MONTGOMKHY, Ala., Sept. 8.—Tho post- office building ut Lawrence, Ala., was burno<l Sunday night, supposedly by whita citizens, who were indignant at tho appointment of a colored postmaster. Henry Gomez, a coal black negro, who had taken a prom!- iuent part In politics for several years, a short time ago was appointed postmaster by President Harrison. Tho selection of Gomez was very offensive because thero are only a few negroes in the place, and tho whites,both Republicans and Democrats, objected to having o negro in charge of tho offlco. Threats have boon mado that Gomez should never act as postmaster, and numerous petitions and remonstrances have been sent to the president, but without avail. Tha government owns no building at Lawrence, and different postmasters have, therefore, been allowed $400 yearly as rental. Thoy Try Incendiarism. Gomez bad considerable trouble in renting a building, but on Saturday succeeded in renting an unoccupied store on lower Main street, and Intended to taka possession Monday and move tho'postofllco thero nt once. Sunday night at 10 o'clock tho building was discovered to bo on fire, nnd soon burned to tho ground. It is thought the" bulld!ng_wag tired by some of tho whites who have opposed; Gcmiz. 'Oilier owners are afraid to rent their buildings to tho negro, fearing thoy will bo burned. There is a strong probability that Gomez will bo driven out of town If be persists in trying ta officiate as postmaster. Gomez says ho will not relinquish his office, and thut ho bos assurances from "Washington thut tho poatoQleo will bo closed and citizens compelled to get their mail elsewhere if bo Is not allowed to perform his duties.

WASHINGTON CITY, Sopt. 3.—Tho navy department has arranged for a trial to-morrow of tho deflective armor designed by Chiof Engineer Clark, of tho navy. The tost will take place at tho Aunapajis proving ground. In 1833 congress appropriated money to defray the expenses of making and testing tho armor, but this, was not done. Finally tho bureau of ordnance constructed it. Tho armor consists of a doublo curved turtle-back turret designed for tho dock of n ship to protect a gun. This is four inches thick. It is claimed that it will deflect a shot that would penetrate thirteen inches of iron. Tho gun used will bo one of tho now eight-inch rifles recently turned out from tho ordnance foundry in Washington. It will bo planted 25X1 yards from tho turret and loaded with a charge of powder suillcient to drive tho shot through thirteen inches. Seven shots will beared unless tho target is broken before that point is readied. Tha test will cost nearly $19,000. This includes the cost of tho turret. ' ' A Growl at Milwaukee.
