GREAT FIRE IN AMERICA. New York papers report a destructive fire, which occurred on the night of the 23rd ult. at Lawrence, Mass., in the storehouse of the Pacific Mills, in Broadway, within 42ft. of the main Pacific Mill, and adjoining it in the rear. The storehouse building is of brick, with a stone basement, three stories high, 300ft. long, &nd 50ft. deep. In the basement were stored madder dyes, cloths in Process of manufacture, and 2)200 bales of cotton* The first floor w&s for a supply office, and here also chemicals used in dyeing were stored. The last two upper floors were used for the sorting of wood and as storage rooms. On these floors there were 200,0001b. of wool ready for sorting, besides nearly 100,0001b. already sorted. The fire had gained considerable headway when discovered, and it was only by the most strenuous exertions on the part of the firemen that the mill itself was saved. The flames rose high in the air, and the smoke from the burning cotton, wool, and chemicals clouded the entire city. The building w&s flooded with water from the automatic extinguishers in the upper story and from 40 lines of hose, but when the tire. men thought they had the fire under control it again burst forth, threatening the Pacific uoper works with destruction. The origin of the fire was in doubt, but from indica. tions it appeared that the disaster originated in the basement of the storehouse from spontaneous combus- tion, and being fanned by the draught through the elevator hatchway which was about eighty feet from the front of the building, attacked evervttuag in its course. The total loss on the building and stock will exceed 1,000,000 dels., which is fully covered by insurance in Boston offices. There were many accidents at the fire.
