forwarded to that influential paper by an occa-

portions of this communication are rather high col-

have been urged to do so by several natives-both

DANGa IN THE USE OF KEiEOSINE OIL.-Another
truly distressing accident has occurred by the too
prevalent pras.ice of uding kerosene oil in making
a fire. Yesterday mornin-;' a son of Mr. Escobol,
who lives at Mullct D1 .y, St. Georges, was directed
to light firo in a ;,:,,e; having collected the ne-
cessary ignitable material andlighti-g them, he,with
a view to hasten the flam", took from a shelf near
at hand a can of kerosone oil, and poured some of it
on the ignited wood; perceiving that the flame had
ran up to the mouth of the can, he threw the can
down, when it exploded, and' he escaped with but
slight injury to his wrists. Not so, however, an-
other child of Mr. Eseobels' who was close to her
brother, was so covered with the burning oil, and
so shockingly burned that in leas than half an hour
death terminated the poor little creatures' suffer-
ings. Mr. Escobel, who was in another room,
hearing the cries oi his child, rushed to its assist-
ance, but failed to be of any service; he also was
considerably burned about the hands and neck.
We cannot chronicle'the above dreadful accident
without again directing the attention of the people
of Bermuda to the necessity of using the greatest
possible care in the use of this very useful but
highly dangerous oil; and it is wonderful that a
greater number of deaths do not result from its
We understand that vinegar is the only liquid
that will extinguish the flame of kerosene.
An inquest was held in St. George's Parish on
the 11th inst., before Denis Tucker, Esq., Coroner,
on view of the body of Nellie Escobel, aged 18
months, who was accidentally burnt to death a few
hours previous by the explosion of a kerosene tin
containing oil, which her elder brother, aged 10
years had used contrary to the mother's instruc-
ions, while igniting come chips. While pouring
the oil on the stove, the infant crept into the room
unknown to the parents. Verdict-Accidental

A meeting of the Paii'hioners; of Sandy's took
