(From the Devonport Independent.) SATURDAY, HALF-PAST TEN O'CLOCK, A. M An investigation is now in progress before the authorities, in consequence of a quantity of shavings, chips, pitch, and ends of candle, having been discovered in a large heap by the workmen, on the Ballast, near the kelson of the new ship, St. George. We understand that both in material and quantity, it would have been suf- ficient, when ignited, to have destroyed this beautiful specimen of naval architecture, and in all probability, the ships and buildings adjacent. No clue can yet be got at how these various inflammable articles could have been placed in such a situation.
