Attempt to burn

--Some miscreant attempted, yesterday morning, to burn the new dwelling-house of Mr. Haxall, corner of Grace and 6th streets, by kindling a fire in the middle of one of the parlor floors. The nefarious attempt was made just after sunrise, and soon after the watchman employed to look after the building had retired. Owing to the fact, as we learn, that the neighbors discovered the smoke of the burning floor, the tenement was saved from destruction.
