Tam On. Itanz —The last month has wit
nessed a great revival in the oil market. Crude
oil at the wells has gone up 40 and 50 cents to
$1 76 and $2 00 per barrel, and a correspond
ing increase has been experienced in refined
oil. Two months since, the hitter was a drug in
the Pittsburg market at 18 and 20 cents—it
now is in demand at 40 and 45 ; and at Phila
delphia brings 50 and 55, and even higher
prices in New York. The refineries on Oil
creek—of which there are between forty and
fifty, with ten or twelve more scattered through
Crawford and Penang° counties—are running
in full blast; and shippers from the -east are
running to and fro among them, and baying
their products at prices that pay good profits to
the operators. At present the demand is
merely for exportation to different parts of
Europe, where this new light appears to be as
welcome as at home ; and it no doubt pals the
importers well, as in the matter of exchange, if
nothing is realized on the oil, they will make a
profit of 40 per cent. As the winter season is
approaching, the demand will still increase,
and we may look for prices running up to a
still higher figure, than rules at present. We
may safely estimate the demand as double what
it was one year ago, and the supply of crude oil
we may safely estimate at not more than one
half what it was a year since. Drilling has
commenced again, however, in good earnest,
and we may,soon expect to hear of more mon
ster wells being struck.
A number of new refineries are going up at
different points along and adjacent to the creek,
and in some cases companies who have been
refining at ,points hundreds of miles distant,
have torn down their works and are removing
them to where the crude material is produced.
We believe that others will find this step neces
sary, in order to compete with those located
there, and that before another year rolls roiand,
the refineries will, with rare exceptions, be lo
cated near the wells.—Mercer Dispatch, Oct. 81.
GATIDDRING AND KAMM APPLss.—ln order to
secure soundness and preservation, it is indis
pensably necessary that the fruit should be
gathered by; hand. For. winter - fruit, the' gath
eriogis delayed is long As pcosible, avoiding
severe frosts, and the most successful practise
with our most extensive orchardists is to place
the good fruit diriOtly, in a careful manner„ in
new, tight flour tarrels, as soon as gathered
from the tree. These barrels should be gently
shaken while filling, and the head closely press
ed 1x . ,1 ; -they axe Allen 4400. ins cool, shady ex
posure, under a shed open to the air, or on the
north side of a building, protected by a cover
ing of boards over the top, where they remain
for a fortnight, or until the cold becomes too
severe, when they are carefully transferred to
a cool, dry cellar, in which the air can be ; ad
mitted occasionally in brisk weather. A cellar
for this purpose should be dug in dry, gravelly
or sandy soil ; with, if possible, a slope to, the
north, or, at any rate, with openings on the
north aide for the admission of air very rarely
in weather not excessively cold. Here barrels
should be placed on tiers on their sides, and the
cellar should be kept as dark as possible. In
such a cellar, one of the largest apple growers in
Dutcheas county , is able to keep the Greening
apple, which in the fruit room usually decays
in January, , until the first of April, in the fresh
est and finest condition. Soma persons place a
layer of clean rye straw between the layers of
apples, when packing them in barrels. •
A SHARPER recently succeeded in swindling
the Jersey Shore, Lock Haven and Bellefonte
banks to the amount of nearly nine thousand
dollars. He also tried the game at the West
Branch Bank, says the Lycoming Gazette of this
week, but did not succeed. His mode of ope
rations was about as follows : He procured
elsewhere, from responsible parties, sight drufts, ,
for a few dollars, on New York. By some
chemical or other process he removed the lines
naming the small amounts and left the drifts
blank, to be filled to any amount he might
choose. On coming into this section of country
he represented himself as an extensive fur and
hide merchant, with stores In Chicago and New
York, and set a number of men to work propu
ring furs and hiderifor him. To pay for these,
as he represented, he filled his drafts, drew the
money from the banks, and then- skedaddled,
leaving banks and hide and fur gatherers ,to
gather wisdom from their experience. T'he
scamp conducted operations on an extensive
scale, and was thoroughly conversant with
everything he undertook—talked business and
per tentage like a Girard or an Astor, and drove
everything like a locomotive.
INOIDENT OF THE BATTLE FLELD ! -
During the week of battles in front of Wash
ington Gen. Bayard went forward, under a
flag oetruce, to meet and confer with his old
comrade in arms, the now famous J. B.
Stuart, of the rebel cavalry. Less than two
years ago, Jeb. was first lieutenant and Bayard
second lieutenant in the same company ; but
Jeb. is now a major general and Bayard a brig
adier. During the interview, a wounded
Union soldier lying near, was groaning and
asked' for water. "Here Jeb." said . Bayard--
old time recollections making him familiar—
as he tossed his bridle to the rebel officer,
"hold my horse a minute, will you, till I fetch
that poor fellow some water." Jeb. held the
bridle. Bayard went to a stream and brought
the wounded man ,spine . water.. As Bayard
`mounted Ida horse,leb.`ramarked thatlie had
not for some time " . played orderly to a Union
general." The business upon which they met
was soon arranged, and the old friends parted
—a fight, which had ceased while they were
engaged talking, recommenced with great fury
on both sides the moment each got back to his

have white woolens shrink when washed, make
a good suds of hard soap, and wash the flannels
in it. Do not rub woolens like cotton cloth, but
simply squeeze them between the hands, or

The suds used should be strong, and the woolens
should be rinsed in warm water, By rubbing

water, they soon become very thick.

No comment of the General Commanding
can add any force to the above recital of facts.
All the members of the court present at the
finding and sentence recommend a revision of
the sentence, "in consideration of the , previous
good character of Col. Owen and his distin
guished services in the present war." This
recommendation is supported by testimony of
the highest character adduced upon the trial,
showing that the accused has been a zealous
and obedient officer, and has displayed great
gallantry and good conduct on the field of
The sentence of the court is remitted.
The General Commanding trusts that the
deep humiliation which the events themselves
and the publicity of these proceedings must
cause the accused, will prevent the leniency
here extended from producing injurious influ

A SAD Broay.—The Hartford Press relates
that between three and four weeks ago the
wife of Mr. George L. Ford, of Glastenbury,
Connecticut, who has mourned unceasingly
over the lose of two children three or four
years ago, and had recently been troubled
with churchitlifficulties, spiritualism, &c., and
was in poor health, became violently butane.
Her father:and mother, Mr. Luciano Talcott
and wife, came to assist her husband in taking
care of her, and after .four days and nights of
incessant care, Mr. Ford, Mr. Talcott and wife
also became insane—through a sort of mesmeric
influence, Mr. Ford thinks—and ail four were
shouting and breaking all the furniture in the
house. The neighbors removed Mr. Ford
from the presence of his wife, when he became
rational again and remains so. Mrs. Ford was
removed to the ilmane Retreat. Mr. Talcott
and wife were taken tuere a few days - latter,
and Mr. Talcott has since died. All the par.
ties are of respectability and property. Mr.
Talcott and wife were spiritualists.
TRANSPORTATION OF Diformars.—The follow
ing statement shows the number of emigrants
who have been furnished with transportation
on the Pennsylvania Railroad this year. The
majority of the number were bound for points
west' of Pittsburg. Northern Indians, Northern
Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota receive large
proportions of them :
The Richmond Dispatch, of the 24th, eye
" A Yankee invasion is designed to which all
that we have yet seen of invasion is mere child's
play. We speak it, not for the purpose of
creating unnecessary alarm, but to warn our
people of what they have to expect, and to pre
pare them for the occasion. We know not
hat preparations may have been made to meet
and repel the foe, but we know that the authori
ties are well aware of his intentions. We h ave
no belief that we can be finally beaten here
upon our own soil, but we must dismiss
hdons, agreeable as they may be, and learn to
look at the grim reality."
BEHOLD THE lIPHIGHT.-MTS. Upright, wife
of Mr. J. Upright, of Rockville, Sheriff of
Winnebago county, Illinois, has eight eons in
the army, fighting the battles of the Union.
She has also three more left ready for the next
call for volunteers. Is it any wonder that
Illinois has filled hPr quota and has ten thou
sand surplus?, If any other county in the
State can show eight brothers in the army we
should like to know it?
