Incendiary fire.

--About half-past 11 o'clock on Thursday night the incendiary torch was applied to the extensive framed building on the corner of Adams and Leigh streets, known as Hooper's coopershop, and owing to the combustible and dry condition of the structure, it was soon levelled to the ground. The eastern end of the building was used as a kitchen by some negroes, who, we understand, lost nearly everything they had. The other portion had not been in use since the death of Mr. J. S. Horner, the owner of the property, about a year since; but there was a valuable collection of timber on hand, which was also destroyed. Loss, between five and six thousand dollars.
