Drawing at the Earlville Gift Enterprise.—The drawing commenced at Exchange Hall on Tuesday morning last, and goes on night and day. At six o’clock Wednesday evening, 11,765 tickets had been taken from the wheel.—The drawers are—William Price, Delhi; A. Fortner, Waverly; Oscar Sherman, Anamosa; Charles Rundall. A house and lot, worth $1,000, were drawn by a poor widow woman in Earlville, who has five children and does washing for a living. Several other large prizes have been reported but so far as heard from, none have fallen to ticket-holders in this locality.—Edwin Harvey held a ticket which drew a large kerosene oil can, valued at $10, and used principally by merchants.
The drawing will probably be concluded to-morrow.
Three thousand bags of letters, papers and pamphlets, weighing in the aggregate a hundred and fifty tons, pass through the New York Post Office every twenty-four hours. To receive and deliver this immense amount of matter requires the services of five hundred clerks and three hundred carriers.
