--About 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, dense volumes of smoke were seen to be pouring from the third story windows of Stebbins & Pullen's large house on 9th and Broad street. The alarm was soon after given, but before the firemen arrived, a party of young men forced opened the doors, and discovering that the fire was caused by a lump of burning coal, which had rolled from the grate and ignited the floor, extinguished the flames by means of a few buckets of water.
