--The wooden tenement, corner of 21st and Main streets, known as Rex's Mill, was discovered to be on fire at 5 o'clock yesterday morning.
The alarm, however, spread so quickly that the firemen were enabled by a timely arrival to prevent material damage to the building.
The firing was evidently the performance of an incendiary.
