ANOTHER CHILD BURNT. - About three o'clock on Monday afternoon a little boy, about a year-and-half old, the child of a labourer named Emerson, at Fornham All Saint's, having been left by his mother for a short time, on her turn she found his clothes in flames, and before they could be extinguished, the arms, head, and neck of the poor little victim were literally roasted, and death almost immediately ensued. Mr. Kilner, surgeon, passing through the village just after immediately repaired to the cottage, but life was already extinct.
