Fire in Broad street.

--Yesterday afternoon, about 3 o'clock, it was discovered that the residence of Mrs. Alex. Hill, in Broad street, opposite the City Hall, was on fire. On rushing to the premises the doors were found locked, whilst the fire was obtaining considerable headway in the interior. The doors were at once forced, and the fire, which had been kindled by the hands of an incendiary in several places, extinguished. It seems that the family were absent from the city, and had left the property in charge of a servant woman, who expected their return last evening. This woman was arrested on the charge of having set fire to the building. The damage done was considerable, both to the dwelling and the furniture within.
