Ye Hotels 1 Yes, I must men
tion mine host and hostess of the
Lawrence House, formerly of Tioncsta.
William is more genial than ever. Id
fact he ia developing himself to fill the
position. Why you ought to have just
seen him when Grady's circus was
here. The circus took the whole town
"in" on the balloon ascension, and
William took the whole circus in be
sides accommodating his many custo
mers in a neat and becoming style.
You would, be pleased to see him on
suth dikvs, quickly in all places at
once, geuteely waiting on his many
friends, clearly proving that he "knows
how to keep hotel." If you ever come
here don't fail to call at the Lawrence
House. They will be glad to see you.
You can not take the landlord "down"
by rushing in upon him expecting to
find them unprepared, at dinner, but
you will instead contentedly take
down a most elegant and sumptuous
repast fit to ticklo the plate of the
finest epicurian taste. As the dinner
bell is no ringing I will adjourn for
this very purpose.
Yours apctitely, Gusto.
Oil City Correspondent.
Oil City, Sept. 23, 1871.
Dear Republican: I rise from
obscurity once more to furnish you
with one of my semi-occasional letters,
for I havu't died of cholera, nor the
small pox, nor have I been run over
by the cars. Since I wrote last our
city has been enlivened by the advent
of a new daily paper, The Derrick
which bids fair to be a good one, and
also by one of the "oldest citizens"
falling through one of our many man
traps which are so promiscuously scat
tered through the city, injuring
himself in a manner almost fatal.
This latter incident had the effect of
causing a general nailing up of holes
and dangerous places, and the suffer
ing of one is, in this instance, for the
benefit of the many.
We are much exercised just now
over the question of the car shops of
the O. C. & A. R. Ry. The managers
of the road have signified their inten
tion of removing the said shops from
Corry where they are now situated,
and Titusville and Oil City are en
gaged in a strife, not altogether ami
cable, for their possession. Oil City
agrees to present to the railroad, land
within the city limits worth $30,000,
if the shops are placed thereon, and
the proposition, together with oflers
from Titusville, Corry and Union are
being considered by the Directors of
the Company at Philadelphia.
The foundations of some five or six
new brick blocks have been laid since
my last letter and the buildings then
in progress are very nearly approach
ing completion. The improvements
made here this summer have stamped
a look of permanancy upon the city
which it never before wore.
The many friends of Judgo Dale
were pleased to see his genial face up
on the 6treeU here, a few days ago,
showing that the severe railroad acci
dent through which he passed hadu't
used him up entirely, but that he is in
a fair way to be himself again ; may
his full recovery be speedy.
The President's visit here was mark
ed by the usual curious crowd, but the
order that was maintained was in
marked contrast with the noisy jostling
crowds that annoyed him at the other
points on his route. We, Oil Citzens,
know how to behave ourselves, and if
you, Mr. Editor, will come and see us
once more, we'll endeavor to composo
ourselves, and behave iu the same
comely manner that we did when the
other distinguished gentleman, above
named, honored us with bis presence.
Yours Sincerely, S.
Correspondence from Various Local
ities. Our correspondents whose letters ap
pear under this heading will please ex
cuse us for condensing their pro
ductions for this week. We had al
ready a correspondence from Oil City
and one from East Brady in type when
they arrived, and not having room for
the latfer in full, we condense them at
the risk of spoiling their beauty :
Claringtox, Sept. 20, 1871.
Ed. Republican: A meeting of
the lumbermen opposed to the "Clarion
River Navigation Co.," was held at
this place last Saturday. They de
cided to try to get the act incorporating
said company repealed, as to the por
tion tL&t is embraced in the river from
Raughts Mills to the mouth of the
Creek. Several petitions to that effect
were circulated to obtain signers, and
it is thought that the move will be

Mr. P. Hadfield recently bad his
right foot aud leg crushed by reason
of missing his footing while skidding
a log, and letting it roll upon him. He
will be laid up for some time to come.

Baltimore have been sojouring with
us for short time. On Monday last
Master Penuington bagged fifteen
On Tuesday evening last Messrs.
Emery & Freeman gave the men in
their employ a party at the house of
the latter. It passed off pleasantly.
The supper was excellent and reflect
ed great credit on the ladies who sup
erintended the culinary department.
Master Frankie Brown, aged 6 years,
favored us with a jig which would
have done credit to a professional. Mr.
Chaa McGanigan performed the
"Highland Fling," by request, with
all the grace of a lady.
Before closing allow me to return
thanks in behalf of the ladies of Fort
Pitt, who visited your celestial little
city, for the -kind and hospitable man
ner in which they were entertained.
Especially would they return their
thanks to the Forest Brass Band, for
the serenade tendered them. Should
they ever visit Fort Pitt they will al
ways find the "latch-string out," and a
hospitable welcome within.
