Cornplanter Oil Company. The Annual, _" Bepoit of this enterprising and successful Company, in the carbon oil business , ia before us. The Company owns two hundred and twenty acres of land on Oil Creek, in the very heart of the oil-yielding region, which was purchased within the two last years for $16,000. From the few wells already sunk, the Company has realized 18,033 barrels of oil. A single well yielded 8,000 barrels, but at length became exhausted, and the daily yield of oil to the Company is now from 140 to 160 barrels. A portion of the property has been laid off in lots, which are leased to other parties, at bonuses of from $300 to $550 each. Thus far, after subtracting all expensess, the estimated gain has been no less than $51,233.02—certainly a most flattering resalt. The Directors are, Bobert H. Davis, James L. Camaghan, Theo. H.

THe Bestroyer and,His victim. On a hot Summer day, a gentleman sat down to think over a subject on which his mind was greatly troubled. He was wondering how it was that so many of the young men of his acquaintance had yielded to temptation, and been _destroyed. He was wondering how: the great tempter, could sp soon get them entangled in his nets, and never let them loose again till they were ruined. _Khile he,was thinking over the subject, he saw a worm moving along softly in the footpath. He moved quietly and without any fear. " Now," said the gentleman to himself, " that poor worm can go safely, though it has no reason to guide it. There lies in wait no destroyer to entangle it, while our young men, with reason and conscience, are destroyed by, scores!" Just then he saw a _sp ider dart 'across the path, about a foot in front of the worm. She did npfc appear to be thinking of the worm, nor: the: worm, of her.

The Contented Cripple.

Thehot elthat; he wasin would not have been considered fit for animals in. America. It was built of mud, had only the ground for a floor, and a single low room. He was lying on his back, with nothing under him but a piece of coarse hair bagging, and his head was supported by a very small and thin straw pillow, resting upon a uile of stones. He was covered with rags and filth, and his bodily infirmities excited our deepest pity. His. bony hands were drawn firmly together, so that he eould by_r no means open them, and his elbows were quite stiff. The flesh was gone from both hands and arms, and I presume, in a great measure, from his whole body. If ever there was in this world an object of pity, ,tbat man was such an object. And yet, from the time we entered the room until we left...

~ fairied JWfc. No stream flows so smoothly but that somewhere on its surface a ripple appears, and no married life but, has here and there moments of disagreement. Two .human beings who Jhave _nofr yet become perfect, cannot; be perpetually together without sometimes thinking differently and willing in opposition to _dnS another. I know that there are here and there a husband and wifew,ho are conscious of no -such; pppdsition,. who can look over possibly years of uninterrupted coinmunings and undivided purposes, and who might easily suppose that it is because they evermore are the same in thought and purpose. But, I take it. it is rather that impelled by a mutual affection, and; ;keen-sighted wisdom, they have unconsciously learned to allow nothing for a moment to stand between their hearts. To accomplish this, a husband and wife must guard against _thti beginning of estrangements. The lasting alienations, the separations,,the divorces, do not spring at once out of somegreat vi...

Then back she flew, nor look'd behind, But hasten'd on with rapid wing ; Noah, compassionate and kind, Put forth his hand and;took:her in.

.: Punctuation. ' The; points5 nbwused in punctuation were introduced into _#riting gradually, some time after the invention of printing. The Greeks had none I and there was no space between their words. The Eomans put a kind of division between their words thus Publicus, Scipio, Africanus. Upon the end of the fifteenth century only the periodj colon, and comma had been introduced. The latter came into use latest, and was only a perpendicular figure .or line proportionate to the size of the letter. To Aldus _Manutiusj an eminent printer, in 1570, we are indebted for. the semicolon, and also for the. wesent _formi;of the comma. He also, laid dtfwiirules now _observed in regard to their use.
