The Accidental Explosion of the fulminating powder, on a recent occasion in the house of Mr. Edward P. Finch having resulted in injuries which have since terminated his life, we trust we may not be deemed intrusive in saying that there is a peculiar appropriateness in our citizens remembering, in a substantial way, those who have been orphaned by the calamity, who, as we have previously remarked, are in needy circumstances. Mr. Finch, at the time of the accident which deprived him of life, was exerting his talents for the furtherance of Southern interests, which we hold to be a sufficient recommendation to the kindly consideration of our readers. Contributions in aid of his family, if left with Wellington Goddin, Esq., will receive the proper direction. Remember the widow and the orphan.
