Scalded to death. --On Thursday last, Eliza Shehan, daughter of John Shehan, while dipping " swill " from a vat at Stearns & Co.'s distillery, below Rocketts, lost her balance, and pitching headlong into the hot liquid, was so dreadfully burned that she died of her injuries that night.
The Liverpool ships. In our notice of the ship Virginia Dare, yesterday, it was erroneously stated that Messrs. Ed. Wm. De Voss & Co. were now building a large ship on the shore opposite Rocketts. That ship is building for the Richmond and Liverpool Company, who own the "Virginia Dare." Messrs. De V. & Co., however, have a fine ship in the course of construction in a Baltimore ship-yard. This new vessel they intend for their Richmond line. The Richmond and Liverpool Company, as we have already stated, have determined to build another vessel at once, which will make three superb clipper ships owned by them. These, with Messrs. De Voss & Co.'s line, will make a very respectable show in the matter of the foreign trade of Richmond.
