For yesterday's "local" refering to the
"sinking of the Mollic Moore," we had au
thority which we considered absolutely in
disputable. The facts were detailed to us
in a deliberate, but very positive manner;
and we had no more doubt as to their cor
rectness, than we have at this time, that
they were a little "shaky." Our informant,
Mr. Daniel P armer, claims to be a river pi
lot, and assures us that he was an eye wit'
ness of the disaster; that the steamer
struck a ris k pile which had been left out
iu the current by the caving of the bank,
nnd that she settled down so fast that her
namo was covered by the w ater beforo he
could get within reading distance. Con
tinuing his story he said that a panic was
treated among tho deck bauds, a number of
them jumped into the yawl, and without
oars or paddles drifted down the river; that
the government lxmt rendered prompt as-
sistance in taking off putwengers, ete. The
only addition wo Hindu wns to give the
lxmt n name, Mr. P. being unable to obtain
it. How this recital tallied with the true
facts, our readers have seen already.
Three lewd females, named respectively,
Rosa Done, Ella liibblins and Ellen Power,

Intelligence from Goose Island yester
day, was to the effect that Mr. Henry Hun
Niker. (of whose serious mishap we sxke
yesterday) is no better, and that but faint
hopes are entertained of his recovery.
Henry is a young man of a very vigorous
constitution; but it is feared that his in
testines have lieen cut. In that event, of
course, recovery is quite out of the question.
P. S. At a late hour last evening, we re
ceived information of a slight improve

CHILD IJURXED TO DEATH.

A MO-T CHCLI. AM) ItEritEIIENslBLE
Only yesterday we published a para
graph recounting how four colored children
were burned to death in the room in which
they had been locked, while their parents
were abroad att-nding to religious duties
which they felt they could not neglect. A
striking parallel was furnished yesterday,
aU.ut eleven o'clock, in this city the scene
being on Walnut stre' t, within a stone's
throw tf our sanctum.
The clang of tire hells and the outcries
of women and children soon attracted a
crowd to the scene of the horror, which is
a one story building a few doors a!ovc
Twelfth street. Entering the house, which
had been gutted of such articles of furni
ture as had not been destroyed by the flames,
we saw a colored woman, named Harriet
Fields, and apparantly about f .rty years

room might be kept comlorta b e during
. . " ., ', . , .
her absence, ishortly after 10 o clock, a
gentleman who was passing the hui ding,
? , , . ,
neard the voice of a child giving out the
ll,,st U"nizii8 cries of "mother: mother!" j
but thinking it a case of flog
ging, quite common in the neighborhood,
he passed on, und gave the mat-
ter no further attention. A half
; hour later, the door of the room from
j which the cries proceeded, was bursted
open, and there, lying upon the floor, near
the stove, was the body of the little girl,
j every vestige of her clothing burned to crisp
j cinders, and the lxsly so cooked that great
patches of skin hung pendant from the legs,
j arms and shoulders. The little sufferer
i gave a gasp or two after the first bucket of
I water was cast ujxm it, and then passed out
of its misery. The bedding in the mom
was entirely destroyed, and no doubt gave
out dense volumes of smokeNind flame; but
the doors and windows of the room being
tightly closed, neither the smoke nor the
flame could escape to give notice outsid'; of
the appalling scene that was going on
within, until it was too late to rescue either
the child or the room's contents.
The most reasonable conjecture is that
the child was playing with the fire, and by
some means communicated it to the bed
ding. It was to give notice of this mis
chief, no doubt, that she raised her outcry.
The burning bedding filling the room en
veloped the child not sooner than ten or
fifteen minutes after its outbreak, for had
the child been burning during the interval
between its first outcry and the time of
discovery, its body would have presented
nothing but an unrecognizable mass. As it
was the skin remained intact on the breast
and abdomen the arms, legs und shoulders
of the little creature being burned, as above
stated, quite severely.
Surely, if our colored mothers can be
taught anything by experience, this terrible
lesson should put a stop to the reprehensi
ble and criminal habit of locking children in
rooms with lighted fires, and leaving them
thus for hours together. But it will not stop
the habit; the death of a child, under like
circumstances, on every day of the week,
would not stop it. The habit is like that
of using coal oil for kindling. Everylxidy
thinks it very dangerous for cveryliody else
hut herself. And now, at this moment,' al
though the seared and burned and black
cnee Ixnly of little Milly Fields lies as n ter
rible warning, we venture to say, if any one
would visit the colored homes of the city of
Cairo, ln will find, at this very moment, no
less than fifty children locked in their
homes, und their parents absent.
