ALARMING FIRE AT MERTHYR. About a quarter to seven o clock on Thursday evening, a firo, which at one time promised to assume alarm'n^ proportions, was discovered to have broken out in the cellar of Messrs Lewis and Jones'? offices, m Victoria-street, Merthyr. There wa?.n.° one on the premises at the time, and the Origin of the outbreak is at present un- known.. Information of the fire was conveyed to the police-station near at hand, and not a mowent was lost in turning out with the hose, and vigorous efforts were made to prevent the conflagration from extending beyond the cellar, l>ut, notwithstanding, it reached the passage and stairs on the ground floor before it was finally subdued. Mr Lewis is the registrar of the Merthyr County-court, and clerk to the magistrates, and in conjunction with his partner, carries on an extensive private practice. It is obvious, therefore, that had the flames reached the offices, books and documents of a very valu- able character would have been placed in con- siderable jeopardy. At the time of the un- fortunate occurrence, Mr Lewis happened to be absent from home, but Mr Jones was soon on the scene, and rendered signal service in directing operations. The cellar contained coals and other fuel, and some old books, which were without any substantial value.
