Lake fire in Nashville, Tenn.

--The Nashville Union and American, of the 24th instant, says:

‘ Between three and four o'clock yesterday morning fire was discovered to be issuing from the Gordon Block, on South Market street, and shortly thereafter the Fire Department was out in full force, and by extraordinary exertions confined the fire to the block in which it originated. The block, in which there were three stores, is owned by Daniel F. Carter Esq, and was insured to the amount of $10,000--$5,000 in the Nashville Commercial Insurance, and $5,000 in Themas's Agency of the Augusta Insurance and Banking Company. His loss will be pretty heavy. One of the stores was occupied by Messrs. Rhea, Hardcastle & Co. Their stock consisted principally, we understand, of consignments. They had an insurance in Marr's agency of $5,000 on their stock. Their loss will be considerable. The adjoining store was in the occupancy of the Government.--The third store contained a lot of iron belonging, we understand, to Messrs. Yateman, Woods & Co., which was not much damaged. The origin of the fire is unknown, but is supposed to be the work of an incendiary, as there is said to have been no material in any of the stores that would produce spontaneous combustion.
