April The interest shown in Mr. Gladstone's speech Thursday night increases as the lime approaches. There being no loagur any chance to secure aeata to -vrknwi the debate having been Oi by people are looking forwaiii to the next best means of obtaining prompt and accurate information of what is going on in tbe House. An enterprising priutina house announces that it has made arrangements by means of a larye corps shorthand writers and punters lo isaue sheets every quarter of an hour Mr. Gladstone is speaking so tbat lb.2 crowd around Parliament build- ings muy read tbe Premier's sneecb about as fast us il is delivered.

Nearly all the papers to-rliiy published purports to be nsemi-anfchentiu fnre- cnst of Mr. Gladstone's scheme govern- ment for Ireland.' Ft amouals to utmost total separation. There is no reason to be- lieve thai is any more than a guess like the scores of which have preceded it. The complete silence which Mr. Glad- stone has maintained as to hia plans ia one of the most strikiug features of the polili- cal history of the past few months. No matter ho-.v widely his announcement ou Thursday night may differ from what has been attributed to him by commou repoil no one will be able to accuse him of stulti- ficntion of inconsistency. All Mr. Cham- berlain's arguments against Lhe financial burdens of land purchase may be upset by one of tbc brilliant monetary schemes lor which Mr. Gladalone ia famous. He rarely fails to convince the House of his ability to solveJioancKil problems which would be impossible to less dextrous manipulators of the treasury's resources.

COCflEASTON. The Times It was reported last week tbat a well would be drilled for oil or in Wyman's a ha'f mile west of and be completed before the of June. Some parties from Oil City were leasing bnt whether the drill will he started soon we nre not so certain. Two wells were drilled io this the first being near where afterwards stood the cheese by cit- izens of Cochranton. Some oil ood consid- erable gas was and Mr. R. aince had his whiskers badly singed by an. explosion while the well waa being tested. Tbe second well wag drilled farther np the ravine by W. Read acd George Bell in 1867. found oil aand and bad a good b8t the company did not fur- nish them within 150 feet of enongh lob- ing to reach the bottom of the well and no oil of any account was pumped. Both wells were drilled and the Grst die not reach the third consequently the test of the territory was a very poor one. Along with other experienced have always believed that oil would some day be found in this vicinity. The regular second and third sands were found ii the last well and an operator now n-days would not think of testing a well as it was not enough tubing to reach the sand. It takes several wells to test any new territory and we hope if lhe new company once begins operations they will thoroughly lest the territory before abandoning the field. GEOLOGY.
