Vigilance against fires.

We have long been persuaded that the enemies whom the State has most to fear are within her own borders. The loss of the Glen Cove by fire will not be without advantage if it excites us to future vigilance in defending vessels, bridges, storehouses, &c., with as systematic watchfulness as we would protect a camp. In regard to transport vessels, would it not be well to have them anchored in the stream, instead of directly alongside the dock?
