AMERICAN NEWS. The Westphalia, arrived at Plymouth, brings details of the great fire ofJChicago on the 17th instant. The locality of the fire and the direction of the high wihd prevailing were nearly the same as two yfeiirs ago but happily, promptitude and efficiency on the part of the firemen reduced the calamity to more mode- rate proportions. The fire originated in a spark lodged in some hay stores by a passing ,tra.in, It swept on- ward before the gale irresistibly for half the day. Large £ vmbers have been rendered homeless. The monster Dttlloon, with Professor King and five others, started for Europe or elsewhere on the 17th inst., but owing to the balloon being overweighted, less then two miles high was attained, and after one hundred miles had been traversed at slow speed the party de- scended. Mr. Bradlaugh, who is derisively described as the future President of the British Republic, had been interviewed by a Herald reporter, but his reve- lations were not remarkable.
