A VALUABLE. Ex.f.k.:nruENT.--31r. G. P.
Broillier, the well known soap mannfactur
er,nt,tbe corner of SiNth and Rolland streets,
has applied the abandoned Seventh street
oil well to a practical purpose, which prom
ise, to he attended with important results to
the community in general. The well yields
a large amount of gas, and Mr. 8., alter haul .0
it cleaned, extended a pipe to lib nianulitc
6,ry, means of which he secures an abund
ance .of gas to - light,- heat- and run the
establishment. All the large kettles in
the - building are heated by the'gas, and sum•
dent is furnished to keepseveritl in operation
at one
. time..'l3eslde heating the kettles the
gas warms the building, and supplies all the
light needed. A simple apparatus at the
well regulates the supply; 'and whenever
more gas is furnished than the establishment
requires, a self acting valve changes the cur
rent into the escape Pipe. The whole ar
ring,ement is very ingenious, and
,well worth
an examination. The gas exhibits no symp
tom of reduction in quantity or quality, nd
will save Mr. B. many hundreds of dollars
yearly. Ile Is of the opinion that the earth
beneath our city contains sufficient gas, to
afford all the heat and light needed for the
use of the citizens, and believes that the time
will come when its advantages will be gener
ally availed of. Beside the . establishment
mentioned, we believe. the works of H.
ffarecki & Co., have been in part run, f.r
considerable period, with gas from another
abandoned oil well.
,Wanyem.---One of the most pros
perous, as it is one of the best conducted, es
tablishments in Erie, is the extensive drug
store and "glass house of Hall & Wartel, on
State street, between Seventh and the Park.
It occupies the whole of a lour story building,
with basement,having a large three story addi-
tion in the rear, with front on Seventh street.
The first floor of the main huilding k occu
pied by the retail department ; the ith street
entrance is used. for wholesale l ila shipping
purposes generally': - The stock embraces
every variety of articles kept in a store of
the kind; - the firm taking an especial pride In
having a full stock of eyery thieg that is likely
to be called for, either . in the' wholesale or
retail trade, awl the wonderful success that
has attended than_ tunplitattests the appre_: ,
elation of their enterprise by the public. It
is a common saving, whenever inquiries arc
made for articles of rare use : "Go to
Warfas ; they keep anything you
catt,call fpr." -
The firm make-a speciality of-French
which they import direct from the Illinufae
turer3 la immense quantities. The fact is
not flattering -to our national pride, but Is
none the less true, that the French glass is
infinitely superior to that of American:man
dfacture. It is Weer from blemishes, clearer
and whiter, and contains so .many points of
superiority that any one examining the sam-'
ples is convinced at a glance. The cost is a
trifle higher, but the -difference in quality
much more thin makes up. 3lessrs. llall
& Warfel keep every size and thickness, and
aro prepared to supply.stores, public buildings
and private houses to-any oxtent needed.
Their stock of Ainerican glass is. also large,
so that purchasers have the opportunity of
taking their choice.
We advise all persons in need of goods in
their line to reatlMes.srs; Ilan &Warfel's ad
vertisement, and give thenia p . „11 before lay

Dispatch nails attention to the al - vantages of
the route thrbugh that place for obtaining
a connection between 'the Atlantic & Great
- Western R. R. aed onr harbor; over that
proposed from Jamestown, N. Y. The for
mer route, he says, is .only twenty miles in
length, through 'a comparatively level coun
try, with little bridging and easy grades.
The Jamestown route is sixty miles long, the
country rough, and numerous streams to •be
crossed. If these statements can be .relied
upon, there should be no hesitation which
line to adopt, and if our citizens are wise
they will waste no time in putting ,the pro
posed road under headway. 'A connentin. '
with the Erie road would enable us tosecure
new markets for our wholesale trade, that
would iecompense in part for those we
have lost by the superior enterprise of But
and Pittsburgh.
