Deaths from Fire.

--At a ball recently given in a fashionable mansion in Hyde Park, London, five ladies had their dresses burned in consequence of one of them catching fire as the wearer was performing on the piano. The room being stripped of its furniture to accommodate the dancers, there was nothing at hand to extinguish the flames. One of the ladies died of her injuries, another is expected to die, and the others were badly burned.
