Fire at the State Prison at Thomaston. A fire was discovered about
half past 12 o'clock on Thursday night last, in the wheelwrights shop in
the State Prison, which was entirely consumed with it contents. The
loss is supposed to be $3000. The warden was absent at the time in New
York. Our information was derived from a passenger in the packet General
Knox. Some of the convicts were taken from the cells to aid in extinguishing
the fire. One new coach for the state company and two chaises were burnt.
Fire- We learn of a ship from the office of the Bath Telegraph that the brig
Lapwing, loading at McLellan's wharf in that town, was nearly destroyed by
fire on Thursday morning last. After all the cabin and quarter deck, including
the planking and most of the timbers aft the mainmast and most of the standing
rigging together with several sets of sails were completely destroyed, the
flames were arrested by scuttling the vessel. She was owned by the Messrs.
McLellan's and is understood to be fully insured. The damage is estimated
$3000. The fire is supposed to be the work of an incendiary.
