Mr. George's foundry is situ ated at the foot of Sixth avenue, and Roger is one of those at work there. Yesterday he was standing by a barrel of asphaltum. which contained some benzine to thin it. The bung was out. and Huger struck a match, holding it not far from the bung hole. In an instant tho gas from the benzine caught tire and a loud explosion followed. One head of the barrel smashed a big oil can and the other struck a wall with great force. A great stream of fire surrounded the boy, and wtth a cry of pain he rushed for the door. Just as ho reached it his father came running in. Seeing his son's clothing on tiro he paid no attention to the other blaze until he had extinguished the clothing, and had the boy enriied home. In the meantime, all the part of the room b**<*med to be burning, and. right in the edge of the b a/e. was another ; arrel of asphaltum and benzine. Mr. Georsre keeps a fire appa ratus for just such emergencies, and in a few miuutoa had the tire totally extinguished, with sltght damages. Huger was suffering from his burns, and Dr. Hammond quickly came to attend to him. He found that he was not seriously hurt, but his shoulders, neck and breast were painfully scorched. At last reports he was resting well, and he will be out in a few days. Albany Herald The readers of the Herald will remember the drowning of the 10 year-old colored boy, Josie Sneed, in Flint river last Saturday morning and the subsequent reports about the recovery of bodies at Newton and at the Wilson place. At first It was thought that the body taken from the river at Newton Monday afternoon was that of Sneed, but it now transpires that the body was that of a white toy. and that the burial took place without identification of the remains. Then came the report about the finding of another body at the Wilson place on Flint river. Tom Jackson, colored, was fishing in the river in a boat when he ran across tho body of a young negro boy being devoured by an ulligator. Jackson took charge of the decomposed and lacerated remains and landed them ashore, where he heai>ed brushes upon them. He then left to send word to Joe Sneed of this city, father of the drowned boy. Sneed left at once for the Wil son place, arriving there at 9:30 o'clock Wednesday night. Tn company with Jack son. Sneed went to the spot where the body of his boy had been tied with a strong string by Jackson. But the body was gone That is. ull except a part of the left arm to which the string was tied, was gone. Asa natural consequence. It is supposed that the same al ligator from which Jackson took the body, followed Jackson and devoured the body after It was left on the bank of the river. FLOHIDA. L. W.

Kirby Mnith on Lake Lucerne, doing considerable damage to the weather Hoarding, tearing off tbe plasterii gof the bath room and leaving evidencea ot having entered the house at two different points. The bolt apparently divided into two separate currents over the house: one striking a v himney on the north side and traversing down into the sitting room on the tirst floor, where it drove the screen from the flre place and threw it half way across the room. In this room was seated Mrs. Smith and her mother, Mrs. M. C. Kerdell. both of whom escaped injury: neither of them ieeling even a shov k from the electric huid. ihe lightning, in its course down the chimney, scattered and set Are to a pile of looae paper in the tire place, which immediately burst into a blaze. But for the prompt extinguish ing of this blaze by Mrs. Smith the lire would have doubtlessly communii ated to the furni ture of the room and been hard to manage. The other fork of the lightning bolt entered the roof on the west side of the house, burn ing a hole about the size of a walnut in the shingles and then plowing up the weatberboarding and entering the bath room. From the ceiling and side walls of this room it tore the plas tering. At this point it went down the walls of the house into the kitchen, where it did no other damage than to knock u small piece of plastering out of a i orner of tbe room. Mi s. Kerdell. who. as before stated, was ia the sit ting room in conversation with Mrs. had ihe chair in which she was sitting, hit by the fire screen as it was hurled across the room by the force of the lightning. The two ladies mentioned were the only occupants of the house at the time of the occurrence. GOOD DEMAND FOR ROSIN. Large Sales Made at a Decline in Low Grades.

Receipts this week at all interior towns 4.318 bales. Receipts from plantations 3,101 bales. Crop in sight 7,345,014 bales. New York, July 14.—The Sun s cotton re port says: "There was a decline in Liver pool, the crop news was favorable, trade and speculation were slnggisb. there was some disposition to liquidate August, and prices declined. On the decline, however, there was enough buying for short account to cause a slight rally. Rain is needed in some sections west of the Mississippi. The Mississippi state report, dated July 9 says. All things considt ered, the week has been favorable throughout the state.' Crop advices for the week geu erally have been of a very favorable char acter. Kam has fallen in almost all localities during the week, and the crop has. as a rule, been benefited thereby. Reports from lexas are, as a rule, quite satisfactory, and in some secUons moisture is claimed to be needed. New York. July 14.—Klordon A Cos., in their review of cotton, say: "Notwithstanding the extraordinary and prolonged depression, the situation is not without e ements of hope for the friends of cotton. The coilapse of dhe great strike: the near approach oi the time when uncertainty a,.out the tariff must end; the conceded fact that the absurd and ruin ous Hatch bill can not become s law; the gen eral economy which the hard times have enforced throughout the country and the fact that all mercantile ventures have been brought nearer to a strictly hardpaa basis than at any time within the memory pf this generation: all these things presage an early and decided turn in the business title When ever the turn shall come, the recovery is likely to assume the proportions of a Doom, aud cotton is sure to be among the tirst of the great staples of commerce to feel the favorable impulse. This, at least, is what the bulls think and say. "The Dears insist that the present prospect of the coming crop is likely to be the largest crop ever made, aud this outweighs every oth er consideration. They say that the owners of the enormous stocks of cotton in Liverpool, Havre and Hremen. have been holding on in the hope that some disaster might happen to the crop; that with every week that passes now, this hope Is growing fainter, and that we may at any moment be confronted with heavy selling in the foreign markets as well us with the liquidation of August contracts here, it is indeed difficult to discern, at the moment any substantial encouragement to buy cotton for a rise. A strong bull specu lation seems to be absolutely neoessa.-y to check tbe decline. It is quite possible that we may have such a speculation later in the season, but there are no signs of it as yet. A further decline ;n Liverpool and glowing crop accounts from all parts of the south combined to day to depress values to the lowest point yet touched.

July 14. The fact railroad affairs at the west are gradually settling down to a normal condition is exerting a good effect on the Stock Exchange, and a further improvement in prices was recorded this morning. The rise to day established the contention of the bulls that there are no stocks pressing on the market at anything like current figures, the )dds of the shorts elicited few offerings of the leading issues. This was demonstrated in the cases of Louis ville and Nashville, Lackawanna and Pullman. when efforts were made by the shorts .to cover outstand ing contracts. London tried to CQver Louis ville and Nashyille with the result of sending the price up Later, on moderate buying, a rise to 464 was recorded. A latent short interest in Lackawanna also started iu to get back stock put out early in the week at lower figures, and the stock jumped from 160'• to 164. lhe advauce brought out less than 1,000 full shares. Pullman bounded up from 1584 to 161 and left off at 180. In the general list the improvement in railway issues was less marked' and ranged from G't&N per cent. Operators do not con sider the American Railway Union as a fac tor in the market any longer and are now waiting to find out the amount of damage sus tained by the railways through the tie up and its effect on future dividend payments. Some traders are of the opinion 'hat the roads will now be able to reorganize their pay rolls so as to offset the recent losses in short order. The deliberations of the tariff conference com mittee are being, if anything, more closely watched, the street expecting that the market will receive its next impetus from Washington. Among the industrials Chicago Gas and Sugar were the special cards, the former rising to 77\' on pool buying while the latter sold up to within a fraction of par. The street still in clines to the belief that the refining interest will get the protective duty called for In the Senate. Distillers recovered to 244 on pur chases by brokers gencrall acting for in siders. Lead, Tobacco and Cordage w’ere steady. In the inactive shares, Minneapolis and St. Louis broke from 7to 4, and the preferred from 25 to 20 on the reported hitch on the negotiation for a settle ment with the Rock Island. The company owes the latter $4,000,010 and unless a settle ment is made the Rock island can foreclose. The time set by the courts for payment ex pired on June 29 last. Speculation left off steady in tone. Net changes show gains of : 8 to 1 per cent,, outside of Pullman and Lacka wanna. which gained \% to 2% per cent, re spectively. St. Paul lost 4 per cent. The sales of listed stocks aggregated 33,913 shares and of unlisted 20,900 shares. The bond mar ket was strong.
