A Dangerous Accident.  We learn from Mr. Wm. R. Babb that on Tuesday last, Miss Sallie Babb daughter of Ranse (Ransom) Babb, who lives in Baldwin County, near Morris Mill, substained very serious acidental (s) injuries. She is about eighteen years old, and was engaged burning trash in a field when the skirt of her dress caught fire. Finding she could not extinquish it, she, like most women in like circumstances, ran off. Her sister, Julia, who was a year or two younger, ran after her, and having caught up with her, threw her into a branch and put out the fire, after her clothing had burned up to her waist. Though her injuries are of a fearful character, it is hoped she may recover. Dr. Crowley is her attending physician.

  Something like a sensation came up when Alderman Wing of the charity committee handed in a bill from a city undertaker for $15 for a coffin which had been furnished on the order of the mayor. Alderman Wing knew nothing, he said, about it and desired infomation. Mayor Price then said: "In January there were three sisters by the name of Babb who worked out in the Bibb Mills on Oglethorpe street. All of them died in quick succession, and as it was the dying request of the mother that all should be buried in Milledgeville, a subscription was raised in  the factory and two of the bodies were sent to their former home. When the last one died the neighbors came to me for assistance and after hearing the case I ordered a coffin at $15 and the body was sent to Milledgeville." 
  "But it is buried out here in Rose Hill as a pauper," put in Chairman Wing.
   The announcement of this fact caused considerable surprise. On motion of Alderman Smith the bill was ordered to be paid.

Is that Filled by Miss Anna Babb, Whose Death Caused Some Talk.
  City sexton made an investigation yesterday into the report of the cemetery committee, which caused a few words in city council Tuesday night. The report stated that Miss Anna Babb had died, and Mayor Price ordering a coffin the body was buried as a pauper in Rose Hill, instead of being shipped to Milledgeville. The report occassioned no few remarks yesterday, when the Telegraph was read, and finally resulted in the city sexton making an investigation. He says, "Mayor Price ordered the coffin and I furnished it and delivered the remains in the casket at the Central depot on Januaary 7th in time for the evening train. Two tickets were purchased, one for the corpse and one for the lady who intended to accompany the remains to Milledgeville. The evening train departed and with it the lady, but by some blunder the corpse was left behind, and was not taken until the 8th, when a gentleman, who was furnished a pass, went over with it and attended the funeral. By an accident the name was placed on my register as a pauper, and hence the report. The other sisters were buried here in Macon, but the body of Miss Anna Babb rests in Milledgeville."
