Burnt to death.

--On Thursday last, a negro infant was burnt to death on the premises of Joseph Allen, Esq., corner of 13th and Broad streets. The woman who had the child in charge left the child lying in its cradle, and was absent from the room a short time. On her return she found, to her horror, that the cradle had caught fire and burnt, with the babe in it.
