--A fatal occurrence took place in Lenoir co., N. C., last Saturday night. A man named Wm. Gray, while at a log rolling, at the residence of a neighbor, became intoxicated, and started home, carrying a torch-light.
In some way his clothes became ignited; no person being near at the time, the unfortunate man was burnt in a shocking manner, and died in a few hours.
