Clipped From Public Ledger
Fiac.On Thursday evening, about 10 o'clock, a fire broke out in the stallo of Mr. Joseph Whisler, situated in Type Alley, be - iween Wood and Vine streets, near Schuylkill, which was eutirely destroyed, together . with nine fine horses, belonging to different individuals.'7' An adjoining stable was partially consumed, and would have been burnt down, but for the great exertions of the Good - Will Hose and Fame Engine Companies. There was no insurance, and the loss will tall neavy upon the owners,ai they were valuable worklnghorses. That the premises were fired by some base ril. lian there can be no doubt, as an attempt was made on Saturday night to destroy fhem by j placing matches under the door of the stables, which fortunately at that time went out without accomplishing the object of the incendiary. This is the second fire in that neighborhood within a week or ten days from the same cause.
