--On Wednesday night, about eleven o'clock, the musical instrument store of Bonner
& Sapper, on Main street, between Seventh and Eighth, was set on fire, and the most of the stock and the interior of the store were destroyed.
It appeared from a subsequent examination of the premises that the fastening of a shutter on the rear porch of the tenement had been removed and four bottles, which had contained spirits of turpentine, were found on the floor inside, showing that the fire was caused by a deliberate act of incendiarism.
The stock, consisting of pianofortes and other musical instruments
and merchandise, was almost completely destroyed.--It was valued at about $14,000, and was insured for $12,000 in the following companies: The Merchants' and Mechanics' and the Maryland Fire Insurance
Company of Baltimore
, and the Phœnix of Hartford, Connecticut
The tenement was also considerably damaged.
it belongs to Mrs. Myers
, and was insured in the Mutual office
of this city.
