Detail  This evening, about 10 o'clock, at the house of Mr. Carrington, in Mount-street, Grosvenor-square, as Mrs. Adderley, a lady of the highest respectability, whose husband holds a situation of the first rank in the service of the East India Company, was in the act of catching a favourite squirrel, for the purpose of putting it into its cage, she overset the candle, which immediately communicated to her cloaths. In this situation she ran down stairs, and, throwing herself in the passage, Mrs. C. opened the door, calling out for assistance. The son of Mr. Piddington, the watchhouse-keeper, happened to pass by at the moment, flew to her assistance, and, with much difficulty, succeeded in extinguishing the flames. She was conveyed to bed, burnt in a most dreadful manner. Medical assistance was immediately procured, but she was so much burnt, that, after, languishing till 6 o'clock the next morning, she expired. Mrs. A. was deservedly regretted by all her friends and acquaintance; her amiable manners having placed her high in the respect of all who know her. She was about 25 years of age; has left two children; and was on the point of going to her husband at Trinidad when the melancholy accident happened.
