rge of attempted Incendiarism. --On Saturday night, about 10 o'clock, as the watchmen were passing the store of Overton W. Edwards, No. 5 Wall street, they observed a light in the house, and on going in, found that an attempt had been made to set"spreading itself" about the floor. No person was seen about the establishment, and yesterday morning about 4 o'clock Mr. Edwards was arrested at his residence on the charge of setting fire to the store, and taken to the cage. The store was insured in the New York Insurance Company, of which Mr. Davenport is agent. Edwards hails from Norfolk, where he was a merchant, and in "Confederate times" was connected with the ordnance department in this city, with the rank of captain. If it should b it should be proved that he attempted to set fire to the store, it will be shown that his object was to obtain the amount of the insurance. Edwards is fifty-three years old. He was admitted to bail for his appearance at the Mayor's Court to-day.
