Fire – On Tuesday night, the 1st inst., was consumed the dwelling house and all the house hold property and family clothing of

Patrick CURRAN, of Loyalsock Twp. The under part of the house not being sufficiently closed, the wind had blown some

leaves under the floor to which the fire was communicated from the heart of the hearth. This is not a solitary instance of the

improvidence of suffering combustible materials to be within the power of heated hearths. Mr. CURRAN personally suffered by

the fire in rescuing one of his children from imminent destruction. The more than ordinary distress of this family has strong claims

upon the benevolence of the public. Mr. CURRAN, his wife, and four small children, in this season of the year, are exposed

without house, property, clothing or bed! The voice of pity pleads for aid.
