[By Telegraph.] Nelson, To-day. A fire broke out in Shelbourne street last night, and two houses were destroyed. The house occupied by M'Leary, in which the fire originated, was totally consumed.

The adjoining house was occupied by Mr. Rose, and was only covered by insurance in the Union for Lxoo. A large quantity of the contents were saved. The fire was confined to these buildings.
