This time the flre was in the business block on the north side ol Cross street, iucludiug the Farmer's store, Sampson's hardware store, Grossmau's drug store, Shier & DaTis' grocery store, Carr's saloon, and Stuart's barber shop. By great exortion the Follett House, the McRobert's House, and the buildings on the opposite side of the street were saved. The losses on buildings and contente are estimated at $40,500; insuranoe, 128,700. On to-niorrow eveniug, January 5, our citizens are to have an entertainment that will be well worth their patronage. Company A have made arrangemeuts with John A. Stevens, the celebrated actor, who, well supportod, will produce for the ürst time in this city the popular play in five acts and seven tableaux, entitled "Unknown." This is undoubtedly one of the finest pieces that is beiug played the present season. It was first proJuced by Mr. Stevens at the Bioadway Theatre, New York, where lts success was beyond all expectation. The boys should be well patronized for giving to our citizeus such a series of first class entertninments, and as this is the last they have arranged for, and we may add the best, we bespeak for them a full house.
