OBSTRUCTION OP AN OLD CHURCH
This morning, about 6 o’clock, Mr. W.
H. McLeod, who occupies a house on
York street, adjoining the old church
•edifice at the corner of York and Bull
streets, discovered a fire in the roof of the
building, and notified the guard. An
was immediately given, and the
-Hire companies proceeded promptly to
the place, but the fire had spread very
rapidly through the dry wood-work of
the building, and it was found impossible
to save it. Tbe fire companies took
posLion in the square in front, on Bull
aad York streets and in the lane in tbe
rear, and poured large volumes of water
on the burning building, and those ad
joining, with a view to saving them. By
the efficiency of the firemen the fire was
confined to the building where it caught,
.’and even that was not entirely consum
ed, The massive pillars in front and a
large portion oT the walls still remain
Hfc McLeod removed his furniture,
r. and suffered some slight damage by
water, and the burning of fences and
• ant-buildings iu the rear. He also lost
some provisions, but his loss was very
small. Although he has been twice
before * burned out he was „ unin
sured. Mrs. Black, who owned the
i building he occupied, and lived the next
< door above, removed her furniture, but
x had only a nominal loss.
The lane in the rear was sufficiently
wide to protect the buildings beyond, un
rllar.the careful management of the fire
t men and companies.
The building destroyed U a very old
* one, and was formerly used as a Baptist
• Church, with a school in the lower pait,
! but some years since was purchased by
* the Savannah Volunteer Guards as an
i armory and drill room. Since the war it
Vbe« sfiso been used a3 a drill room by the
Confederates, and after our occupation of
the city a guard was quartered in it. It
was a fine wooden structure originally,
but had got a little rusty. It was built
xa 1830 by the Unitarians, for Itev. Mr.
JBiseornb, of Boston, but was purchased
?bv the Baptists in 1856, and by them sold
Aothe Savannah Volunteer Guard in
The guard had quite a number of
loaded muskets inside which were not
removed. Nearly all of them, fortu
nately, were stacked, and when they be
came sufficiently heated to explode the
cartridges, the bullets went shooting
upwards, looking like balls of fire, and
occasioning no clanger. But some of the
guns were lying down, and a bullet oc
casionally zipped through the spectators,
or knocked up the dust at their feet,
brightening many but hurting none.
It is not positively known whether
tke fire was accidental or incendiary.

LATER FROM FORT FISHER
NEWS TO SATURDAY UAST,
Last evening tbe steamer ELM. Wells,
Capt. I. R. Getty, from New York, Jan.
30th, arrived here.
She was obliged by rough weather to
put into Cape Fear river, where she re
mained until Saturday morning last.—
She was at anchor near Smitliville, op
posite Fort Caswell, w hile there. Capt
Getty describes Smithvilie as a desolate’
place, suffering from the devastation oc
casioned by both forces.
All was quiet at every point at latest
accounts. Just as the steamer was
leaving a report was current among the
troops that Fort Anderson had been cap
tured and taken, thus leaving Wilming
tou open to our force; but Capt. Gelty,
who is commendably cautious, and does
not wish to give currency to sensational
or exaggerated reports, believes the story
to be merely a camp rumor, based only
on the expectation that Fort Anderson
would soon fall into our hands; and in
this opinion we concur.
The troops were all in splendid condi
tion and spirits, and the greatest confi
dence prevailed throughout the fleet.
The Great Auction Sale.— lt is scarce
ly necessary, we should think, to call the
attention of our readers to the advertise
ment of the immense auction sale at 153
Congress Street to-morrow ; because, as
it occupies an entire page, it calls atten
tion to itself. There will be sold on the
occasion, Boots, Shoes and Tobacco.
The former will be sold in lots of a
a dozen each, and the latter in boxes
only of 25, 50 or 100 lbs. each, Avith a
privilege of taking more. The owners
of the stock are good, fair, honest busi
ness men,' and will treat liberally with
all. They are men of excellent judg
ment, as is proved by their wise selec
tion of the Herald as an advertising me
dium—a medium unsurpassed by any
paper in the South. Jobbers will find it
to their interest to be in attendance at
the great sale, which is to close out the
stock preparatory to the reception of a
new stock of goods from the North.
The Steel Steamer Savannah. —If
our readers desire to see one of the best
specimens of the new style of Blockade
runners, let them look over the Steamer
Savannah, late the Hope, of Liverpool.—
She is constructed of steel, about 1200
tons burthen, 300 feet in length, 35 feet
beam, and 17 feet depth of hold. She is
supplied with a pair of oscillating engines,
cylinders 74 inches in diameter, and six
foot stroke. The engines are splendidly
constructed, and of immense power.—
They have driven the ship fifteen knots
an hour, under favorable circumstances—
a rate of speed rarely attained by a sea
going vessel. She is quite new, and well
fitted in every way. We understand that
her owners. Arthur Leary & Brothers, of
New .York, contemplate building a saloon
on deck, which will make her a comfort
able and commodious passenger boat. It
is not determined on what line she will
be placed. Capt. Joseph Comstock, the
well known commander of the Collins
Steamer Baltic, is in commaud, and Mr.
Gay is his chief engineer. She will prob
ably sail for New York the latter part of
the week. She is now lying at the dock
above the pontoon bridge.
