A a Stock company is being formed hereabouts to explore for Petroleum on the farm of Benjamin f. Mckune two Miles West of Here on the line of the Erie and upon the Banks of the Susquehanna River. For years past crude Petroleum has been gathered from a Brook running across the farm simply by dipping a cloth therein and and wringing it out. Until now however no Steps Tiave been taken towards forming a Stock company to explore. Two thousand six Hundred dollars Are needed to commence operations of this sum $1,200 has already been subscribed. Ten years ago our citizens spent about $5,000 in Boring for Oil on the opposite Side of this River. The fever then existing probably incited the planting of several Gallons of the liquid. Property Rose rapidly and fell twice As rapidly after Oil failed to come from a depth a of one thousand feet. Everything except the Hole and the right of Way was sold to the contract tors in this Case however we have no a reason to doubt the existence of the Oil. Or. Mckune a willing 16 spend his portion of the Money to be raised he is not anxious to dispose Jef any of his land. And he is not the Man to deceive anybody. Oil certainly exists on the Mckune farm. Whether or not in paying quantities As in the Case of the coals remains to be sure. A that All men Are not honest is Weli known fief and especially Weli known1 to printers. The a Bradford Argus Mau has recently been a Hurt a and talks in this Wise some time ago we received proposals from or. Siva one amp son 830 North Goth Street Philadelphia to advertise their medicines. They now us hence these tears. We have occasionally been a taken iut by humbugs but to think that we advertised Patent medicines to kill off our read Era and then get no Racket the soul we. Hope Swayne will have the liver complaint so today that he who either Haye to take his own noisome drugs or the Printer. He can never get to heaven without settling our Bill. During the past 10 Days several attempts at burglary attended with More or less Success have been made. The most important was that at Llie store of Griffis amp Sayre,1 the particulars of which we find in the Republican. Some time during Friday night thieves broke into the basement of Griffins amp Sayress extensive grocery and hardware store. It was without doubt the same party that committed the burglary at Bullards store night of the we Etc previous. They entered the basement from an Alley in the rear through a window out of the upper Sash of which they Cut several transoms and while performing the operations one of them must have Cut himself As drops of blood were visible on the panes of the lower Sash in . Or. Sayre says the thieves took no tiling unless perhaps sopa Ethino of Little value that the firm has not yet discovered. He thinks the thieves were scared away before they had time to pack up anything Lor removal. Liere is a House on the other Side of the Alley directly opposite to where the thieves entered the store and if a Blind on one of the front windows of this House were raised after dark while a lamp was burning it would let a flood of Light Stream into the basement of the store. It is ill. Sayress opinion that that is what put the House Quot after entered the store a Blind May have been raised and they were forced to leave and in a different Way from that in which they entered. They went out through aside window which they opened and after climbing Over a High Fence,.came.out on the Alley some distance from where they entered the store. We predict it will not be Long before some of these House Breakers will have their diaphragms peppered with Buck Bhot. That it will become necessary for each citizen to. Protect his own property so erns evident. A a Quot a a. --------1.�. ,.

T emigrating to texa8.-the Texas fever seems to be raging in some parts of the country and Many persons have already emigrated to the Lone Star state and others Are a preparing to follow. A few restless ones in this Vicinus have been talking the subject up but we have heard of none starting asyl to. What particular inducement has been offered that should move so Many we have not Learned but we fear that too Many Are entering into the movement from Mere excitement. This is one of weakness of the people of this country. Hence we caution those in this locality who propose to emigrate to that Distant state to first make themselves thoroughly conversant with its resources.

But i advise All who think of coming Here to earn a living to stay at Home. Thirty or forty dollars there is better than fifty Here.
