Anderson, of Dinwiddie county, about fourteen or fifteen miles from this city, was destroyed by fire on Wednesday last, and 8,000 pounds of tobacco, together with the tobacco screws, were consumed with it. Some of the Doctors negroes had been at work in the building, and had left it to get their dinner, without the precaution to shut the door when they went out. While they were absent, a sow and some shoats entered and commenced rooting about in the straw and dry tobacco on the floor, and it is supposed rooted the inflammable material against the stove in which a fire was burning and thus became ignited. The hogs were also burned. The barn was valued at $200.
