The gentle man, a Mr. John Gray, ofGeor gia, in a careless moment, suffer ed his cotton seed and corn to be thrown together; and corn being scarce, he threw the cotton seed with the corn into the brewery.

The fire must have been placed under the cotton, as it hurnt the suriace of the floor to the ex tent of about twenty feet in circumfer ence, and also through the floor had it kindled into flames the whole nremfces must inevitably have been consumed, as the top ol the cotton communicated with the roof. There can be no doubt but that it was the work of some vile in cendiary.
