The Houston fire.? in regard to the late Firo in that City the Houston times says it ? in regard to the origin these fires there can Berio two opinions. It waa evidently the work incendiaries. Lockhart a Mill bad not been in use for More than a month nor jihad there been any fire about the premises in that time. It was entirely isolated from any other building from which file could have beep Acci dentally communicated. Turners Hall was simply Tho Headquarters a society which bad meetings there once a week there being no Chimney stove about the building. It was also isolated not connected with any other House. Quot a few members the society were in the Hall the evening previous but left at an Early hour. The fire could not possibly have a originated from their cigars lamp for if it had it would certainly have broken out before 5 clock next morning. It took its Start under the Steps the front door where some the firemen thought they could detect the debris the combustible matter used to fire the building. Who Are the incendiaries and what can to their object they Are no doubt a set itinerant thieves and their object was plunder. In the confusion 9f a conflagration they expected to drive a brisk business. A a 1 a a Lockhart a Mill was one the meet dangerous Points in the City for a fire had not the been Ayery Calm one the flames would almost certainly have spread to several adjoining blocks in spite the eff Rte the Bremen. As it was we have by a in exp Ewing to hear burglaries attempts at burglaries committed in other parts the City while the attention the people was attracted to the fire. But up to Iasi night no such news had reached us and we presume the efforts the Tai eve a we be toiled. The Galveston Patera have fot some time past been warning us to look out. Lookout there a several. Villainous looking Fellows walking a but the City with no apparent object let them be arrested Ana made to give Good account themselves. If they done to Tell a mighty straight tale lock Chin up and Export them As soon As possible.
