DAILY PRESS. PORTLAND. Thursday Morning, November 29, 1866. STATE OF M-A-INE BY THE GOVERNOR. A PROCLAMATION FOR A DAY OF Public Thanksgiving ami Praixc. In obedience to that usage having its ori gin in a profound sense of obligation and grat itude to the All Wise Disposer of human events and hallowed by the most cherished as sociations, I do, by the advice of the Execu tive Council, appoint Thursday, the twen ty-ninth day of November next, to be ob served by the citizens of thiB State as a day of Public Thanksgiving and Praise to Him for the blessings we have enjoyed during the year hat is now hastening to its close. The continuance of peace in our country while other nations have been afflicted with war: the exemption of our State from that tearful pestilence which has desolated other lands; tho bountiful harvests which have crowned the labors of the husbandman, fur nishing ample supplies of food for our people, banishing even the apprehension of famine, the cries ol which are heard coming up from the remote portions ol the earth; the great, prosperity attending all the pursuits ol life; tho rapid recovery ot our country from tno wounds of a frightml civil war the continuance of the blessings of education and the freedom of religious worship; and the manifest pur pose ot the people ofr this country under sore disappointment, that manhood of every com plexion and clime shall be recognized within its domain, aud impartial justice assured to all, are pregnant causes for thanks and praise. I therefore invite the citizens of this State to unite dlfcrding to the custom of our fathers with prayer and anthem to commemorate the return of this festal day, remembering from their abundance the poor and distressed in our midst, and to invoke the continuance of Divine avor and the pardon of our trangressions through the grace of our Lord aud Savior. Given at tne Council Chamber at Augusta, this twenty-ninth day of October,in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-Bix, and of the Independence or »j the United States of America the ninety . first. • SAMUEL CONY. ®v His Excellency the Governor: i Ephraim Flint, Secretary of State. A i «... i —— Thanksgiving. fThe pilgrims, the revered fathers ol New England, and the iounders of all those great and noble institutions which we turn to with such pride and londness, were not a people greatly given to mirth and festivity. Indeed, il must be admitted they were a little grim as a general thing.' They cared little for gaieties, a..d holiday merry-makings. Saints’ days they ignored, as being among the devices of popery; and even Merry Christmas, with all its dear and sacred associations, received the cold shoulder from them from the' tear they had lest it too might be tainted in some way with the thing they had such bitter cause to dread. The sole and solitary occasion, throughout the circuit of the year, when they ventured to lay aside the stern severity of their ordinary routine and give themselves up to festivity, was on Thanksgiving day. When they laid aside labor to thank the Almighty tor the abundant blessings with which he had rowned the year, they allowed themselves tor just one day the unreserved enjoyment of His bounties. Perhaps it is because it stood for so much, because into it was poured in one full draught all the concentrated mirth and jollity which might have spread them selves throughout the year, that it has kept its flavor so lre3h and vivid for us to-day.— We celebrate it still, as nearly os possible, with the homely ceremonies which they in augurated. Always with its annual recur rence there seems wafted down to us a faint perfume of that far-off time, and the memory of the pilgrims is as much a part of the Thanksgiving feast as even his lordship, the turkey. What recollections cluster round the day I- - How fraught with mingled joy and sorrow are the associations it awakens. What phantoms out of a dead past, and faces pale and still, mingle with the merry living groups that gather round the board. To all who have known enough ot life to feel the touch of the finger of change, the yearly return of this cherished family festival brings with it a sub dued and (half mournful pleasure, a joy sweet and solemn and tender as the pensive bright ness of those mild autunn days in the midst of which it comes. No harsh or unkind thoughts have place to-day. The wanderers irom the home circle come back to it once more, and hands long severed meet again in gi'eeting, the board groan3 with the weight oi the feast laid upon it, old tends are forgotten, old animosities laid aside, and men’s hearts, filled with thankfulness to God, have no room for tmkindness to each other. As on this particular thanksgiving day we east our eyes back over the year which is wearing to a close, the first thought of all our min is is likely to be that it has been for the world in general and for us in particular, a year of unusual disaster. Iuto it have been crowded a succession of calamities such as it would be hard to find a parallel for in the his tory ot any year. War, and famine, shipwrecks and hurricane, and flood, and tire have all been busy,and almost every quarter of the world is marked with desolation by one or by another of them. But in the midst of all this we have been singularly favored. The proclamation of our excellent Governor well sots forth some of tbe blessings lor which as a nation we have special cause to be tbanklul; and it is not difficult to follow up his enumer ation with a much longer list. For tha*, how ever, we will1 not pause here. Our present purpose is but to touch upon a point or two which we as a city and community cannot atL ford to let pass out of sight. it ever a people were favored with an op portunity ior seeing bow God's goodness brings blessings out of calamity, good out of evil, we are that people. Doubtless to many persons the terrible misfortune which fell up on us in the summer seemed a nearly incura ble disaster. Yet six months have not gone by, and already we begin to count the benefits which are to flow to ns from the very great ness of our misfortune. The beautiful city which we saw vanish away iu smoke and flame is rising again, stronger, fairer, more excellent than before. The various forms of trade and industry which we feared to see languish and die, teem rather to have gather ed a new impetus from their temporary re pression, and in all the circles of business never was there visible a mote intense and vigorous activity than now. The pleasure of circumstances has forced out all that was best and strongest in our btgbiess community, and shown us degrees of euergy, of patience and of steadfast courage such as we had not dreamed of, and such as no misfortune eau crush and no difficulty can daunt. It was worth something to learn what we were real ly capable of in an emergency. Then, too, we have been taught in a way most grateful to our feelings what a wealth of sympathy and ready kindness there is in the world, how promptly the great heart of the publ.c responds to the call of suffering and distress. Not the least among the blessings for which we would thank God to-day should be reck oned some new knowledge of the generous human sympathy that binds ail men together, and in the presence of misfortune “makes the whole world kin.’1 And last, though sure ly not least, shall we have quite learned the lesson which our heavy sorrow, and its mani fold consolations and compensations were meant to teach us if we fail to be reminded by it that God’s ways are not our ways, that all our hopes and plans, prospects and pos sessions are In the hollow of His hand, and that with no more potent weapon than a ehfid’s toy He can bring all to naught in an hour, sweep all our earthly props from be neath our feet ? But we did not set out to preach a Thanks ivlng sermon, and we leave that to those ho will speak from their proper place in the arious pulpits of the land to-day, content ing ourselves with offering to each and all the choicest good wishes of the season. May joy and good-lellowship abound at every board, may the Thanksgiving feast be sweet to the lips of every one, and from the sacred associations and lofty inspirations of this dear and hallowed festival may we gather yet more and more of the pure and heroic spirit of Us pilgrim founders, gather lor our private lives tresli growth in every grace and virtue, and for out public duties a fresh resolve ‘‘that the nation shall, under God, have a new birth of freedom, and that the government of the peo ple, by the people, aud for the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Utter from ChmhUh West. First Snow of the season—Plank road and Rail road communication—The oil collapse—Its producing causes and cure-New use for crude oil—Important discovery—Recent elections— The Fenians. Petrolia, C. W., Nov. 23, 1866. To the Editor of the Press: As I write the suo v—the first of the season —is fast falling, having commenced two days since, and already the ground is covered to the deptli of nearly a foot. But day before yester day the mud—and such mud as is found only litre and in similar places—was of uncertain depth, carriage whee s sinking to the hubs, and the ruts behind them closing up nearly as quickly as holes in the water. From this place to the nearest railroad sta tion, five miles, there has been as bad a road as could be conveniently found this side of the setting sun, but an enterprising man of more courage than discretion,^undertook lately the formidable task of planking nearly the entire distance, expecting to reap his reward in the shape of tolls levied upon the travelling public and the hundreds of heavy teams engaged in the transportation of oil, lumber, engines, mer chandise, etc. But for his efforts—single-hand ed and alone—it would be impossible for a span of horses to draw over three or four barrels of oil at a load, and though by his efforts he has enabled teamsters to haul in the worst of trav elling from seven to ten barrels, yet because he charged a toll equal to one half the cartage of a single barrel, many of the unreasonable and unprincipled fellows not only reftised to pay the paltry charge, but broke down his gates and committed other depredations upon his property. Disgusted with bis enterprise, the proprietor made an arrangement to turn over the road at a large sacrifice to the Town Coun cil, by whom it is now run, and moderate tolls are collected without special annoyance. He evidently consulted wisdom to better purpose iu the transfer than in the original project, for already the rails are laid to the village, the gravel train is fast doing the work ot ballast ing, and by the first of next month the travel ler wishing to visit this important oil region will no longer need insurance upon his vital organs and viscera to protect them against the ‘corduroy,” but will be able to enjoy a com fortable ride in the cars to the plase of his des 1 tination. Hundreds of horses and men now engaged in the transportation business between the present station and this village will find their occupation gone, though many will find enongh to do in conveying oil from tho wells to the depot,—an average of perhaps one mile. Eight months since when I wrote an article for your columns upon the hazards and uncer tainties of oil mining and of the oil business generally, it was my misfortune to wake up a whole platoon of interested parties, not in your city and State only but even in a neighboring oil district of this province, all of whom agreed that I was not only totally ignorant of the sub ject upon which I wrote, but entirely at fault in my estimate of the prospect opening up to those who had invested their money in such speculations. If I remember correctly I ex pressed a willingness to abide the decisions of time, and allow the “logic of events” to settle the points in controversy. That logic has al ready done its work. The present collapse in the oil business affords a more triumphant than pleasant vindication of the predictions I then uttered, and shows that thosewho regard ed my cautionary remarks were wiser than those who blindly rushed into the vortex, and sunk their money in speculations which in very few instances have yielded the slightest return. At the present time the sale of oil lands is as difficult as it would be to get stocks taken in an oil company in your city, and I think I could not use any illustration that would more appreciably set forth to your citizens the dulness of real estate operations in this re gion. If such be the condition of oil lands, it is not difficult to estimate the condition of those who have invested largely in, expecting to make money out of the sale of, village lots. Bothwcll, where “corner lots” were held at fabulous prices, is now confessed to have been “played out” so far as all speculation is con cerned, and this playing out process has served to create a stampede absolutely astonishing to those who expected to reap a rich harvest in fleecing the “flats.” Sojne of the wells at B. are producing satisfactorily, though the gen eral feeling, I think, is decidedly against that and in favor of this locality, as an oil produc ing district. The collapse in the oil business has been produced by the ruinous decline in the price of crude oil. In December last it sold for $9 per barrel, gold, and was quick at that high figure; to-day it is difficult at this place to real ize $1,50 at the tanks, and sales at even $1 are reported! This decline has resulted from tho large amoun t of production and a supposed large excess of supply over all demands to bo made the present season; though I think this excess is greatly exaggerated, and that the daily production is not one-half what it is put down at in the estimates. The striking of new wells, producing from ninety to one hundred barrels daily, being things of almost weekly occurrence, has had the tendency to beget a feeling in the minds of purchasers that, by holding off, they would procure a supply at al most any figure, and the fears of producers that, in consequence of accumulation, they would soon be unable to sell at any price, have contributed to precipitate the very state of things which they most dreaded. But the evil will work its own cure. Scores of small wells have already shut down, while few new ones are being sunk. The oil surplus will soon be exhausted or greatly lesiened, and the new refineries going up at various points will, in a fe w months create an inoreased de mand that will be sure to prevent large accu mulations in future. For the present the oil business may be considered at rest,—as held in abeyance,—but it will awake, and the almost exhaustle.-s supplies of the oleagenous fluid entombed beneath the stratified rocks of this extensive plateau will yet be brought forth, and its exhumation will afford employment for thousands, and return rich profits for wise ly invested funds. An important invention is just now being tested by the Grand Trunk and Great West ern Railway Engineers, which, if successful, will prove of the highest interest to oil pro ducers. It is an attachment to a steam boiler, stationary as well as portable, for using petro leum for fuel, and the inventors claim that a twenty-horse power engine may be operated with one gallon of oil per hour, and that a train of twenty cars may be run forty miles with twelve gallons, worth, at $4 per barrel, ouly forty-eight cents 1 This attachment, which is not expensive, is now being applied to an ocean steamer at Montreal, and will soon be tully tested. Its success is not doubted by practical scientific men. The recent elections in the States have grat ified thousands on tliis side of the boundary, who watch with nervous interest all that is go ing on among your people. They show that there is very little danger of any man playing the tyrant and usurper to the extent of riding rough shod over the liberties of an intelligent people, and of cheating them of the just and legitimate fruits of the great baptism of blood through which they have so recently passed.— Those oi your people who have imagined that all the radicalism of the country was confined to New England have greatly erred, for it is on ly necessary to become moderately acquainted with Western sentiment and Western news papers and political lectures, to satisfy a per son that Massachusetts even is a highly con servative State when measured by some of the great and magnificent commonwealths which make up that portion of the “Great Republic” known as the North-West. Speaking of Massachusetts reminds me of her two newly elected colored members of Legislature, and this indication of the real pro gress of practical equal rights oalls to mind the , taunt of a Copperhead a few days since, who \ suggested that the Democratic members of the House in that State must feel highly elated in [ being permitted to occupy seats on a level with “niggers!" 1 replied that they would probably he prepared to appreciate the honor that Re publican members of Congress would feel in sitting along-side of that distinguished leader ot Democracy and striking example of its de generacy, Hon. John Morrisseyl My Copper head friend being a good-natured, sensible fel low, suggested that it was not well to make in vidious comparisons, and so the conversation | subsided. A few weeks since the Fenian trials in pro gross at Toronto were the all-absorbing topics of conversation and of newspaper remark, but now, when a half dozen or more poor deluded victims have received sentence of death, all in terest seems to have died out, so that one sel dom hears the subject alluded to. The truth is, no sensible person believes the sentence will be executed, and the proportion of the com mon people who desire that it should be is not larger than that small proportion of your peo ple who, at this late day, would take satisfac tion in the blood of Jeff. Davis. The common impression is that the sentence will be com muted to imprisonment in the pentenitiary, and in a short time, if the Fenian humbug subsides, the act of commutation will he followed by a full pardon. It is pleasant to hear Canadians confess that, in view of the lenity and mercy shown by the United States towards conquer ed rebels who did so much to overthrow the government, it would be disgraceful in Canada to stain her hands with the blood of those few whose hostile efforts proved so utterly abortive and were so soon and so easily overcome.
