Disastrous Occurrences.

On Monday night last, between nine and ten o'clock, a fire took place on the premises of Mr. Huxley, of Tilstock, near Whitchurch, the out-buildings were observed to be on fire in three places, and the whole of them were consumed. The dwelling-house took fire, but providentially its spread was prevented. We are sorry to add that six or more cows perished in the flames. There cannot be a doubt but it was the work of incendiaries.—Salopian Journal
