master has the right to charge- po-tage on
a newspaper published in the District or
County in which' his otlice is located. The
fact that tihe subcriber resides in uno'her

all persons resi'ding in the District in
which'ihe journal is published are entitled
to the'paper free of postage,. though the

Tie former point is a.part of the law ; the

Oh -Friday night last, a little beforc
twelve, tho cry of tire ran throigh our
town. Upon..proceeding to the scene the
kitch'en In the jail.yald, in near vicinity to
the most thickly settled portion of the
town, was found to'be enveloped in flanes.
Th. te had aiready progrissed so rapidly
and so far that no effert, or very little, Iva.,
made to save the kitchen, and the atten
1ion of. all present was directed and their
elliurts employed in statying the progress
of the liames..- With.- m-uch ditliculty the
jati and a necat-house-near by were savedL

be riirring, and to this providetial cir'
-eoumtstanice alone are we ionebtedl for not
noiv being enlledi tiponi to' chroniele the
des-truction of much. of our town. Soon
after the crowd had gathered upon t lie
spoet7all wvere shocked' and horrified at the
lynrt' ri'tt human beings were in the
buining builditng. Thelu town-guard and
one other, who were first uport the spot,
hi:td distinctly heard the cries of children
and the despairing agonizing screamn of a
wmn.but the laumes had progressed
10-far,-.the house was then. one-live miass
of coals and ai!.etibrt vam useless. When
the tire had burned down the horrible re
part pioved to be too true, and the charred
bodies of a womiaan and three children were
found in the embers.- They were those of
