The Daily Dispatch: may 10, 1861., [Electronic resource], Can the South support a Government? (search)
Grocery Store destroyed by fire. --The alarm of fire at a late hour Wednesday night was caused by the burning of John Kearse's grocery, (a brick tenement,) located near Port Mayo, in Rocketts old field, which was totally consumed, together with its contents, (a new stock of goods.) The inmates barely escaped with their lives, the wife of the proprietor getting severely scorched in her efforts at egress from the burning house. The loss falls quite heavily on Mr. K., who is represented as a worthy and industrious citizen. It is not known how the fire originated, but is believed to have been designedly caused. Damage, (not insured, so far as we could learn,) about $1,500. In the last two days half dozen fires of a destructive character have taken place in this city. All of them could not have been the result of accident; we therefore renew the suggestion that the Home Guard perform patrol duty. It is the best "defense" they are capable of making against a lurking, insidious foe
Ranaway. --A horse left by his owner untied in the street, at Rocketts, took fright and ran away when the Troop passed yesterday.--Two children in the wagon had a narrow escape, but, fortunately, the damage was not serious.
