Singular explosion. --In the school of David Parke, Esq., of Parkersburg, Pa., an ink bottle, pint size, about two-thirds full, was placed for safe-keeping in the oven of a ten plate stove. A few days ago a fire was lighted in the stove, the teacher having forgotten the bottle was there. The consequence was a rousing explosion, so violent as to break the stove in several places, and throw the fire upon the floor, at the same time scattering the ink over the walls and ceiling so profusely as to scarcely leave a square foot that was not more or less spotted. The teacher and scholars escaped unhurt, yet far enough from unscared.
