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. Coleman's heirs, and other sus
picious circumstances attending the deed, it
