When this evectbeeatue known ia the town and surrounding country, a crowd of citizens of all classes, ages and colors, and s large camber of eoldiera, collected around the building Jn which were ttored imme*nse quantities of commissar; stares, and after a thort deliberation, made a general rush upon the establishment. The parties in charge of the stores at first attempted to resist the mob, but were quickly forced to desist, and seek their own safety in flight. The mob scattered throughout every part of tbe building, each person plundering according to bis or her fancy. In one of the buildings, it appears there was a large quantify of ammunition, gunpowder in kegs, and percussion caps. Tbe eoldiers and country people swarmed around tbe powder, eager to secure it for fowling purposes. While they were thus engaged, by some menus fire communicated to the powder, and in an instant the buildiu£ and its cements, including over fi;iy persons, v>c:c biown to a^btns. This tcrribte tmgedy for a time put A. check upm tbe plundering, which, bowcver, tciou corn* mouctiij tut viiih EOiucPhui Uit<rc oiicum- epection.
