Badly burned.

--A negro woman, named Betsey, slave to Mr. George Walton, was severely burned yesterday morning, by her clothes accidentally taking fire whilst she was cooking breakfast. As soon as she discovered the flames she became alarmed and ran into the street, where, luckily, she was met by a squad of soldiers, who seized her and tore the burning garments from her person, the skin peeling from her arms and person as they did so. Her recovery is considered doubtful.
