THE WAS SEWS.
On the morning the of 7th the 5th corps,
with three divi-ions of the 2d, and two bri
gades of Grecg's cavalry, Army of the Po
tomac, moved south towards Stony creek
Station, on a reconnoi.-ance. Some firing
was heard in that direction, and it is sup
posed that Mime fijhting took place between
Gen. Warren and the enemy. Nothing
defHnaie is known, however.
Another reconnoi.-ance was made towards
Hatcher s ran south of Petersburg, on the
th. The rebel vilcttes were driven across
the run, when. after some sharp skirmishing,
our troops charged some rebel breastworks
on the opposite side, and covered them
the rebels making good their retreat. We
Iom 17 men woundt-d in this affair. Rebel
loss not known.
On the 7th. some troops under Gen. Lud
low were thrown across the James river,
who, after some skirmishing succeeded in"
o Tupj ing the rebel position opposite Dutch
Gap which relieves our troops working on
tho canal from Rebel annovar ce.
An Important Suggestion.
The suggestion made py Mr. Lincoln, in
his message, 'that it might be "both compe
tent ami expedient f jr Congress to provide
that a limited amount of some future issue
of public securities might be held by any
bon-i fid- purchaser exempt from taxation,
and from seizure for debt, under such re
stric:ion.s and limitations as might be neces
sary to guard against abuse of so important
a privilege." is conceded to be both origin
al and eminently worthy of consideration.
No inconsiderable portion of the National
debt might be placed thus in hands where it
would operate as a perpetual benefit much
in the nature of a life insurar ce, only it
would be earning instead of costing some
thing annually. In consideration of the
proposed exemptions, an abatement of some
part of the usual interest would save the
nation millions annually. Not the least of
the arguments in favor of the suggestion, is j
il. f M
me incentive 10 men oi suiau means io gei
enough ahead to avail themselves of the
provision, "against a rainy day," and ena
ble them to lay aside a mm exempt .from
the contingencies of life and fortune. It is
not difficult to sec that this may be the germ
of a grand system of National economy and
beneficence. Pittsburgh Commercial.

CLEAEPIELD SALT TvELLS.
The starch for pretroleum cow in pro
gTera! ia tLis county, has awakened consider
able interest in the salt-veli bored many
ytars ago along the river, and on C'earfit-ld
crek. The existence of.falt U indicated at
i many points aluii our streams by the natu
ral "licks," or places where the deer and
cattle come to drink on account of the .-alt-
ne.s of the water. We do not know when
I the 5r.-t eff-.rts were made to procure salt in
i quantities. Lut as eaily as a well was
bored l.y Dr. -J. P. Iloyt and Job 1'acker,
about one mile and a half above Curwetis
ville. The site selected fur their experiment
I vra at the foot of a high hill, and about
thirty feet from the brink of the river. The
modus ofternwli was exceedingly simple.
' Steam engines were not in vogue, and the
j neeeary power was obtained from a lever
jwoikcd with a treadle by two boy. The
j tlriil wa- fastened to the end of a pole or
j rol. to which other rod were screwed as the
we1 increased in depth, tfome idea of the
i te'Ii'-1' character of the experiment.and the
patient perseverance requisite in proscutir.g
may be formed from trie length of time
required to draw out the whole length of-;
TG ever-v ti,!,e lt wai necessary to sharpen
lhe JSL or discharge the ground-up ins-
m-nts that collected at the bottom of the
hole. It had to be done with every few
inches sunk, and it was necessary alter thus
drawing out ail the rods to which the drill
was attached, to send them down atiain with
s.nd-fock, they penetrated a coal seam six
feet in thickness, the last through which
tl ey passed, underlying which wa about ten
feet of slate and soap-stone (probably fire
clay): they then entered a sand-rock which
continued for about three hundred feet, va
rying in texture and hardness, with occa
sional thin bands of iron ore : at about, three

red slate abo;t five feet thick; then "into
sand-rock again, in whii h. at a depth of four
hundred feet from the surface they found
salt water. The salt manufactured from it
was dark and unsatisfactory, A stream now
flows from the well strong enough to turn
a mill. It is impregnated with salt, and de
posits rod oxide of iron.
Another well was bored, about twenty
years ago. on Clearfield creek n.jar the Cam
bria county line, by a company organized
for the purpose. Jonathan Boynton, Esq..
of this place was one of the officers. The
site selected was about five miles above Glen
Hope, an l the whole depth bored, five hun
dred and eighteen feet. The strata passed
through maybe stated as follows: Earth
and gravel 24 feet : black slate 7 feet 'i inch
es ; coal (j inches ; fire clay 13 feet ; coidand
slate 5 feet ; hard sand-rock 12 ieet : black
slate 2 feet 0 inch ?s : coal 5 feet : black slate
0 inches ; coal 4 feet ' inches; sand-rock 14
feet ; coal and slate 2 feet ; fire clay 34 feet :
sand-rock 135 feet; fire clay 5 feet ; sand
rock 200 feet. Salt water, very strong, was
obtained in abund inre. But the well hav
ing been bored without "reamers," the hole
was so crooked that they could not get the
tubing down. and the project was abandoned.
Other wells were bored at Salt Lick, lie
low Karthaus, where salt was manufactured
in considerable quantities. We have no au
thentic account of these, however, and can
not record their history, until some of our
friends in that vicinity are kind enough to
furnish us the data.
There are certain important and interest
ing deductions to be drawn from the facts
established by these old wells, together with
the one now in progress here. We do n.t
intend to do more at present, however,
than to put these facts on record for future

THE PEESIDEST'S MESSAGE.
On the outside of thLs days Journal will
be found President Lincoln's fourth annu
al message. Like all of his State papers,
it is a plain, business-like document. It
represents our relations with foreign coun
tries as being, generally, in a good condition ;
but, in view of the recent hostile demon
strations made upon some of our northern
border towns. by Rebel emissaries in Canada,
it has been thought proper to notify the
English Government that, after six months,
the United States will hold themselves at
liberty to increase their naval armament on
the Lakes. The public debt, on the 1st of i requested to open the proceedings with pray

war continue anotner year, it maj" De in
creased, perhaps, five hundred millions.
The National Banking system has proved
an entire success, and no less than 5s4 banks
had been organized under it on the 25th
day of November. The postal revenues of
the year ending June last were $12,43,
537 7. and the expenditures $12,644,76
20, showing an excess of the latterif ?206,

Navy shows a total of C71 vessels, and a-
i . i
bout 51. 000 men. including officer, in the
naval service. Since the last annual mes
sage, all the iruiMjrtant lines and jrositions
then occupied by our forces have been main
tained and our armies have made steady and
extensive advances into the revolted ter
ritory. The passage of a constitutional amend
ment abolishing slavery throughout the Uni
ted States, isrec lumen led. The President
says the passage of such an amendment of
the Constitution is only a matterj-f time
that if the present Congress does not pavs
the measure, the next certainly will.
The late election has developed the fact
that in the most important branch of Na
tional resources that of living men

The President repeats his declaration j Andrew Johnson, of Tenne-see, had
made a year ago that he will neither retract ! twenty-six votes tr Vice President of the
nor modify the Emancipation Proclamation.
On careful consideration of all the evidence
accessible, it seems to the President that rro
attempt at negotiation with the insurgent lea
der could result in any good. He would ac
cept nothing short of a severance of the U
nion, precisely what we will not and can not
give. His declarations to this effect are ex
plicit and oft-repeated ; he does not attempt
to deceive us : he affords us no excuse to
deceive ourselves. He cannot voluntarily
reaceept the Union, we cannot voluntarily
yield it. Between him and us the issue is
distinct, simple and inflexible. It is an issue
which can only be tried by war, and decided
by victory.. If we yield we are beat 211. If
the fc'onthern people fail him, he is beaten.
In stating a single condition of peace, Mr.
Lincoln says ''the war will cease on the part
of the (Government whenever it shall have
ceased on the part of those who begun it."
Orders for the organization of a corps, to
be made up of l'U.Omj veterans, who have ser
ved not less than two years, and been honor
ably discharged and therefore not liable to
draft have been issued by the Secretary of
lteeruits in this corps wili receive a special
bounty froni4the(iov rnment of :)0). besides
the usual pay and perquisites of volunteers.
Their first step is to present themselves to
the Provost Marshal of their proper district,
who if they le found qualified, will f'urni.-h
them with transportation to Washington,
Ik ('., where they will Iw mustered into the
sen ice of the I nited States.
'"lioeruirs will be credited to the district
in which they or their families are domicil
ed. As evidence of the place ol domicile,
the affidavit of the recruit will be required.
If ithall subsequently be ascertained that
the place of domicile has not been correctly
given. the credit will be taken from the place
to which it was erroneously assigned, and
transfered to the proper place ot domicile
of the recruit."
Whether the word "district" in this para
graph means ?wo-ditrict is not clear; but we
think it would not be quite safe for a sub-district
to pay a local bounty to a veteran
whose proper domicile is in another .-district,
even though it should be in the same
tJistrict. Neither do we believe that a sub
district could claim the exclusive credit of
one of its residents to whom it paid no lo
cal bounty; but that he would be credited
to the district at large. These points ouirht
to 1, and must be, more explicitly defined,
if the work is to be successful.
The impression prevails that individuals
may secure the services of veteran fultsti
tutes and put them into this corps. This
is a mistake. Pittsburg Gazette.

Seven years ago, Venango county, Penn
sylvania, was regarded as one of t ho poor
est, as it is one of the smallest counties in
the State of Pennsylvania. More than one
third of its entire surface could have been
purchased for Jess tnan three dollars per
acre. Its best improved farms would bring
little if anything v;ver thirty dollars per acre,
and its entire industrial products did not ex
ceed threehundred thousand doilars. Choice
oil lands sell now readily at from three to
five thousand dollars per acre, and they have
been sold as high as forty -five thousand dol
lars per acre. The yield of oil from t lie
county during the last year wa.s over fifty
millions of dol ars, or great r than the en
tire coal and iron trade of the entire State
of Pennsylvania, and Siumld the present
price of oil be sustained, the produce will

for it augmenting in the same proportion.
It is rapidiy displacing other sub.-tanees as

the same will be true of Europe. Predic
tions are made that it will be extensively
consumed in the production of gas,esj eeial

will be a great saving in the difference of
the cost of transportation. Nor is it at all
unlikely that it will be applied to generating
steam in ocean navigation.
There need be no fear of the failure of
the supply. The extent of the oil bearing
territory and the richness of the depoMis,
is such that it may be considered inexhaust

New York, Western Virginia and Ohio.
