"When it raias it pours" applies as well to fire as to tbe other element. Sometimes, and frequently, months pass away without our chronicling a caloric disaster worthy of mention; and then again they follow in as rapid succession as do the billows of the ccean during a Btcrm . This Korni ng we have to report three fires, two of wh.ii; but for the w H directed exei lions of the best 2jo brigsdo on the f5e of God'a green eaith, iT.?uld have resulted in serious disasters to the best property in the city. Especially would this have been thecriie with the firs of Sanday morning, for when the flames were discovered lssulri from tho btore -occupied by. .MeBsrV. Johnston & Nunns, a very sharp gale was blowing, and being ia th3 mfdat.of solid blocks of buildings, every tenement filled with goods that would have burned without the fanning of. a midsummer-day zephyr,' and the loss would have amounted to hundreds of thousands cf dollars. ' FLAME NO. 1 was the burning of Messrs. Johnston & Nunn'a notion store, No. 310 Main street, opposite tne reaoody hotel, fiom the qeirqf which a dense volume of smoko was discovored ieauiotr about three o'clock' Sunday morning. The alarm was immediately given by the do liceman 6n the beat, to whloh the fire brjgada answered by prompt appearance on the scene, and, with characteristic alacrity; tliei erginea were soon pouring a flood of water lqtd the building, effec tually squelching the incipient oonflj rratlon. The fira bovs had preatdiffl. culty in getting into posjtionoecaTJde ot the peculiar locality or the lire and the dense volume of .smoke that threateded tO suffocate thofee who attempted (o'elltcr the building. The stock ci Johnston e Nunns we get from their balance-sheet of January 31vt, amounted to twenty four thousand . seven hundred and ninety-nine dollars and sixty-nine cents, to' which additions had been made sinoe that sheet was made out that would place the amount of stock at per haps over twenty-six thousand dollar 'JLhoEtock consisted of notions, novel ties and fancy gooda in general, of winch none tuv dealers In that line c u!d make. ,& fair estimate, but wa give the figures from the ofhml statement. The insurance 'on stock, amounts to $22 600 as follows; Toraunaon'a agency Queen, $5000; Royal, S5000; CarrluctJO Maeoo's agency, $5000;' Merchants insurance company of Memphis, ?dT00; North British, J. G. Lonsdale aaenr. 2500 When the fire was extinguished eo'that an examination could be made it was uiscoverea ioai a lot ot empty Doxes and uLuvr liiuamojaoie material nau Daen piled along the walls of the cellar the entire length of the building, to which the match had bem applied in two places, and which is undoubtedly the worn or an incendiary. The gentlemen compcsiDg the firm of Johnston & Nunns can give no idea as to who would wish to damage them in that way,' as they believed they are on good terms wiui an creation. This was a good paying business, as their books show all their books and t aners belne saveu ana tne loss or time as well as the well-selected etock of ocd3 which it nas taEeu years tooompile, is a great er loss to them than actual value of goods will repay. The entire stock ia so damaged by fire, water and smoke tnat ayicld ci ten cents on the dollar would hardly be realized from tho most careful sale. Tho prompt arrival of tbo nro brigade anu their indefatigable ef forts toward extinguishing tbe flames prevented what would have been the most disastrous conflagration ever ex- ptrlenced in Memphis, asm thelmme diate vicinity on ths south, the retail dry goods establishment of Mesesa. Taylor, Joy & Co., and on the north the very extensive furniture establish ment of Mitchell, Hoffman .& Co. were three-stcry buildlflgSi every department of each, crammed full from cellar to gar ret with heavy stocks of goods in their resp c.ivd iiaf s. ana 10 wuicu, irom me heavy gala blowing at tbo time, the Harm s would have spread to other parts oi tbe b!ocz ui'tii the best bUiineea por tioa of Memphis would have been at tho fijirrty of lho "dovenring element. The cellar of Taylor, Joy & Co. was Hooded, involving cohsi'leiabl6 loss on the h avy gcods stored therein.

It was near one o'clock baforo lho re corder's court adjourned yesterday. Theie were twenty-tiuee cawa disposed of, eight cf which were fcr violation ot the ordinance against doing business Wilhout license. John Cooper, negro, was arrested for swindling a country darkey out of fif teen doll an at the Charleston depot on Saturday last. He was sent to jail In- default of two thousand dollars bail, and fined fifty dollars for assault ing bis Victim, who followed him until a policeman could be found. John Reynolds, white, was sent to jail Id default of bail for being a pick pocket. Chrhtina Williama'and Rachael Wil liams (her mother), both negroes", were arrested for assaulting "Uncle Alfred," their landlord. The futs originated last Saturday night, when Christina, in com- " from the market to her homo on Gave? street, near Wellington, iu the rain fell 'nto the bayu which flows Waring the sc.euffl .anl,a!t.a ?iSf who it was In the fi.i in i she fell in." These remarks led to the difflcv,uy wh earned the arrest of til a two inc.. tionod above. Rachael was discharged, bu. hlnnmlnc and fracrant Christina W held in default cf paying a city dno t'l tun dollars. Mary olms (colored) was arrested for being accessory to the larceny of five dollers, stolen from Mrs. Stern berger by Eddy Taylor, a negro youth of twelve summer?. Some parties went before Esquire Thompson on Sunday and swore out a warrant against her, and sL'e wis b'ought before the justice,- who took her redognlf ance, with R. R Church as se curity, id the stun of fiva hundred dol larv, for her appflsfanss before Recorder Duff on the fallowing morning. Cup- t.in Weatherford, who was tm night duty,.aCl tanking it wss proper, io leased her on the warrant and Loud mentioned. Chief Athy, however, had L-er re-arrested, and she was brought otit before the Recorder for trial, and, in de fault of two tl ousand dollars bail, sent tojall .tiphralal Bownn alias Armstrong, a white man who EOtno three or t wr years ago wtw sentenced to tlio penitentiary for obtaining money undef wise pie tenses from some negroep, by rcpreSoot iag himself as a great Indian voui!oo doctor, was arraigned for playing his o'd trlflks. He awitdled an old negro named Jones, who lives on the Pidgeon Roost road, out of seventy-four dollars, by representing himself as a doctor who could drive away spirits ami cure peo ple who were -'under a epsll." The story told by the old mau mroevcry amusing, and plainly showed he was a believer. Ephraim lingers in jiil iu default of two thousand dollars bail, and quarters at Nashville were never more promising. STEAMEOATS. MtV.

Fortunately there were no other trams in tbe denot at tbe time of thn accident, and It being Sunday night but few people were around, or the lesa of life must have been much greater.

At thathour llimes were discovered Is suing from the windows of the build ing, and the locality of the fire was found to be in the back office of General Smith, and was earned by tbe sudden explosion a' a non-explosive gasoline lamp which o' gentleman connected with tbo customhouse had placed on the ta ble. The lamp, ho says, exploded with a loud report, and the gasoline spread all over the carpet, setting everything on ure. The patrolmen mow tue siarm, and In a short time the trucks were on the spot, and the boss wfis unrolled and attached. A stream of water wai pitched into tbe burning room from the fire plug on the corner of Center alley, and when the Hook and ladder truck arrived the boys mounted the ladders and carried the nozzle into the room.
