Fire in Taylorsville.

On yesterday morning about 4 o’clock a fire broke out in Taylorsville, in this county, in an unoccupied frame storehouse.  It was impossible to check the flames until they had demolished three adjacent store-houses, only one containing a stock of goods, that owned by Wade W. Milam, consisting of dry-goods and groceries.  The three other stores were owned respectively by Israel Davis, George Peacock and Mat Smith.  Incendiarism is thought to be the cause, as the rope on the only adjacent well was found to be cut.
