THE  FIRE  YESTERDAY.
-----
           At three o'clock yesterday afternoon a dense volume of smoke was seen over i the First Ward, and a moment later the fire bell gave the alarm.  Two horses from  M. T. Sorden's  livery stable were attached to the engine and it started for the fire.  On turning a corner the engine was turned too far and cramped and some delay was experienced.  In the meantime a large number of persons had gone on the run and found that the fire proceeded from a wareroom built by  Pleas Griffey  and adjoining his residence on West Hendricks street.  The warerooms contained a number of stoves and castings, which were damaged to the amount of about $50.  The wareroom was entirely consumed, the loss on which amounts to $200.  His residence also caught fire and was badly burned.  Just after the house caught fire the engine arrived and soon had the fire in the house extinguished.  The loss on the house is about $1,500; on furniture, $50.  The house is insured for $1,200 in the Franklin-Fire Insurance Company, of Philadelphia, G. W. F. Kirk, of this city, agent.  How the fire caught is not known, But Mr. Griffey says that the statement by the correspondent of the Indianapolis Journal, to the effect that the fire caught from a bucket of ashes set in the woodhouse, is untrue.
