Journal.] One ot the most horrible calamities, such as death by fire, occurred in this place on Thursday last, by which the wife of william J. Huntington and a hired girl named Wilson, aged about nineteen years, were burned to such an extent as to'cause the death of the latter within the next twenty-four hours, and the life of Mrs. Huntington, at the present time of writing, (Saturday noon.) to bo despaired of. The particulars arc as follows: At about eleven o’clock lo the afternoon, Miss Wilson, tbc hired girl, started a fire in the kitchen stove for the purpose, as we understand, of preparing dinner. In the place of kindlings, to make haste In this work, she took a can ot kerosene oil and poured part of its contents on the wood, when suddenly a sheet of dames darted from the stove and, following np the stream of liquid from the can, set it on drc. Then fol lowed the bursting of the can, the burning liquid scattering over tbc room and over the clothing of the unfortunate girl. Her screams brought Mrs. Huntington in haste from the next room, who, seeing her in dames, grasped a pail of water for the pur pose of aiding her, but in passing by the stove she fell into a pool of horning fluid, which speedily enveloped her clothing In flames. Both then rushed out doors, frantic with pain, endeavoring to pat oat the flames by rolling upon the ground. [Mr. Huntington and another man near by rushed speedily to their rescue, in vain trying to tear the burn ing clothing from their bodies, and both horning their hands severely in the attempt. All unavailing! all vestiges of clothing ex cept the covering to the feet and small particles of cloth around the neck and shoulders of Mrs. U. were devoured by tho flames, and both [of the bodies horned to a blackened crisp. As we stated above. Miss Wilson died in great agony from the barns, about ten o’clock Friday morning. Mr*. Hunting ton seems to have been in leas pain, bnt most probably from the fact of sensi bility being more or less destroyed in the parts burned. At the time of the calamity, Mrs. Huntington WMcncimfr which rendered her situation the more criical, all hopes of her rfecoverv being given up by physi cians and friends, Mrs. Hnnlrcgton is the daughter of Mr. J. DeCouwey, of this place, aud in case of her death, of which there is no doubt, will leave a husband and three children, parents, brothers and sisters, and many other warm friends and relatives to moarn her sad fate. fHasonlc Notices, AT4ii5M® —There will be a Regular ■V A Meeting of the Chicago ConaclL Xo. 1.
