--We copy the following from the Hagerstown (Md.) Herald:
During the late firing of the rebels on dam No. 5, of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal
, they succeeded in setting fire to the barn of Mrs. Jacob Reitzel
, at present in the occupancy of Mr. Samuel Starling
, which was entirely consumed, together with a thousand bushels of corn, a quantity of wheat, hay, and other property, inflicting a heavy loss upon both the owner of the barn and the tenant.
A toll-house in the vicinity was also riddled with shot.
The dam has not been injured, and a trip or two may yet be made before the canal freezes up.
