Malicious Proceedings - Some malicious persons, on Tuesday night, set fire to, and sent adrift, the new wood scow belonging to the Canadian steamboat Traveller - the result of which was, she burned to the water's edge. Loss not less than $400.

At the same time, two wagons, the property of E.F. & A.G. Smith, (who are also part owners of the Traveller,) were hurled from the banks below Carthage, into the river, and destroyed.

It is to be hoped that wretchs who would be guilty of such rascally conduct, may be speedily detected and punished. - Roch. Democrat
