Tne flre HeffAn in a shingle mill aai factory near the rivor front, just outside he northe-n b )'i'i lary of tho city limits. A strong wind from tho north- east was biomnjj ani tho flames soon conamunicated to the cotton warehouses which lino the river fvo it from Beaure- pird street, the nu-'thfrn boundary, southward six blocks and from the rivor fro'it westward to Magnolia street, three blocks. Fro n tbo shingle mill to Good- man's wan-house on tho block bounded b7 Front, Boaurejard, Water and Lips- cumb stieot-i, the is about 601 and almost as .soon as smoke seen from tha roof the cot- tor1 up In OjO'lm-ii's uurehouso there were stored a bo it 000 bales of cot- ton, and the sparks from this cotton communicated tho flames to warehouse on Lispcorab and Water, and running baok on Magnolia street to tue Mobile oil mills, which are novt south on the east side of Front street and to the wharf front o? the Mobile Bir- mingham Railroad Company, which fronted on the water from L5aauregard to Lipscomb street. The inflammable character of the ma- terial which the flames and the gale of wind was blowing caused the fire to spread-with rapid- ity and before two o'clock it looked as if the fire would spread from' end to end of the water front of the city. Before tho Mobile that company's water slip, were two Jewel and Mary tho steamer Uelen S., the iug Margaret Leinhard and the Gorerntnentsnasrboat Warron. Half a dozen men got boats out of the slip into the stream, saving all hot the Jewel and thg Mary Elizabeth, which burned rapidly to the water's edge. The flames swept on down the wharf front of the city. At the next slip fronting near tho foot of Adams street, wero tho steamer Ruth, two naphtha launches and four or five cotton' and timber tugs, all of which were got into midstream with only slight Injury, except the steamer Ruta and naphtha launch General Fowler, which were destroyed in a few moments. The water front wharves were entirely burned from Beauregard street, on tho north, to St Louis street, the flames leaping'the wharf slips as hurdle racers leap a stono wall. A large amount of cotton which was closely packed in the warehouses and presses made tho flra an intensely bot one, and the high wind caused it to spread so rapidly that it was impossible for the flre department to do more than stand idly by and see it burn. The ffre burned rapidly among tho cotton warehouses and presses. When Goodman's warehouse was in a blaze smoko was soon issuing from Brown's cotton warehouse roof, a square away on the northeast corner of Water street, and at the same moment the Gulf City oil mill, with a warehouse which stored full of cotton oil, oil cake and meal blazed out and the firemen and tbo largo crowd of spectators which had gathered in the had to flee from tne ad-vanoing flames Almost immedi- ately the tlamcs spread from building to ['U Ming until Gage A Lyon's artiScial ice factory and tho Merchants' press Acre drstroyod. Tho property destroyed is bales of cotton: throe steamers: one naphtha launch; eleven froitjhtcars grain laden, belonging to tho Mobile Ohio Rail- road Company; fiie empty bos cars of the Mobile A Birmingham road; two wood and coal yards; three cotton com- preasers; eight cotton warehouses; tho Gulf City oil mill and warehouse: tho Mobile Phosphate and Chemical the Gage Lyon ice factory and numer- ous small business houses in tho locality. So far thoro has been no casualty re- ported. The wind dteJ. away about, 5ve P- m. and tbo fire department got tho fire under control. It is estimated the total loss will exceed 5650.000.
