DESTRUCTION OF MOIIEI>>\ MILLS, NEAR MEK- TON, SURREY.—On .Thursday ni^ht, the 22nd ult. between the hours of nine; and ten, the extensive mills, called Moredon Mills, near Merton, Surrey, were totally destroyed by fire, with all their valuable contents. They are the property of Messrs Taddy, Attflelds, and Company, snuff-manufacturers, of the Minories, and are situated on the banks of the river Wandle, and occupy a considerable space of land It appears that the fire commenced in the eastern" mill, and to have been occasioned by !,oitie defect in a drying-stove, which was erected in the lower part of the building. The fire was discovered by some of the workmen. The foreman of the mills, who lodged in a house adjacent (and which was con- sumed), was immediately acquainted with the cala- mity, and the workman made the most strenuous en- deavours to extinguish the flames, without success. The fire was soon observed by the villagers and in- habitants of Moredon, Merlon, Tooting, and other places, who, without delay, repaired to the spot, aud, one and all, exerted themselves in the most it)- defatigable manner. The mil's consisted of two lofty buildings (-one on the east of the river, and the other on the west): they were partly built on the river, and the mills were worked by the stream. Immediately on the intimation of the fire in Merton, the parish engine was drawn to the spot, and was instantly put into operation; but before a drop of water could be thrown on the mills, the whole ot them, and also one of the dwelling houses adjoining, were in flames. At a few minutes before 11 o'clock one of the horse patrol arrived at the Southwark station of the fire establishment, and gave intelli- gence of the conflagration, at the same time statin"- that much alarm existed for the safety of the adjoin- ing property. Syer, the foreman of that district, proceeded with an engine and post horses. The engines from Waterloo Road and Farringdon Street were also sent off, each of them accompanied by a strong muster of firemen. At this period (twelve o'clock) the saving of any portion of the" mills was impossible, the roof of the dwelling-house of Mr Attfield was then on fire, but that building was happily preserved. The mills, with all the ma- chinery and stock, are totally consumed, and nothing is now remaining of them bnt a heap of ruins. rhe whole of the property destroyed is insured to the full extent iu the Globe Fire-office,
