FURTHER DESTRUCTION OF PROPERTY
DUKE OF MANCHESTER'S ESTATE.
On Thursday last the remaining house, formerly occupied by Widow M'Dowell, in Baltier, and from which she was evicted, as reported in the Weekly News a fortnight ago, was destroyed by fire. One bay, in which the minister's horse is kept during services in the adjoining school, escaped injury.
The fire was first observed between four and five o'clock in the evening, and when we were there yesterday it was still smouldering.
The whole place is now one mass of ruins. Surely this state of things will be speedily put an end to.
We understand the forms have been complied with, in order to lay the expense upon the county.
May 6, in this town, the wife of Mr. H. Robb, of a son.
