US K. FIRE.-About two o'clock, last Wednesday morning, a fire broke out at the King's Head Inn. It was first discovered by the ostler, who slept in the upper story: he was awoke by the cracking of the timber, and the flames coming into his room. Mr. Neale, the landlord, on being called, used great exertion, and, with the assistance of the inmates, succeeded in subduing the flames but on knocking down a portion of the plaster of the ceiling, discovered that the rafters were burning. He then proceeded to call up some of the inhabitants, and in a short time a number of tradesmen and labourers were on the spot. A quantity of water was taken to the top of the house, and thrown down the chimney, and on the burning wood, which soon extinguished the fire. We are happy to state that no very serious damage occurred. The fire originated in the chimney-stack, where the spot was supposed to have been on fire, and ignited some blocks of wood, which had been burning for several days, as large holes were found in ihe back of the chimney. We understand the furniture is insured, but the house is not.
