A SAD calamity occurred in West Buffalo
township, Union county, on Friday evening
last. Three little children were burned to
death—the precise origin of the fire being
wholly a matter of conjecture. The parents
were both absent—Mr. Strickler was lumber
ing in the mountains, and Mrs. S. was out of
the house a few moments, attending to do
mestic duties. Returning, she found the inside
of the dwelling in flames, but was unable to
rescue one of all her children, whom she had
left in supposed safety. The oldest child was
three and a half years and the youngest but a
few months old.

The Harrisburg TELEGnAPIL, published by
George Bergner, Esq., will be furnished daily
to mail subscribers at $6 per annum, and in
the same proportion for a shorter period.—
The weekly, printed on a large double sheet,
is published at $2 a year in advance, or ten
copies to one post-office for $l5. The TELE

ceedings and gives the latest news by tele

to learn is in a most prosperous condition.

Tom Cowden's Patent Ballast Weather Strip,
an article that is warranted to keep the rain,
snow, or cold from blowing in under the
doors. Those whose carpets have been dam
aged from the above causes will rejoice to
know that there is a remedy at hand—one
which cannot fail to render satisfaction. One
of these strips has been placed upon the front
door of our office, where P. can be seen. Mr.
Cowden is stopping at Buell's Union House,
where he will remain for a few days. State,
county, town or individual eights will be sold
on very reasonable terms. Oar mechanics
would find it a very profitable investment.
IMPORTANT TO EVERYBODY.--The Board of
Enrolment publishes •an extetsive advertise
ment in this paper, relative to the correction
of the enrolment lists. The Board urges the
appointment of township and n•ard commit
tees, whose duty it shall be to examine the
lists at the office of the Provoit Itarshal, and
have stricken therefrom the names of enroled
man who are either dead, in the military ser
vice, over or under age, or aliens; those who
have removed from the district• or from one
town or township to another; All who have
served two years in the army, and such as
hare manifest evidence of physical usability.
It is the desire of the Board to have the lists
correct before the draft takes place, in order
that no unjust quotas may be imposed upon
any of the sub-districts. Notice is also given
that if the present opportunity to correct the
enrolment is neglected, no attention; vifl in fu
ture be given to wmplaints about excesOz. quotas.
It is therefore to the interests of the people
of all the towns and townships in this Con
gressional district to take immediate action
in the matter, and appoint committees to'at
tend to the correction of the lists. The larger
the enrolment of any sub-district, the larger
will be its quota. Every name stricken from
the roll aids in reducing the quota. h the
citizens neglect to attend to this impotent
matter, they cannot charge the Board of y, n _
ImM:sent with the imposition of excessive
quotas. We trust there will be no dela,'y on
the part of any one, but let all act at once.__
