Fatal Accidents.

--At Rindge, (N. H.,) on Thanksgiving Day, two sons of Mr. A. A. Bradford, aged 11 and 14 years, had permission of their parents to skate round the meadow edge of the pond. The eldest ventured out too far, and broke through the ice. His little brother, being anxious for his safety, rushed to his rescue and succeeded in getting hold of his clothing, but the ice being only half an inch thick, it broke under him. Both were drowned. At Troy, the day before, two sons of Stephen B. Farral, aged respectively 10 and 12 years, went skating on an artificial pond, made by blasting and excavating rocks, some 70 by 30 feet only, but the water some six feet deep. They both broke through the ice, and, no help being near, they were drowned.
