"ire. About 3 o'clock on Saturday morning,
our citizens were aroused by an alarm of lire ;
which had taken place in the dwelling-house of
Charles W. D'Ovlkv, Ksq.on St. Philip-street
When first discovered, one of the lower rooms
was entirely in a blaze, and the flames were rap
idly extcmlir.g themselves lo the rest of the man
sion, which is large, (having four rooms on a
floor,) and entirely of wood but through lhc spir
ited exertions of those who firt reached the spot,
the fire was providentially soon got under, alter
destroying the interior ot the room in wnicn it
commenced, and injuring thc adjoining ones.
The first intimation which Mr. D'Oylcy, or his
family, had of their danger, was from without ;
when thev effected their escape, but not without
some diflkulty, through a thick and almost su (lo
cating smoke, down the stair-way. Thc premi
ses, we understand, are insured ut the Charleston
Fire and Afarint Insurance Office. We regret to
add, that not a doubt remains of the fire having
been communit?ved by design ; there had been
no fire in that part of the house foe many weeks.;
and there was also the most decided evidence that
an attempt -wasmade.lo set fire Jo another parf of
thc house, at thc same time ; hut which did not
