--A large warehouse on the plantation of John Wright, Esq., of this town in which his crop was housed, was discovered to be on fire about one o'clock on Thursday last, at Waynesboro', about one mile from town. The house contained about £6,000 pounds of seed cotton, between 150 and 200 barrels of corn, 75 bushels of peas, all his farming utensils, and a saddle and bridle. In a few hours all were consumed, except enough seed cotton to make about 12 bales.

The warehouse belonged to the North Carolina Railroad Company. The origin of the fire is not known.--Goldsboro' (N. C) Tribune.
