Severely burnt. --On Friday night last, a little girl, named Blanche Rogers, daughter Mrs. Susan Jeffries, was burnt in a severe manner about her breast and throat. She was standing in front of the fire, when her clothes caught in a light blaze, and but for a flannel dress which she wore next to her person there is very little doubt she would have burnt to death. Up to last night her sufferings were very distressing, though it is believed she will recover.
