that of "Jacks," as the boys and girls
call them. This is a game played with
five pebbles or blunt-pointed pieces of
metal, aed before the play is finished
tha "Jacks" go through many ovolu
tions—every evolution having a name
which we cannot recall, but the chief
among them being "potatoes in the

quite popular among the juveniles.

IMPORTANT TO LAND OWNERS—ARE
YOUR LAMM PATENTED.—We are in
formed by Milton S. Lytle, Esq., who
has recently examined the records in
the Land Office at Harrisburgh, that
there are In this county nearly twelve
hundred tracts of unpateuted lands,
and that there is due the State,on these
lands, •the sum, of more than fifty
thousand dollars This is caused by
neglect on the part of.the persons who
purchased from the original Proprie•
tarios or Commonwealth, to pay the
balance due on the lands after issuing
of the warrants. On none of these
tracts is there a less amount duo than
fifteen dollars, that being the office
fees alone. On moat of them a great
er sun' is due, the highest noticed for
any tract in thisi county" being about
$2BO. The present holders of these
lands have not a clear title, the Com
monwealth having a lien equal to the
principal and interestunpaid. A strong
force of clerks is now at work in the
Surveyor General's office
stracts of the "lands in this Situation,
showing the names of the persons by
whom the warrants were taken out,
and the township in which each tract
is located, the number of-acres and the
arnountsiclue. As soon as these are com
pleted measures will betaken to col
lect these sums. It would be well for
_land owner to - make inquiry
whether his lands aro patented, and if
not, he should take immediate steps to
obtain a clear title. understand
that our informant has git;eb some at
tention to this mattef and that he is
ready to obtain and give further infor
mation to those Who may desire it.
All the data ho requires is tho name of
the person to whom the warrant was
issued, its date and the township in
which the lands lie. Land owners de
siring to be more definitely informed,
should address Milton S. Lytle, Esq.,
at this place, or consult him at the law
office of Stewart & Lytle.—Journal &
About six - weeks ago we published
an account furnished us by a corres
pondent, in which four children of Elias
and Mary Fraker, of Burnt Cabins,
died between the 26th day of Septem
ber and the lst of November, 1867;
but now we arc furnished by the same
correspondent with a sadder picture of
death's inroads, in the same locality,
and by the same disease—diptheria.
The follo - wing deaths occurred in the
family of Amos and Eliza Potts, of
'Burnt Cabins. this county:
On Dec. 27th, WILLIAM, aged 0
On the 28th, ANNA, aged 3 years.
On the 20th, ELIZABETH, aged 9 years.
On the 80th, SAMUEL, ae:ed 12 years.
On Jan. let., Er.r.srA. aged
Five children in one family dying in
about as many days is truly a sad ca
lamity. Those parents who have lost
but one child, and who know the pangs
of distress and sorrow which followed
their own bereavement, can but par
tially imagine the sorrowing of the
Stricken family at Burnt Cabins, in
which a new day only appeared to
witness the death of another child.
➢fay the bereft parents have Grace
sufficient to sustain them in their sore
Assault on a Bay.
On New Year's ore a party of a
dozen boys, dressed in ~ fantastic cos
tumes, and playing a Variety of fan
tastic instruments, called at the resi
dence of Mr. John Lower, of this
place, and after playing a few tunes,
went into the house to get their treat.
Their unsightly costumes frightened a
little girl in the house, when Mr. Low
er's son told the boys they had better
leave the premises. They hesitated,
and young Lower undertook to force
them out, and got them as far as the
gate, when one of the boys struck him
about the head and face with a board,
which he had been using us a, banjo,
indicting some ugly bruises, besides
knocking out two of his teeth. A
warrant has been issued for the arrest
of the party.
Pursuant-to adjournment, the Hun
ingdon county Temperance Union will
hold a public meeting in the Court
House, Huntingdon,TueSday evening,
January 14th,1868 The managers in
the different townships and boroughs
in the county are urgently requested
to be present and also see that there
are eight or ton delegates here from
their refTeztive townships and bor
oughs. There is important business
to attend to after the public meeting
is over and a full turn out of the Uni•
on is desired.

The National Railroad Convention
of November 12, 1867, which met ut
the Court House, in Huntingdon, ap
pointed a Committee to attend to the
preparatory affairs necessary to ad
vance the object in view, who in fur
therance thereof, beg leave to say that
the advantages to accrue from the
proposed work are such as to make
the early construction thereof a vital
importance to the comfort and pros.
perity of the citizens along the propo
sed route, and deserving of National
aid. The Eastern Divison (46 miles
in length,) following the Conocoche-.
ague and Aughwick Valleys, requiring
neither tunnelling or heavy grades
would shorten the distance by rail
from the National Capitol to Pittsburg,
and tho Western States, upwards of
eighty miles; open a good and con
venient market for the products of
Franklin, Fulton, and other interior
counties of Pennsylvania; render pro
ductive the East Broad Top Coal fields;
give access to valuable iron ores along
this route; and employment for nu
merous water powers now running
waste. And with a second link in the
proposed chain of railways (thirty
miles in length,) would shorten the
distance from the lakes to Washington
City, one hundred and fifty miles, and
throw thereon (for all future time) a
largo amount of products required to
be exchanged between the South and
North: such as coffee, tobacco, rice,
turpentine, sugar, molasses, spices, fish
oysters, fruits and early vegetables of
the Southern Atlantic Sea Board
States, - and the West Indies; and the
wheat, flour, corn, bacon, butter,cheese,
cattle, horses, hogs, sheep, hops, hemp,
iron ores, coal and pe
troleum of the North.* From the falls
of the Potomac to the falls of Niagara,
one continuous avalanche of available
water powers from lake and mountain,
amidst coal, lumber and oil, wherewith
to smolt the iron and copper ores of
the Lake regions; grind the wheat and
corn of the North-west; and transmute
into beautiful wares the crude products
of all those regions.
A great National and Commercial
Metropolis on the Sea Board ; a score
of en treports on the Lakes ! two thou
sand miles of Lake navigation ! thous
sands of miles of Ocean commerce !
twenty thousand miles of railroad, (a
dozen trunk line railways from East
to West,) each part and parcel of this
National highway throwing .thereon
their accumulated tonnage,an building
up one continuous workshop and ware
house from Ocean to our Inland Seas,
waere converge all that is necessary
to make vend; and distribute most
readily and cheaply tho wares and pro
ducts of North, South, East and West.
Prepare bill and endeavor to obtain
an Act of the Legislature of Penn
sylvania, incorporatin g a Company to
build the proposed work ; epwAro con
cert of action amongst parties interes
ted therein by calling public meetings
to adopt means in aid of the proposed
work; ririso money for parliamentary
expenditures, and publishing proceed
ings in noWspapers printed at Wash
ington and elstw bare ; memorialize the
City Council; ; s Washington, Alexan
dria and Gctitatown, D. C., the Secre
tary of War, Congress, and interestio:
railroad companies, urging the advan
tages of a direct military and postal
railway from the Commercial, political
and military Emporium of the Union
to our Northern frontier and States
west of the Allegbanies, and the duty
of Congress to aid a work that would
add to the wealth of the nation, whilst
building a groat center of industry at
the Capitol of this reunited confedera
cy. All which your committee respect
fully submit fur consideration due.

CARELESS LETTER IVRITERS.-Ac
cording to the Post Master General's
report, not less than a million letters
wore mailed last year, without signa
tures, and misdirected,or so badly three
ted that the address was totally unin
telligible. These were destroyed.
More than a million and a half oth
ers-1,611,686--were restored to their
writers by the care of the dead-letter
office. Thus it seems that at least two
and a half million of mistakes were
made, in an operation which one would
think likely to enlist the sufficient care
of the writer, the addressing of a let
ter. These letters contained nearly
$150,000 in money, bills of exchange,
deeds, chocks, &c., to the value of over
$5,000,000, and over 40,000 contained
photographs, jewelry, &e.
