False Alarm.

--Yesterday morning, about 2 o'clock, as a policeman was making his rounds on Marshall street, his attention was attracted by a great light in the eastern portion of the city, when he straightway rushed for the station-house, and commenced ringing the bell violently. This had the effect of bringing out the firemen, who in turn rushed in the direction of the light, which they found to proceed from a brick-kiln at the foot of Twenty-fourth street, where the workmen were busily engaged in burning brick, unconscious of the clatter they were raising. The firemen returned to the engine-houses, the bell soon ceased its peals, and Richmond again became quiet.
