Both drugs are antibiotics.
Chloramphenicol interferes with or inhibits bacterial protein synthesis resulting in bacterial cell death. See: https://www.drugs.com/ppa/chloramphenicol.html
Oxacillin inhibits mucopeptide synthesis in bacterial cell wall resulting in bacterial cell death. See: https://www.drugs.com/ppa/oxacillin-sodium.html

They both are active against different types of bacteria.
