GREAT FIRE IN AMERICA.
AUCKLAND, August 7. Yesterday afternoon Mr Broom well, who is at present in Auckland and represents a large number of insurance cilices in San Francisco, received a cablegram reporting a large fire at Spokane Falls, Washington Territory, by which LC ( 000,000 worth of property had been destroyed by fire, Mr Broomwell states that Spokane was a thriving town of some 20,000 inhabitants, with an abundant supply of water. It is evident, however, that the conflagration must at an early stage have got beyond the control of the local brigades, and, aided probably by a gale, swept everything before it.
