--On Sunday afternoon last, a party of soldiers, temporarily stationed on Mechanicville Turnpike, mischievously tied a piece of cotton cloth to the tail of a dog and set it on fire.
The poor brute, alarmed and in pain, ran into a fodder stock near Henry Breil
's barn, setting that on fire.
The stack was soon in a blaze, and the flames spreading to the barn near by, soon set it on fire, and consumed it, together with its contents of corn, and other provender.
We have not heard the extent of Mr.
B's loss, but understand that it was heavy.
About nine o'clock last Sunday night a fire broke out in West's barber shop, on 15th street, between Main and Cary. The city watchmen being in the neighborhood, soon discovered the light, and by vigorous efforts succeeded in extinguishing the flames before much damage was done.
It is believed to have been the work of an incendiary.
