DISTRESSING AFFAIR NEAR ABERFELDY. Early on Saturday morning last, the village of Aber- feldy was thrown into a state of intense excitement by the report that a house at Crofur, about two miles west of Aberfeldy, had been burned down during the night, and two persons, a man and a boy, burned to death, while a woman was so severely injured as not to be expected to live. The circumstances of the case, so far as known, are as follows :—The family consisted of Mr. Donald M'Gregor, crofter; his sister, who kept bouse for him and a boy about sixteen, named Menzies, a nephew of the woman M'Gregor. They had all retired to rest in the evening, and when the fire commenced or how it originated is not known, but about eleven o'clock people on the Appin and Weem side of the river saw the house (which is not visible from Aberfeldy) in flames. The neighbours also noticed it about the same time, and hastening to the scene were able to rescue the woman alive, though dreadfully burned, but the man and boy were quite dead, and the' bodies badly burned, having no doubt been suffocated by the smoke ere the fire reached them. The body of Mr. M'Gregor was found as if he had been tryinsr to reach the door when overpowered. The boy had never got out of bed. Dr. Menzies was speedily in attend- ance, and attended Miss M'Gregor, but little or no hope is entertained of her recovery. The deceased Mr. M'Gregor was a most respectable, quiet man, and the boy was a promising lad. The sad event—the like of which has not occurred for many a day—has cast a deep gloom over the neighbourhood. A later account states that the woman, Margaret M'Gregor, was also reported to be dead. The bodies of the man and boy had the clothes on, but it is supposed that they had intended going dtI early in the morning for loads of peats, and so had not un- dressed.
