zrOn Thursday night last Mr. B. K.
Spangler, who—resides on South West
street, Carlisle, Pa., together with his fam
ily, came very near being suffocated by
gas from a coal stove in the following
manner : In one of the rooms on the
first floor is a stove, the heat-pipe of which
conn6Eith - theleetiing - appartments - on
the second floor, with a register. Shortly
before the family had retired for the night
the register was opened to allow sufficient
heat, in the rooms to make them comfor
table. Sometime during the night Mr.
Spangler was awakened • by one of his
children making a queer noise, and found
himself and the remainder of his family
almost smothered. Fortunately Mr. S.
had sufficient strength left him to reach
the front door of the house and call for
help. His brother who resides in the
house adjoining, on hearing his cries im
immediately proceeded to the assistance
of the sufferers, and found the sleeping
apartment entirely impregnated with coal
gas, and the inmates almost suffocated.
A physician was procured who adminis
trated the necessary medical restoratives
and in a short time the sufferers had al
most entirely recovered. This was a
most fortunate escape from death, and
should serve as a warning to others to
see that stoves are properly adjusted be
fore they retire for the night.— herald.
giving morning, says the Ebensburg Her
ald, a young married man, named Jesse
Hoffman, who resides at Loyd's station,
iu White township, left his home before
daylight in company with a man, a com
parative stranger in that section, for the
'purpose of visiting Altoona. He bad a
considerable sum of money about his per
son which he was to pay over to a party
in Altoona. Failing to return to his
home after a reasonable laps of time, a
party was dispatched to Altoona to ascer
tain if he was there. The party to whom
Hoffman was to pay the money was firit
visited, when it was ascertained that he
had not been there.
In the course of a week, the stranger
with whom Hoffman had gone away re
turned, and upon being questioned in re
regard to the whereabouts of Hoffman he
stated that the last he saw of him was in
New York. There are other circumstan
ces connected with this affair which are
highly suspicious of foul play, and which
we think it better to be withheld from
publication for the present. They are
sufficient, however, to demand the imme
diate arrest of this stranger, whose name
we have not ]earned. If he has not been
arrested ere this he• should be at once.
The stranger is a Southerner, and is em
ployed in the capacity of a "striker" in a
blacksmith shop at Loyd's station.
Zir Another of the props on which the
wretched Talderzook leaned has been ta
ken from him. One delusive hope still
remains, and when that vanishes he must
prepare to meet his fate with whatever
fortitude he can command. On Saturday
he was brought into Court at West Ches
ter to hear Judge Butler's decision upon
the motion for a new trial, which was
argued some days since. The motion
was cverruled, and the awful sentence of
death was pronounced. The prisoner's
counsel wade some inquiry as to the prop
er form of .a bill of exceptions, to be taken
to the Supreme Court, but it is doubtful
whether this will be done. An impres
sion prevails at West Chester that Udder
zook will soon make a. full' confession.

Ready from the first moment of danger

PARIS, December 12.—The decision of
President MacMahon in the case of Ba
zaine is announced this morning. The
- sentence — dewagainst the Mar
shal is commuted to twenty years' seclu
sion. He is to bear the effects of degra
dation from rank, but will be spared hu
militating ceremony.
Marshal Bazaine addressed a letter to
his counsel yesterday, thanking them for
their efforts in his behalf, and concluding
as follows :
la not appeal against the sentence,
not wishing to prolong in the eyes - of the
world the spectacle of such a painful
struggle. I request you to take no fur
ther steps. I look no longer to men for
judgment. Strong in •my conscience ,
which reproaches me with nothing, I
confidently await justification, which will
come with the laps of time and the sub
sidence of party passions."
The Conservative press generally ap
_prove °Nile commutation of the sentence.
The Simla says it will create •a painful
surprise in the country.
TM island of Sainte Marguerite, off Ca
nnes, has been selected as the place of con
fmeinent for Marshal Bazaine, and he will
be sent there this week. The Marshal
received the news of the commutation of
his sentence without emotion.

He was sentenced to be hung but the
sentence was commuted to imprisonment
