Fatal Casualty.

--A heartrending accident occurred on the farm of Col. Jno. W. Holt, in Bedford county, Va., on Sunday night. A house occupied by some of Col. H.'s servants was consumed by fire, and two children, who were in it, burned to death. The mother of the children has locked the door and left the house, leaving a large fire burning. The children were put to bed by the mother before she left, and their bones being found near the door, goes very far to prove that they would have saved themselves had the door been unlocked.
