Fbatheeston, October 3.

A firo broke out at Faber’s Victoria Hotel last night. The hotel was burnt to the ground. Faber was absent at Greytown, but the reflection was visible there, and he made all haste to return. The fire originated by a heated stove pipe, and had taken firm hold before it was discovered. All the furniture was saved by the active help of willing hands. The Bank of Australasia, adjoining, was completely gutted, but everything was saved from it, including a large safe, which was got out through a hole cut in the wall. Several buildings adjoining also narrowly escaped. Faber’s hotel was insured for £7OO. A meeting has been called for the purpose of forming a fire brigade.
