A MOST daring and diabolical at- tempt was made on Thursday nig-ht . r. 4 uA v , laai, iu aei niu iu uig piemises OCCUpieu by the Subscriber. A pile of mixed cot ton and cotton seed, lying close under the roof in the upper story of his work shop, was set on fire, but was providen tially discovered between 11 and 12 o' clock and extinguished. The fire must have been placed under the cotton, as it burnt the surface 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 premises must inevitably have been conscmed, as the top of the cotton communicated with the roof. There can be no doubt but that it was the work of some vile in cendiary. The above reward will be paid to any person, who will give such information as will lead to a conviction of the offender or offenders. GEO. Mc WILLIAMS, Coach Maker Tarboro', April 14, 1828. 35 i s Si: ? 4' collection.
