Le Journal de Quebec, of Tuesday last, states that the house of Mr. Pierre Chouinard at Kamouraska, was destroyed by fire on Saturday last occasioned by a child playing with lucifer matches in a room where he was alone with another child of eight months old, who perished in the flames. The mother was absent at church at the time, and the father was also from home. The fire took in the bed, and the girl who endeavored to save the child, was partially injured by the flames.
