      SAD.--The York Daily says : Yesterday afternoon Mr. David Bentzel, residing about five miles from this borough, on the Bull road went to one of his fields to burn brush, when by some means it is supposed his clothing took fire, and several of his grandchildren going to the field, soon returned to the house with the distressing intelligence, "grandfather is burning." Before assistance could be rendered, he was burned to death. He was aged about sixty years.
