Fire at Adams, N. Y.

Adams, N. Y.,Dec. 21.
--A fire broke out in this place early yesterday morning, which consumed nearly one half of the business portion of the town. Twelve buildings were burned, and property to the amount of fifty thousand dollars destroyed, of which about twenty-five thousand is covered by insurance. The fire originated in Stearns & Webster's dry goods store, from a chimney that had burnt out during the evening.

A snow plough, propelled by two locomotives, engaged in clearing the track of the Watertown and Rome Railroad of snow, ran off the track near this place yesterday morning, smashing the plough into fragments and severely injuring five or six persons employed thereon.
