Tilly Henry, alias I.illie Slocum, a twenty-one year old damsel of Brooklyn, N. Y., having found her lover faithless, determined to get even with him, and forever to prevent him from playing fast and loose with the affections of any other girl. Accordingly at midnight, she tried her best to set fire to No. 219 Gold street ;n the City of Churches, where she thought her faithless swain was sleeping. He was not there, however. A conflagration was narrowly averted, and the vengeful Tillie or Lillie,after considerable excitement was arrested in a nearby saloon,within whose classic precincts she was endeavoring to drown her sorrows in the flowing bowl.
