HARPER'S WEEKLY.

[JANUARY 7, 1865.

16

" IS ALL DEM YANKEES DAT'S PASSING ?"

One of the most amusing as well as most striking features of SHERMAN'S march through Georgia was the utter amazement of the people, black and white, of the hitherto unvisited regions through which the army passed, at the immense numbers of the "Yankees." Our Artist sends us a portrait from life of one of the " colored population," who watched, hour after hour, the endless column of Blue-Coats cheerily filing by the plantation, from which, probably, she was never ten miles in her life, and finally broke out: "Is all dem Yankees dat's passing?" Another exclaimed, to a daughter of her master, "Law! Miss HATTIE, jess look dar in de road: dem Yankees like so many blackbirds!"

New York, December, 1864. The Piano Fortes, Grand, Square, and Upright, manufactured by Messrs. Steinway & Sons, have established for themselves so world-wide a reputation that it is hardly possible for us to add anything to their just fame. Having thoroughly tested and tried these instruments personally for years, both iii public and private, it becomes our pleasant duty to express our candid opinion regarding their unquestioned superiority over any other piano known to us.

Among the chief points of their uniform excellence are : Greatest possible depth, richness, and volume of tone, combined with a rare brilliancy, clearness, and perfect evenness throughout the entire scale, and above all a surprising duration of sound, the pure and sympathetic quality of which never changes under the most delicate or powerful touch. This peculiarity is found exclusively in the Steinway Piano, and together with the matchless precision, elasticity, and promptness of action always characterizing these instruments, as well as their unequaled durability under the severest trials, is truly surprising, and claims at once the admiration of every artist. We, therefore, consider the "Steinway" Pianos in all respects by far the best instruments made in this country or Europe, use them solely and exclusively ourselves, in public or private, and recommend them invariably to our friends and the public.

We have at different times expressed our opinion regarding the pianos of various makers, but freely and unhesitatingly pronounce Messrs. Steinway & Sons Pianos, both grand and square, incomparably superior to them all. S. B. MILLS,   F. L. RITTER,   ALF'D H. PEASE,

OIL TERRITORY

67 Tracts, 7000 Acres,

IN THE STATES OF
VIRGINIA AND OHIO.

THE VIRGINIA AND OHIO PETROLEUM MINING COMPANY was incorporated for mining and operating Petroleum Oil Lands, and for this purpose have secured some SIXTY-SEVEN tracts of valuable Oil Territory, comprising in all over SEVEN THOUSAND ACRES, situated on the various creeks and runs in Ohio and Virginia, flowing into the Ohio liver within a radius of about thirty miles from Marietta, Ohio, and situated in the heart of the Oil Region, in the midst of a great number of producing wells.

The Petroleum from this section being about 40° Beaume gravity, and very free from sediment, is much sought after by refiners, and readily commands nearly two cents per gallon more than that from Oil Creek.

The Company holds Fifty Thousand Shares of its capital stock, to be disposed of, as required, to raise sufficient means to develop its lands. The remainder of these shares, if not wanted for this purpose, au be divided among its stockholders pro rata.

For the purpose of raising sufficient means to further develop their oil territory, they now offer a limited number of shares of their WORKING CAPITAL Stock, full paid, at the low price of FIVE DOLLARS each (par value $10).

Applications for shares to be addressed to either of the officers of the Company, at their office, 51 BROAD ST., NEW YORK, where a prospectus and further information can be obtained.
