FATAL ACCIDENT--Mrs. Mary A. Hinds the venerable mother of Mr. J. W. Hinds, while ascending a stairway at the residence of the latter, on West street, Sunday evening, slipped and fell to the bottom of the steps, receiving injuries which caused her death.

Dr. Conway was summoned to her relief, but she was beyond the reach of medical aid before his arrival. There were no bruises visible upon her person, and her expiration so suddenly leads to the belief that she suffered a contusion of the spine.

Mrs. H. was a native of Connecticut. She came to Indiana in 1819, since which time she has be a resident of this city. She was in her 89th year, and for 61 years was a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church.
