Remarkable, if true. --Yesterday a negro fellow calling himself George Washington, and professing to be the slave of Joseph Bryant, of Louisiana, was brought before the Mayor as a runaway. Wm. Michelle, a detective, stated that some weeks since the slave was put into his charge by Mr. Shepperson, freight agent on the Central road, who brought him from Trevillian's Depot.

Fires. --Between seven and eight o'clock Saturday morning a bed accidentally took fire in the house of a Mr. Reilly, on Byrd street, near the canal. At one time the house was in considerable danger, but the fire was finally extinguished without other damage than the destruction of the bed and the partial burning of a wooden mantelpiece. About half-past 8 o'clock Saturday evening a very similar fire occurred in the house of Mr. Joseph Bryant, on Broad, near 17th street. A bed was set on fire by the carelessness of a girl, but was put out before the flames had communicated to the building. The dwelling of James A. Snell, two miles east of the city, was entirely destroyed by fire on the morning of the 21d inst. Through the exertions of Capts. Hankins and Thornton's companies, of Lightfoot's battalion, a part of the furniture was saved. Mr. Snell's family lost heavily in clothing and furniture. No insurance.
