Wheelwright shop destroyed by fire.

Fire Last Night.
Last evening about half past seven o’clock, a fire broke out in wooden building on Seventh Street, between Market and Dock Street, occupied as a Wheelwright Shop by SAM HOOPER, a free negro. The Wheelwright Shop, with an adjoining Blacksmith Shop, and some small outhouses were destroyed. We have no estimate of the amount of loss. The buildings destroyed were, we should think, of very little value. – Daily Journal, 18th.
