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.

Whipped. --The following negroes were ordered by the Mayor to be thrashed yesterday for the various offences specified against them: Fountain, belonging to M. B. James, was caught on Thursday night with five grain bags in his possession, supposed to have been stolen. No satisfactory explanation being produced by Fountain to prove his innocence, he was ordered fifteen stripes. The same number of lashes was bestowed on Dick, an old negro belonging to Garret Cariton, for being without a pass and having in his possession a lot of surgical instruments. Dick's attempts to clear himself of the charge involved him deeper in the difficulty, and the Mayor soon disposed of his case. Ella, a little negro girl about 11 years of age, slave of Wellington Goddin, was arraigned on the charge of stealing from Mrs. Elmira Holmes, living on French Garden Hill, a gold chain valued at $50 or $60. She was also ordered a whipping.

taken up and disposed of: Richard L. Saunders was examined and sent on to the Hustings Court for stealing locks from the vaults and enclosures in Hollywood Cemetery. It appeared that Mr. James Ryan, while passing through the cemetery about ten o'clock Sunday morning, saw Saunders breaking off the locks from the private enclosures with a long screw driver, and slipping them into his pockets. After watching him for awhile, and seeing him break off a lock from the railing around Mr. Wellington Goddin's lot Mr. Ryan went off and informed Mr. O'Keeffe, keeper of the cemetery, of the facts, when Mr. O'Keeffe arrested Saunders, and found in his pockets seven locks and the screw-driver with which he had been operating. When arrested Saunders said he was a soldier from Camp Lee, and that he was stealing the locks to sell for bread. In Court, however, he tried to produce the idea that he had bought both the chisel and locks from Mr. Ryan, one of the witnesses against him. He was sent
