who had been forEime time prospec

in Fcarch of the precious minerals,
was highly elated over a discovery he
had made of a tunning conl oil spiing.
It is tiluatcd on tly West side of Little j
Ealj cretlj. There isa steady stream, ;
about one inch in tie, conslan'ly
llrwing, and it has impregnated the
tunounding rcil for a space of peihap I
tin acres, over whicli a criitt has
fornled. It is about twoiity-five mil.s0
from Union, on the route of the pro- ,
posed road to the mines. Mr. MiII.t
says he was a retiden of the coal oil
dUtiicts of Pcntuylviuiia. for many
years, knows what be ie talking about,
and 'bis is the genuine ar'iel . He is
highly il.ited owr (he l:ud and is con- i
lident he has a lonan.a. Such is,, in .
tubstance, the information elicited
from Mr. M.ller by our reporter, and
wj give it for what it is worth. Dis-
coveries of oil have recui'ly betn '
made near Tacoma. in W. T.. and it
is not improbal lo that the nigged and
unexj lored mountains of Union coun

The proprietors finding their present

many customers, and large stock of good!?,
have erected a splendid store building, in
to which they will move in a few dnys. It
is a large structure, well arranged and well

Adjoining tho store is a large Are proof cel
lar. They have on route and are receiving
tlio m-giMt stock of general merchandise
ever brought to that section of the coun
try, and propose to sell goods hh cheap as
they can be sold anywhere!. Judging from
the way they arc selling things we are of
