Fire – The barn of Alexander SMITH, of Lycoming Township, was burnt on Thursday the 1st inst., together with a quantity of hay and grain in the bushel.

Fire – On Tuesday night, the 1st inst., was consumed the dwelling house and all the household 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.
