MOSQUITO PLAINS. August 21, 1861 The usual monthly court was held here yes terday, Messrs. G B. Scott; S.M-, A, F. Gun ning, H. Jones, and J Carter, J.P-'s on^jhe bench. There were three cases for t'ial, two of which came on for hearing;, the third being postponed. Anderson v. Orr, claim of &lt;£30 for wages Defendant o'dered to pay &lt;£8, and each to pay his own expenses O'Connor v, Mac V ay. Plaintiff in this case sued on behalf of two Hack fellows employed by defendant. They claimed respectively .£2 8s. and £2 2s Defendant alleged that he had paid them in -goods After hearing, he was ordered to pay an additional £1 9s to one and is to the other.

HORRIBLE EXPLOSION OF OIL WELLS. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 23 August 1861
HORRIBLE EXPLOSION OF OIL WELLS. During the drilling of an oil well at Tidione, Pennsylvania, recently, a sudden rush of oil, at the rate of 70 barrels an hour, took place, the stream ascending 41 feet above the surface of the ground. Above this mass of oil the gas or benzine rose in a cloud, for 50 or 60 feet. All the fires in the neighbourhood were immediately &nbsp; extinguished, excepting one 400 yards distance. The fire from this ignited the floating gas, and in a moment the whole air was in roaring flames. As soon as the gas took fire the head of the jet of oil was in a furious blaze, and falling like water from a fountain over a space 100 feet in &nbsp; diameter, each drop of oil came down a blazing globe of boiling oil, instant y the ground was in a flame, constantly increased and augmented by the falling oil. At once scene of indescribable horror took place. Scores were thrown flat, for a distance of 20 feet, and numbers horribly burnt, rush- ing blazing fro...
