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.
