She had dressed for hop at the National, and was leaving tbe parlors at Kirkwood'a, when by some means her dress, which was of a very texture, caught fire. Miss It. acreaiijei and ran, bringing another lady to her ance. Happily fur both, a gentleman, J. N. JONES, of Wisconsin,) whose and judgment the ladies will have reason ever to remember, rushed up, kept off second lady, whose dress was also very bustible, threw Miss R. to the floor, a moment succeeded in beating and tram pling out the flames. Miss Reilly is burm about the chest and one arm, though it hoped not seriously, and Mr. Jones Buffered somewhat in one hand. But for his and judicious intervention both tbe ladies would have beeniujured,perbaps irremediably. irremediably.
