FiRE.On the night of thTI3th, at one o'clock, a fire broke out on the premises of the late Henry Coleman. The house that he occupied was soon consumed and the flames spread to the adjoining yard, destroying four other houses before it was arrested. One of the houses was occupied by Mr. Taylor, the tailor, whose loss was several hundred dollars : another, by two compositors in this office, whose loss was also considerable. The remaining buildings were occupied by natives. Mrs. Jones' premises and the bowling alley ofMr.Thomp son were for some time in much danger, but through the activity of those present, includ ing some officers and seamen from II. B. M.'s ship Talbot, who very xcffously exerted themselves, the firo was prevented from fur ther ravages. One of the buildings was on firo the night previous, and from the rumor of threats having been uttered in conse quence of a dispute in regard to the land among H.
