      ALBURY.
      (from our own correspondent.)
      Wednesday.

      I have just visited the young man Frederick Knobel, who was so fearfully burned on Friday last, and he is, with the kind attentions of Dr Andrews and Mr and Mrs Smith, getting on well, although he suffers great pain. He feels rather hurt that his name was published as the son of a fisherman. The circumstances as published in the Melbourne and local papers are at variance with the facts, which are these :-- The young man, who is over 18 years of age, is the son of a farmer living at Mungabareena, and was engaged in working at the sawmill of Messrs Frew and Pyke. On the day before the accident he had been engaged in carrying sleepers, and had hurt his arm. The next morning he got up and was engaged in cleaning the horses, and his father, who was also up and had lit the fire and prepared the breakfast, started to go, in consequence of a request made by Mrs Knobel, to inform the lad's employers that he would not be at work that day, as he had injured his arm. He had only just gone out of the house when the accident occurred, and the mother and rest of the family, who were in bed, heard the noise of the injured man falling over the coffee-pot into the fire. The mother immediately ran out, and saw her son in flames running round the room. She immediately threw some water on him and extinguished the flames. She is of opinion that he must have been standing with his back to the fire when the fit overcame him. [3]
