A fire broke out on Saturday last in a small house on Settler's Hill, a part of which was inhabited by a tinsmith, of the name of BAGSHAW, and a part used by Mr. PAINE for the purposes of a school-room. The wall alone are now standing. The furniture was mostly saved. The roof, where it is supposed the fire ignited, was of thatch: two fire-engines were speedily upon the spot, but no supply of water sufficient to be of any use was to be procured. The wind was raging with great violence, and had the house fortunately not been a detached one, the consequences might have been much more serious. This is the fourth fire that has occurred in the District of Albany within these few weeks, and without, we are sorry to add, in the least diminishing the funds of any Fire Insurance Company.
